Pac-10 Conference he Pacific-10 Conference continues to uphold its tradition as the "Conference of Champions."®, claiming an incredible 171 NCAA team titles over the past 20 years, including eight in 2009-10, averaging nearly nine championships per academic year. Even more impressive has been the breadth of the Pac-10’s success, with championships coming in 26 different men’s and women’s sports. The Pac10 has led the nation in NCAA Championships in 44 of the last 50 years and finished second five times. Spanning nearly a century of outstanding athletics achievements, the Pac-10 has captured 390 NCAA titles (267 men’s,123 women’s), far outdistancing the runner-up Big Ten Conference’s 226 titles. The Pac-10 captured eight NCAA titles in 2009-10, tying with the ACC for the most in the country. Of the eight titles, Pac-10 teams claimed a nation’s-best five women’s NCAA crowns. California also captured the IRA National Championship in men’s rowing, the Pac10’s ninth national title of the season. NCAA team champions came from USC (men’s water polo, women’s water polo, men’s tennis), Stanford (men’s volleyball, women’s tennis) and UCLA (women’s gymnastics, softball). The Pac10 also had runners-up in 14 NCAA Championship events: men’s cross country (Oregon), women’s soccer (Stanford), men’s water polo (UCLA), women’s basketball (Stanford), men’s gymnastics (Stanford), men’s swimming (California), women’s swimming (Stanford), men’s indoor track and field (Oregon), baseball (UCLA), softball (Arizona), women’s golf (USC), women’s rowing (California), women’s outdoor track and field (Oregon) and women’s water polo (Stanford). Overall, the Conference had 33 teams finish in the top four at 20 NCAA Championship events. Participation in the postseason was a common occurrence for the Pac-10 in 2009-10. Of the 22 sports sponsored by the Conference, 19 witnessed at least half its teams participating in NCAA or other postseason action. The men sent 64 of a possible 90 teams into the postseason (71.1 percent), while the women sent 73 of a possible 99 teams (73.7 percent). On the men’s side, Pac-10 members have won 267 NCAA team championships, far ahead of the 200 claimed by the runner-up Big Ten. Men’s NCAA crowns have come at a phenomenal rate for the Pac-10 - 15 basketball titles by five schools (more than any other conference), 51 tennis titles, 44 outdoor track & field crowns, and 26 baseball titles. Pac-10 members have won 24 of the last 41 NCAA titles in volleyball, 36 of the last 51 in water polo, and 21 in swimming & diving national championships. Individually, the Conference has produced an impressive number of NCAA men’s individual champions, as well, boasting 1,171 individual crowns. On the women’s side, the story is much the same. Since the NCAA began conducting women’s championships 29 years ago, Pac-10 members have claimed at least four national titles in a single season on 21 occasions, including 2009-10. Overall, the Pac-10 has captured 123 NCAA women’s titles, easily outdistancing the SEC, which is second, with 74. Pac-10 members have dominated a number of sports, winning 22 softball titles, 19 tennis crowns, 13 of the last 20 volleyball titles, 13 of the last 21 trophies in golf, and 11 in swimming & diving. Pac-10 women student-athletes shine nationally on an individual basis, as well, having captured an unmatched 527 NCAA individual crowns, an average of nearly 19 championships per season. The roots of the Paci!c-10 Conference date back over 90 years to December 2, 1915, when the Paci!c Coast Conference (PCC) was founded at a meeting at the Oregon Hotel in Portland, Ore. The original membership consisted of four schools - the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Washington, the University of Oregon, and Oregon State College (now Oregon State University). All still are charter members of the Conference. Paci!c Coast Conference play began in 1916 and, one year later, Washington State College (now Washington State University) was

Justin Davies accepted into the league, with Stanford University following in 1918. In 1922, the PCC expanded to eight teams with the admission of the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of Idaho. In 1924, the University of Montana joined the league roster, and in 1928, the PCC grew to 10 members with the addition of UCLA. The Paci!c Coast Conference competed as a 10-member league until 1950, with the exception of 1943-45 when World War II curtailed intercollegiate athletic competition to a minimum. During that time, the league’s first commissioner was named. Edwin N. Atherton was Commissioner in 1940 and was succeeded by Victor O. Schmidt in 1944. In 1950, Montana resigned from the Conference and joined the Mountain States Conference. The PCC continued as a nine-team Conference through 1958. In 1959, the PCC was dissolved and the Athletic Associates of Western Universities was formed and Thomas J. Hamilton was appointed Commissioner of the new league. The original AAWU membership included California, Stanford, Southern California, UCLA and Washington. Washington State joined the membership in 1962, while Oregon and Oregon State joined in 1964. Under Hamilton’s watch, the name Pacific-8 Conference was adopted in 1968. In 1971, Wiles Hallock took over as Commissioner of the Pac-8. Ten years later, on July 1, 1978, the University of Arizona and Arizona State University were admitted to the league and the Paci!c10 Conference became a reality. In 1986-87, the league took on a new look, expanding to include 10 women’s sports. Thomas C. Hansen was named the Commissioner of the Pac-10 in 1983, a role he would hold for 26 years until 2009. Hansen was succeeded by current Commissioner Larry Scott, who took on the new role in July 2009. Currently, the Pac-10 sponsors 11 men’s sports and 11 women’s sports. Additionally, the Conference is a member of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) in four other men’s sports and three women’s sports.

.500 or better campaign in its five years of the Pac-10. Despite going 3-0-2 against top-15 teams, 2-0-2 versus the top 10, 2-1-3 on the road, and ranking 20th of 204 teams in the final edition of the RPI (released Dec. 14), SDSU was left out of the NCAA tournament. The RPI, which is a mathematical formula designed to objectively compare results and strength of schedule, of 20 was the Aztecs’ best ever (since RPI’s were published online). In addition, San Diego State had the best RPI of the teams who were left out of the tournament (Creighton was second at No. 29). Kirshner led the 2009 squad to wins over NCAA round of 16 foes Stanford and UC Santa Barbara, and draws with final eight rival UCLA (twice) and top-16 seed Michigan State. It marked the seventh time in eight years that his team earned a result (win or tie) against a top-10 school. In addition, SDSU is 5-1-5 against top10 programs since 2005. In Pac-10 play, SDSU was 3-4-3, good enough for fourth place. In fact, since the team moved to the Pac-10 in 2005, the Aztecs have had the third-best conference record with a pair of runner-up finishes. Kirshner coached 10 players to all-Pac-10 selections in 2009, the most in the conference and three more than San Diego State has ever had. Leading the group

of 10 was Nick Cardenas, who earned his fourth straight league accolade. Cardenas would later pick up his fourth consecutive NSCAA/adidas all-Far West nod, garnering second-team consideration. Three SDSU players - Steve Beitashour (San Jose Earthquakes, second round, 30th overall), Nick Cardenas (Kansas City Wizards, third round, 36th overall) and Jamel Wallace (Seattle Sounders FC, fourth round, 59th overall) - were later selected in the 2010 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. The Aztecs’ three draft selections were tied with NCAA runner-up Akron and Notre Dame for the third-most in the country, as only two schools (UCLA (5) and Wake Forest (4)) had more. In 2008, Kirshner, who was named one of the 20-most influential in San Diego County soccer by the website XKSanDiego.com, guided San Diego State to a 34-3 record in Pac-10 play, good enough for third place, its third straight third-orbetter finish. He led the squad to a 3-1-0 record over its final four matches, including a 1-0 shutout over seventh-ranked California. Kirshner coached seven players to all-Pac-10 honors, then tied for the most in his nine-year tenure, including Nick Cardenas’ third straight league accolade. Cardenas would later go onto be picked for his third consecutive NSCAA/adidas All-Far West team. In 2007, Kirshner led the squad to its second consecutive runner-up finish in the Pac-10, despite being picked fifth in the preseason poll. The runner-up result came on the heels of back-to-back trips to the NCAA tournament; a feat that hadn’t been done at SDSU since the 1988 and 1989 seasons. In addition, 2007’s 8-7-4 mark gave San Diego State its fourth winning campaign in five years and third consecutive, something that hadn’t been done on the campus since 1990-92. SDSU’s 4-4-2 mark in the Pac-10 included three straight over nationally ranked foes UCLA, California and Stanford. The victory over the Bruins on Oct. 6 was the program’s first since Oct. 11, 1989. With a tie later on in the season, the Aztecs won the season series between the two schools for the first time since 1969, their second season of Division I soccer. San Diego State was 3-1-2 against nationally ranked teams, and were ranked as high as No. 18 by Soccer America, No. 20 by Top Drawer Soccer, No. 24 by Soccer Times, No. 24 by College Soccer News and No. 25 by NSCAA/adidas. Kirshner orchestrated the team’s move to the Pac-10 in 2005, arguably one of the top soccer conferences in the nation. The move gave SDSU its full allotment of scholarships for the first time in program history and the victories followed shortly thereafter. Over the past five seasons since joining the Pac-10, the Aztecs have gone 3832-23 (.532) and 17-17-16 (.500) in league play. San Diego State has posted 11 wins against nationally ranked teams and has earned nine draws over those five years. Kirshner believes that talented players and top-notch competition go hand-inhand, so he wants his SDSU teams to be characterized by their success against quality opponents. “When you start stepping up your competition, you need better players,” Kirshner said. “I think that the two have complemented each other well and put us in position to not only play those teams, but actually beat them.” Kirshner’s disciplined approach and motto of “One team, one family, one mission” combined to produce three top-40 recruiting classes from 2005-07, and two more the past two seasons. The Aztecs were ranked No. 39 by College Soccer News in 2005, No. 19 in 2006, No. 17 in 2007, No. 22 in 2009, and No. 29 this year, respectively. In 2006, Kirshner guided San Diego State to a 5-2-3 Pac-10 mark to give the team a second-place finish in just its second year in one of the toughest conferences in the nation. Included in the five league wins was a season sweep over eventual champion California. The team’s nine goals allowed tied Stanford for the fewest given up in conference play. The strong season catapulted SDSU into the NCAA tournament for the second

