Heinz leaving VSU soccer program


The first ever soccer coach in Valdosta State history is ready for another challenge.

VSU announced Tuesday head soccer coach Mel Heinz is leaving the program to take a business opportunity in Atlanta.

Heinz was named the program's first head coach in 2011, and in three seasons, took the Blazers to two NCAA Tournament appearances and a Gulf South Conference championship game.

She was named the conference coach of the year in her first season and developed ten all conference players.

VSU will begin a search for Heinz replacement in the coming weeks.
