rrone Stadium he huskies J oseph J. Morrone Stadium, with its seating capacity of just under 4,500 and a natural grass playing surface, is one of the finest college soccer facilities in the nation. The natural grass playing surface measures 75 by 120 yards, the maximum dimensions for a collegiate soccer field. The stadium has undergone major improvements over the past several years. This new-look Stadium has been funded by both state monies and by private contributions through the UConn Friends of Soccer support organization. The latest part of the new-look to Morrone Stadium are its visual enhancements which provide recognition of historical team and individual achievements. These enhancements are panels that have been placed in each end zone as well as on the front side of the press box. Prior to the 2010 additions, Morrone Stadium’s last feature added was a full field lighting system, installed right before the 2000 soccer season. The addition of lights to Morrone Stadium was a tremendous boost to the soccer program. The facility is one of the top collegiate sites in the nation and the ability to play matches under the lights means the national-level soccer program has a national-level, state-of-the-art home surface, day and night. In addition, the matches played under the lights create an enjoyable atmosphere which can involve the entire soccer community and generate a positive effect on home game attendance. The enhancements over the years at Morrone Stadium include: a state-of-the-art scoreboard and message center; aluminum bleachers; replacement of the natural grass surface, with new grass and an irrigation and automatic watering system installed; and one of the top press boxes in the country. The fully enclosed and heated aluminum-sided press box measures 120 feet. It includes a 60-foot midsection for working media, rooms for television and home and visiting radio, an enclosed upper camera deck, and special hospitality areas for guests. Additionally, television monitors are positioned throughout the press box for viewing the game action below. On April 11, 1997, the University of Connecticut Board of Trustees approved the naming of the Connecticut Soccer Stadium as the Joseph J. Morrone Stadium. The naming of the stadium enables the Division of Athletics to recognize the significant contributions that Joe Morrone has made to the growth of soccer on all levels, but more specifically at the University of Connecticut. Coach Morrone retired as head coach of men’s soccer at Connecticut following the 1996 season. In 28 years directing the UConn program, Morrone compiled an overall record of 358-178-53, and in 39 years as a collegiate head soccer coach he compiled a 422-199-64 record, ranking him as one of only four collegiate soccer coaches with more than 400 career victories. In 1981, he led Connecticut to the NCAA Division I National Championship.

