Powerhouse Team Cultivates Leadership
The girls’ soccer program is one built on championships. In addition to the cache of Miami Valley Conference, district and regional crowns, The Silver Knights have won three state championships (2011, 2015, 2017.) Since Oct. 13, 2011, The Summit has only two losses inside MVC play.
At a powerhouse like that, the student-athletes eat, drink and breathe soccer, right? Not exactly.
The priority within the program is cultivating leadership. When student-athlete initiative is strong a particular year, so too is soccer success. As a team, the program’s success is hard to match. However, the program is equally good at preparing players for the next level.
Mike Fee has been the head coach of the Silver Knights’ girls’ varsity soccer team since the 2001 season. In that time, The Summit has won three state championships (2011, 2015, 2017), has had numerous players be recognized on a local, regional, state and national level (6 all-Americans) and has had dozens of players compete at the collegiate level. Fee, the longest tenured coach at The Summit, has compiled a 254-93-34 record through 2019 season. He’s won more than 71 percent of his games. Coach Fee was nationally recognized by being named as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) 2015 Girls' Private/Parochial National Coach of the Year. He currently serves as the President of the Southwest Ohio Soccer Coaches Association and is a member of the state board. Coach Fee currently holds a NSCAA National Diploma and a US Soccer D coaching license. He currently works at The Summit as the Upper School guidance counselor. Mike is assisted by Keith Harring, Jen McGrath, Eric Unwin, Megan Luiso and Scott Mays.
