Boys Varsity Soccer
Tom Pollert has stepped down as the varsity boys’ soccer coach at Columbus North High School.
In two seasons with the Bull Dogs, Pollert guided the team to a 14-21-2 record and a 5-5-0 mark in Conference Indiana games. His 2018 team went 7-11-1 overall and 2-3-0 in league play. The 2019 squad finished 7-10-1 and 3-2-0.
Pollert is a 1983 graduate of Columbus North who previously was an assistant coach in the program from 1997 through 2004 for former CNHS coach David Green. Pollert also previously has coached at Franklin College, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Branstable (Mass.) High School and the College of Southern Maryland.
Pollert was the third head coach in the history of the Columbus North boys’ soccer program.
Green, the program founder, coached from 1982 through 2008 and compiled a 323-122-44 record over 27 seasons. Green-coached teams made one State Finals in the pre-IHSAA tournament and one IHSAA State Finals. They also won four sectionals, four regionals and one semi-state during the IHSAA seasons that started in 1994.
Andy Glover followed as coach, posting a 133-37-22 record from 2009-2017 that included the 2012 Class 2A state championship and a 2A state runner-up finish in 2011. Glover’s nine-year tenure also included four Conference Indiana, seven sectional, five regional and three semi-state crowns.
