Third-Year Head Coach Sarah Barnes Adds NCAA Championship Experience to Staff
In 2015, Williams helped GW claim its first Atlantic 10 regular season title since 1995 after posting a perfect, 10-0-0, conference slate for the first time in program history. The squad matched a school record for victories after tallying an overall 15-5-0 record. Along the way, the Buff and Blue set a new program record with 13 consecutive victories - a mark that led the nation at the close of the regular season. With William's help, the Colonials recorded a program-best 12 shutouts, while the top defense in the A-10 posted a 0.77 goals against average on the season.
Coach Williams joined the Colonials after serving as graduate assistant and volunteer coach for the 2014 national champion Florida State women's soccer program. He also helped lead the Seminoles to the 2012 NCAA Tournament semifinals and the 2013 NCAA championship game.
Williams also coached at the high school level at his alma mater Blacksburg High School and holds a National `E' License from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). He further enhanced his knowledge of the game by achieving a National Soccer Coaches of America Association (NSCAA) National Diploma in 2014.
Prior to coaching, Williams served as a key defender at Virginia Tech, notching the second-most minutes on the backline during his final season. The Blacksburg, Virginia, native graduated in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in biological sciences. Coach Williams completed his master's in exercise physiology from Florida State in 2014. His thesis studied the impact of game fatigue on passing proficiency.
