2006 COLLEGIATE SOCCER FIELD OF THE YEAR

A stadium rich in history, Jeffrey Field has been the host site for several special women’s soccer contests. Penn State has played NCAA Tournament games on its home field in 12 different seasons. Additionally, Jeffrey Field was the site for the 1998 and 2006 Big Ten Conference Tournaments, both of which the Nittany Lions won. The final contest of the 1998 tournament aired on Fox Sports World (Fox Soccer Channel), marking the first-ever television broadcast of women’s soccer from Jeffrey Field. The 2006 Big Ten final was broadcast by CSTV (CBS College Sports). “We have been very Entering the 2011 season, Jeffrey Field will sport the finest surface in fortunate to have collegiate soccer once again. During the summer, the perennial Kentucky our soccer probluegrass was replaced with ryegrass, the same turf upon which the English grams competing Premier League competes. Coupled with the soccer-only practice fields, which on he finest surfaces in both training were opened in the fall of 2008 and features separate pitches for the men’s and and in matches. women’s teams, natural grass surfaces, grids for specialty training, and a state- This is yet another of-the-art irrigation and drainage system, Penn State has placed itself at the step toward making Penn State the forefront of collegiate soccer facilities. The Nittany Lions have enjoyed great success at Jeffrey Field, compiling a best place in the country to play col163-20-6 record (.878) in 17 seasons, with six undefeated home slates (1996, lege soccer.” ‘98, 2001, ‘02, ‘03 and ‘05) including undefeated home seasons four times in Head Coach the past decade. Erica Walsh Over 120,000 spectators have attended women’s soccer games at Jeffrey Field since 1994. Over the past seven seasons, attendance at Nittany Lion women’s games has more than doubled. During the 2006 campaign, Penn State re-wrote its all-time best crowd as a frenzied crowd of 3,208 cheered on the Lions in their upsetvictory over No. 2 UCLA on Aug. 25. On Aug. 27, 2010, Penn State played Virginia to a 1-1 draw in front of nearly 4,000 fans, another new record. The Nittany Lion women’s soccer team has hosted some of the top teams in the nation. On Sept. 17, 1999, Penn State played host to defending national champion Florida. Powerhouses such as UCLA, Santa Clara, Portland, Tennessee, Florida and Maryland as well as No. 1 Notre Dame in 2008, have all visited Jeffrey Field. This year, the Lions will host regional rival West Virginia and Richmond in non-conference action. An always strong Big Ten slate of six teams will visit Jeffrey including 2010 Women’s College Cup participant and Big Ten co-champion Ohio State on Sept. 29. Also playing at Jeffrey will be Northwestern, Illinois, Nebraska (first time ever), Iowa and Purdue. FACILITY HISTORY AND FUTURE Dedicated on Sept. 29, 1972, Penn State’s soccer stadium is named in honor of the late Bill Jeffrey, the Penn State men’s soccer coach from 1926-52. Regarded as the finest grass surface in the country and named such officially in 2006, Jeffrey Field was refurbished first in 1978. New bleachers with a capacity of 3,500 were added along with fencing and an adjacent practice field. New lights were added prior to the 1996 season. During the summer of 2004, Jeffrey Field again underwent a facelift. In addition to a new field surface, new bleachers, a press box and a video booth were also added. In the summer of 2008, new practice fields (pictured on page 5) were added where the baseball field once stood. Additional improvements are in the long-term plans for the stadium, which include a team building with locker and training rooms and other great ameneties to Jeffrey Field.

SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS

SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS For the past four years, the Penn State soccer family has been involved in Soccer Without Borders (SWB), a non-profit oginization to assist impovershed areas with girls soccer. SWB’s mission is to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of marginalized youth all over the world. Working with other community-based organizations in under-served areas, the Soccer Without Borders program combines soccer instruction with life skills education and uses soccer as a tool for youth development.

