Matt Gill was hired as Huntingdon's head women's soccer coach in March 2016.
Gill’s tenure has produced one of the most successful stretches for the Lady Hawks during the NCAA era.
In his first three seasons, Gill guided the program to its first three appearances in the USA South Athletic Conference Tournament and set the program’s NCAA-era record for wins in a season.
In 2016, Gill led the Lady Hawks to their first appearance in the USA South Tournament. During his second season, Huntingdon posted its first winning season (11-7-1) of the NCAA era and reached the USA South Tournament quarterfinals for the first time.
In addition to setting the program’s NCAA-era record for wins in a season, the 2017 team also set the program’s NCAA-era records for shutouts (nine), fewest goals allowed in a season (19), most assists (22) and most points (90). The team’s 34 goals scored were the third most for Huntingdon during the NCAA era and the most since 2004.
