Kevin Spraul has been named the Oak Hills girls’ soccer coach, pending Board of Education approval.

Spraul, an Oak Hills graduate, arrives from Walnut Hills where he was the head coach the past two seasons.

Spraul had the Eagles as a No. 1 ranking in the city and No. 8 in the state. Prior to Walnut, Spraul coached on the boys and girls sides of Oak Hills soccer.

He is also the Director of Coaching for Cincinnati West Soccer Club where he is responsible for the training and development of over 80 teams and 1,000 players. His high school club team competed in the finals of the national championship last season.

Spraul played at Oak Hills and played in college at Urbana and Thomas More. He attended Dulles Elementary and Rapid Run Middle School prior to Oak Hills.

Spraul succeeds Chuck Laumann, who coached Oak Hills for 25 years. Laumann stepped down this spring in order to spend more time with his family. Laumann remains a teacher and the Oak Hills baseball coach.

“The opportunity to come back home to Oak Hills, follow in the footsteps of Chuck Laumann and build this program to even greater success is a dream come true,” Spraul said. “I am excited to be a part of the Oak Hills athletic family again and I can’t wait to get started with our players as we set our sights on a GMC championship and more.”
