On the heels of a tremendous season, The John Carroll School Coach Jim Fendryk was named Maryland Private/Parochial High School Coach of the Year by United Soccer Coaches.
To qualify for consideration for the award, a coach must be a member of United Soccer Coaches, have a successful record and exhibit: knowledge of the game; rapport with the team, other coaches and officials; team image; positive conduct on the field; involvement in the sport and in the community; and a cooperative relationship with the media. Winners are selected by coaches in their state.
Coach Fendryk is in his 13th season as head coach at The John Carroll School, where he also teaches Social Studies. Prior to taking over for the Patriots, Coach Fendryk spent five years as an assistant coach for the nationally ranked CCBC Essex Men’s Soccer program, which included two appearances in the NJCAA National Quarterfinals.
This past fall, under Coach Fendryk the Patriots boys soccer team had a phenomenal season, going 18-2-2 and making it all the way to the MIAA A Conference championship game before ultimately falling to Calvert Hall, a team ranked #2 in the country.
Congratulations to Coach Fendryk on this tremendous accomplishment!
