Player Profile

Assistant Coach

Alma mater:
Drake '10

Elizabeth Woerle joined the Ohio University soccer program as an assistant coach in July 2013.

Woerle completes a unique coaching situation for the Bobcats, becoming the third former professional soccer player on the current coaching staff. The native of Coon Rapids, Minn., played professional soccer with 1. FC Lübars of the Frauen Regionalliga in Germany during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. Along with Aaron Rodgers (multiple season in the United Soccer Leagues) and Allison Whitworth (multiple seasons in Women's Professional Soccer), Woerle completes a coaching staff which is the only one in the Mid-American Conference comprised entirely of former professional players.

While in Germany, Woerle made 11 appearances for 1. FC Lübars in domestic competition. She scored one goal during this time, finding the back of the net in the 90th minute of a 3-1 win over Magdeburger FFC on Oct. 23, 2011. The midfielder also made one appearance for her club during a domestic cup match, playing 23 minutes against FSV Gütersloh.

Prior to her time in Germany, Woerle was a standout player at Drake University. Elizabeth appeared in 87 matches for the Bulldogs, scoring 22 goals (eight game-winners) and dishing out eight assists. She was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference Freshman Team (2006), Second Team (2008), and First Team (2009). She was a significant participant on the 2006 team which won the MVC regular-season championship and qualified for the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
