Coach Marti Kingsley Announces Resignation

March 9th, 1998 by Adam

Kingsley, who is also PSC’s Senior Athletic Woman Administrator, will step down at the end of the school year. She guided the Panther women’s soccer team to three
consecutive post-season berths, including an NCAA regional spot in 1997 when she was named Regional Coach of the Year.

“Marti is retiring from coaching after 15 fruitful years,” said Bamford. “I accepted her letter of resignation with deep regret and certainly wish her success along her new career
path.”

Kingsley took over at PSC in the summer of ’95, and guided the soccer team to a three-year mark of 41-12-6. She led her first Panther soccer team to the ECAC New England
title, and took the team back to the ECAC Tournament title in ’96, winning Little East Conference titles both seasons. The team reached the greatest success under Kingsley in ’97
earning the top seed in the NCAA Regional Tournament before being ousted by Colby.

Kingsley also led the Panther women’s basketball squads to seasons of 15-11, 11-14 and 11-13. PSC made it to the Little East Conference semi-finals in 1996, but was
eliminated in the first-round in ’97 and ’98.

“We will miss Marti’s positive attitude, high energy and strong work ethic,” said Bamford. “She has been one of our most effective recruiters, and certainly a goodwill ambassador
for PSC Athletics. She also deserves recognition for organizing and implementing the NCAA Champs Life Skills program here at PSC. I personally will miss the collegial relationship
we had in her role as Senior Woman Administrator.”

Bamford indicated that he is currently accepting applications for the positions, and hopes to name a new coach within the next month.
