Head Women’s Soccer Coach
Mount Marty College ’04
Clay Glasgow became the third women’s soccer coach in Dakota Wesleyan history when he was hired to take over the program in January.
Glasgow comes to Dakota Wesleyan with a resume full of soccer experience as a coach at all levels as well as a player. Most recently, Glasgow, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, was an assistant coach for the Augustana College women’s soccer team, as well as the varsity girls’ soccer coach at Sioux Falls Roosevelt High School.
Glasgow wrapped up his sixth year as an assistant at Augie in 2013, and helped the Vikings to a 10-8-1 record. He helped with recruiting and game analysis, as well as the organization of indoor tournaments and summer camps. Augustana went 54-40-11 in the regular season in his tenure.
At Roosevelt, Glasgow has been the head coach since the 2008 season. In his seven seasons with the Rough Riders, including one as the junior varsity coach, Roosevelt is 66-22-9 and won the 2012 and 2013 Class AA state titles. In those two seasons, Roosevelt went undefeated for 25 games. Glasgow has coached many Class AA All-State selections, and his team overall GPA is better than 3.5.
Glasgow also coaches the Dakota Alliance U13 girls’ team. He played soccer collegiately at Brewton Parker College in Mount Vernon, Ga., before transferring to Mount Marty College for his final two seasons from 2002-04. He earned All-GPAC First Team honors and was named the team’s MVP. He also played for the Sioux Falls Spitfire Premier Developmental team from 2004-06. He is B-license certified through the United State Soccer Federation.
Glasgow is the third head coach in Tiger women’s soccer history. He inherits a program that went 4-12-2 overall and 1-8-1 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference in 2013. Junior Thara Ali Said set the record for goals in a game with four, and, as a team, the Tigers set the record for shots on goal in a game with 24. Senior goalie Erika Carpenter graduated as the school record holder for most saves in a season with 142 in 2013.
Seniors Linsey Peterson and Lindsey Corrin and Ali Said all earned All-GPAC Honorable Mention accolades, and Ali Said also earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors. Ali Said and junior Kylie Keiser earned Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete status.
Glasgow and his wife, Andrea, currently live in Sioux Falls.
Student Assistant Soccer Coach
Kasha Roberts begins her second season as student assistant coach for the Dakota Wesleyan women’s soccer team after a very successful four-year playing career with the Tigers.
She spent the past summer playing for the Dayton Dutch Lions FC – a soccer team in Dayton, Ohio. The Lions are a part of the United Soccer League’s W-League, and is the highest level of play for female soccer players in the U.S.
Roberts, a Rapid City, S.D. native, was a four-year starter at forward and midfield for the Tigers. She earned All-GPAC honors three times – first-team accolades in 2009 and 2010 and second-team honors in 2011. Roberts was part of the Tigers’ most successful stretch in school history, and helped DWU to an undefeated record and a berth in the NAIA National Championships in 2009.
Roberts holds the school record for goals in a season (15) and is tied for the record for goals in a career (38) and points (6) and goals (3) in a game.
Roberts is currently finishing her degree in sport, exercise and wellness at Dakota Wesleyan.
