Cal Poly Pomona names new soccer assistant

Cal Poly Pomona head women’s soccer coach Isabelle Harvey has named Erin Reinke as Broncos’ assistant coach.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Cal Poly Pomona’s women’s soccer program,” Reinke said. “My playing career has reached its end and this is the next challenge. I look forward to doing all I can to help Isabelle build this program to be at its best with quality student-athletes.”

Reinke brings a wealth of playing experiences – both as an amateur and as a professional goalkeeper – into her first season.

She spent 2005 through 2007 playing as an amateur and professional in the Elite Division for women in Denmark. In that three-year span, she played for four teams including one full season with Fortuna Hjorring – one of the top women’s teams in the world. She completed her playing career this past summer with the Ottawa Fury, a member of the USL W-League, who reached the league finals against FC Indiana.

She and Harvey played against each other in college and were teammates on the semipro team Ajax in Southern California, which won national championships from 2001-2004.

Reinke’s coaching experience includes a one-year stint as a volunteer coach at Long Beach State. She also coached club soccer in Palos Verdes for three years.

Reinke was the first-ever in-state recruit for Arizona State University and went on to start four seasons for the Sun Devils. In her senior year, Reinke was a member of the 2000 Sun Devils’ NCAA postseason team, which lost in the second round to eventual semifinalist Portland. She remains the career leader in saves and shutouts for ASU.

Reinke, a Mesa, Ariz., native, was a member of ASU’s Maroon and Gold Scholars twice in her career. She earned her bachelor’s of science degree in Sociology from ASU in 2000.
