Remembering Dominic Garguile – Coach, Champion and Spirit of Women’s Soccer at WWU
Dominic Garguile served as the head Women’s Soccer coach at Western from 1981-1990 and finished his coaching career with an impressive 106-43-12 record. In his first year coaching, Dominic helped transition the WWU squad from an ad-hoc club team to a varsity NAIA team through his passion, persistence, and collaboration with Athletic Director Lynda Goodrich. His teams won three straight NAIA District 1 titles from 1983-85 and he led the team to a 38-match winning streak from September 1982 to October 1984, the longest of any sport in school history. He was named the Northwest Collegiate Soccer Conference Coach of the Year in 1983 and NAIA District 1 Coach of the Year in 1984. He coached 15 All-Americans.
Dominic has influenced, inspired, and positively impacted the lives of countless student-athletes who owe some degree of their individual success to the lessons learned playing for WWU and Dominic. With this in mind, now is the chance for all who have been motivated and encouraged by Dominic to show their gratitude with a lasting gift toward an endowment scholarship in his name. The Dominic Garguile Women’s Soccer Scholarship Endowment will forever honor the legacy of this great coach and exemplary man. We hope you will join us to help raise $25,000 to provide scholarship support to the women who have followed us and represent Western so well.
