Kubicek looks back, forward as he starts his retirement

Girls soccer > Coach led LA to state titles in 1998 and 2003

By Mike Cote

It was inevitable, so Jiri Kubicek decided not to delay his decision to retire any longer.
“Being in this business for 32 years, it was probably going to be only another year. It’s the right time,” he said.
And with that, the one of the longest-tenured coaches in the history of Los Alamos High School decided to retire.
Kubicek has put on his whistle for the last time as the head coach of the Los Alamos Hiltopper girls soccer team for the last time. He officially vacated his position Saturday, a position he’s held since 1991.
During that time, he helped cement the Hilltoppers’ place as one of the top programs in the state. He guided the program to a nearly .700 winning percentage over a 23-year career and two state championships.
One of the sweetest memories Kubicek said he had during his career was when his daughter, Jessica, knocked in the winning goal to upset the Albuquerque Academy Chargers for the 2003 state title.
Jessica Kubicek, an all-state performer for the Hilltoppers on defense, capped off what had been a remarkable run in the state playoffs, made all the more impressive by the fact Los Alamos struggled most of that season and was lightly regarded heading into the postseason.
