The 2013 season marks head coach J.D. Kyzer's 14th at the helm of the UTC soccer program. In his tenure at Chattanooga, the Lady Mocs marked their first advancement into the Southern Conference Tournament and posted three consecutive doubledigit win seasons. Under his guidance, the Chattanooga program has produced 14 All-Conference performers, two all-tournament players, two all-freshman team members, 11 athletes of the week, two studentathletes of the week and a national player of the week. In 2011, junior junior Becca Smith led the Southern Conference in scoring for the second time in three seasons and earned an all-conference nod from the league coaches along with teammate Donna-Kay Henry whose outstanding career came to a close. Henry became the first UTC soccer player to earn allconference honors all-four seasons. The Mocs jumped out to a 5-1-1 start, one of the best in school history, second to its 2009 start that saw UTC go 5-0, the best in school history, with four consecutive shutouts to start the season. Henry and Smith led the Southern Conference in scoring and goals throughout the season. Henry was named all-conference for her efforts while Smith earned a spot on the all-freshman team. In 2004, UTC posted a school-record 12 wins. That season is a benchmark for the Mocs. Besides wins, UTC set new standards with 50 goals, 52 assists, 152 points, a 0.86 goals-against average while allowing an all-time low 15 goals in 18 games. Chattanooga shutout seven opponents and only allowed five teams to score two or more goals. One of those shutouts was a 2-0 victory over Alabama, UTC's first-ever win over an SEC opponent. Diana Jallo, a junior striker, scored both goals and for her effort, was named a National Player of the Week by Soccer America. Jallo led the league in goals, shots and scoring for the second straight season and earned her second All-Conference honor. Kyzer was chosen to be Chattanooga's second head soccer coach in March 1999. The team responded with school records

for overall wins and Southern Conference wins and set numerous individual standards in 2000. While the team's 2001 record dipped, the Mocs set a new mark against the league in wins. A small, but talented squad battled several SEC schools and lost seven games by just one or two goals. In 2002, Kyzer led his team to its first double-digit win season with 10 victories. The squad set school records in wins, goals, points, shots, corner kicks, shutouts, fewest goals allowed and the lowest goals-against average. Three individuals set or tied four more school marks. Fueled by record-setting seasons, the Mocs continued to rewrite the books in 2003 under Kyzer's guidance. For the first time since the league limited its postseason tournament to the top eight teams, the Mocs earned a spot in the event and captured a first-round win over East Tennessee State before falling to Furman in the quarterfinals. For his efforts, Kyzer was voted the 2003 Southern Conference Coach of the Year by his peers. He directed the team to a 10-6-3 overall record and a 6-2-3 SoCon record, the best in school history. Three of his players were named All-Conference by the league coaches and two were named to the All-Tournament Team.