In the winter of 2008, Penn State players collected gear to donate to the inaugural SWB project for girls in Latin America; and in March of that year, assistant coach Ann Cook took the gear to Granada, Nicaragua and helped run the first soccer camp for girls in that area. In addition to this TEAM camp (Trabajando en Equipo Aprendemos Mas – working in teams we learn more), Cook also helped establish the first coaches’ clinic in Granada that March. Fifteen coaches from Granada participated in the clinic and many of them have gone on to help with girls’ soccer in the area. Since then, Cook and Penn State players have become more involved in the project and have not only donated gear but have donated significant amounts of their time. In March of 2009, four former Penn State players went with Cook to participate in the second annual TEAM camp and coaches’ clinic in Granada. Kaleen Adami, Zoe Bouchelle, Allie Daus and Sarah Dwyer spent their Spring Break in Nicaragua living with local families, soaking in the culture, and giving back to the sport that has given them so much. The camp and clinics continue to go incredibly well and the project now has a permanent, sustainable presence in Granada. The volunteers in March 2009 were there to see the opening of the first Soccer Without Borders community center just for girls. The project now has nine Nicaraguan employees, a life skills curriculum in place and a small-sided eight-team league for girls. Adami and Bouchelle served long-term internships with the Granada project and were in Nicaragua from September 2009 to May 2010 continuing to build these programs and relationships with the community. They documented their experiences and helped form the first internship program of Soccer Without Borders and the Penn State soccer community could not be prouder. “It’s been incredible to witness the growth of the project and the Nicaraguan girls and coaches involved over the last year or so,” Cook said. “We have made much progress but there is so much more ground to gain! It has also been unbelievably rewarding to watch my players get involved and mature as a direct result of the perspective they gain from these experiences.” In 2011, current student-athletes Maddy Evans, Jess Rosenbluth and Ali Schaefer went on the SWB Spring Infusion during the month of May. Much like their predacessors, they ventured to Granada for a 10-day camp. Coach Cook and Bouchelle were also in Nicaragua this past year. You can read more about this and the Granada, Nicaragua project and Soccer Without Borders in general at... www.soccerwithoutborders.org.

16 STRAIGHT NCAA APPEARANCES 1995-2010

NITTANY LIONS ON NATIONAL TEAMS In the short time that the Nittany Lion women’s soccer program has been in existence it has proved to be a force within the NCAA soccer scene, but many of its products have also been key contributors on the international scene with both the U.S. and Canadian National Teams. Twenty-two Nittany Lions have donned their National colors in hopes of bringing their country International success. This past summer was the most exciting year for Nittany Lions on national teams as three Penn Staters were featured in the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany. Ali Krieger (featured to the right) started and played every minute at right back for the United States, while Erin McLeod started two games in net for Canada and Carmelina Moscato made the squad as well. Head Coach Erica Walsh served as an assistant to Pia Sundhage on the U.S. staff. She was also an assistant on the U.S. team that won gold for the U.S. at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. McLeod was the starting goalkeeper for the Canadian National Team at those Games. Current Nittany Lions Christine Nairn, Maya Hayes and Bri Hovington have all worn the Stars and Stripes this past year with graduates Alyssa Naeher, Katie Schoepfer and Danielle Toney making various stops on the National Teams through out the years. Incoming freshman Kori Chapic has also featured on the U-20 team in the defense. Lexi Marton and incoming goalkeeper Erin McNulty has been a member of various Canadian National Teams. Nairn co-captained the 2010 U.S. U-20 National Team with UCLA standout Sydney Leroux during the CONCACAF Championship run in Guatemala. As the starting central midfielder, Narin tallied a pair of goals and a bevy of assists in helping the U.S. reclaim the region title. The United States reached the knockout stage in the 2010 competition led by Nairn. Also on that team as a reserve was Hayes, who tallied a goal and assist in the tournament Nairn made waves in July 2009 when she scored the gamewinning tally against Canada in a 1-0 victory as a reserve. The goal, which came in the final minutes, was her last appearance with the full national squad before her college play began. Former standouts Joanna Lohman, Christie Welsh and Tiffany Weimer were all brought into U.S. National team training camps for a shot at the Olympics in 2008 along with Krieger.

