The key to the success of the soccer program is the commitment of new and returning athletes. The passion you bring for the game is what could make you a valuable addition to the squad.

Skill Development & Teamwork

The program's runs to the elite New England Tournament, and the 2007 Founders League title are built upon a focus on an understanding and appreciation for the game, various strategies, and a team-first approach.

Leadership & Character Development

An important aspect of the soccer program, and all sports at Kent School, is the focus on learning, character development, and respect for self and others. We are proud of our commitment to these noble ideals and recognition of these efforts was recognized by our soccer officials organization who presented us with the 2022 Ted Alex Team Sportsmanship Award, the program's fourth such recognition in Coach Klingebiel's tenure.

Coach Olivia Pena

Olivia Pena serves Kent as the Head Coach of Girls Varsity Soccer and Assistant Director of Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity.

Olivia graduated from Pingree School in South Hamilton, MA, winning two Class C and a Class B NEPSAC Championships during her high school career.  Olivia earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Bowdoin College with a minor in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies, where she was named to the NESCAC All-Academic team four times as a soccer player. 

Coach Pena values the multiplicity and the diversity of strengths within each student at Kent. Regardless of each player's strengths and weaknesses, Olivia Pena explains that her "favorite part of coaching at Kent is the  culture that empowers and encourages each member of the community to be their best while still acknowledging and supporting individuals in the areas that need support. As a coach, my job is to help shape and facilitate an environment in which my players feel cared for, challenged, and supported by all those around them!" 

Coach Pena's coaching philosophy is to create a team that operates as a system that highlights the strengths of each member while minimizing the effects of the areas of our team that need development. In order to create such a system, the focus must be centered on technique, support, and communication. 

In addition to coaching girls varsity soccer and working in the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Olivia Pena is a member of the English department, coaching girls varsity tennis, and lives in Middle Dorm South.

Win 7-2
A beautiful afternoon for the home opener found the Lions take charge at the opening whistle. Despite the pressure, the Saints defense stood firm throughout the first half until Eva M launched a free kick into the box that ricocheted in at the 16 minute mark. Eva doubled the lead ten minutes later on a blast from the left flank, but the visitors were undeterred, responding quickly with a decisive counter attack goal. The tight match opened up in the first minute of the second half when Violet Q pounced on a loose ball in the box. Later Phoena D curled in a beautiful shot from the top of the box for her first while 3rd formers Bella C and Abby V rounded out the scoring late.

Fearing the arrival of hurricane Ophelia, Kent hosted Ethel Walker in an evenly matched game that found the visitors outworking Kent for much of the first forty minutes to build a two goal lead at the break. The Lions adjusted to the wet conditions in the second half and came back on goals by Grace L and Phoena D but despite a number of terrific saves by Mia M were unable to come out on top.

Fortunately, the Lions found their footing and held the Martlets at bay the rest of the half. Mia M made some strong saves (17 on the day) to keep the score tight. The second half had more give and take but the hosts continued to show their quality with a pair of beautiful goals from distance. Kaya N had Kent's best chance from a free kick outside the eighteen late in the game but her shot rang off the cross bar and was cleared.

Tie 3-3
With tropical rains subsiding in time to drain off of Phillips Field, Kent and Berkshire played an evenly matched tale of two halves. Coming out strong, the Lions controlled much of the first period, with El C breaking the ice when she swiped a pass at the top of the box and ripped a shot into the upper right corner of the net. Caitlin P doubled the lead for the home team blasting a shot from the right side of the box that deflected in. Kaya N. appeared to seal the game for Kent when she launched a shot from outside the 18 and into the back of the net. Unfortunately, the Bears did not get the memo and notched one with a minute to go in the first half on a strong shot from 25m out. The second stanza found the visitors firmly on the front foot and come all the way back to tie the match with fourteen minutes to go. The tie gave the home team the initiative to get back in gear and great chances by Eva M, Casey B and Grace L nearly put the team back in front to no avail.

Tie 1-1
On a blisteringly hot October afternoon, Kent and Millbrook both moved the ball quickly and with purpose. The visitors got off to an early lead when Kaya N cranked a long distance set piece on frame and just over the keeper. While it seemed at the time like that was to be the first of many for the Lions, the score woke the Mustang attack into high gear and they tied it up on a breakaway shortly before half time. Both keepers made some good saves late to keep the score knotted the rest of the way.

The Wyverns tied things up late in the second half on a PK. Kent had a number of good chances to pull ahead, including a great shot from El C that rang off the crossbar, but K-O forced Mia M into some challenging saves to keep things level at the end.
