New coach plans July 1 meeting for players

FROSTBURG — Gene Lescallette, former assistant girls soccer coach at Mountain Ridge with two decades of high school varsity coaching experience, has been named the new head coach of the girls soccer program at the Frostburg high school.

He has scheduled a meeting for all prospective players entering grades 9-12, and their parents, on Tuesday, at 6 p.m., in the school cafeteria.

“I just want to continue the tradition that’s been established here. As far as records go, they’ve set the standards for the area,’’ said Lescallette, who has been on the coaching staff for five years and was the head coach of the junior varsity team the last three seasons.

Lescallette played college football, lettering as a defensive end in 1979, and club rugby at the University of Central Florida, and has national and advanced diplomas from the National Soccer Coaches Association.

He started two high school girls varsity soccer programs, the first at Oviedo, Fla., where he coached from 1985-1996, and the second at Desert Mountain, near Scottsdale, Ariz., where he coached from 1996-2006.

Lescallette moved to the Cumberland area in 2007 and is a science teacher in the Allegany County school system.

Any prospective players unable to attend the  meeting should contact Lescallette at 240-818-6738 or by email at
