Zuliani to coach “first love” in sports

Modified: Thursday, Jul 11th, 2013

Veteran Buckhannon-Upshur High School girls track and field head coach JACKIE ZULIANI recently became the new head coach of the Lady Buc soccer team, replacing the same coach for whom she once played while a student-athlete at B-UHS, coach Tom Hasbrouck. Zuliani is pictured (first photo) during her playing days at West Virginia Wesleyan College, where she was a four-year starter for the Lady Bobcats at midfielder, and (second photo) with the Lady Buc track team at the 2011 state meet, where her team won their second of three Class AAA state championships during a four-year span.

TENNERTON — One three-time state champion will replace another as head coach of the Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buccaneer soccer team.

Jackie Zuliani, who has won three Class AAA state championships as head coach of the Lady Buc track and field team and two state runner-up banners, jumped into coaching the sport she calls her “first love” when she was named the next B-UHS girls soccer coach by the Upshur County Board of Education earlier this month.

And, while Zuliani has already built an impressive coaching résumé in track and field — where she has coached two Class AAA Girls High-Point Award winners, built a regional championship streak of five years and counting, captured 11 conference titles and won Coach of the Year honors from both the North Central Athletic Conference and Big Ten Conference, as well as the WVSSAC’s 2010 West Virginia Track and Field Coach of the Year award — she quickly points out that soccer was “the first team sport I played.”
