Megan Mawyer (nee Flowers), a 2005 graduate of Southern Utah, continues as VMI’s assistant coach after joining the program in August 2009. In her fifth season in Lexington, Mawyer will continue to tutor the team’s goalkeepers. Mawyer has risen to challenges in the position over the past two years, tutoring a true freshman in Mackenzie Harrmann in 2012 and former field player Amanda Berrios (who went on to three wins and a Big South Defensive POTW honor) the previous year.
A four-year starter as a goalkeeper during the inaugural years of Southern Utah’s program, Mawyer came to VMI after working most recently as goalkeeper coach for the Northern Virginia Majestics and the Virginia Olympic Development Program (ODP). She has also worked as a trainer with the Max Touch Soccer Academy and the Stafford Soccer Association, while coaching with Brentsville District High School and the PWSI ’92 Girls soccer club.
A two-time Academic All-Conference honoree at SUU, Mawyer still holds the program’s career record with 306 saves. She also ranks second in career shutouts and third in career goals-against-average in the Thunderbird record books.
