We received the following press release from the Lowell High School Athletic Department.
Dan Lipon was recently named the new Boys Soccer Coach at Lowell High School taking over a varsity team that finished 14-7 in 2017 and 6-3 in the OK White conference.
“Coach Lipon is what we consider a “soccer junkie” – coaching two high school teams, serving as technical director for LASSO (youth soccer organization) and has been involved previously with GRFC. He has a vast knowledge of soccer, and we are excited about the coaching staff that will be in place coaching our boys,” said Athletic Director Dee Crowley.
Coach Lipon graduated from Livonia Stevenson High School, and he then attended Eastern Michigan University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Teacher Education (PE/Health). Coach Lipon has obtained his Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Western Michigan University.
Coach Lipon has served as the Lowell Girls Varsity Coach for the past seven years, and helped guide the team to Division 2 Top 10 ratings playing some of the toughest competition in the area and state. Prior to coaching at Lowell, Coach Lipon coached both boys and girls soccer at Forest Hills Northern and served as Division 2 chair for boys soccer for the Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association (MHSSCA).
“I’m excited and humbled for the opportunity to lead the boys soccer program. I am inheriting a great program and team, and our coaching staff is eager to begin working with the boys. The OK White is one the best soccer conferences in the state, and we embrace the opportunity each year to be the best at both the conference and state level” Coach Lipon commented.
Coach Lipon has been an elementary physical education teacher in the Lowell district for the past five years, and is currently teaching at Cherry Creek Elementary.
