QUEENS, N.Y. – Brittany Anghel has been named the St. John’s University women’s coordinator of operations.

Anghel, 26, will manage the day-to-day operations of the program, including coordinating team travel, organizing summer camps and monitoring the team budget.

“We, at St. John’s women’s soccer, are very fortunate that Brittany has agreed to work with us,” Red Storm head coach Ian Stone said. “She is a local Long Island player that has always made the most of her opportunities as a soccer player. Brittany’s experience as a goalkeeper in the Big East, ACC, U.S. Under-23 national team, and professionally [in this country and in Sweden] make her a valuable resource to all of our student-athletes.”

The East Meadow, N.Y., native was a goalkeeper at Syracuse University from 2010-13. During her senior season, Anghel became the Orange’s all-time leader in wins (28) and shutouts (21). She was named Big East goalkeeper of the Year in 2012 and to the All-Big East first team and All-Rookie Team.

“I’m honored to be back in the college soccer environment,” Anghel said. “I am looking forward to assisting this very prestigious university in their quest for a Big East Championship.”

Anghel played on several championship teams of the Albertson Fury from 2008-10.

Following her career at Syracuse, Anghel was the starting goalkeeper for AIK Swedish before joining FC Kansas City in the National Women’s Soccer League. She spent the last three years serving as a coach for multiple programs, including the Petite Soccer Program, Under-12 Scarsdale and Impact Soccer.