finish. Kirshner and his assistant, Amos Magee, became only the second and third members of the U.S. soccer delegation to have won two medals in the World Maccabiah Games. Additionally, Kirshner’s squad earned the tournament's "Fair Play" Award, which is given to the team that exhibited the best sportsmanship. Kirshner has valuable experience working with all levels of soccer having had stints with the Region IV Olympic Development Program (ODP) and serving as the interim head coach of the national runner-up West team during the 2001 U.S. regional championship. He was also as an assistant coach during the team’s undefeated April 2002 tour of Australia. Additionally, Kirshner worked as both an assistant and head coach with the Northern California ODP U-23 men's team during 1995 and 1996. He led those squads to consecutive Western Regional championships, including a third-place finish at the 1995 Donnelly Cup. He also won a Western Regional title with the under-15 ODP Northern California state team as the assistant coach of the 1984 age group. Kirshner possesses a USSF A-License and has received the NSCAA Premiere Badge with distinguished honors; the highest accolade provided by that organization. Recently, Kirshner was inducted to the first hall of fame class at his alma mater, Mission San Jose High School. While at Mission San Jose, he guided his soccer team to two North Coast Section (NCS) appearances. During his senior season, he led his squad to its school’s first soccer league title en route to the NCS semifinals, where it fell to De La Salle on penalty kicks. Kirshner was a three-time allleague selection and led his team in points all four years. Adding to his list of prep achievements, Kirshner finished third in the NCS badminton championships his junior year, won the title as a senior and was a varsity cross country runner his sophomore and junior years. Kirshner maintains ties with the community through his involvement with the Hotspurs Soccer Club, for which he was the director of soccer operations from 1999-2002. In addition, Kirshner has hosted numerous free clinics and seminars. Currently, Kirshner works for the PQ Premier coaching their U-12 boys team. In his time away from soccer, Kirshner enjoys reading biographies of coaches. He is an avid golfer and resides in Pacific Beach.

straight season, where they would fall in the first round at eventual national champion UC Santa Barbara, 2-1. The Aztecs went 2-0 in the inaugural The Soccer Post/Aztec Classic and 1-01 in the USD/SDSU Soccer Tournament, and defeated three nationally ranked foes. Kirshner’s senior goalkeeper Tally Hall was a M.A.C. Hermann Award semifinalist, an All-American for the second consecutive year, a Scholar-Athlete AllAmerican, an all-Far West selection and a first-team all-Pac-10 selection. Hall was joined on the all-conference team by Pac-10 Freshman of the Year Cardenas and five others, making the seven selections then the highest total in school history. In 2005, Kirshner led SDSU to a 9-4-6 record, its best mark since 1991, and a trip to its first NCAA tournament since 1989, before falling at UC Santa Barbara, 2-0, in the first round. Kirshner helped the Aztecs receive numerous honors in 2005. SDSU was nationally ranked by all four polls during the season and reached as high as No. 14 by Soccer America and College Soccer News. The Aztecs ranked first nationally with a 87.9 shots-on-goal save percentage and second in the country with a 0.54 goals against average. SDSU did not allow a goal in the first half the entire season. Under Kirshner’s tutelage, Hall became the first Aztec to receive All-American honors since National Soccer Hall of Fame member Marcelo Balboa did so in 1989. In addition to Hall, four others were named to the all-Pacific 10 Conference team, including sophomore midfielder Kraig Chiles. Kirshner didn’t rest on his laurels in the offseason. Instead, he brought in the 17th-best recruiting class in the country, according to College Soccer News. No stranger to winning, Kirshner has a mold and a style that his players have bought into; one that has shown proven results when building programs. Before coming to SDSU, Kirshner coached the women of Cañada College (Redwood City, Calif.) from 1992-95. During that time, he took over a program that had never won a conference game and led it to a 16-1-3 record his final year. The season would finish with a loss in penalty kicks in the California State Quarterfinals. For his efforts, he was named the Coast Conference Coach of the Year. He also served as the men's assistant coach at Cañada and helped with their run to the state quarterfinals in 1992 and 1994. From there, Kirshner moved to a head coaching position at Ohlone College (Fremont, Calif.) in the fall of 1995. At Ohlone, he helped take a team from a second-to-last place league finish the previous season to as high as a No. 15 state ranking. Prior to his arrival at SDSU, Kirshner also served as the men's assistant coach at his alma mater, Rutgers. Kirshner helped the Scarlet Knights to the second round at the 1996 NCAA tournament, and a No. 13 national ranking and a 14-7-4 record. Before taking over the Aztecs’ head spot eight years ago, Kirshner spent three seasons as an assistant coach for the SDSU men's program under long-time head coach Chuck Clegg, the school’s all-time winningest coach. In his first season at SDSU’s helm, Kirshner’s team improved its win total from the previous year, despite playing top-ranked UCLA and traditional powers Washington, Portland and San Diego. As a player at Rutgers, Kirshner was part of a 1987 NCAA quarterfinal team, a 1989 NCAA semifinal squad that lost to eventual co-champion Virginia and a runner-up finisher to UCLA in the 1990 championship match. He received his undergraduate degree in communication while graduating with honors in 1991, and is listed as one of the soccer program's top 25 alums. “Lev was an outstanding player for us and a very integral part of a team that went to two Final Fours in his career,” Rutgers head coach Bob Reasso said. “In my 25 years at Rutgers, Lev was one of the finest players ever to come through our program.” Following his collegiate career, Kirshner represented the United States in 1993, winning a bronze medal for the U.S. national Maccabiah team. In 1997, he returned to Israel as captain of the U.S. team, and led the only squad to defeat eventual gold-medalist Brazil. Kirshner was selected as one of 250 domestic and international athletes to be assessed in the inaugural Major League Soccer combine in 1995. Kirshner also had a stint in the USISL starting for the Reno Rattlers. During that year, he trained with and played in several intrasquad reserve games for the MLS San Jose Clash. Kirshner was named coach of the U.S. Maccabiah Pan-American U-20 soccer team in December 2003, where he won a bronze medal in Santiago, Chile. In the summer of 2005, Kirshner led the national Maccabiah squad to a second-place

