CLEVELAND, Ohio — Holy Name girls soccer coach Emily Balodis still remembers what it’s like to play for the Green Wave.

The first-year coach graduated from Holy Name in 2010 after a strong high school career, which included a state championship in 2006. After four years at Notre Dame College, Balodis returned to her alma mater to lead a new crop of Holy Name girls soccer players eager for similar success.

“I know what I wanted from a coach being a female athlete,” Balodis said following a 4-1 loss to Walsh Jesuit at Notre Dame College on Sept. 10. “So I feel like that helps me understand what they want from a coach. It makes things a bit easier.”

PARMA HEIGHTS, Ohio — Remember Holy Name High School’s sweet win over Badin High School in girls’ soccer in 2006? Or the school’s band marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1994?

This Catholic school was originally established in Cleveland in 1914 and moved to its current location, 6000 Queens Highway in Parma Heights after a merger with Nazareth Academy in the late 1970s.

Holy Name’s team acquired the nickname of “the Green Wave” after a newspaper account described how the players moved on the football field. The school community has historically been a strong supporter of sports.
