WSOC: Sumoski departs Wilkes for Franklin & Marshall

After 16 seasons at the helm for  Wilkes women’s soccer, head coach John Sumoski will be moving on to Franklin and Marshall College.

“It’s been an incredible ride at Wilkes University,” Sumoski said in a Wilkes Athletics press release. “…This decision for me was very difficult. I spent weeks agonizing and while I know my passion will continue for the game and the people I serve, I’m sad to leave because of the very special realtionships that have developed with staff, faculty, student-athletes and the community.”

Wilkes enjoyed one of institution’s strongest finishes in school history as the Lady Colonels secured an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament this past fall.

The team not only clinched its first overall No. 1 seed in the conference tournament, but also won the first NCAA tournament game in program history.
