Holy Family is committed to providing one of the best high school girls soccer programs Minnesota has to offer. The team is coached by Michael Murray and his assistant coaches Cassie Phillips and Ashley Kirkpatrick. This team is focused on hard work and determination. They are a part of the Wright County Conference and of Section 6A. The team practices every day after school with games on weekdays and also on weekends.
Numerous Fire girls soccer players have received all-conference, all-section, and All-State awards. Alumni continue to play in D1 programs such as Northern Illinois University and Bucknell University.
Coach Murray arrives at Holy Family with a wealth of experiences at Catholic schools across the country. A product of Conwell Eagan High School, in suburban Philadelphia, Murray excelled in soccer and in the classroom – earning admission to the University of Notre Dame where he earned Academic All-American honors, with a double-major in Physics and Mathematics. Murray went on to receive a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame’s prestigious Alliance for Catholic Education program.
Since 2014, Murray has been teaching at Bishop Dunne Catholic School in the Diocese of Dallas, Texas. During his time in Dallas he served as a varsity assistant and junior varsity soccer coach, and a mentor to high school student athletes from all walks of life.
