Eva Meredith was appointed as the faculty head coach of women's soccer at Wesleyan for the 2004 season and will be in her 11th season in 2014. She holds the rank of adjunct associate professor in the physical education department.
Eva coached at the University of Hartford for six years before coming to Wesleyan, her first three as assistant women's soccer coach and the last three as head coach. During her Hartford tenure, the Hawks won three American East conference titles and competed in the NCAA Division I championships five times. In 2008 and 2009, Eva guided Wesleyan to its first back-to-back winning seasons in 15 years and led the Cardinals to their first-ever winning NESCAC ledger in 2010. The Cardinals reached the NESCAC semifinals in both 2011 and 2012 and have participated in six straight NESCAC tournaments.
An outstanding soccer player both on the national level in her home country of Sweden and as a collegian at Franklin Pierce College in New Hampshire, Eva was a National Team player for Sweden from 1989-1991 and a premier league player there from 1986-1992. Attending Franklin Pierce from 1992-1995, Eva was a four-time all-New England choice, a three-time All-American and the NCAA Division II National Player of the Year as a freshman. She also was a two-time academic All-American and was a three-year team captain as Franklin Pierce captured NCAA titles in both 1994 and 1995.
In addition to coaching at Hartford, Eva directed the Lady Hawk Soccer School each of her years at Hartford. She now conducts the Summertime Sports Soccer Academy at Wesleyan each summer.
