Bridgewater Looking To Take Next Step In Program’s Building Process The Bridgewater College women’s soccer team enters the 2011 season, looking to take another step toward winning an ODAC championship. Coming off back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in program history, the Eagles are confident they are moving closer to contending with and defeating the top teams in the conference. Two years ago, the Eagles set a program record with 13 victories. A year ago, the team earned the No. 4 seed in the ODAC tournament and hosted a first-round game in the ODAC tournament for the first time. There is plenty of reason for optimism this season as the Eagles return five players who were honored with All-ODAC recognition in 2010. “We return a solid group of players who have experienced some success in the past two seasons,” Bridgewater head coach Mike Van Horn said. “We played well last year against an extremely tough schedule. This season we will try to take another step forward with our program.” Leading the returning players is senior Meghan Groos, a second-team All-ODAC pick in 2010. “She will be better this season with a year of experience under her belt at center-mid,” said Van Horn. Joining Groos in the starting lineup will be second-team All-ODAC performers Jessica Palmer, Brittney Harris and Melanie Waters. Abby Dehoff, an honorable mention All-ODAC pick also returns. Palmer returns as a back but will assume a new role for the Eagles during her senior year. “We’re going to try to play Jess outside so she we will be able to move forward and join the attack instead of just anchoring the defense,” Van Horn explained. Harris, a junior, and Waters, a sophomore, give the Eagles firepower at the forward position. “We’re looking for Brittney to find the back of the net early and often. She will also have an added role this season as she will play some in the midfield as well,” said Van Horn. “We need Melanie to continue to grow as a player. We are going to need her to match her production from a year ago and take another step forward in her development.” Dehoff, another talented offensive player, returns to the midfield. “We need Abby to get people involved and make us a more dynamic team. She will also be a threat on our set pieces again this season,” Van Horn said. That’s not the end of Bridgewater’s returning talent as the Eagles return at least 10 more players with significant playing time to their credit a year ago. In goal, the Eagles will have four keepers vying for minutes. “The past three years we have had competition at that spot and this year will be no different,’ said Van Horn. “We have three players returning and we have a freshman that can compete. We have talent at that position.” In addition to the large group of returning players, Van Horn is bringing in another strong group of first-year players.

Meghan Groos returns for her senior season to lead the 2011 Eagles.

Mike Van Horn enters his fourth sason as the head coach of the Eagles women’s soccer program.

“We have some people coming in who will contribute right away at key positions,” said Bridgewater’s head coach. “There are going to be some freshmen in the starting lineup and a lot of the freshmen are going to see playing time. This group is going to make us better and much deeper. When we go to the bench, you are not going to see a drop in the level of play.”


Mike Van Horn, Head Coach Mike Van Horn begins his fourth season as head coach of the women’s soccer program at Bridgewater College. A year ago, the Eagles continued to move forward as a program by securing the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament and hosting an ODAC first-round game for the first time in program history. The Eagles finished with a winning record in 2010, marking the first time the program has posted back-toback winning campaigns. The 2009 squad, Van Horn’s second team at BC finished fifth in the nation for most improved program after posting a program high 13 victories. The team set new program records for most shutouts, assists, goals and wins in a season. They also set a new record for the fewest goals allowed during a season. During each of Van Horn’s seasons, the Eagles have significantly reduced the number of goals allowed. Van Horn brings a wealth of coaching experience from the high school, club and collegiate levels to the Eagles’ program. Van Horn served as the assistant soccer coach/goalkeeper coach for the Bridgewater men’s team. He was responsible for organizing and directing all goalkeeper sessions for the men’s team. He was also

Jason Capps Assistant Coach Jason Capps enters his fourth season on the Bridgewater College women’s soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach.

While his 2011 campaign ended in double-overtime in the VISAA Division II State Quarterfinal, Capps finished the season with a record of 13-3 and led his team to an undefeated season (11-0) in the Blue Ridge Conference. He guided the Flames to a third straight Blue Ridge Conference Championship while only allowing two goals in conference play, giving up zero goals in the conference tournament. His tenure has sparked many milestones including maintaining a top three VISAA Division II state ranking each season, posting a 31-2 record in conference play, outscoring opponents 154-31, and winning three consecutive BRC Championships. Capps also led his team to a victory over a higher division rival for the first time in the school’s history and has produced the most VISAA All-State girls’ soccer players in EMHS history. In the summer of 2010, Capps ventured to South Africa where he participated in “Ignite the Flame,” a mission based tour that consisted of leading soccer clinics for children during World Cup 2010.

Van Horn graduated from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science. He earned his Masters of Science in athletic administration from James Madison University. “My goal,” said Van Horn, “is to develop a soccer culture focused on compassion and respect for each aspect of the game and each studentathlete, while progressively raising the standard of the program and maintaining high academic standards. Van Horn lives in Harrisonburg with his wife Molly and sons Ayden and Eyan.

