Summit Christian Academy has hired Amber Siemsen as the head coach of the varsity girls’ soccer team.
“Coach Siemsen has been an incredible asset to our school in many areas and already has a wonderful rapport with our students, so we are excited about her serving as the coach of the girls soccer team,” SCA Athletic Director Jake said.
Siemsen, fondly known as “Coach Ammo” by those who knew her early on as an aggressive player, is an SCA alumni and former college athlete who played both soccer and basketball at Hannibal-LaGrange University on scholarship. Siemsen’s athleticism and work ethic were observed during her high school tenure at SCA where she competed as an athlete in both soccer and basketball. Also as an SCA student, Siemsen served as a coach to the elementary basketball team.
“I am looking forward to the soccer season this spring as our high school continues to grow,” Siemsen said. “I see a lot of potential in all of the girls, returning and new. I am excited about our conditioning during the off-season and to see what God has in store for us both on and off the field.”
