Roland Minder is in the Camas High School Athletic Hall of Fame.

Come next spring, the longtime soccer coach will be back on the pitch.

Three seasons after retiring from coaching, Minder will resume duties as head coach of the Camas boys soccer program, athletic director Rory Oster announced Tuesday.

“I cannot stress how excited I am for our boys soccer program right now,” Oster said. “I have such tremendous respect for Coach Minder and was thrilled when he showed interest of returning.”

Minder, 67, coached the Camas boys soccer program from 1995 to 2017, leading the Papermakers to 18 league titles and three state championships. He coached the Camas girls teams from 2004 to 2018, leading the Papermakers to 12 league titles and two state titles.

Between the two programs, Minder accumulated a record of 589-106-46.

He retired from coaching after the 2018 fall girls season. He returned to serve as an assistant coach at Camas under Kerri Tomasetti this fall.

Minder replaces Dan Macaya, who served as head coach since 2018. Richard Gooch and Josh Stoller served as interim co-coaches last spring when Macaya took a paternity leave.

“We have a great group of student-athletes who are talented and ready to compete at the highest level right now,” Oster said. “Coach Minder will step right in and allow them that opportunity.”