2011 WOMEN’S WORLD CUP GERMANY The 2011 Women’s World Cup will go down as the most exciting, competitive and exhilirating tournament in its brief history. In the Penn State soccer world, it became the most relevant World Cup with the inclusion of 2007 graduate Ali Krieger and current head coach Erica Walsh participating in the team’s successes. Krieger landed a spot on the World Cup team and in the starting lineup after a three-year run for club team FFC Frankfurt in the Frauenbundesliga, which included a Women’s Champions League title. The Dumfries, Va. native’s exploits generated world-wide headlines when she converted the fifth and deciding penalty kick in a 5-3 shootout win over Brazil in the quarterfinals after a thrilling comeback. The comeback featured an ESPY-winning goal by Abby Wambach off a Megan Rapinoe cross. The play started 100 yards downfield by Krieger as she intercepted an errant Brazil pass in the 122nd minute and sent the play to Carli Lloyd and Rapinoe. By tournament’s end, the United States earned a runner-up finish after another exciting game, a penalty-kick loss to Japan in the final. Krieger started and played every moment in all six matches totalling 600 minutes of gametime in her debut World Cup. Names like Wambach, Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and Krieger have become household names in the American sports world, raising awareness to unprecedented levels.

NITTANY LIONS IN THE PROS WOMEN’S PROFESSIONAL SOCCER (WPS)

WOMEN’S UNITED SOCCER ASSOCIATION (WUSA)

Three Nittany Lions Play in World’s Top League After the sudden demise of the Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA), there were serious doubts about its revival in 2003. Nevertheless, business owners and soccer fans alike willed the league to begin anew, and so launched Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) in the spring of 2009. In the inaugural year, no less than seven Lions participated in the WPS in some form or another. Original draftees included Christie Welsh and Sheree Gray to the Saint Louis Athletica, while Tiffany Weimer was sent out west to play with FC Gold Pride in San Jose, Calif. Welsh was drafted by the Los Angeles Sol and had her rights traded to Saint Louis. A trio of PSU stars were key members of the Washington Freedom. Erin McLeod, the WPS Player of the Week in June ‘09, was the starting goalkeeper for the club while Ali Krieger returned stateside to join the club on loan from FFC Frankfurt in early June, starting in defense. Joanna Lohman was a member of the Freedom, but now plays for the Philadelphia Independence. Bonnie Young was drafted to the Chicago Red Stars. In 2010, Alyssa Naeher was drafted 13th overall to Boston, joining Weimer who signed with the Breakers in the offseason. Katie Schoepfer was selected by Sky Blue FC, the defending 2009 champions. For the 2011 season, Lohman returned to the Independence after leading the squad to a WPS Finals appearance a year ago. Currently, Philadelphia leads WPS and is looking for its first title. Naeher has played nearly every minute in net for the Breakers, while Schoepfer moved to join Naeher in the offseason. Schoefper was instrumental to the Boston offense during the World Cup, scoring twice and assisting on two other goals. Boston is looking for its second straight playoff appearance after a semifinal showing in 2010. In all, six teams comprise the WPS landscape including some holdover teams from the WUSA (Boston and Atlanta Beat). Sky Blue FC is a founding club with Boston and MagicJack SC (formerly Washington Freedom). The Freedom and Boston Breakers are two of those clubs, while the Atlanta Beat will joined the league in 2010. The Western New York Flash have been successful as an expansion team in 2011 and are in the title hunt. Next year, WPS hopes to expand and reignite markets from previous years including the Southern California and Chicago areas. Two teams, Atlanta and Western New York, play in soccer-specific stadiums. The Beat play in the first women’s specific stadium in Kennesaw, Ga., which will host the 2011 NCAA Women’s College Cup. Western New York plays its games in Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester, N.Y.