COACHING STAFF

Matt Hall enters his 11th season as an assistant with the San Diego State men’s soccer program. His primary duties are working with the goalkeepers. In addition to his goalkeeping duties, Hall coordinates the team’s recruiting, and organizes and runs practice sessions. Known as one of the top assistant coaches in the nation, Hall has coached a goalkeeper to a postseason honor in eight of his nine seasons on The Mesa. “I am so fortunate that Matt has become such a significant part of my personal and professional life,” head coach Lev Kirshner said. “Since 1997, when Matt first played for me, I have enjoyed watching him mature as an adult and professional. Matt has become one of my closest friends and I am so blessed to have him as my assistant. This program would not be the same without him and neither would my life.” SDSU posted three shutouts a year ago, including back-to-back clean sheets against NCAA tournament foe Princeton (W, 1-0) and Washington (T, 0-0) on Sept. 27 and Oct. 2, respectively. The team’s other shutout came in a 2-0 win over No. 11 California Oct. 25 in Berkeley. Brad Byrns (6-6-4) started 16 of the team’s 18 games, registering a team-high 71 saves and 76.3 save percentage, while recording all three of San Diego State’s shutouts. R.J. Smith (0-0-2) played brilliantly in his two starts, posting a team-low 1.23 goals against average over 220 minutes. In 2008, Hall and the Aztecs dealt with a plethora of injuries at the goalkeeper position, but was still able to post five shutouts. Morgan Maestas (1.16 GAA, 388:36), Byrns (1.47 GAA, 244:12), orge Rosales (1.52 GAA, 831:06) and Smith (1.97 GAA, 228:46) all appeared in at least three games and started at least twice. On Nov. 4, Rosales earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors after SDSU beat No. 7 California when he faced 20 shots and eight corner kicks, all while playing a man down the final 49:52. He made five saves to preserve the shutout. In 2007, Byrns posted a 6-1-2 record with a 0.73 goals against average and amassed five shutouts before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the season. Despite missing 10 games, Byrns was still named to the Pac-10 all-conference team as an honorable mention selection. The feat was even more amazing as Byrns had the daunting task of having to replace two-time All-American Tally Hall. Under Hall’s guidance in 2006, Tally Hall (no relation) became the first Aztec to earn All-America honors in consecutive years since National Soccer Hall of Famer member Marcelo Balboa accomplished the feat in 1988 and again in 1989. Tally Hall also was a M.A.C. Hermann Award semifinalist, a Scholar AllAmerican and a first-team all-West Region and all-Pac-10 performer. In the 2006 campaign, Matt Hall helped the SDSU goalkeepers limit the opposition to just nine goals in Pac-10 play, tied with Stanford for the fewest in the conference. A year before (2005), Tally Hall and the Aztecs led the nation with a 88.9 shotson-goal save percentage and was second in the country with a 0.49 goals against average, both school records. For his efforts, he was named a first-team all-Far West selection and first-team all-Pac-10 pick. In 2004, Hall earned all-academic honors by the MPSF, the same honor Colin Hanke won in 2003. Brian Barnes broke his own single-season saves record in 2002 en route to being named a second-team all-MPSF selection and all-academic pick. In 2001, Tim Edwards earned first-team all-MPSF honors after going 4-5-4 with a 1.56 goals against average and two shutouts. Edwards was even better in conference play, posting a 1.07 GAA in seven appearances. Barnes, who would go onto become the school’s all-time leader with 282 saves, was named to the MPSF Pacific Division first team in 2000 and was selected to the all-academic team after recording 90 saves. Actively involved as the team’s recruiting coordinator, Matt Hall helped San Diego State to consecutive top-20 nationally rated recruiting classes, three top-40 classes from 2005-07, and a top-25 class this summer. The Aztecs were ranked No. 39 by College Soccer News in 2005, No. 19 in 2006, No. 17 in 2007 and No. 22 in 2009, respectively. The accolades are not surprising since Hall helped Kirshner build the program back up to a national force. Hall helped SDSU earn a full allotment of scholarships for the first time in school history. In the process, the Aztecs joined the Pac-10, arguably one of the top soccer conferences in the nation. Hall’s efforts were recognized by College Soccer News in 2007, when he was

10

named on of the top 12 assistant coaches in the nation. In the article, the website wrote that, “Some might overlook the contribution that Hall has made to the rise in prominence of the program at San Diego State over the past few years but that would be a mistake. The statistics regarding the effectiveness of the Aztec netminders over the past few years and the quality of the recruiting classes which San Diego State has attracted are proof positive of the contribution that Hall is making.” Hall is a familiar face to San Diego State soccer fans, having spent three years (1996-98) defending the Aztecs’ net and beginning SDSU’s recent tradition of nationally-renowned goalkeepers. Hall is listed third on the school’s season saves list, recording 89 during the 1998 campaign. He is ranked third on SDSU’s career saves list with 213. Only Hall pupils Barnes (1999-2002) and Tally Hall (2003-06) are above Hall on the lists.

He resides in San Diego with his wife Kelli, and their daughter, Madden Michele, who was welcomed into the Aztec family on Aug. 25, 2008. “Although being a part of Matt and Kelli's wedding party was poignant,” Kirshner said. “I have to say, being there for the birth of their first child, Madden Michele, is one of the greatest moments I have experienced as an Aztec soccer coach. The ability to see Matt's happy, beaming face, while holding Madden for the first time was...well, let's just say, I was a proud mentor, but really I am just a proud friend.”

2010 San Diego State Soccer

2009 Season Recap espite going 3-0-2 against top-15 teams, 2-0-2 versus the top 10, 2-1-3 on the road, and ranking 20th of 204 teams in the final edition of the RPI (released Dec. 14), San Diego State was left out of the 48-team NCAA tournament. The Aztecs learned their fate on ESPNU on Nov. 16. That SDSU was left out of the tournament seems quite shocking. Consider the following: * Of the 27 teams that were awarded an at-large, an astounding 14 schools got into the tournament with lower RPI’s than San Diego State in the Nov. 10 final regular season release, including Brown (No. 41), Portland (No. 43), Saint Mary’s (No. 44) and South Florida (No. 48). The year before, Wisconsin was the first team slighted after the final RPI listed it at No. 38. * In the West Region, only two Pac-10 schools UCLA and Stanford - made the tournament, while four from the West Coast Conference advanced, along with two Big West teams and two from the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. In 2009, the six Pac-10 teams went 20-5-2 (.778) against the three other conferences (6-3-1 vs. the WCC, 7-0-0 vs. the BWC and 7-2-1 vs. the MPSF). Even though the Aztecs were left out of the tourney, the 2009 season still has to be considered a success. A year after going 6-9-3 for their first losing season in their Pac-10 era, SDSU went 6-6-6 in 2009. In addition, San Diego State was 3-3-4 against teams that made the NCAA tournament. The Aztecs were in almost every game as five of their six losses were by one goal. SDSU began its season with a 2-1 loss to Loyola Marymount and a 1-0 setback to San Diego on an own goal. It appeared San Diego State was going to get its first win of the season on Sept. 11 against Univ. of Penn in the first game of the Courtyard Marriott San Diego Central Tournament, but a Quaker goal in the 86th minute tied the game at 2-2, which would remain the same through the two 10minute overtimes. Two days later, the Aztecs rallied from a 2-1 deficit with two goals by Evan Toft, including the game-winning penalty kick with 31 seconds left in the final

overtime, to knock off Wisconsin, 3-2. The win gave SDSU a share of the tournament title with Penn and gave Toft Co-Offensive MVP and Nick Cardenas Co-Defensive MVP honors. Khadim Diouf, Daniel Steres and Jamel Wallace were each named to the all-tournament team. San Diego State stretched its unbeaten streak to three matches on Sept. 8 with a 2-2, double-overtime draw against undefeated Wisconsin-Green Bay. Morgan Sacco and Raymundo Reza each scored for the Aztecs, who played their third consecutive double-overtime game, the first time that has happened on The Mesa in almost eight years (Oct. 26-31, 2001). Facing its biggest challenge of the season thus far on Sept. 25, SDSU responded by doubling up sixthranked UC Santa Barbara, 4-2, thanks to two goals and an assist by Raymundo Reza. Wallace and Toft also scored for San Diego State, while Brad Byrns made six saves in the victory. The Aztecs claimed the Nike Classic title two days later with a 1-0 shutout over Princeton. Toft, who earned Offensive MVP accolades, scored the goal for his fourth straight game with at least one point. Cardenas earned Defensive MVP honors, while Steve Beitashour, Reza and Wallace were all selected to the all-tourney squad. Reza (College Soccer News Team of the Week) and Toft (Soccer America Team of the Week) each earned national accolades for their play over the weekend. SDSU took its five-game unbeaten streak into Pac-10 play with games at Washington and Oregon State. San Diego State, which has struggled in the past in the Northwest, tied the Huskies, 0-0, in double-overtime, but then dropped a 2-1 overtime match against the Beavers. The Aztecs responded on Oct. 11 with a resilient, 2-2, double-overtime tie against second-ranked UCLA at SDSU SportsDeck. Despite playing without its leading scorer (Toft) and Wallace (except for final 0:14), and a man down the final 27 minutes, 52 seconds of the match, SDSU held on for the result. Devon Sandoval and Cardenas scored for San Diego State. It was an up-and-down following weekend for the Aztecs. On Oct. 16, SDSU gave up two goals over the final 5:19 in a 2-1 overtime loss to No. 16 Stanford. Two days later, Sacco scored a goal 9:16 into the first overtime to lift San Diego State to a 2-1 victory over No. 6 California. The golden goal came after A.J. Soares tied it for the Bears on a penalty kick in the 89th minute. Reza also scored for the Aztecs, who outshot Cal, 18-10, including a 13-3 advantage over the final 54:36. On Oct. 23, Diouf took a pass from Daniel Ortega just 2:13 into the first overtime and slotted a shot past a diving goalkeeper to give SDSU a 2-1 win at No. 17 Stanford, reversing what happened just one week earlier. Cardenas also scored for San Diego State, while Byrns had four saves. The Aztecs kept their winning streak alive two days later as Reza scored both goals in a 2-0 triumph over 11th-ranked Cal in Berkeley. For his efforts, Reza was named the Pac10 Player of the Week, and selected to the College Soccer News and Top Drawer Soccer teams of the week. SDSU stretched its unbeaten streak to four games

