WILSON, N.C. – Thomas Goines has announced his resignation as Barton Head Women's Soccer Coach, Director of Athletics Todd Wilkinson announced today.

Goines has served as Bulldogs' mentor for the past four years, compiling 30 victories and sending the team to the Conference Carolinas Tournament in each of those seasons.  Goines will now move into his new role as Director of Coaches at the Wilson Youth Soccer Association (WYSA).

This past year, Goines led Barton to a 10-6-2 record and a trip to the league tournament semifinals.  As a seventh seed, Barton upset second-seeded North Greenville in the opening round on the road.  Barton also finished 4-0-1 in its last five contests.

"Coach Thomas Goines has been a loyal and dedicated employee at Barton College," said Wilkinson.  "His efforts to build and stabilize our women's soccer program the last four years will leave the program in great shape for the next leader of the team.  Barton thanks him for his service and we wish Thomas (Goines) nothing but the best as he begins his new role within the Wilson Community."

During his tenure at Barton, Goines has produced nine all-conference selections, two all-state honorees, one conference freshman of the year and 21 league all-academic selections.

Goines also served as Head Coach of Concordia University Chicago (2011-14) for four years.  Goines is a Concordia University Wisconsin (undergraduate) and Concordia University Irvine (master's) graduate.