Nittany Lions Starred in the First Major U.S. Women’s Pro League In February of 2000, major U.S. media companies and individual investors joined forces with 20 of the nation’s leading female soccer stars to form the Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA), the premier women’s international professional soccer league. In April 2001, the WUSA kicked off its inaugural season with eight teams: Atlanta Beat, Bay Area CyberRays, Boston Breakers, New York Power, Carolina Courage, Philadelphia Charge, San Diego Spirit, and Washington Freedom. Three Penn Staters also participated in the League’s first season as well as former Nittany Lion head coach Patrick Farmer, who left his post with the school to become the head coach of the New York Power. Former assistant coach Zac Shaw was an assistant coach for the Carolina Courage when the league started before he joined Farmer in New York prior to the start of the 2002 campaign. Current assistant coach Ann Cook was the 25th overall pick in the inaugural draft, she was part of the Bay Area CyberRays’ championship run that year. Four-time regional All-American Rachel Hoffman was drafted in the supplemental draft by New York. Selected in the third round (12th pick), she served as a reserve player for the Power. In 2002, All-American goalkeeper Emily Oleksiuk and All-American Bonnie Young were drafted in 2002. Young was selected in the second round (14th overall pick) by her one-time head coach, Farmer. Ending her collegiate career as the NCAA’s leader in goalkeeper minutes played, Oleksiuk was the first pick in the third round and the 17th pick overall. In February 2003, Christie Welsh became the fifth Lion in school history to be drafted in the WUSA when the New York Power selected the Long Island native with the second overall pick. The WUSA suspended operations in 2003 due to financial issues, but league “Festivals” were held during the summer of 2004 and the league relaunched as Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) in 2009 with a new marketing strategy.

1997

On August 5, 1993, then-athletic director Jim Tarman officially announced that women’s soccer would become Penn State’s 14th women’s varsity sport and 29th varsity athletic team overall. Not since 1977, when Penn State granted women’s volleyball varsity status, had another sport been added to the Nittany Lions’ elite athletic program. In its short 17-year varsity history, the Nittany Lion women’s soccer program has grown by leaps and bounds. Here’s a look at its history, so far...

PENN STATE PLAYS IN LONDON’S HISTORIC WEMBLEY STADIUM

Penn State women’s soccer etched its name into the Wembley Stadium record book during its 1997 Summer European Tour. On August 3, 1997, before a near-sellout crowd, Penn State played an exhibition match with the London Select Team prior to the annual FACommunity Shield Match, which pitted the men’s regular-season league champion (Manchester United) against the league cup winner (Chelsea FC). The Nittany Lions became the first American women’s team to play in England’s Wembley Stadium. Carole Dutchka also became only the second American and first-ever American woman to score a goal in Wembley when she tied the score 1-1 late in the first half. Trailing 2-1 midway through the second half, Shari Pickett knocked in a goal to tie the score. But with 8:00 left to play, England scored the final goal to post the 3-2 win in front of 40,000 fans. “Our entire team was excited about (the tour) and about the chance to play in one of the great historical stadiums worldwide,” said then-Penn State head coach Patrick Farmer. “We saw some different styles of play, and we experienced soccer as more than just a sport. In Europe, the game is a phenomena, it’s a part of the culture. The trip was a great opportunity for our players.” At halftime of the FA Community Shield Match, the Nittany Lions challenged the London Select Team in a penalty kick shootout. Proceeds from the event went to the Charity Shield, England’s equivalent of the U.S. United Way. But Wembley wasn’t Penn State’s only stop. On August 5, the Nittany Lions captured a 4-2 win from Millwall Football Club, the top-ranked club team in the Premier Division, on live national television. Dutchka notched a goal to send the game into halftime knotted 1-1. After falling behind early in the second stanza, PSU reeled off three unanswered goals from Rachel Hoffman, Kelly Convey and Dutchka for the win. PSU also traveled to Belgium for a match with the Dutch Select Team and to Germany for the S.V. Hemmerdon Frauenfussball Tournament.

Forward Christie Welsh was named Soccer Buzz magazine’s National Freshman of the Year. • October 22: With her last save in the 1-0 win over No. 19 Harvard, junior All-American keeper Emily Oleksiuk became PSU’s career leader in saves. By the end of the season, she ranked first in every PSU career goalkeeper category. • October 27: With its 1-0 shutout at Michigan State, Penn State recorded its first perfect slate of 10-0-0 in Big Ten play en route to its third consecutive Big Ten championship. The Nittany Lions became the first team in league history to win three crowns. • November 2: Sophomore Christie Welsh earned Big Ten Player of the Year accolades for the second time, becoming just the second player in conference history to achieve the feat. For the third consecutive season, a Nittany Lion walked away with Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors– Joanna Lohman. • November 17: With a 4-0 blanking of Dartmouth, Penn

PENN STATE LEGEND CHRISTIE WELSH: 2001 NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

