With the experience she gained at Delaware, she will be nothing but a positive influence on our program."

"I'd like to thank Coach Muntz for giving me the opportunity to come in and work with the goalkeepers," said Fearnbach. "I couldn't be more excited about accepting a coaching position at Wesley. There is nothing like coming home to coach, so to be back at my alma mater is extremely special to me. Having played here, I understand and appreciate the history of the program and the dedication required for it to be successful. I'm truly looking forward to using my past coaching experiences to help contribute and continue to grow our program here at Wesley."
