Matt Garrett is entering his ninth season as head coach of Gettysburg’s women’s soccer team in 2015. Garrett is the third head coach in the 26-year history of the program and owns a 83-49-15 (.616 winning percentage) record through his first eight campaigns, including a 53-22-5 mark in the highly competitive Centennial Conference (CC).
Under Garrett, the Bullets have won at least 12 matches and have competed in the postseason in each of the last five seasons. They have also logged a record of 39-9-2 against Centennial foes over the same span. The team enjoyed an outstanding season in 2014, finishing 13-4-2 and earning an at-large berth in the NCAA Division III Tournament. Gettysburg also went 9-0-1 in the Centennial Conference to place first in the CC standings, marking the top finish for the Bullets under Garrett. With their first-place finish, the Bullets also captured the top seed in the CC playoffs and the right to host the conference tournament. Garrett was honored as the 2014 Centennial Conference Coach of the Year.
Garrett arrived at Gettysburg following a three-year assistant-coaching stint with the men’s soccer team at his alma mater, NCAA Division II Slippery Rock University. During his tenure, the team qualified for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) playoffs for the first time in 20 years and won its first championship in 30 seasons. The team made the PSAC playoffs again in 2006.
