MCI WELCOMES NEW GIRLS SOCCER STAFF
Maine Central Institute (MCI) would like to announce the hiring of a new girls’ soccer coaching staff for the Fall 2019 season. Dale Overlock, of Newburgh, has been named the MCI Girls’ Varsity Head Coach.
Mr. Overlock has coached soccer at a variety of levels, most recently guiding the Bangor Christian Girls’ soccer program. At Bangor Christian, his teams improved steadily, making an appearance in a regional semifinal game in 2017. He currently serves as the boys’ jayvee basketball head coach and boys’ varsity basketball assistant at Orono High School. Mr. Overlock is the Pastor at the Steadfast Church in Bangor.
MCI’s Erin Fitts ’02 will assist Overlock this season, as well as serving as the head coach of the Girls’ jayvee soccer team at MCI. A graduate of MCI and teacher, Ms. Fitts returned to Pittsfield three years ago to teach history at the school and has served as a volunteer assistant coach for MCI girls’ soccer for the past two seasons. Ms. Fitts previously taught in Singapore, where she served as a supervising assistant to the nationally ranked St. Patrick’s School boys’ soccer team. During her tenure there, St. Patrick’s finished second and third place nationally. Both coaches are eager to begin summer soccer programming and look forward to the 2019 season.
MCI (www.MCI-school.org) is the secondary school for the towns of Pittsfield, Burnham and Detroit. MCI enrollment includes day students from 14 Maine communities, and boarding students from six states and 18 countries.
