Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School has turned to a widely known figure to lead its varsity girls soccer program.
The Hurricanes athletics department announced the hiring of Kacey White — a former United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) member and NCAA All-American and National Champion, who also has a lengthy coaching resume as USWNT assistant coach and collegiate coaching.
Most recently, the 36-year-old White served as a development academy director for the Brandon-based West Florida Flames youth soccer club.
She previously served as head coach at Xavier University and Wisconsin-Green Bay, and held assistant positions at Oklahoma, Southern Methodist and Texas Tech, respectively.
White has a decorated background as a player. She was a member of the University of North Carolina’s 2003 national championship team, a two-time All-American (2004,2005) and three-time All-ACC selection. Following her graduation, White earned a spot on the USWNT, where she earned 17 caps and served as an alternate for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She also played professionally for six years in both the United States and Sweden.
