WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A former four-year Demon Deacon student-athlete, Courtney Owen returns in 2016 as a volunteer assistant coach, head women's soccer coach Tony da Luz announced Monday.

"I am delighted Courtney is joining our staff," da Luz said. "She brings so much positive energy wherever she goes and is a lot of fun to be around. She will be a great mentor for our players because of her experience here at Wake Forest, and she has a strong work ethic our players will respect."

Owen played at Wake Forest from 2010-13, increasing her role on the team each season. She appeared in 25 total games, including 16 her senior season. Her first-career goal came in her final home game, a game-winner against Morehead State in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

"I'm really excited to be back at Wake Forest and to have the opportunity to be in a new role as a member of the coaching staff," Owen said. "I can't thank Tony enough for having me back and I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to be a part of such a prestigious soccer program and university. The soccer team has a long history of success and I look forward to being able to help the program and players continue to achieve success."

A 2014 cum laude graduate of Wake Forest with a degree in psychology, Owen joined the coaching ranks in 2014, working as a coach at Twin City Soccer Academy in Winston-Salem. She then served as assistant coach both with Lake Braddock Secondary School and Braddock Road Youth Club in Virginia from 2015-16.

While at Wake Forest, she was heavily involved in the team's soccer camps, serving as an instructor for three years before working as camp director in 2014. She also served as an intern in the Deacon Club in 2013.



Owen spent two years working as a human resource and marketing coordinator for BrigliaHundley, P.C. in Tysons Corner, Virginia, before returning to Winston-Salem.
