Trevecca Athletic Director Alan Smith has announced that Brett Armstrong will coach the  Trevecca Women's Soccer Program. Armstrong will be the program’s third coach for the program’s eighth season in the fall of 2007. Well known in Middle-Tennessee soccer circles, Armstrong has coached the Christ Presbyterian Academy boys’ and girls’ high school soccer teams for the last nine seasons (1998-2007) with great success. Armstrong has a career record of 221-98-22 with the boys’ spring season yet to be completed. Armstrong led the CPA boys’ team to the A/AA State Championship in 1999 and the CPA teams to four district championships, three regional championships, and four sectional championships. The CPA boy’s A/AA State Championship in 1999 is the only state title for a team from the Midstate in that classification. Armstrong began his coaching career in middle school at CPA in 1993 and has spent the last 15 years coaching at the Brentwood, Tennessee, school.

Armstrong coached numerous all-state players and many future collegiate players while at CPA. Some of the players who went on to play college soccer are Dustin and Ryan Walker (Lipscomb); Tommy Nelms (Maryville); Chris Peak (Belmont Abbey); Cooper Wallace (played football at Auburn and ended last season with the Titans); Whitney Southard (Appalachian State); Haley Averette (Alabama-Huntsville); Leigh Graham (Covenant); Kimberly Price (now at Trevecca after playing at Belmont); Brittany Lee was a Wendy’s High School Heisman finalist in 2004.

Armstrong joined the Trevecca faculty in 2001 and teaches history and political science. He is a graduate of  Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C.; Georgia State University; and Vanderbilt. Armstrong and his wife, Leslie, and their three children live in Franklin, Tenn.

Armstrong replaces Mark Champion who resigned recently to pursue other coaching opportunities.