Nick Cardenas with a 1-1, double-overtime tie at Michigan State on the Spartans’ Senior Day on Nov. 1. Diouf scored off assists from Reza and Ortega. San Diego State, however, struggled the next week, dropping home conference matches to Washington (2-0) and Oregon State (2-1). In need of a result to be eligible for the NCAA tournament, the Aztecs got one in a spirited 1-1 doubleovertime draw at No. 5 UCLA on Nov. 5, behind a Matt McManus goal and four solid saves by R.J. Smith. The impressive tie, however, was not enough to sway the selection committee, ending SDSU’s season at 6-6-6. San Diego State received a number of individual awards at the conclusion of the 2009 campaign. Foremost among the honorees was Cardenas, who became the first player in the Aztecs’ storied history to be named to four consecutive all-region teams as he was named to the NSCAA All-Far West Region Second Team. Cardenas led a group of 10 who were named to the all-Pac-10 team, the most in the conference and three more than SDSU has ever had in its five-year history with the Pac-10. Cardenas was a first-team pick, while Reza and Diouf were named second-team selections. Beitashour, Ortega, Toft, Wallace, Justin Davies, Steres and Jose Altamirano all were picked as honorable mention selections. Beitashour and Reza were later named All-Academic Pac-10 picks. The individual accolades culminated on Jan. 14, 2010, when Beitashour (No. 30, second round - San Jose Earthquakes), Cardenas (No. 36, third round Kansas City Wizards) and Wallace (No. 59, fourth round - Seattle Sounders FC) were picked in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft. The three draft selections were tied with NCAA runner-up Akron and Notre Dame for the third-most in the country, as only two schools (UCLA (5) and Wake Forest (4)) had more.

Stephen L. Weber, the seventh president of San Diego State University, provides dynamic leadership to an institution that ranks among the largest in the nation and third largest in California. Educated as a philosopher, President Weber began his tenure at SDSU in July 1996 and shortly afterward initiated a broad-based dialog intended to set the course for the University’s future. Under President Weber’s guidance, students, faculty, staff, alumni and community leaders participated in shaping this “Shared Vision.” SDSU is now moving boldly ahead toward goals set by those discussions: reinforcing academic excellence, nurturing students, honoring diversity and social justice, carefully stewarding resources and further developing global programs. A champion of community involvement as well as academic excellence, President Weber has been an advocate for community service. Leading by example, he is immediate past chair of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Board of Directors and co-chairs Partners for K-12 School Reform.

Jim Sterk was announced as San Diego State University's new Director of Intercollegiate Athletics on February 10, 2010, by SDSU President Stephen L. Weber. "I'm thrilled with this opportunity and looking forward to taking SDSU Athletics to the next level of success," said Sterk. "We want to build a program that the University, the community and all Aztecs fans can be proud of." Sterk was hired just in time to see the Aztecs experience the best season on the playing field and in the classroom in school history. In fact, in Sterk’s first 20 days on his new job, he watched the San Diego State men’s and women’s basketball teams claim the Mountain West Conference tournament championships, watched both programs advance to the NCAA Tournament, and was on site when the women’s program upset Texas and West Virginia en route to advancing to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history. In 2009-10, San Diego State set school records in the Learfield Directors’ Cup, which rewards overall athletic success, by having eight sports earn points. The Aztecs finished 65th nationally out of all Division I schools. In addition, a school-record 246 individuals were honored as scholar student-athletes at the year-end banquet. “Division I athletics is an important tradition at San Diego State and increasingly a big part of the SDSU student experience," said Jim Sterk Sterk. "We are going to build on that tradition and reach out to students, staff, alumni and the entire community.” Director of Athletics Sterk, 54, came to SDSU from Washington State University where he served as Director of Athletics since 2000. Prior to his hire at WSU, he served as AD at Portland State University from 1995 to 2000. He brings 24 years of experience in athletics administration performing a variety of roles. His appointment followed a national search. Sterk also brings a solid reputation and the respect of his peers across the country - WSU having been recognized in 2006 as the Division IA Athletic Directors' "Program of Excellence." Sterk oversaw a period of unparalleled succes at Washington State - with historic accomplishments both on and off the field. Over his last three years at WSU, 13 Cougar teams competed in NCAA post-season tournaments, including back-to-back trips to the NCAA tournament by the men’s basketball team (2007 and 2008), while women’s rowing earned five NCAA Championship bids, including a fourth-place finish in 2006, the highest finish ever by a WSU women’s team in NCAA postseason competition Academically, the graduation rate for those student-athletes who exhausted their eligibility at WSU was 92 percent over the past 10 years - ranking WSU second in the Pac-10 to Stanford. WSU student-athletes maintained a 3.01 average cumulative GPA in 2008-09, and for 10 consecutive semesters, averaged at least a 3.00 cumulative GPA. WSU Athletic Foundation membership doubled under Sterk, and annual gifts increased from just under $3 million in 2000 to more than $13 million in 2008. Sterk, during his tenure at WSU, served as chair of the Pac-10 Athletic Directors committee and served on numerous Pacific-10 Conference committees. Sterk was a member of the prestigious NCAA Championship/Competition cabinet. Sterk graduated from Western Washington University in 1980 where he earned four letters in football and one in basketball. He was credited with a school-record 164 tackles during the 1977 season, garnering first-team NAIA District I all-star accolades and was named team captain and MVP, helping the Vikings to the district championship game. On Feb. 6, 2010, Sterk was inducted into Western Washington's Athletics Hall of Fame for his success in football. Sterk received his master's degree in sports administration from Ohio University. His professional career has included positions at North Carolina, Maine, Seattle Pacific, Tulane, and Portland State, the latter as director of athletics for five years before joining the Washington State staff. Sterk and his wife Debra have three children: Ashley (21), Amy (18), and Abby (15).

AZTEC SOCCER ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS “AN EDUCATION IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT...”

The men’s soccer team has held the highest overall GPA for Aztec men’s sports eight times since head coach Lev Kirshner started at San Diego State University. The most recent achievement was last fall (2009). In the spring of 1998, the men’s team had the highest GPA of all 18 sports in the San Diego State University athletic department. Five different men’s players have had a total of 10 4.0 GPA’s since Kirshner took over the soccer program, the highest total of any sport on campus. Thirty-four players have been academic all-conference selections in Kirshner’s tenure. The program is proud to have eight Academic or Scholar All-American selections. Three of the eight selections have occurred with Kirshner as head coach.

AZTEC ACADEMICS The dual role of student and athlete can be a daunting challenge for any person at the Division I level. Recognizing that academic challenge, the Student Athlete Academic Support Services program has been developed at San Diego State to assist all student-athletes in achieving academic excellence. It is a source of pride within San Diego State athletics that the department has developed one of the most comprehensive academic support programs in the country.

THE STAFF The SAASS staff includes a director, a learning specialist, four academic advisors, the department’s director of compliance, an eligibility coordinator, a financial aid coordinator as well as a recruitment coordinator. In addition to the full-time staff, the department employs more than 20 mentors and tutors. Collectively, they operate a program that enhances each student’s satisfactory progress toward graduation.

THE SERVICES Throughout the academic year, advisors offer a variety of services to aid individuals in the development of their personal goals and the blueprint for pursuing those goals. All new student-athletes are invited to an orientation that helps lay the foundation for future successes. Each advisor teaches a section of the University’s Freshman Success course (General Studies 100), which deals with specific transition issues for student-athletes. Topics include time management, study skills and test taking. In addition, the course also introduces new students to services such as the Love Library, University Advising Center, Career Services, Health Services and the counseling center.

THE RESOURCES In the fall of 2001, the academic unit joined the rest of the athletic department in moving into the new $30 million, 130,000-square-foot Aztec Athletics Center. The academic staff is located on the third floor of the complex and includes a new 40-station computer lab, individual study rooms and two lecture rooms.

The Brad Walsh Endowed Scholarship was established in 1998 by Bruce and Margo Walsh in honor of their son, Brad. The generous endowment benefits future generations of Aztec men’s soccer players. Head coach Lev Kirshner and the Aztec Athletic Foundation are presently working on a new endowment fund in honor of former head coach George Logan.

THE COMMITMENT San Diego State’s annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Banquet honors students with a grade-point average in excess of 3.2. In 2009-10, 246 student-athletes, more than one-third of the student-athlete body, were honored for their work in the classroom. A new event was launched in 2005 with the inaugural Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Awards. SDSU’s student-athletes were treated to an awards banquet to recognize outstanding individual achievements throughout the athletic department.

ERIC WYNALDA ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP The Eric Wynalda Endowed Scholarship, established in 1995, also benefits SDSU men’s soccer. Wynalda received a Honda for winning the national player of the year award and donated it to Aztec athletics. Thanks to his generosity, the Eric Wynalda Endowed Scholarship was started and is now in its 15th year.

