Put me in, coach!

Irma Garcia, director of athletics at St. Francis College, let the O know that Justine Lombardi has been hired as the school’s first women’s soccer head coach.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Justine Lombardi to our family here at St. Francis Brooklyn. Justine brings a pedigree of winning and a tremendous work ethic to our program, which is set to hit the field in the fall of 2019. Her passion for the sport and ability to recruit will help St. Francis College grow in the years to come,” said Garcia.

Justine joins the staff after serving as a women’s soccer assistant coach at her alma mater Quinnipiac University for the past six seasons. While at Quinnipiac, Lombardi played an integral role in the recruiting efforts of prospective student-athletes. She was also responsible for overseeing training aspects of the team, both physically and mentally throughout each season.

Justine added her excitement at coming to St. Francis, saying: “The opportunity to start something from square one is always a great undertaking, and this will be no exception, but it is something I have dreamed of doing and that I think will be extremely satisfying — I am honored to have been chosen by Irma and the athletics department as the person to get this program off the ground and excited to create something special in the city of Brooklyn,” she concluded.
