Fontbonne's Hoener Notches 200th Career Win

When the Griffins netted their second goal against Oakland City Wednesday evening, Fontbonne women's soccer head coach Brian Hoener was eight minutes away from achieving his 200th career victory. The 16-year veteran has earned every win at Fontbonne, also his alma mater. At this time we'd like to shed some light on Hoener's career achievements as they continue to build.

Brian was the men's head coach from 2000-2014 and has been the women's head coach since 2011, having compiled a 155-107-33 men's record and 45-35-6 women's record for an overall coaching record of 200-142-39 during his 20-season tenure. He is the fourth coach in SLIAC history to amass 200 wins and has the second-most career victories among current coaches.
