Tom Lowndes joined the Cascades men’s soccer program in 2013 to serve as an assistant coach under Alan Errington. With Errington retiring at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, Lowndes took the reins as interim head coach.
Lowndes, who hails from Undy, Wales, is a former academy player for Bristol Rovers FC in England, and played varsity soccer in North America at Baker University (an NAIA program in Kansas) and Simon Fraser University (NCAA Div. II). He was a two-time all-conference honouree at Baker University and helped the Wildcats to the 2011 NAIA Final Four.
At the conclusion of his university eligibility, Lowndes transitioned to the coaching ranks as an assistant with the Baker men’s and women’s teams, and helped guide the Wildcats women’s squad to the NAIA Sweet 16 in 2012.
