Former Lady Buc Rostin Returns to CSU as Assistant CoachMay 26, 2008
By CSU Sports Information
Women’s soccer head coach Eric Terrill recently announced that Christina Rostin, the former Christi Arnold (Charleston Southern class of 2001), will be returning to Buccaneer Field as the team’s assistant coach beginning this fall.
Rostin had a very prolific four year career while playing for Terrill and the Lady Bucs from 1997 through 2000. Over the course of her four seasons, Rostin appeared in 62 games (starting on 41 occasions) and scored 19 goals and recorded 43 points in the process. The 19 goals currently ranks Rostin eighth all-time on the CSU goal scoring list, while 43 points is good enough for ninth place all-time in that particular offensive category.
After concluding her eligibility, Rostin also served as an assistant coach at CSU during the 2001 season while completing her Bachelor’s degree in social science. The 2001 season was one of the Lady Bucs’ most successful campaigns in program history, as Terrill’s team finished with a 4-1-1 conference record in earning second place in the Big South in the regular season.
Since leaving CSU, in addition to coaching with the South Carolina Olympic Development program and serving as the head coach of various age levels at the Mt. Pleasant Soccer Club, Rostin has worked as the soccer coordinator for the Mt. Pleasant Recreation Department. As the soccer coordinator, Rostin has been responsible for overseeing all aspects of one of the largest participatory soccer programs in the state, which sees 4,000 participants take the field annually. Rostin also has been responsible for the creation of the “Mt. Pleasant Developmental program,” a program designed to encourage soccer development amongst children ages seven through 10 in Mt. Pleasant.
Rostin and Terrill will have the opportunity to coach a talented Buccaneer squad that returns all key personnel from a 2007 squad that finished 5-2 in the Big South and 12-6-1 overall and tied program records for consecutive wins (six) and wins in a season.