Len Tsantiris Head Coach 32nd Season Connecticut ‘77 Head Coach Len Tsantiris embarks on his 32nd year as the head coach of the women’s soccer program at Connecticut. Under his leadership, UConn has advanced to 28 NCAA National Tournaments, including 26 straight from 1982-2007. Four of those postseason appearances included visits to the NCAA Championship Game in 1984, 1990, 1997 and 2003. During his tenure, Tsantiris has created a women’s soccer program that has received national attention for the team’s successes on and off the field. In his 31 seasons in charge of the UConn women’s soccer program, Tsantiris, an inductee of the Class of 2012 for AHEPA Hellenic Athletic Hall of Fame, has compiled an outstanding 491-163-48 record and is only the second women’s soccer coach to record over 450 wins. The Huskies struggled in the 2011 campaign posting a 7-8-2 record as it was the first time the squad failed to reach the BIG EAST Tournament with a 4-5-2 conference mark. Under Tsantiris’ direction, Connecticut finished the season 4-2-2 at home at Morrone Stadium, including a thrilling 3-0 victory over No. 20 Boston University. 2010 saw Connecticut reach the NCAA Tournament for the 28th time. The Huskies recorded one of the most momentous victories in BIG EAST history on October 31 when UConn ousted eventual National Champion Notre Dame from the BIG EAST Tournament with a 2-0 victory in South Bend. UConn became the first BIG EAST team to defeat the Irish in 77 games. The 77-game conference winning streak was the longest of its kind in any sport. UConn continued the long history of academic success as well. The Huskies finished the year with the highest GPA of any team at Connecticut. 22 players earned BIG EAST All-Academic Honors while graduate student Annie Yi was named the BIG EAST Scholar Athlete of the Year. In 2009, the Huskies made their return to the NCAA Tournament. UConn finished their regular season with a 10-7-1 record going 9-1-1 at home in Morrone Stadium. Under Tsantiris’ direction, in the first game of the NCAA Tournament, a doubleovertime game winner by Brittany Taylor handed the Huskies the 500th program win and Tsantiris his 474th career victory. Under Tsantiris’ direction in 2008, a young squad returned to the BIG EAST Championship match for the first time since 2005. After starting the season slowly, the team rallied back earning some key road victories which helped the Huskies into the BIG EAST tournament for the 15th time in program history. During the BIG EAST Championship game, the Huskies forced overtime with the nationally ranked No. 1 Notre Dame shutting the Fighting Irish out in regulation, the only team to do so during the 2008 season. The Huskies fell during the overtime period ending their season prior to the NCAA tournament for the first time in the school’s history. The 2007 Huskies advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the first time since 2003. It was their 26th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The team finished with a 14-6-2 overall record, 8-2-1 in the BIG EAST. UConn advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament on penalty kicks after playing to a 0-0 tie with Boston College. They then defeated Wake Forest 1-0 two days later in the second round. The following weekend they went across the country to defeat top seeded Stanford 2-0 in the third round. Traveling again in the quarterfinals, the Huskies led Florida State 2-1 with eight minutes to go before the Seminoles were able to score the tying goal. Florida State then won the game with a goal in the second overtime. During the course of the regular season, UConn shutout their opponents 11 times and allowed only 14 goals, the fewest they’ve allowed since giving up 12 in 1998. The 2006 Huskies earned a berth in their 25th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance after finishing the season with an 11-7-4 overall record, 7-3-1 in the BIG EAST. UConn reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament, posting a 1-1 tie against top-seeded Texas. The Longhorns, however, advanced to the next round after winning in penalty kicks. In an early season tournament, the Huskies nearly defeated eventual national champion North Carolina. In that game, UConn took a 2-0 lead into halftime, handing the Tar Heels their first two-goal halftime

deficit since October 18, 1999. Later in the year, UConn played to a 0-0 draw with national runner-up Notre Dame at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium.

As Coach Tsantiris sat in my living room and talked with my family and me, there was something about him that let me know he really cared about me and wanted what was best for me. After making my decision to attend UConn, I saw nothing less than that. Growing up, I played in the National Pool with many talented players who also went to great programs, many of whom did not play right away. Coach Tsantiris gave me a chance and constantly showed his confidence in me. That is why I was able to be successful and enjoy playing in college. Playing at UConn was the best experience I have had and it would not have been possible without the coaches. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and the relationships I have gained, which will last a lifetime.”

“I chose UConn because I wanted to win a national championship. For me it was about finding the right fit of coaching with the right group of players, and UConn has proven to have both. You can pull all the stats and the records and the accomplishments of other top teams, but when the decision needed to be made it wasn’t about numbers at all. The decision for me was about the atmosphere, the players and the support which gave me a sense of home for the next four years. I wanted to have a team that I felt would be there battling next to me on the field, and when it was all said and done, still be at my side as we move on from this journey. UConn has given me that and more.”

“There are several different reasons why I chose UConn. I love the school itself, the size of it, how the campus is set up and, of course, the academic and soccer aspects - the coaches, the players, the facilities, everything! When I made my recruiting trip, I stayed with four older players in the apartments, saw the team play two games and practice and saw the men’s team play. I loved watching them play and loved how they played. But most importantly, I felt so comfortable that I already felt a part of everything. I had a feeling that this was going to be the right place for me. After the recruiting trip was over and I left for home, as soon as we got in the car, I told my parents that this is where I was going. I canceled my other recruiting trips and I chose UConn.”

- Brittany Taylor, (2005-2009)

Wendy Logan

“My desire to play at the highest level of collegiate competition is what attracted me to UConn. Their soccer program’s high national ranking was appealing, but even more impressive was the strong tradition and the high level of expectation. I was positive that my talents would be maximized through the competition from my teammates, the strength of the opponents, and the guidance of Coach Tsantiris. Playing for a national championship was a thrill of a lifetime.”