2010 San Diego State Soccer AZTECS IN THE COMMUNITY


2010 San Diego

At San Diego State University, community outreach is an important component of campus life. Over the years, the San Diego State men’s soccer team has been involved in numerous community outreach programs, including Habitat for Humanity, where the student-athletes helped build houses ruined from the San Diego wildfires, Special Olympics, Read Across America and Shop-With-A-Jock. Visits to Children’s Hospital, local elementary schools and special youth clinics are common events for the student-athletes. The men’s soccer team also participates in pregame and postgame clinics, both for coaches and aspiring collegiate players. San Diego State University has a partnership with Encanto Elementary School in which the Aztec athletic department provides student-athlete tutors and mentors for the school. Tickets to SDSU athletic events are rewards for outstanding academic achievement by the elementary students. Food drives, stuffed-animal drives and Christmas gift drives are annual featured at San Diego State University. “The students are providing a community service,” Assistant Director of Academic Services Bre White said. “However, I would say that often times the student-athletes may gain the most from the experience.”

AZTEC FACILITIES

REVIEW

hen there’s no room to build out...build up.” That’s the mantra of modern-day engineers and contractors and is something San Diego State took to heart when designing its soccer/track facility. The six-year-old, $13 million SDSU Sports Deck sits atop the university’s newest two-story parking structure (PS 5). The facility is located at 55th Street and “W Montezuma Avenue at the site of the old Choc Sportsman Oval. The Sports Deck serves as the home for the men’s and women’s soccer programs as well as the SDSU women’s track team. The track team competes on the Choc Sportsman Oval which surrounds the soccer field.

n

The playing turf for soccer is a state-of-the-art natural grass surface with a built in automatic-drainage system. The facility features an all-weather track and was the site of the 2001 and 2007 Mountain West Conference track and field championships.

n

The stadium seats about 1,500 people. The facility includes an electronic message/scoreboard, which is utilized for both soccer and track events. Future plans call for the facility to be lighted for night contests and seating capacity to be increased.

n

The first official NCAA event was held at the Sports Deck on August 25, 2000, when the Aztec women’s soccer team faced Mississippi in its season opener. SDSU won that match, 2-1.

n

The first men’s soccer contest at the site was held on Sept. 1, 2000, versus Christian Heritage. SDSU took that match, 5-0, making the occasion the facility’s first shutout.

n

The facility was dedicated on Friday, Oct. 6, 2000, during a men’s and women’s soccer doubleheader.

n

On Nov. 13, 2005, a stadium record 1,516 fans showed up for SDSU’s men’s soccer game against No. 6 UCLA.

America’s

In place now on Montezuma Mesa are arguably some of the finest facilities in the United States and San Diego State is certainly among the leaders on the West Coast. The athletic department is housed in the $30 million, 130,000-squarefoot Aztec Athletics Center. The centerpiece of the department, which was dedicated in February of 2002, is located just across the street from Viejas Arena and just east of Tony Gwynn Stadium. The four-story Athletics Center provides state-of-the-art facilities coupled with tremendous logistical advantages and a great location for studying, workouts, treatment, and academic support or just stopping by between classes. On the south, the center is buffered by the Sports Deck where both San Diego State’s soccer squads compete, as well as the track and field team. On the north side, it is connected to Peterson Gym, the home of Aztec volleyball and a part-time practice facility for the SDSU basketball teams. The west exit of the building opens onto three 100-yard practice fields. One of the fields is natural grass and two utilize field-turf, providing San Diego State daily options for its workouts. All of San Diego State’s new facilities, including the athletics center, Viejas Arena formerly Cox Arena, Tony Gwynn Stadium, SDSU Sports Deck, Aztec Tennis Center, SDSU Softball Stadium and Aztec Aquaplex have opened since 1997. The buildings are not just sparkling new, but they are already postseason tested. Viejas Arena, the 12,414-seat basketball facility, has twice served as a site for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Division I Championship (first and second rounds) as well as the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Division I National Championship. In 2006, the venue also played host to the McDonald’s High School All-American Basketball game. Additionally, Viejas Arena was one of 16 sites to welcome the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Division I Championships this past season. The SDSU Sports Deck welcomed the Mountain West Conference outdoor track and field championships in 2001 and 2007. Tony Gwynn Stadium was the site of the MWC baseball tournament in 2001 and again in 2010, while SDSU Softball Stadium played host to the 2005 Mountain West Conference softball championship. In March 2007, the two-pool Aztec Aquaplex opened, giving both the Aztec water polo and swimming and diving programs a new on-campus home. The new aquatics center served as the site for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women’s water polo championship in April of 2008 and the venue for the 2010 NCAA Women’s Water Polo Championships. In addition to all of the postseason events San Diego State has played host to, the facilities have also been the home to multiple in-season events. The SDSU track and field squad, along with the baseball, softball, swimming and diving, volleyball and water polo teams all put on their own multiple-team events throughout the season. Every spring, professional football scouts and coaches gather at and utilize the Aztec weight room and then move to the practice fields for NFL Pro Timing Day to catch an up-close glimpse of SDSU graduating football seniors. Besides all of the school’s on-campus facilities, the San Diego State football team plays at Qualcomm Stadium, home of the National Football League’s San Diego Chargers, in Mission Valley. Qualcomm Stadium is the host of the Holiday and Poinsettia Bowls and was the home of Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003. Tony Gwynn Stadium, the Aztec Athletics Center and Aztec Tennis Center were constructed thanks to donations by John Moores and Becky Moores.

Aztec Culture

COACHING STAFF

INTRODUCTION

SDSU’S AZTEC HERITAGE From the early decades of its history, San Diego State has identified itself with the Aztecs, one of the most sophisticated and distinctive societies in the history of the Western Hemisphere. A fitting choice for a university committed to internationalism and diversity, the Aztec identity evokes great pride in Mexico, as well as among many people in the United States, and certainly within the SDSU community. Consequently, San Diego State strives to honor the Aztec people by enhancing awareness, understanding and appreciation of Aztec culture and achievements.

REVIEW

PLAYERS

AZTEC HISTORY Aztec civilization dates back to at least the 12th century A.D. The precise location is still debated by scholars, but tradition tells us of a place somewhere north of modern-day Mexico City known at that time as Aztlan, which meant "the place of the cranes" or "the place of the herons." The people who lived in this land were called Azteca meaning "those of Aztlan." The Azteca eventually left their homeland and

became known as the Mexica. Native folklore attributes this name change to the instructions of the people's patron deity, Huitzilopochtli (Hummingbird on the Left). Around 1325, the Mexica settled on an island in Lake Texcoco, an area that is now the heart of Mexico City, and named it Tenochtitlan or "the place of the fruit of the cactus." A century later, the Mexica and two other Nahuatl-speaking city-states, Texcoco and Tlacopan, combined to create an entity popularly known as the Aztec Empire. Boasting a strong military force, this new alliance commanded a sphere of influence that stretched across much of present-day Mexico. Tenochtitlan and its surrounding valley evolved into a highly sophisticated, multicultural and multilingual city-state of several million inhabitants. At this same time, major European cities numbered only 30,000 to 40,000 in population. A cradle of innovation, the Aztec Empire developed advanced systems of trade, science, politics, religion, education and agriculture. The Aztecs also enjoyed sports and built grand ballcourts to accommodate team events.

RECORDS

HISTORY

THIS IS SDSU

AZTECS AND SDSU San Diego State University first adopted the Aztec name in the 1920s as a nickname for the college's sports teams. In 1925, the student newspaper followed suit, changing its name from The Paper Lantern to The Aztec. Since that time, San Diego State's celebration of Aztec heritage has permeated the campus. In 1936, a Donald Hord sculpture of Montezuma II, the last Aztec emperor, became a welcoming campus icon. With the passing years, Aztec themes echoed in the names, colors and architectural elements of new campus buildings. And Aztec culture became the subject of more than a dozen university courses. In 1941, Monty Montezuma, a character based on Montezuma II, debuted at San Diego State athletic events as a symbolic personification of the Aztecs. Over time, the Montezuma character's look and activities have evolved from a sports mascot into a more dignified and accurate representation of the historical emperor. Montezuma now serves as the university's ambassador of Aztec culture, charged with the responsibility of informing and educating the San Diego community about Aztec civilization. SDSU continues to take pride in its affiliation with Aztec culture and to celebrate the Aztec virtues of strength, valor and intellectual achievement.

Postseason Pride EIGHT NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES INTRODUCTION

The numbers tell the story of the San Diego State men’s soccer program’s rise into elite company. The Aztecs have made eight trips to the NCAA tournament, including two since joining the Pac10 in 2005. SDSU is one of just three Pac-10 teams to reach the final four. The final four appearance came in 1987 when San Diego State came from behind in each of its NCAA tournament games to win by 2-1 scores. The run was stopped in the NCAA championship game when host Clemson downed the Aztecs, 2-0. The 1987 squad joined the 1973 men’s championship volleyball team as the only two Aztec teams to ever make a NCAA final.