2010 Year In Review - A Fearless Journey Fear no one. The Bridgewater College women’s soccer team, which broke nearly every school record in 2009, came into the 2010 season with that very mentality. And they would need it. Facing the toughest schedule in the history of the program playing five pre-season nationally ranked teams, two of which ended their previous season in the NCAA Division III National Semi-final, and playing in what most consider the strongest conference in America - the Eagles would be tested. But this roster full of history makers wasn’t about to let their previous campaign stand alone as the pinnacle of their success. Like in 2009, the pre-season would see a continuing shift in culture for the Eagles. Coming off a disappointing end to the previous historical season, the team came into camp ready to take on all comers, and determined to further their place in the record books. The rugged two weeks of pre-season camp culminated in a victory in the first regular season match over eventual CAC champion, Stevenson, BRITTNEY HARRIS 2-0, perhaps echoing the prowess of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference as a whole. Though the Eagles knocked down a championship caliber club early, this would only be a hint of the competition to come. The Eagles would face the likes of national powerhouse The College of New Jersey, among others, and although they would fight valiantly in 2-1 losses to both Emory and Mary Washington, they would fall into an early hole of 1-4-1 through the first 6 matches. However, the young team of Eagles would learn a valuable lesson during the tense early moments of the season, and ultimately come together as they progressed toward the always difficult ODAC portion of the schedule. “I knew there would be trying times taking on such a tough schedule, but the timing was right for the program to take things to the next level,” said Head Coach Mike Van Horn. “In order for us to accomplish the goals we have set for ourselves, we had to cut our teeth outside the conference to properly prepare to make a run once the conference games came around.” And though there were trying times, the Eagles certainly took advantage of the lessons learned as they would find the game would begin to slow down. The Eagles would enter conference play with a win over

MEGHAN GROOS Emory and Henry, and then the theory that went into scheduling the 2010 season would be tested by conference foe and NCAA national semifinalist, Lynchburg College. The Eagles would show the great progress of the program by threatening the Hornets early, with two shots ringing off the crossbar. Then, playing with the ODAC elite the remainder of the match, the Eagles would fall only 2-0, thus closing the gap after scores of 7-0 and 3-0 in previous seasons. After a setback against rival Roanoke, the Eagles would then hit their stride and go on a tear. The Eagles would go on a 6-game winning streak, breaking the only remaining record left standing from the historical 2009 campaign. During that impressive run, the Eagles would defeat the likes of cross-town rival EMU, 3-1, for the second straight season. The streak led into a showdown with ODAC power, Virginia Wesleyan. The Eagles would drop the hard fought match, 2-0, but not without promising glimpses of their full potential. The next few practices would take sharp focus on the last game of the regular season at defending conference champion Washington and Lee University, a team Continued On Next Page


Jessica Palmer Continued from previous page that has only lost to Bridgewater once in the program’s history and never dropped a match against the Eagles at home, in Lexington. And, if this was not enough motivation for the Eagles, the final match of the regular season would decide the fourth seed in the ODAC tournament. The Eagles would show some grit in taking the field against Washington and Lee, realizing it was their last opportunity to knock off a traditional top level conference foe, and a great opportunity to make a statement against the defending champions. The match would go back and forth, with scoring opportunities on both sides, culminating in the Eagles controlling the run of play in the second half. In the 68th minute, sophomore Abby Dehoff got a step on her defender 30 yards away from goal and sent a perfectly placed cross behind the back line of the Generals and just inside the penalty box where sophomore Krissy Snyder was making a run. Snyder took the ball out of the air and past the charging goalkeeper and was taken down hard inside the penalty area. The Eagles were awarded the penalty kick and Dehoff

confidently placed the ball in the back of the net for the game winning goal. The Eagles beat the Generals for the first time on the road in Lexington. In doing so, they had upset the defending ODAC champions and also claimed the fourth seed in the ODAC tournament, bringing a women’s soccer ODAC tournament game to the Bridgewater campus for the first time in school history. The victorious day would end with members of the Eagles overhearing the Washington and Lee webcast announcers proclaiming, “The Bridgewater College Eagles have arrived.” The Eagles had a solid week of practice heading into their first ever home tournament match. In front of a record setting crowd, filled with many special guests that were invited by the Bridgewater coaches because of their impact on the players’ lives, the Eagles would see experience come to fruition. In a return match from the previous week, Washington and Lee would take an early lead into the half. At the start of the second half, the Eagles would fall behind 2-0. However, unlike the past, the Eagles would respond with vigor immediately, putting the ball in the back of the net less than two minutes later off a Melanie Waters screamer from freshman Melanie Waters. The Eagles would again control the run of play over the Generals heading towards the final whistle, but unlike the week before, they would not find a game winner, and after an intense effort, fall 2-1. The trend setting Eagles would continue their rewriting of the history books again this year as they ended the 2010 season with a new mark for best record in conference play, at 8-3, and finished with a winning record in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history. The Eagles also garnered a record number of players selected to the All-ODAC team, with Meghan Groos, Jessica Palmer, Brittney Harris, and Melanie Waters selected to the All-ODAC second team, while Abby Dehoff was named honorable mention. The bar has been raised at Bridgewater College. And, the above trends certainly point toward not only another promising season next fall, but a permanent home for the Eagles among the top teams in the ODAC.
