Kenyon Meyer, who had the Assumption soccer program among the state’s top teams for the past 15 seasons, announced he’s stepped down as head coach in order to spend more time with his family.
“Kenyon has been a great asset to the Assumption community for 15 years,” Assumption athletic director Angela Passafiume said in a news release. “We completely understand his decision to step down from the position and be more available for his wife and four children.”
Meyer posted a 210-91-28 record at Assumption, winning nine district titles and four regional championships. His 2004 and 2005 squads reached the state semifinals.
The Rockets finished 16-6-3 last season, falling to eventual state champion Sacred Heart 1-0 in the Seventh Region final.
Passafiume said the school will begin a search for Meyer’s replacement after the holidays.
Meyer is one of four longtime girls soccer coaches in the Louisville area to announce their resignations this off-season, joining Manual’s Rick Underwood, North Oldham’s Ann Revell and Oldham County’s Dan Schulz.