COACHING STAFF

Since head coach Lev Kirshner joined the Pac-10 in 2005, SDSU compiled three consecutive winning seasons (first time since 199092), two straight Pac-10 runner-up finishes and three top-tier finishes in a row. In the Pac-10 era, San Diego State has gone 38-32-23 (.532), including a 17-17-16 (.500) record in conference play. Since receiving its full allotment of scholarships, the Aztecs have advanced to the NCAA tournament in two of their five opportunities.

AZTECS ADVANCE TO NCAA TOURNAMENT IN JUST SECOND SEASON OF DIVISION I SOCCER In just its second season of Division I soccer, SDSU advanced to the NCAA tournament after knocking off Cal State Fullerton and UCLA in NCAA qualifying matches, both by 2-1 scores in overtime. The Aztecs then tied San Francisco, 2-2, but the Dons advanced on in the tournament by having more corner kicks than San Diego State, a rule that is no longer played by today.

REVIEW

SDSU KNOCKS OFF TWO BAY AREA TEAMS SDSU made it back to the NCAA tournament after finishing its regular season with an impressive 14-3-1 mark. In their first game, the Aztecs avenged an early season loss to California by shutting out the Golden Bears, 4-0, in Berkeley. The squad would then down host San Francisco, 2-1, in overtime. However, the team’s participation in the tourney was later vacated.

THIS IS SDSU

SAN DIEGO STATE MAKES IT TWO STRAIGHT San Diego State proved that 1981 was no fluke, setting a school record with 20 victories en route to its second consecutive NCAA tournament appearance. SDSU won its final eight regular season games and then knocked off Fresno State, 1-0, in the NCAA first round. However, San Francisco eliminated the Aztecs in the next game by a 2-0 score. AZTECS FALL IN NATIONAL TITLE GAME After entering the NCAA tournament as the last seed, San Diego State made a cinderella run through the tourney, defeating St. Louis, SMU (advanced on penalty kicks) and UCLA, all on the road and by 2-1 margins to make it to the NCAA final four. In the final four, SDSU moved past Harvard on penalty kicks before falling to host Clemson, 2-0, in the NCAA title game.

HISTORY

SDSU LOSES HEARTBRAKER TO UCLA IN NCAA FIRST ROUND The Aztecs made their second straight trip to the NCAA tournament after posting a 15-2-4 regular season record. In its second-to-last contest, San Diego State played to a 1-1 overtime tie with UCLA, a team it had knocked off last season to reach the final four. However, the Bruins would take the rematch, 2-1, to eliminate SDSU in the first round of the NCAA tourney. THREE STRAIGHT FOR SAN DIEGO STATE The Aztecs reached their third consecutive NCAA tournament, the only team in program history to do so, after going 14-4-3 in the regular season. SDSU and UCLA did battle once again in the NCAA first round. The game was tied at 1-1 through the overtime periods, but the Bruins came out on top in penalty kicks to avenge their loss to San Diego State earlier in the year.

In its 40-year history, SDSU has gone 9-6-1 (.594) in NCAA tournament play.

AZTECS RETURN TO NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT SDSU returned to national prominence in its first season of Pac-10 play, finishing with a 9-4-6 record, while allowing just nine goals in the regular season. The Aztecs would have to travel to nationally ranked UC Santa Barbara and a hostile crowd. In the end, the Gauchos connected on two late second half goals to eliminate San Diego State, 2-0. SDSU PROVES IT BELONGS WITH A SECOND STRAIGHT TRIP TO THE TOURNAMENT The Aztecs proved the doubters wrong by advancing to the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive season, a feat that hadn’t been done since 1988-89. San Diego State was shipped to UC Santa Barbara for the second straight NCAA tourney (and third time in two years). SDSU jumped out to a 1-0 lead, but fell to the eventual national champions, 2-1.

1987 NATIONAL RUNNER-UPS It was a cinderella run to say the least.

THIS IS SDSU

After losing two of its final four games, the 1987 Aztec men’s soccer team dropped to 16-5 and cautiously waited for a berth into the NCAA tournament. Their wish was granted when they earned the last seed of the 24 teams, their first NCAA bid since 1982.

HISTORY

However, the road would be rough and would include no home games and possible trips across the country and back. No sweat.

RECORDS

SDSU went on to win its next four matches, all come-from-behind victories, to reach the NCAA title game. The Aztecs began their impossible run on Nov. 15 by knocking off 10-time national champion St. Louis, 2-1. On Nov. 21, San Diego State upset No. 5 Southern Methodist after scoring a goal in the waning moments to tie the game and eventually winning on penalty kicks. Next up was No. 9 UCLA on Nov. 29, a team SDSU had lost to, 3-1, just 25 days earlier and was just 1-13-4 all-time against. The Aztecs came out of Westwood with a 2-1 result, sealing the program’s first trip to the NCAA final four. On Dec. 5, San Diego State would continue its cinderella story by eliminating Harvard in penalty kicks to join the 1973 men’s volleyball team as the only Aztec teams to ever make an NCAA final. SDSU had its run come to an end the following day in a 2-0 loss to host Clemson, ironically the tournament’s No. 23 seed.

Aztec All-Americans Pete Goossens, 1969 INTRODUCTION

Goossens became the first All-American in school history and the first ever from Southern California. Goossens, a defender, helped the Aztecs to the Southern California Intercollegiate Soccer Association championship. An all-Southern California and all-Southern Section performer, he backed a defense that allowed just 14 goals (12 from the opposition) in 11 games. The Aztecs defeated UCLA, Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Los Angeles en route to a 9-1-1 record and the program’s first trip to the NCAA tournament. SDSU played three overtime NCAA playoff games, defeating the Bruins and Titans before battling San Francisco to a 2-2 tie in four overtimes.

Alan Kelly, 1976-77 COACHING STAFF

Kelly earned second-team All-America honors in 1976, after leading SDSU to its ninth straight winning season and a 10-5-1 record. A midfielder, Kelly tied for the team lead with seven goals. The Aztecs posted impressive wins over San Francisco State and U.S. International on the way to the championship of the USIU Invitational. In 1977, Kelly became the first two-time All-American in school history when he garnered first-team accolades. Playing in his final season, Kelly recorded nine goals, tied for second most on the team, as SDSU went 13-4-1. The Aztecs once again won the USIU Invitational, as they beat the hosts, 4-2, and Long Beach State, 5-0, in the championship game.

Kevin Crow, 1981-82

REVIEW

Crow helped the 1981 Aztecs (16-3-1) return to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 10 seasons and finish with a school record 16 victories. The second SDSU defender to be named an All-American, Crow anchored a defense that allowed just 18 goals, or 0.90 goals per game, over the entire season. Crow joined Alan Kelly as the Aztecs’ second two-time All-American after he was named to the third team the following season. The 1982 team established a new record with 20 wins, a mark which is still tied with the 1987 national runner-up squad for the most victories in the program’s history. SDSU (20-3-0), which won its first 11 games and made its second straight trip to the NCAA tournament before falling to San Francisco, 2-0, in the second round.

Kyle Whittemore, 1987 THIS IS SDSU

One season after setting a SDSU record that still stands with 50 points on 20 goals and 10 assists, Whittemore struck for 17 goals and contributed five helpers, despite being double-teamed for most of the year. His 39 points led the squad and for his efforts was named to the All-America second team. He helped the Aztecs, the lowest seeded team in the NCAA tournament, all the way to the NCAA championship game before falling to Clemson, 2-0. SDSU would defeat St. Louis (2-1), SMU (2-1, ot/pk) and UCLA (2-1) on the road before taking down undefeated Harvard, 2-1, in penalty kicks, in the semfinals.

HISTORY

Marcelo Balboa, 1988-89

RECORDS

Balboa became the first Aztec first-team All-American since 1977 (Alan Kelly) after leading SDSU to its second straight NCAA tournament in 1988. Balboa, a future National Soccer Hall of Fame member, backed a defense that allowed only 10 goals in 22 games, as SDSU finished 15-3-4. He also scored four goals and added six assists for 14 points. Later on in the year, he was named a U.S. U-20 World Cup team captain. The following season, Balboa was a second-team selection to become the third Aztec two-time honoree. A captain from his sweeper position, Balboa tallied 23 points on eight goals and seven assists in leading SDSU to its third consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament, the only time in school history that has happened. The 1989 Aztecs finished 14-5-3.

Tally Hall, 2005-06 Hall led the nation in 2005 with a 88.9 shot-on-goal percentage and was second with a 0.49 goals against average, both school single-season records. He helped the Aztecs to their first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1989, recording a school-record 12 shutouts, as the SDSU defense gave up 11 goals in 19 games en route to a 9-4-6 mark. In 2006, Hall became SDSU’s fourth two-time All-American after helping the squad to the NCAA tournament for the second straight season. Despite falling to eventual national champion UC Santa Barbara, 2-1, in the NCAA first round, Hall went 9-5-4 with a 1.04 goals against average and six shutouts. He would end his four-year career second on the all-time list with 256 saves.

