TACOMA, Wash. — After coaching in the NWAC for over two decades, Jason Prenovost has announced he will step away from coaching after winning the 2018 championship with the Tacoma CC men’s soccer team. The TCC athletic director compiled a 306-97-66 record in 22 years at Tacoma and Highline College, and was on the sideline for three NWAC titles, eight division titles, and 18 years of consecutive playoff appearances.
“I have been fortunate to coach a number of great young men and soccer players during my 22 years at Highline and now Tacoma Community College,” Prenovost said. “I have learned as much from them as I could hope they have learned from me. They have made me a better coach, family man and person. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and will always be grateful to Tacoma and Highline for the opportunity they gave me and the life it has provided. Ending with a championship was nice, but it will be the memories of the journey and the people that I will always cherish.”
Prenovost joined Tacoma CC as its athletic director in 2014 after coaching at Highline College since 1994. The two-time NWAC Coach of the Year left behind a program that had only compiled two winning seasons in seven years before he took over and established it as one of the premier programs in the league.
