The Sartell High School Girls Soccer team has a new coach – Roy Snyder.
Snyder, who was assistant coach of the team last year, is a social-studies teacher at the high school.
Before moving to Sartell in 2014, he was assistant girls’ soccer coach at St. Croix Academy in Stillwater in 2013 and head coach for the girls’ and boys’ soccer teams at Green Valley High School in Nevada from 2007-13.
Snyder was twice named Girls’ Soccer Coach of the Year in Nevada.
Synder will replace Cassie Raehsler, who recently announced her retirement from coaching soccer. Raehsler served as head coach for two years. She replaced long-time girls’ soccer head coach Joe Perske. Raehsler led the Sabres to two back-to-back state tournament competitions. She was also named Class A Minnesota Soccer Coach of the Year.
