Campbell University - Women's Soccer Camp

COACHING STAFF

JAMIE CORTI  |  ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH

The 2017 season will be Jamie Corti’s second year with the Campbell women’s soccer staff. She was promoted to the role of associate head coach in February of 2017 after serving as an assistant coach for the team beginning in the spring of 2016.

During her second season at Campbell in 2017, Corti helped to lead a CU team that scored 40 goals, which ranked 24th in the nation in scoring offense at the conclusion of the regular season. Corti was the primary coach of the Camels defensive unit, which posted the largest goal differential since 2004. The Camels conceded just 18 goals on the season, the fewest since the 1995 season. Defensive players Anna Brantley and Shelby Denkert earned all-conference accolades under the direction of Corti.

In 2016, Corti helped lead a Campbell squad that ranked first in the Big South in goals (40), assists (43) and points (123). She played a large role in coaching the Camels' defensive unit, which posted six shutouts on the year including three in a row to end the season and clinch a top four seed for CU in the conference tournament.

Prior to her coming to Campbell, Corti served as an assistant coach at the University of Central Florida since June of 2013. The Knights made the NCAA tournament each year during her tenure in Orlando, including a Sweet 16 appearance in the 2014 season.

As a member of the UCF staff, Corti helped the Knights appear in their ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament.  In the 2014 season, she helped the Knights to their first undefeated conference record since the 1999 season. The team also won the American Athletic Conference, the first team in UCF history to do so. The team had three player of the year honors from the conference and won a school record 18 games. Also during 2014, she earned her NSCAA GK level 1 and NSCAA Diploma.

Prior to joining the UCF staff, Corti spent two seasons at Virginia Commonwealth University as a graduate assistant where she helped the team record 13 shutouts and boast the third best goals allowed and goals-against-average in the CAA in 2010. She returned to VCU in 2012 as an assistant coach after a year as an assistant coach at her alma mater, UNC Greensboro. During the 2012 season, she helped the Rams to a 12-5-5 record and an Atlantic 10 Championship game appearance.

Corti played collegiately at UNC Greensboro from 2004-08. During her time as a Spartan, the team captured four Southern Conference championships, including a perfect conference record for three of them. The team also made the NCAA tournament twice during that span. As a starter at center defender, the Spartans boasted a 44-4-4 record in conference play. In 2007 and 2008, she was a team captain and named team MVP. Corti was also a first-team all-SoCon selection during those two seasons.

Following the 2007 season, NSCAA and Soccer Buzz named her to the third-team all-region for her outstanding performance on a backline that allowed 0.86 goals per game. During her final three years, she started 65 of 66 games, allowing just 0.92 goals-against and recording 33 shutouts.

Corti was born in Florence, Italy, and her family relocated to Apex, N.C., prior to her high school career, where she was an all-state defender at Apex High School.

 

OLIVIA MILLS  |  ASSISTANT COACH

Olivia Mills joined the Campbell women’s soccer program in August of 2017 as an Assistant Coach for the Camels. Mills will be involved in all areas of recruiting, field instruction and administrative tasks, as well as working specifically with the goalkeepers and CU’s sport science initiatives.

During her first year at Campbell in 2017, Mills helped train the Camels' goalkeeping unit, which only conceded 18 goals, the fewest since 1995. CU goalkeepers Erin Scott and Natalya Marcove posted a combined goals-against-average of 0.93, which finished the season ranked second in the Big South. Scott developed into one of the conference's best keepers under the direction of Mills. She allowed just 17 goals in 1495 minutes between the sticks for a GAA of 1.02, the fourth best in program history. Scott notched six solo shutouts on the season, which also ranks fourth in Campbell women's soccer history. Additionally, Mills played a key role in the Camels' strength and conditioning, leading warmups at practices and at away matches.

She came to the Creek from Troy, where she served as an assistant coach during the 2016 season. Under her guidance, the Troy goalkeepers only allowed 22 goals on the season, posting a stellar 1.05 GAA. Mikki Lewis had a stellar 2016 season, posting seven shutouts, a 1.08 GAA, which is the fourth-best in program history, and notching 65 saves. In addition, Mills developed and facilitated the 13-week offseason strength program, mobility and muscular regeneration recovery sessions and weekly on-field lifting sessions.

Mills kicked off her coaching career in 2015 at Stetson, where she served as an assistant coach. She worked with the Hatters’ goalkeepers, as well as working closely with the staff to design and facilitate all aspects of team training. Under her tutelage, the goalkeepers posted a 1.99 GAA  and notched 92 saves. Mills also helped to develop physiological initiatives for the program, including heart rate monitor application and data analysis, nutrition oversight and facilitation of strength and conditioning and recovery sessions.

Prior to arriving in DeLand, Fla., Mills spent the summer of 2015 as a strength and conditioning intern at Colorado State, where she developed and executed the summer strength and conditioning program for the Rams football program.

She graduated from Valdosta State in 2015 with a degree in Exercise Physiology. Mills spent all four seasons in goal with the Blazers, and helped to lead VSU to the 2014 Gulf South Conference championship and a No. 23 overall ranking, as well as three consecutive NCAA Division II Tournament appearances from 2012-14. She earned all-conference honors on three occasions and was named to the Gulf South’s all-academic team in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

Mills has applied her exercise science degree to good use since graduating from VSU, earning five different certifications. She has earned the USA Weightlifting Certification, American Heart Association CPR and AED certifications, the Goalkeeping License, and is an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist.
