Glenn Townsend enters his second season as the women’s head soccer coach.

He transitioned to the women’s side of the game after spending a season as an assistant for the men’s team. Townsend continued to help with the men’s program for another year after being named the assistant coach for the Lady Eagles.

The two years following Townsend’s arrival as an asisistant coach saw the Lady Eagles produce their two best seasons to date, going 25-12-2 in that span.

In his first year at the helm, Townsend took a short-handed team to a 7-13-2 finish. While the record fell short of the standard he’d set for the team, the Lady Eagles finished the year in style. Faulkner knocked off No. 4 William Carey in the opening round of the Southern States Athletic Conference tournament before edging No. 2 Mobile in penalty kicks in the league semifinals.
