Athletic Director and Coach Maureen McVey has been selected as one of thirteen Missouri Sports Hall of Fame inductees for 2014. Of the female soccer coaches in the state, Coach McVey has more wins in girls’ soccer than anyone else. She reached the 500-win plateau in May 2012 when her Angels won in overtime in the Missouri Class 3 quarterfinals. Her teams have won four state titles, the most recent this past June over St Teresa Academy on Anna Martin’s goal in the second overtime period. Her teams have reached 12 final fours, and her 2002 team at St. Joe went 26-0-1 and was the presumptive U.S. champion, according to the National Soccer Coaches Association of American rankings at the end of the season. McVey also was the first woman ever inducted into the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame.
The induction ceremony will be held Thursday November 16 in a special event being held in St Charles (the Missouri Hall of Fame is located in Springfield, MO). A total of thirteen individuals and two American Legion baseball teams will be inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in ceremonies at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, MO. In addition, the Hall will name its prestigious President’s Award recipient and announce a very deserving Special Award winner. Mercy is the title sponsor of the special event.
