Scott McKenzie is one of the most tenured coaches at Juniata College entering his 17th season as the head coach of the women’s soccer program and the 25th of his career. McKenzie also serves as an Associate Athletics Director for Athletic Communications and is the director of outdoor facilities.

 

In the 2013 season, McKenzie led the Eagles to new heights setting a program record for wins, finishing 14-6, while scoring 55 goals for a new single season team record. Juniata finished second in the Landmark Conference regular season and made the teams’ first return to the postseason tournament since 2010.

 

Coach McKenzie’s Eagles also earned an Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III South Region Tournament appearance, the second in program history, and along the way three different Juniata players earned Landmark Player of the Week, including one ECAC Regional Player of the Week award, and three Second-Team All-Landmark selections.

 

Since taking over the reigns of Juniata soccer in the spring of 2000, McKenzie’s women’s teams have posted six winning seasons and on October 1, 2014 he earned his 100th win after a 3-0 victory over Westminster College. The Eagles have steadily improved since McKenzie took control and on September 16, 2008 Juniata received the programs’ first ever Adidas/NSCAA Middle Atlantic Regional ranking after earning the program's first wins over regionally ranked opponents.

 

McKenzie has brought not only a new level of athletic excellence, but also a high academic standard to the Juniata team as reflected by 12 consecutive National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Team Academic awards.  McKenzie spent three years on the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Committee from 2006-09 and served as the committee chair during the 2009-10 academic year.

 

McKenzie arrived on College Hill after a successful career at Southern Vermont College during which he amassed a 60-71-10 overall record, claimed the school’s first ever conference title in a women’s sport, and earned three 10-win seasons and four conference tournament berths in his final four seasons. In May of 2013 McKenzie became just the 25th member of the Southern Vermont College/St. Joseph’s College Athletics Hall of Fame.

 

McKenzie resides in Huntingdon with his wife Renata and their two daughters, Kirstin and Shannon.