The year also marked the Aztecs' entry into league play with the creation of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. The MPSF will prove to be one of the strongest soccer conferences in the nation.

RECORDS

1974 Goal-scoring machine Steve Robertson arrived on Montezuma Mesa. He netted 14 goals in 13 games, including at least one tally in nine contests. The only loss in a 10-1-2 season came against CS Fullerton in the Aztecs’ second match.

1981 The Aztecs returned to the NCAA playoffs for the first time in 10 years, compiling a 16-3-1 overall record. SDSU trounced California, 4-0, in the first round of the playoffs. In the second round, the Aztecs again met San Francisco. After regulation and four 15minute overtimes failed to produce a winner, SDSU won on penalty kicks, 21. Following the victory, a player was declared ineligible for the Aztecs, forcing them out of further competition.

1987 With teams keying more and more on Whittemore, freshman Eric Wynalda was a welcome addition to the Aztecs’ scoring punch. As the lowest-seeded team in the NCAA playoffs, SDSU made a storybook run all the way to the NCAA finals. The Aztecs' finish included playoff victories against St. Louis, SMU and UCLA before beating undefeated Harvard in the semifinals. In the national championship game, SDSU lost to Clemson on the Tigers' home field, 2-0. Whittemore had 17 goals to lead the way and Wynalda had 11 goals and 11 assists. Goalkeepers Bryan Finnerty and Felipe Hernandez combined for a school-record 13 shutouts. A key to the Aztec season was the play of Chris Keenan and Gerardo Jimenez, both of whom had transferred to SDSU for their senior years.

HISTORY

1973 The season began with a 12-0 whitewash of Arizona State and a 9-1 victory over Loyola. The team struggled at mid-year but regrouped to win six of its last seven to finish 11-6-3. The schedule included games with international teams from Mexico and Germany.

1980 Holmstedt set the school's singleseason scoring mark, netting 17 goals in 18 games. His 42 points also set a standard for SDSU. The team went on to compile a record of 12-4-2.

1986 Whittemore returned from his injury to break his own point-scoring record, earning a point in 17 different contests. His 20 goals and 10 assists led the team to a 14-3-4 record. Goalkeeper Felipe Hernandez posted a 0.71 goalsagainst average and six shutouts. The season ended on a sour note with a loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the final game, keeping the team out of the NCAA playoffs.

1990 The Aztecs began the season basking in the accomplishments of three former players, Balboa, Wynalda and Chris Sullivan. All represented the United States on the national team in Italy for World Cup 1990. The Aztecs had more players compete for the national team than any university in the United States. On Montezuma Mesa, Patrick Merrell and company recorded an 11-6-3 record, barely missing the NCAA playoffs. The defense was anchored by Dain DeForest, but speedsters Jason French, Bill Demke and Chris Stephens combined with Brian Craft-Negrete and Merrell for 31 goals and 28 assists. Goalkeeper Curtis McAlister recorded an 0.92 GAA.

THIS IS SDSU

1972 After starting the season 1-4, San Diego State went unbeaten in its last six games to boost its season record to 6-4-1, securing its fifth straight winning campaign of the program. ChowanaBandu led the team with nine goals.

1979 The golden era of SDSU soccer begins with the arrival of several outstanding players. Micael Holmstedt, Dida Menders, Vince Bucelli and Kevin Crow all make their initial appearances for the Aztecs. In his final campaign, Fernandez scored 12 goals and had 10 assists, leading the team to a 14-32 mark. For the first time in SDSU soccer history, three players had double figures in goals as Fernandez and Holmstedt had 12 goals each and Menders added 10.

1985 With Whittemore gone for the year with a broken leg, SDSU had trouble scoring. Steve Boardman and Steve Guillot shared the team lead with five goals. Boardman set a single-season record for assists with 12. The team averted its first-ever losing record with a late goal against cross-town rival USD to win, 1-0, in the next-to-last contest of the year to finish 8-8-4.

1989 Continuing to solidify their role as a national contender, the Aztecs appeared in the NCAA playoffs for the third straight year, a first in their storied history. In the playoff game, UCLA defeated the Aztecs 2-1, in a penalty kick shootout. Senior goalkeeper Bryan Finnerty recorded the third best single-season goals-against average (0.66), and became the Aztecs' career leader in GAA (0.69) and shutouts (26.5). Betts led Aztec scorers with 32 points and U.S. National Team members Wynalda and Balboa finished with 24 and 23 points, respectively. SDSU finished the decade with the 15th-best winning percentage (.722) among Division I programs. The Aztecs ended the season 14-5-3.

REVIEW

1971 SDSU posted a 10-3-1 record with the help of Tollerton's 11 goals and Chowana-Bandhu's 10 scores. The Aztecs made their first appearance in the Pacific Coast Athletic Association tounament, losing to San Jose State in the first round, 2-1.

1978 Playing its longest schedule ever, SDSU went 13-7, including a 8-2 mark at home. Fernandez again led the team in scoring with nine goals, while Chris Hull and Norby each scored five times. During a three-game stretch early in the year, Fernandez scored five times to pace three Aztec victories. Gordon Dallas wore the scarlet and black for the first time, notching four goals to go along with eight assists.

1984 Kyle Whittemore arrived on Montezuma Mesa to set single-season scoring and points marks. The Seattle product beat opposing keepers 21 times during the course of the season, tallying 45 points. Eric Drabb was the team's second-leading scorer with six goals and six assists. The team tied the school record set in 1983 for goals in a game with a 13-0 drubbing of CS Bakersfield. Its final record was 14-6.

SDSU continued to establish themselves as one of the premier programs in the nation. Whittemore capped his career as the MVP of the Senior Bowl in St. Louis at Budweiser Soccer Park, leading the West to a 2-0 victory and scoring the game-winning goal.

PLAYERS

1970 Al Limahelu tallied 26 points and Choo Chowana-Bandu scored 12 goals to lead the team. The largest margin of victory in Aztec soccer history came when San Diego State defeated Chapman College, 13-0. The Aztecs outscored opponents 55-9 on their way to an 8-1-1 mark.

1977 Vidal Fernandez burst onto the scene at SDSU, leading the Aztecs to a 13-4-1 record. The future New York Cosmos and San Diego Sockers star tallied 13 goals on the year to lead the team. Kelly and Sainz each had nine tallies. Four-year letterman and future head coach, Chuck Clegg, finished his first year as Logan's assistant coach.

team struggled to a 9-9-4 record. Goal scoring was the problem most of the year, with the exception being a 13-0 win over Loyola Marymount. In the game against the Lions, Jeff Ryder scored three goals. Nineteen different players tallied at least one point during the season.

COACHING STAFF

1969 SDSU defeated CS Los Angeles, CS Fullerton and UCLA on its way to a 9-1-1 season. Jim Tollerton and Oscar Gonzalez shared the goal-scoring leadership with 12 apiece. The Aztecs played three overtime NCAA playoff games, defeating CS Fullerton and UCLA, 2-1, before battling San Francisco to a 2-2 tie in four OTs. The game was decided by which team had taken more corner kicks, making USF the winner.

record. Kelly, Carlos Sainz and Lauri Somersalmi stood out in the Aztecs’ ninth-straight winning season, including victories over San Francisco State and USIU on the way to the championship of the USIU Invitational.

INTRODUCTION

1968 San Diego State's first year of Division I soccer. George Logan was the first head coach and the architect of 148 future wins. The Aztecs defeated UC San Diego, 5-1, in the school's first match. SDSU started the year winning its first four matches as the Aztecs finished with a 6-2 record.

1993 As predicted, the MPSF's strength was evidenced by four teams qualifying for the NCAA tournament. The Aztecs struggled, posting their first losing season in 25 years, going 7-9-1. Injuries again played a major role with nine of the starting 11 sidelined for part of the season. Senior Bill Demke led

COACHING STAFF

INTRODUCTION

1994 The strongest freshman recruiting class in recent history arrived on Montezuma Mesa. The rollercoaster season ended up 10-9, but six freshmen broke into the starting lineup. Senior Willie Franklin's career ended with four goals and three assists. The freshmen gained valuable Division I experience against top-20 teams. Sophomore Aaron Susi led the team with 22 points and began maturing into a top forward. The team recorded 241 shots on goal.

PLAYERS

1995 As a junior, Susi led the Aztecs with 10 goals and 10 assists for a total of 30 points. The Aztecs posted a less-thanstellar record of 6-10-4, for only their second losing season in 27 years. Eleven different players scored for a total of 38 goals. Senior Pablo Nunnally recorded two assists from the defense. The freshman class contributed seven players who put the ball in the net. The year also marked the end of defender Jeff Baxter's outstanding career. The MPSF again proved to be a powerhouse in the ratings.

