Elijah Denton enters his fifth year as the head women’s soccer coach at Pfeiffer in 2014. Denton guided the Falcons to a Conference Carolinas Tournament Championship and a bid to the NCAA Tournament in 2013, the second time he has led Pfeiffer to the NCAA’s. Denton has reached the double-digit win mark in four of his first five years at the helm.
The Falcons have finished no lower than fifth in conference play over Denton’s first four seasons, including a second-place tie in 2010. Denton, who served as the Falcons assistant coach from 2007-10, owns a 45-30-7 overall record and a sparkling 28-11-5 record in the conference. Last season, Denton coached three players to the All-Region team and has coached back-to-back Conference Carolinas Freshman of the Year.
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, reside in Greensboro with their sons Andrew and Dax, and daughter Kyla.
