WOMEN’S SOCCER

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. e 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. e 2006 Big Ten final was broadcast by CSTV (CBS College Sports). e Nittany Lions have enjoyed great success at Jeffrey Field, compiling a 153-17-5 record (.889) in 16 seasons, with six undefeated home slates (1996, ‘98, 2001, ‘02, ‘03 and ‘05) including undefeated home seasons four of the last nine years. 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 again. A frenzied crowd of 3,208 cheered on the Lions in their upset-victory over No. 2 UCLA on Aug. 25. e 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. is year, the Lions will host Virginia, William & Mary, Bucknell and Dartmouth in non-conference action as well as an always strong Big Ten slate that includes Michigan State, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan. On the road, the Nittany Lions have also exhibited their skills before large crowds. In addition to the 40,000 fans at the Wembley exhibition match in 1997, Penn State played before crowds of 14,013 at the 1999 College Cup in San Jose, Calif., and almost 10,000 at the 2002 College Cup in Austin, Texas. 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 closer to Jeffrey Field.

47-18-4 (.710) 87-46-7 (.646)

2009 BIG TEN COACH OF THE YEAR Head coach Erica Walsh enters her fourth season at the helm of the Penn State women's soccer program. After a tough 2-4 start to the 2009 season, Walsh led the Nittany Lions to a remarkable turnaround, going 10-1-2 in the last 13 games of the regular season, earning her the 2009 Big Ten Coach of the Year Award for her efforts. In March of 2010, Walsh’s alma mater, William & Mary, honored her by inducting her into the W&M Athletics Hall of Fame. With the impressive end to the season, Walsh and her charges captured the program's 12th-straight Big Ten Championship, tying a record for most consecutive women's Big Ten titles won held by the Michigan swimming & diving program. By winning the Big Ten, the Nittany Lions continued their string of NCAA Tournament berths, making their 15th-straight appearance in the 64team field in 2009. For the second time in three years, Penn State hosted the first and second rounds of tournament play. Walsh also orchestrated one of the finest awards seasons in Penn State history when Katie Schoepfer, Alyssa Naeher and Christine Nairn swept the year-end Big Ten Player of the Year awards. Schoepfer was named the Offensive Player of the Year, Naeher the Defensive Player of the Year and Nairn the Freshman of the Year. Danielle Toney was named to the All-Big Ten First Team, while WALSH’S COLLEGIATE RÉSUMÉ Lexi Marton garnered Second Team Head Coach mention.

players of the year to three awards as Naeher was also the 2007 recipient of the Defensive Player of the Year honors in Walsh's first year in Happy Valley. Walsh continued her success from the 2007 campaign into a 16-8-0 record that saw Penn State capture its 11th-straight Big Ten Championship and the 2008 Big Ten Tournament crown. Her transition to Penn State was quite smooth as the 2007 team finished 18-4-2, including a 9-1-0 mark in conference play, and was ranked 12th in the final NSCAA poll of the season. When she came to Penn State, Walsh brought with her a wealth of experience at both the international and collegiate levels. She already has coached at six different universities, including three stints as head coach as well as serving as an assistant for the U.S. U-19 team in 2004. Walsh served as head coach of the U-17 team from December 2004 until her hire at Penn State in February of 2007. As of January 2009, Walsh was appointed as a member of the Panel of Instructors and Lecturers for FIFA Courses. In addition, she was appointed as the Chairman of the Women's Technical Committee for the period of January 1, 2009 to June 30, 2011. In January of 2008, Walsh was named as the assistant coach by Pia Sundhage for the U.S. National Team. With Walsh's help and guidance the U.S. team completed its historic run with a gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Even sweeter was that Walsh's main responsibility was the U.S. Team's defense, which held fellow world power Brazil scoreless in the gold medal game. e head coach at Harvard University as well as the U.S. Under-17 team prior to her hiring at Penn State, Walsh has consistently been active among the coaching ranks both at the Division I level and the U.S. Youth National Team program for nearly a decade.

SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS

SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS For the past two years, the Penn State soccer family has been involved in a non-profit organization called Soccer Without Borders. 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 Ann 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. e camp and clinics continue to go incredibly well and the project now has a permanent, sustainable presence in Granada. e volunteers in March 2009 were there to see the opening of the first Soccer Without Borders community center just for girls. e 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. ey 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. 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.” Cook said.