2001

Christie Welsh, the most decorated player in Penn State women’s soccer history, swept collegiate soccer’s national player of the year awards as a junior in 2001, winning the Hermann Trophy and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Missouri Athletic Club Player of the Year. On December 4, 2001, Welsh became the first-ever Big Ten Conference and Nittany Lion women’s soccer player to win the prestigious Hermann Trophy. The 14th female soccer player to be honored with the award, Robert R. Hermann himself presented the Trophy to Welsh in a ceremony at the Bryce Jordan Center. Welsh is the second Penn Stater to ever garner the award. Jim Stamatis won the award in 1979 playing under Hall of Fame coach Walter Bahr. Two days later, the Missouri Athletic Club announced that Welsh was voted 2001 NSCAA Collegiate Player of the Year on December 6. The only Nittany Lion to ever win the award, she became the first soccer player in the Big Ten Conference to garner the honor. The Hermann Trophy is the oldest and most prestigious award in collegiate soccer. The equivalent to college football’s Heisman Trophy, the Hermann Trophy was first awarded to male soccer players in 1967 and is presented every year to the most outstanding collegiate soccer player in the nation. The winners are determined through a nationwide balloting of soccer coaches and sportswriters. In 1988 the Trophy was expanded to include both a male and female recipient. The official NCAA Division I player of the year award of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, the Missouri Athletic Club Collegiate Player of the Year was decided in 2001 by a voting of all Di-

vision I soccer coaches. Presented to the top male and female soccer player in the nation, the recipients receive the traditional crystal ball trophy at the NSCAA AllAmerica dinner in St. Louis, Mo. The M.A.C. Player of the Year was first presented in 1986 to the top male collegiate player. In 1991, the award was expanded to include a female winner. Past female winners of the Hermann Trophy and NSCAA/M.A.C. Player of the Year award include United States Women’s World Cup Champions Michelle Akers, Kristine Lilly, Tisha Venturini, Shannon MacMillan and two-time winners Mia Hamm and Cindy Parlow. Welsh won the M.A.C. Player of the Year award by a large margin, picking up 152 points. Florida’s Abby Wambach finished second in the voting with 119, followed by North Carolina’s Jena Kleugel (106), Santa Clara’s Aly Wagner (103) and UNC’s Danielle Borgman (90). In 2001, Welsh was the only player in the nation to rank among the top 10 in points per game (third, 2.62), goals per game (fourth, 0.96) and assists per game (eighth, 0.69). That season, she not only helped the Lions to their fourth-straight Big Ten regular season crown and third conference tournament title in four years, she broke the Big Ten career records for points, goals, assists and game-winning goals. She also broke her own single-season Big Ten records for points (68) and tied the assists mark (18) en route to her third-straight conference Player of the Year honor. Welsh is the last player to receive both awards. Prior to the 2002 season, the Hermann Trophy and NSCAA/M.A.C. Player of the Year award were combined to form the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy and is voted on by members of the NSCAA.

HISTORY IN THE POLLS NSCAA POLL HISTORY

THE 2011 PRESEASON POLL

The Penn State Nittany Lions made their first appearance in the National Soccer Coaches’ Association (NSCAA) poll on October 10, 1995, ranking 22nd in the nation. Since that year, the Lions found themselves ranked in the nation’s final Top 25 for 13 straight seasons (1995-2007), earning 10 Top 10 ratings including nine seasons in a row from 1998-2006. In 2005, the Lions received their highest final ranking ever, finishing second nationally after tying eventual NCAA champion Portland, 0-0, in the College Cup semifinals. Prior to that, Penn State’s No. 4 final ranking in 1999 and 2002, the first two seasons the Nittany Lions advanced to the NCAA College Cup, had been the program’s best. In 2005, Penn State also received its first-ever No. 1 ranking when it took over the top spot on October 11 and held it for three weeks before tying host Michigan at the Big Ten Tournament and falling to No. 3 entering the NCAA Tournament. In 2007, Penn State finished ranked No. 12 in the final NSCAA poll. Last season was the first year since 1994 the Lions didn’t find their names in the final poll. Last year, Penn State’s exciting run through the Big Ten captured notice of voters across the nation after poor early showings. The Nittany Lions wound up as one of the first teams out of the poll in 2010.
