Nathan Richter Hired As Hopewell High School Soccer Coach

More coaching news within the Hopewell School District.

At tonight’s board meeting it was confirmed that Nathan Richter will be the new high school boys soccer coach.

Richter will be replacing longtime head coach Nick Mohrbacher, who retired in November. The Vikings team just completed a successful season in which they beat defending champion, Deer Lakes, in the first round of the WPIAL Playoffs, before losing in the next round to Shady Side Academy, 3-1. That win over Deer Lakes was the first playoff win for the Hopewell boys’ team in 12 seasons.

The hiring of Richter is an exciting one for Hopewell as he has a long and impressive resume.

Richter is a graduate of North Allegheny High School and attended St. Francis, PA. and Robert Morris University.

Aside from his coaching resume, Richter was an accomplished player as well.

Hopewell is adding someone that has a track record of being a proven leader, coach and more importantly a teacher of athletes.

The Hopewell School District has a lot of young talent in the youth organizations, along with the junior high and high school programs, so adding someone with Richter is definitely exciting for the future of Hopewell boys soccer.
