Prior to Okla., Dickson led Sarasota  Crew  to   several  state and regional championships  as the varsity boy's coach, and a national championship in 2013.

Eliza's resume speaks for itself, but it was really her alignment with our core values that made it clear she was the right fit for Sammamish. I was coaching in Fla. against Eliza while she was at Sarasota Crew. I saw the program rising first hand. It was really amazing. Sarasota pioneered a new way of doing things, and I think Eliza will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to Sammamish."
