Jefferson Hales returns to the Saint Michael's women's soccer coaching staff for his third season as an assistant coach in 2019.
Saint Michael's had a pair of 1-1 comeback ties in 2018, while a third deadlock was a scoreless draw on home turf against 11th-ranked Franklin Pierce University. Four contests went down as 1-0 setbacks during the fall.
The Purple Knights started 3-3-1 in 2017, with each of those contests being decided by one goal or less. Saint Michael's later lost only 1-0 to No. 8 Adelphi University, one of their 13 instances of yielding two goals or fewer. The Purple and Gold posted its best save total in eight years, highest save percentage in seven, and lowest goals-against average in five.
