Rae Pelat - Pac West's Coach of the Year
Posted by Lindsay on November 2, 2017
Congratulations to Rae Pelat, Langara Falcons Head Coach, for being selected the Pacific Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year!
As a former player of the Falcons from 2004-2007, Rae made the announcement to step up as Head Coach on January 27th. Despite being her first role as a collegiate head coach, Rae has held a highly decorated career as a player having won two national titles and the 2006 Canadian College Athletic Association Player of the Year. As a coach, she also stands out as the former assistant coach of Douglas College from 2011 - 2016 and a current assistant coach in the Coquitlam Metro-Ford BCSPL program.
Under Pelat's direction, the Falcons were again able to secure a place in the Bronze Medal PacWest Soccer Championship game versus Vancouver Island University Mariners. Unfortunately they'd fall after a scoreless 90 minutes on PKs, but all consider the season a great success.
Congratulations to Rae on this prestigious award and we look forward to see what you accomplish next.
