Century hires new soccer coaches


To fill the openings left by the departure of Ryan Okerson, Century High School announced Wednesday the hirings of Laura Hertz and Stephane Guillaume as the program’s new girls and boys soccer coaches, respectively.

Hertz has a long playing career at both the collegiate and professional levels. She started at NJCAA DI Navarro College, moved to the University of Texas-San Antonio, and played for Alamo SC in the Women’s Premier Soccer League.

Hertz has coached and refereed at several youth levels. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Minot State and a master’s degree in forest resources and conservation from the University of Florida.

Hertz assumes command of a Century soccer team that finished sixth in last year’s West Region regular season standings (5-10-1, 4-9-1 for 13 points) and missed advancing to the state tournament for the first time in history.
