Following an extensive nationwide search, Daytona Beach native, Samantha Bohon was selected to lead the Embry-Riddle women’s soccer program in 2007, making her only the second head coach in program history.
In six seasons with the Eagles, Bohon has led the Blue and Gold to six consecutive postseason appearances. After finishing third in The Sun Conference regular season standings in 2007 and 2008, the Eagles captured a share of the conference crown in 2009, earning Bohon league Co-Coach of the Year honors. The following season, Bohon won the award outright as the Blue and Gold finished second in a very tight league race.
Embry-Riddle secured spots in the NAIA National Championship as tournament hosts in 2007 and 2008. In 2009, the Eagles defeated tournament favorite Northwood on their home field to claim the conference tournament title and earn an automatic bid to the national tournament. A year later, Bohon coached her squad to a repeat of that performance as ERAU took another road win against the Seahawks to return to the national tournament for the fourth straight year.