PENN STATE 2010

WOMEN’S SOCCER

15 STRAIGHT NCAA APPEARANCES 1995-2009


2009 SEASON REVIEW Against one of the toughest schedules in the country, the Penn State women’s soccer team, struggled out of the gate, only to turn in yet another Big Ten Championship run en route to the team’s 15th consecutive NCAA appearance. e Nittany Lions took a season opening 1-0 win over nationally ranked Virginia at Jeffrey Field on a muggy Aug. 21 night thanks to a Danielle Toney sixth-minute breakaway goal and solid goalkeeping by Alyssa Naeher. After that early game, PSU’s offense sputtered, going just 1-4 including two shutouts of a potent offense, leaving the Nittany Lions at 2-4 overall. Two straight wins over Boston University (3-0) and James Madison (2-0) looked to turn the tide, but a disappointing scoreless tie at Bucknell coupled with a heartbreaking 3-2 overtime-defeat at Michigan State in the Big Ten opener left the team with some doubts about the season’s success. Penn State overcame the adversity of the MSU loss with a gritty 10-player 2-1 upset of then-No. 15 Ohio State at Jeffrey Field that sent the Nittany Lions on a path to a record-tying 12th straight Big Ten title. Penn State captured solid home wins over Northwestern (2-0) and Iowa (4-0) before embarking on a trip to Minnesota and Wisconsin. Minnesota shared top honors in 2008 with the Nittany Lions during the Big Ten regular season, but fell in the Championship game for the Big Ten double. Katie Schoepfer laced a last-second free kick past the Gopher keeper and the Nittany Lions escaped St. Paul, Minn. with a frantic and well deserved 1-0 win as Naeher made a career-high 12 saves. Two days later, up and coming Wisconsin rallied from a two-goal deficit to stymie the Nittany Lions’ hope of a five-game winning streak. Nevertheless, Penn State had positioned themselves into great position in the final weeks to win the Big Ten title outright. A six-goal thrashing of Illinois on national television saw Schoepfer unleash the first hat trick in her PSU career. Four days later, another defining moment of the year came at then-No. 23 Indiana as the Nittany Lions saw a hungry Hooiser team looking to make its mark and earn an NCAA Tournament berth. After an early 1-0 lead, Indiana knotted things up in the second half, but Christine Nairn netted the game-winner on a counter attack to give PSU a crucial 2-1 win. Penn State would complete the sweep of the Indiana schools on Senior Day, Nov. 1, as Toney and out-going seniors Melissa Hayes and Tara Davies

supplied a 4-0 domination of the Purdue Boilermakers. Davies goal was especially memorable as it was the first for the left fullback and included a beautiful chip over the goalkeeper’s head. Davies’ capped the goal with a celebration of a cartwheel and a backflip. During a Friday practice, Penn State learned that Michigan State defeated Ohio State, securing PSU would gain at least a share of the Big Ten title win, lose or draw at Michigan. Penn State had no intentions of sharing anything in 2009 as the Nittany Lions received an early goal from Schoepfer against a stingy defense and an insurance goal by Jackie Molinda sealed the deal and delivered the Big Ten title. Penn State went on to stake claim to each of the major individual awards in the Big Ten as Schoepfer was named the Offensive Player of the Year and Naeher the Defensive Player of the Year. Nairn gathered Freshman of the Year honors and joined Schoepfer and Naeher on the All-Big Ten First Team, which included Toney. Schoepfer and Nairn were unanimous first-team selections, while Nairn was also a unanimous Freshman of the Year pick. Fellow newcomer Lexi Marton was named to the All-Big Ten Second Team and was an unanimous All-Freshman selection, too. Head coach Erica Walsh earned her first Big Ten Coach of the Year Award for staging PSU’s memorable run. With the NCAA bid in hand, Penn State hosted the first and second rounds of the Division I tournament. A 5-0 win over Colgate saw Schoepfer net her second hat trick of the season against the Patriot League champions. Unfortunately for the Nittany Lions, their run of nine wins and one tie in the previous 10 games came to an end when Virginia avenged the early-season loss to PSU in August with an NCAA Second Round victory. PSU’s season ended at 13-6-2 and saw Schoepfer, Naeher, Nairn and Toney receive NSCAA All-Great Lakes First Team accolades. Schoepfer and Naeher were named to the NSCAA All-America ird Team, while Nairn was named the TopDrawerSoccer.com Rookie of the Year. Schoepfer gathered NSCAA Scholar All-America First Team honors to cap her stellar career and was drafted by Sky Blue FC in the WPS draft. Naeher was a first-round selection as she was chosen by the Boston Breakers 13th overall, joining fellow Connecticut resident and former Nittany Lion great, Tiffany Weimer.

