Jamie Duvall | Head Women's Soccer Coach
Jamie Duvall '90, enters his sixth season as women's head soccer coach at Kentucky Wesleyan College. Entering the 2016 season, Duvall needs only three victories to become the winningest coach for the women's soccer program.
For the third-straight season, Duvall compiled a 10-win season as the Panthers posted a school-record 11 victories and its first-ever trip to the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Semifinals in 2015. It's the best three-year mark in the history of the program.
In 2014, the Panthers posted a 10-7-1 record to earn a trip to the GMAC Quarterfiinals for the second-consecutive season. Paige Kramer, who was a Brown Scholar while at Kentucky Wesleyan, graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA and was the first player in program-history to garner NSCAA Academic All-American honors.
The 2013 season marked the most improved in program-history. The Panther's compliled a then-record 10 wins as they reached the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Tournament quarterfinals. It was the first ever post-season appearance for the Panthers, while the eight-win turnaround is the largest in the 23-year history of the sport. In addition, the defensive unit set the single-season shutout record (7).
He became the third alumnus to lead a Panther soccer program and the second as head women’s coach. Ty Stauffer '91 was the first coach for the women's program in 1993.
Duvall returns to KWC, where he was an assistant to the men’s and women’s team in 2007, following three seasons as assistant boys coach at Owensboro High School (2008-10).
The Owensboro native started his coaching career in 2000 as the assistant girls coach at Owensboro for two seasons before his promotion to head coach in 2002.
Duvall produced a 40-17-2 record at Owensboro High School as girl's soccer coach from 2002-04. He led the Red Devils to two district titles, two region championships and two state sub-sectional appearances in only three seasons.
He holds a United States Soccer Federation Class D Coaching License and coached fthe Owensboro United Soccer Club for the past 21 years.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Duvall. “The chance to become head coach at my alma mater in my hometown is truly an honor. I look forward to the challenge of building on the outstanding foundation built by former coach Larry Simpson."
"The women’s program has shown vast improvement in the last five years under his leadership and I hope to continue to build upon that improvement and push the program towards becoming a conference contender.”
Duvall started all four seasons for KWC where he was a four-time All-Great Lakes Valley Conference midfielder. He finished his career with a fourth-best 27 career goals including 14 as a senior.
The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) selected Duvall to their first team All-Mideast Region team in 1989.
He was a three-year starter at Owensboro High School and also played five summers for the Owensboro Athletic Soccer Club and three on the Kentucky State Select team.