THIS IS SDSU

REVIEW

1996 Darren and Derek Drago and Mark Rogondino joined the team for their final year of eligibility. Those three, plus transfers Juan Velasco and John Browne, added maturity to the squad. Aztec soccer followed other SDSU sports into the Western Athletic Conference, as did fellow MPSF schools, Air Force, Fresno State, New Mexico, San Jose State, SMU, TCU, Tulsa and UNLV. The WAC certainly rivaled the MPSF in strength. Six freshmen again found playing time and the Aztecs finished 7-10-3.

RECORDS

HISTORY

1997 Coach Clegg was pleased to announce the addition of his first salaried men’s assistant coach, Lev Kirshner. A northern California native, Kirshner played collegiately for Rutgers University. Sophomore goalkeeper Matt Hall came into his own, posting a 1.25 GAA, recording 80 saves and four shutouts. The overall record of 7-8-3 did not reflect the intensity of play as four of the losses were by one goal and the team took three opponents to overtime. Again freshmen made an impact with six consistently in the starting lineup. Senior Raja Hawa led the team in scoring, but 13 different Aztecs scored. SDSU remained somewhat young with only three seniors graduating. 1998 A rebuilding Aztec squad held its own throughout a competitive season, finishing with a record of 8-11-1. Junior David Beltran and Darren Parker shared goal-scoring honors with five apiece, while freshman Mike Bradbury added five goals and four assists in his inaugural campaign at SDSU. Goalie Hall was stellar in the nets, fashioning a 1.42 goals-against average. The Aztecs posted impressive WAC wins

over UNLV and TCU at home and finished the season with a 4-3 overtime loss to 16th-ranked Southern Methodist, a team that went on to the NCAA quarterfinals. 1999 With the creation of the Mountain West Conference, SDSU returned to the MPSF. The young Aztec team showed signs of improvement but finished the season with a 4-15-0 record. Three of the team's wins came in the form of shutouts, including an impressive 6-0 season-opening victory over Concordia. Freshman keeper Brian Barnes was the team's primary starter seeing action in 16-of-19 matches, earning 64 saves. Junior midfielder/forward Milton Economy led the team with four goals and two assists (10 points), including two game-winners. 2000 Assistant coach Kirshner took over the head coaching reins and with it, the job of returning the program to the success it once knew. Junior midfielder Enrique Tovar led the team in goals (4), assists (6) and points (14). The story of the campaign was sophomore goalkeeper Barnes, who finished the year with a MPSF Pacific Divisionleading 90 saves. Combined with 64 saves from his rookie season, his total of 154 saves placed him third on SDSU’s career top-10 list. The team finished the year with a 6-12-1 record, and was 2-4-1 in the MPSF-Pacific Division after an injury-plagued campaign in which seven players underwent surgery. 2001 San Diego State completed one of the program’s most successful seasons in recent years with a 7-9-4 overall mark and a 3-2-2 MPSF record. The Aztecs entered the final weekend of regular season play in contention for their first MPSF title. Sophomore Kevin Sapanli’s earned all-conference and all-tournament honors. He also was a third-team selection on the Verizon Academic All-America team. Seniors Enrique Tovar and Tim Edwards joined Sapanli on the all-conference squad. 2002 After entering the season with great optimism, a rash of injuries to several key returnees turned the year sour. SDSU posted a 4-13-2 overall record, but the young Aztecs did show signs of optimism. The highlight of the year was a 3-2 overtime victory over No. 7 Loyola Marymount. Barnes earned second-team all-MPSF honors after another solid year at goalkeeper, and Ryan Cook was awarded all-MPSF honorable mention plaudits. 2003 The 2003 Aztec squad went against the pundits and posted their first winning season since the 1994 campaign. The year also marked the Aztecs return to the MPSF championships for the second time under fourth-year coach Kirshner. The season started out with a bang as the Aztecs pulled out a 2-1 overtime victory over Oregon State. SDSU would go 6-1-1 through

the month of September before injuries and a lack of depth caught up with the Aztecs, who finished a remarkable 9-83, including a 3-1 win over Sacramento State in the MPSF championships. The showing marked the second appearance in postseason play since 1989 for SDSU. 2004 Coming off a winning season, the Aztecs were excited about the prospects of 2004. Unfortunately, injuries sidelined two starters before the season began and by mid-year, the team was without six starters. Despite finishing with a record of 4-13-2, SDSU ended the campaign on a high note, defeating Sacramento State and UNLV and tying No. 2 New Mexico at home. Throughout the year, the team suffered some close losses, but none closer than its season-opening 1-0 loss to eventual national runner-up UC Santa Barbara. Individually, Heath Creager and Colin Jennings were honored by the MPSF. Creager, a junior forward, was named to the second team, while Jennings, a sophomore midfielder, earned honorable mention accolades. 2005 With its first healthy team in some time and a nationally ranked recruiting class, SDSU finished the season with a 9-4-6 record and its first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1989, where it would fall to UC Santa Barbara, 2-0. In their first season of play in the Pac-10, the Aztecs finished with a respectable record of 2-3-5, with two losses coming in overtime. SDSU began the season with a 1-0 road win over perennial power Rutgers and followed it up with a 0-0 tie to then No. 5 St. John’s. The Aztecs never looked back from there, going unbeaten (6-0-1) over their next seven games. SDSU was led by goalkeeper Tally Hall, who led the nation with an 88.9 shot-on-goal save percentage and was second in the country with a 0.49 goals against average, both school records. Hall’s performance between the posts didn’t go unrecognized as he became the first Aztec All-American since 1989 (Marcelo Balboa). Hall was joined on the all-Pac-10 team by Matt Couch and Kraig Chiles. 2006 The 2006 Aztecs continued where last year’s team left off, advancing to the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive season, a feat they hadn’t done since 1988 and 1989. SDSU finished the season with a 9-6-4 record, including a 5-2-3 record in its second year of Pac-10 play, good enough for sole possession of second place. Tally Hall had a brilliant season between the posts once again, going 9-5-4 with a 1.04 goals against average. He went on to become a M.A.C. Hermann Award semifinalist, an All-American for the second straight season and an allconference performer. Nick Cardenas made an immediate impact, scoring six times en route to being named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. Raul Bautista, Andrew DiCicco, Kraig Chiles, Danny Ortiz and Dennis Sanchez were also honored by the league.

2007 SDSU culminated an up and down season with its second consecutive runner-up finish in the Pac-10. The Aztecs posted an eight-game unbeaten streak midway through the season, which included three straight wins against nationally ranked Pac-10 foes UCLA (1-0), California (3-2) and Stanford (2-0). SDSU finished the season 3-1-2 against ranked teams. However, two key non-conference losses early and another one late ultimately cost the Aztecs their third consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. Still, the squad posted a 8-7-4 record for its third straight winning season. Kraig Chiles earned second-team Top Drawer Soccer honors as well as firstteam all-Pac-10 accolades after leading the squad with 20 points on eight goals and four assists. Nick Cardenas was selected to the NSCAA/adidas allFar West third team and was joined on the all-Pac-10 second team by Evan Toft. Brad Byrns, Khadim Diouf and Jamel Wallace each were named to the all-Pac-10 honorable mention.

2008 The Aztecs battled a tough schedule (nine games against NCAA tournament teams), injuries (41 games missed to predicted starters), too many close losses (three in overtime, seven by one goal) and too many untimely red cards (SDSU played 86:28 of shorthanded soccer, 12:02 two-men short) en route to a 6-9-3 record, their first losing season in their Pac-10 history. Despite the bad luck, San Diego State still went 3-4-3 in the Pac-10 for its third consecutive top-tier finish. Nick Cardenas was named to his third straight NSCAA/adidas all-Far West squad and was joined on the all-Pac10 second-team by Evan Toft and Jamel Wallace. Co-captain Dennis Sanchez led a group of four Aztecs who earned honorable mention honors. He was joined by Matt McManus, Khadim Diouf and Raymundo Reza.

2009 Despite going 3-0-2 against top-15 teams, 2-0-2 versus the top 10, 2-1-3 on the road, and ranking 20th of 204 teams (the highest rating not to get in the tourney) in the final edition of the RPI (released Dec. 14), SDSU was left out of the NCAA tournament. The Aztecs finished the season with a 6-66- record, including a 3-4-3 mark in the Pac-10. Raymundo Reza continued to leave his mark on the program, leading the team in scoring with 16 points on six goals and four assists. Evan Toft added 10 points (four goals, two assists) in just nine games. Nick Cardenas (four goals, one assist) became the first player in the San Diego State’s storied history to be named to four straight all-region teams and just the second to garner the accolade all four seasons (Kyle Whittemore (1984, 1986-88). Cardenas was joined on the all-Pac-10 squad by Raymundo Reza, Khadim Diouf, Steve Beitashour, Daniel Ortega, Evan Toft, Jamel Wallace, Justin Davies, Daniel Steres and freshman Jose Altamirano. Beitashour, Cardenas and Wallace were all drafted by MLS clubs.