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. Head coach Erica Walsh was an assistant on the U.S. Women’s National Team that won gold for the U.S. at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and continues to serve head coach Pia Sundhage at the Senior National Team level. Two-time All-American Erin McLeod was the starting goalkeeper for the Canadian National Team at those Games. Current Nittany Lions Christine Nairn, Danielle Toney and incoming freshman Maya Hayes have all worn the Stars and Stripes this past year with graduating seniors Alyssa Naeher and Katie Schoepfer making various stops on the National Teams through out the years, leading the U.S. squad to the FIFA Under-20 World Cup championship last fall. Lexi Marton 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. e United States looks for another World Cup win with its appearance in Germany in 2010 led by Nairn. Also on that team as a reserve is Hayes, a standout youth player, who plays up front. Nairn made waves in July 2009 when she scored the game-winning tally against Canada in a 1-0 victory as a reserve. e goal, which came in the final minutes, was her last appearance with the full national squad before her college play began. Ali Krieger, a 2007 graduate, was an alternate on the U.S. Olympic squad and moved onto the full team this past May with a call up to a training camp and friendly against Germany. 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.

NITTANY LIONS IN THE PROS NITTANY LIONS IN... WOMEN’S PROFESSIONAL SOCER (WPS) Six Nittany Lions Play in North America’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, is the starting goalkeeper for the club while Ali Krieger returned stateside to join the club in early June, starting in defense. She has since rejoined her club side, FFC Frankfurt in Germany. 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 of New Jersey, the defending 2009 champions. In all, eight teams comprise the WPS landscape including some holdover teams from the WUSA. e Freedom and Boston Breakers are two of those clubs, while the Atlanta Beat will joined the league in 2010. New clubs such as the Chicago Red Stars, FC Gold Pride and the Sky Blue FC of New Jersey are looking to tap into markets to rekindle the early magic of the WUSA and sustain the league throughout the years. Many of the teams have links to current Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs, whether it is sharing a stadium or marketing strategies. Washington plays in RFK Stadium with D.C. United, arguably the most successful MLS team. Chicago shares Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill. with the Chicago Fire. Joining Atlanta as an expansion team in 2010 is the Philadelphia Independance, who are going to be run in conjunction with the MLS’s newest franchise, the Philadelphia Union. ey will play in the state-of-the-art PPL Park, on the banks of the Delaware River, during the 2011 season after a year at West Chester University.

Selected in the third round (12th pick), she served as a reserve player for the Power. In 2002, All-American goalkeeper Emily Oleksiuk and regional All-American Bonnie Young were drafted in 2002. Young was selected in the second round (14th overall pick) by her one-time head coach Patrick 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. e WUSA suspended operations in 2003, but league “Festivals” were held during the summer of 2004 and the league relaunched as Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) in 2009. 34

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). e Nittany Lions became the first American women’s team to play in England’s Wembley Stadium.

M.A.C HERMANNY TROPHY HISTORY

PENN STATE WOMEN’S SOCCER AND THE M.A.C. HERMANN TROPHY In its first 15 years, the Penn State women’s soccer program has put its name on the collegiate soccer map and underlined it with the likes of great players such as Christie Welsh, Joanna Lohman and Tiffany Weimer. All three were finalists for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, awarded to the top collegiate soccer player in the country, with Welsh becoming the first Lion to bring home the honor in 2001. Six of the past nine years, a Nittany Lion has either won the award or been named the runner-up, an amazing accomplishment for such a young program. All told, three Nittany Lions have been finalists for the award, while nearly half a dozen have been on the watchlist or among the semifinalists for the award, including semifinalists Erin McLeod in 2005 and Ali Krieger in 2006.

Above: Penn State’s Christie Welsh was the 2001 Hermann Trophy winner as well as the runner-up for the player of the year award in 2000 and 2002. One of Penn State’s most decorated athletes, Welsh is still the Big Ten’s all-time leading scorer.
