GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College Athletics Director Tom Palombo announced Brianna Eilman's appointment as assistant women's soccer coach Thursday. The 2012 Guilford graduate begins her coaching career alongside head coach Eric Lewis.
Eilman lettered three years in the midfield for the Quakers and earned Second Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) honors each season. She totaled 12 goals and 36 points in 47 career appearances. Her 12 assists stand 10th among Guilford's career leaders. As a senior, Eilman garnered Third Team All-South Atlantic Region recognition from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and became Guilford's first all-region pick in four years. She graduated last May with a religious studies degree.
Eilman started her college career at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2009 before heading east to Guilford. She graduated from Westside High School in Omaha, Neb., where she was a four-year soccer letter winner. Eilman also played with the Toro Magic Soccer Club.
Lewis' Quakers return 13 letter winners from last year's 10-8-2 unit that won its most games since 2006 and reached the ODAC Tournament for the 20th straight season. Guilford kicks off the 2012 campaign Sept. 1-2 at the Meredith College Labor Day Classic.
