Owens hires Hewitt as women's soccer coach


Kenny Hewitt has been named the women’s soccer coach at Owens Community College.

Hewitt becomes the second coach in program history. He succeeds Mary Whisler, who went 42-12-5 in three years.

Hewitt, of Brighton, England, has been an assistant coach with the men’s and women’s soccer programs at Carson-Newman (Tenn.) the last two years. The men’s team reached the NCAA Division II national championship game last year.

He was a four-year starter at Ashland University, helping the Eagles win three Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championships and one conference tournament title.

Hewitt will take over a program that just completed its best season at 17-2-2. The team won an NJCAA Region XII tournament championship and reached the national tournament.
