FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Carroll's longtime boys soccer coach Rollie Clements has passed away.
Clements began his career with the Carroll soccer program in 1989, five years before it became in IHSAA sanctioned sport.
He was in his 33rd season at Carroll when he passed.
Clements posted a career record of 428-141-56, winning 13 sectional titles, eight regionals, two semi-states and three Final Four appearances ('94, '03, '18).
“Rollie’s impact on Carroll is far reaching and well beyond just soccer,” Carroll athletic director Dan Ginder said in a statement released by the school. “Rollie was one of the first graduates of Carroll High School and he came back and served so many. His impact on Indiana High School Soccer is immense. I believe Heaven welcomed Rollie with, “Welcome my good and faithful servant” and we celebrate Rollie with, Thank you Coach our good and faithful Charger.”
Clements is a member of the Indiana Soccer Hall of Fame.
