Elijah Denton enters his fourth year as the head women’s soccer coach at Pfeiffer in 2013. Denton guided the Lady Falcons to the Conference Carolinas Championship game last year and led Pfeiffer to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2010.
The Falcons have finished no lower than fifth in conference play over Denton’s first three seasons, including a second-place tie in 2010. Denton, who served as the Falcons assistant coach from 2007-10, owns a 32-23-6 overall record and a sparkling 22-8-5 record in the conference. He has placed four players on the All-Conference First Team and coached two players to Second Team honors. Last season, Denton guided Aaliyah Jackson to the Freshman of the Year award.
Prior to his time at Pfeiffer, Denton was the men’s and women’s varsity soccer coach at Covenant Classical School and also began the school’s baseball program. Denton has also coached for FC Carolina Alliance for five years and has worked with NC Olympic Development.
Denton graduated from UNC Greensboro in 2001 with a degree in Applied Mathematics. He and his wife Sarah, Pfeiffer’s volunteer assistant coach and Director of Student Life and Ministries, reside in Misenheimer with their sons Andrew and Dax, and daughter Kyla.
