Everest Collegiate High School and Our Lady of the Lakes are excited to announce the hiring of Courtney Shegos as the varsity girls soccer coach for the Everest Collegiate/Our Lady of the Lakes co-op team. Coach Shegos takes over a successful program which was led for the past two years by Mrs. Katie Hearn. Coach Hearn led the team to the MHSAA Division 4 State title game during her time as the EC/OLL Head Coach.
Everest Collegiate athletic director, Ann Lowney, said, “Everyone at EC and OLL wants to thank Coach Hearn for leading the girls these past two years, and we wish her luck as she pursues new endeavors.”
Of our new coach, Ann said, “Everyone at Everest and Our Lady of the Lakes is excited about having Coach Shegos join our coaching staff. She is a fine young lady who I know will be an excellent coach and role model for our student-athletes. Courtney will be a coach who inspires athletes with her passion for the game and her strong Catholic values.”
Coach Shegos is a 2011 graduate of Michigan State University where she was a member of the Lady Spartans Soccer team from 2007 to 2010. She served as team co-captain during her senior season and earned Big Ten All-Academic honors during her sophomore, junior and senior season. Upon graduation Courtney interned at Michigan State as Strength and conditioning coach.
Though new to the high school coaching ranks, Shegos is no stranger to coaching youth soccer. She served as an assistant coach for the Michigan Arrows Soccer club. When told that his former player was going to take over the reins of the EC/OLL program, Michigan State Head Soccer Coach Tom Saxton stated, “We are very proud of Courtney and excited for her as she begins her coaching career. Courtney was an outstanding student-athlete at Michigan State and a co-captain in her senior year. She has great leadership qualities as well as a tremendous work ethic. I am certain she will be an excellent role model for the student-athletes at Everest/OLL. We wish her and her team all the best moving forward.”
