Head Coach: Nick Juengert
Nick Juengert seeks to maintain Stockton’s standing as one of the top teams in the NJAC and region as he begins his ninth year as the head coach of the Ospreys. Juengert, whose team went 13-8-2 last season, led the Ospreys to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances from 2006-09, equaling a standard previously set by the Ospreys from 1995-98.
He also notched his 100th victory at Stockton when his troops shut out Kean 2-0 on October 31, 2009 in the first round of the NJAC tournament. The Ospreys later advanced to the NJAC championship game for the third straight time. In 2008, Juengert coached the Ospreys to 18 wins, a berth in the NJAC title game for the second year in a row and a third consecutive NCAA Tournament at-large bid.
Stockton went 18-4-2, reached the NJAC tournament finals for the first time and earned its second consecutive at-large NCAA berth in 2007. The Ospreys flirted with the school record of 19 wins both years, falling just one game short. Juengert coached his 2006 team to a 15-5-3 record and an NCAA Tournament bid in a campaign featured an eight-game unbeaten streak and an eight-win improvement over the 2005 rebuilding season that featured 17 freshmen.
Juengert guided the Ospreys to a tie for second place in the NJAC and a 14-6-2 record in 2004. Wins over Kean and Drew gave Stockton its third consecutive ECAC Metro title and second with Juengert on the bench. Juengert made an impressive debut as Stockton’s head coach in 2003 as the Ospreys jumped out to a 7-0 start that included an upset of second-ranked Messiah. They achieved a #6 national ranking in September and later won the 2003 ECAC Metro championship, capping a successful first campaign for their new mentor at 15-4-2.
Juengert took over the Stockton women’s program following a six-year stint as an assistant men’s soccer coach at Rider University, where he helped the Broncs win MAAC championships and earn NCAA Tournament berths in 1997 and 1998. Prior to joining the Rider staff, Juengert went 73-32-7 in six seasons as the head men’s coach at Burlington County College. In 1996, the Barons finished as the national runner-up and Juengert was named the NSCAA Junior College National Coach of the Year, Region XIX Coach of the Year and Garden State Athletic Conference Coach of the Year.
Juengert also completed assistant coaching stints at Burlington CC, SUNY New Paltz and Willingboro High School, and he has worked with the New Jersey Olympic Development Program and the Medford Strikers. As a player, Juengert earned two letters apiece in soccer at Burlington County College and Rutgers University. He possesses a bachelor’s degree in physical education and sports management from Rutgers.
