Peay's first season with men's soccer ends with 5-11-2 record

The University of Richmond men's soccer team finished its season 5-11-2, playing all year under the direction of two new coaches. Head coach Clint Peay and assistant coach Todd Herman were new to the Richmond men's soccer program when the season began. Before coming to Richmond, Peay was an assistant coach at George Mason University, Davidson College and Georgetown University; Herman also served as an assistant coach at Davidson. "It was a much more enjoyable season under the new coaches," team captain and senior Fynn Glover said, adding that it had definitely been a transitional season as well. Peay said this season gave him a chance to instill his philosophies into the team's training, and for the players to understand what was expected of them. "It's a continual building process," he said. Not all of the players were thrilled about having new coaches. "You have to prove yourself again," senior Stephen Chareczko said, comparing it to starting over again as a freshman. If players had questions, Chareczko said, the coaches would seem very distant and would barely offer any positive or negative criticism. Senior Malcolm Joseph said class conflicts caused problems for players during the season. "This year was not as well organized as the other years," Joseph said.
