LYNNWOOD -- Interim head men's soccer coach Kris Lowry has been elevated to the leader of the men's and women's soccer programs at Edmonds College. Lowry, who was in his second stint at the college as an assistant this past spring, assumes the role of Director of Soccer effective immediately.

He captained the 1993 team the following year before transferring to Arizona State University.
"Kris is a positive person; I know he will do everything in his power to help our student-athletes develop in soccer and in life," said athletic director Spencer Stark.
"I am a Triton. From having worn the uniform and coached on previous staffs, I know the pride and prestige that goes with being part of this institution," said Lowry. His vision is to integrate the men's and women's teams together to build a larger family and prepare them for the next level. "Championship cultures create championship people and teams. It is an honor and blessing to represent Triton Athletics and the alumni. This is a dream come true for me," Lowry added.
Darrel Marcelle, who has an extensive soccer coaching background, joins Lowry as the Associate Head Coach for both programs. Marcelle was a member of the Trinidad and Tobago national team after playing and graduating from NCAA DI Howard University. He holds his USSF "A" License, is certified by the Italian Football Federation, and is currently the technical director for BVB International Academy which includes overseeing all club operations. He has coached at Empoli FC in the Italian Serie A League, been an assistant at Mount St. Mary's University (NCAA DII), and was the National Team coach for Trinidad and Tobago's women's team, serving on the staff for the U17 & U20 senior women's squads (2019-2021).