- Wendy Logan (1988-1991)

“I chose UConn because of the strength and intensity of the girls on the soccer team. My teammates and coaches have never allowed me to stop becoming the best version of myself; as a person, athlete, or player. And I don’t think they’ll ever stop pushing me to set a higher bar for myself in soccer or life. The most important thing I have learned at UConn is that there are many limits on what you can do is in your head. I am extremely grateful for what my teammates and coaches have taught me the past few years at UConn.”

“Playing soccer at UConn was one of the best decisions that I ever made in my life. I knew going in how competitive it would be and what an honor it would be. What I didn’t know back then was that I was making life long friends.”

Connecticut ended the 2011 campaign 7-8-2 overall record and fell short of a postseason berth for the first time in program history. The Huskies look to return to postseason action as they head into the 2012 season with eight returning starters and 14 promising newcomers. FORWARDS The Huskies will turn to senior Danielle Schulmann who had a breakout junior year where she led the UConn offense with 15 points on seven goals and one assist. The right-footed striker emerged as the top Husky after sitting out the first two games due to injury. The Saddle River, N.J. native netted her first Husky goal on September 2 in a 2-1 road upset over undefeated No. 15 Wake Forest. Schulmann didn’t stop there, adding six more goals on the season and scoring three game-winning goals. Additionally, sophomores Lindsey Watkins (Litchfield, Conn.) and Mika Bussey (Brighton, Mich.) both add depth for the Huskies. With the loss of mainstay Jessica Shufelt in the front line, the Huskies have open spots to fill and will look to four newcomers to help fill the gap. With a year of practice under her belt, left-footed attacker and redshirt freshman Andrea Plucenik (Brooklyn, Conn.) offers a great opportunity to add speed to the front line and will compete for a starting role at the forward position. Also vying for a starting slot are true freshmen Stephanie Ribeiro (Pawtocket, R.I.), Liana Hinds (Hartford, Conn.) and Samantha McGuire (Fishkill, N.Y.).

#7 Danielle Schulmann

“We have a lot of young new talent up front in addition to our leading scorer from last year. I am excited to see who emerges at the top and who will put some goals in the back of the net for us this year,” stated Head Coach Len Tsantiris. MIDFIELD

#10 Jennifer skogerboe 20

Connecticut’s midfield looks to be the strongest position entering the 2012 season as they have four returning stars and two newcomers to fill the spots as necessary. “This year we have a lot of options in our midfield and a lot of depth. This will allow us to play the fast paced game we want to play,” Tsantiris said. Senior Linda Ruutu (Espoo, Finland), juniors Devin Prendergast (Babylon, N.Y.) and Jennifer Skogerboe (Leesburg, Va.), and sophomore Riley Houle (Columbia, Conn.) bring a wealth of experience to the midfield for the Huskies. In 2011, Prendergast was second on the team with nine points on four goals and one assist. Prendergast is an expansive threat for UConn specializing in the long ball as she scored her four goals from a distance, including three from thirty yards out. Houle had a breakout freshman campaign that earned her a spot on the All-BIG EAST Rookie and Third Teams after she notched seven points on three goals and an assist.

Houle adds a spark to the Husky lineup with the ability to easily cover the entire field and help out in all facets of the game. Ruutu and Skogerboe bring a veteran presence to the midfield. Ruutu netted two goals and dished out two assists to tally six points in 2011, while Skogerboe had one assist while playing nearly every minute of 2011 action. Other backups in the middle will be freshmen Ruby Fee (Nantucket, Mass.) and Miranda Tarpey (Poughouag, N.Y.) DEFENSE The UConn defense offers the greatest veteran presence for the Huskies with seniors Karen Gurnon (Tolland, Conn.) and Danielle Dakin (Wilbraham, Mass.) bookending the backline. Gurnon, a fifth-year senior, played every game for the Huskies in 2011 and helped the squad record five shutouts on the season. Dakin didn’t see the bench once her junior campaign as she was on the field all 1,572 minutes of action. She played a vital role in holding opponents to a .451 shot on goal percentage and .094 shot percentage. “With the majority of our veteran players back this year we will have great leadership and stability for our defense,” Tsantiris finished.

#14 karen gurnon

The UConn coaching staff is looking for redshirt freshman Gabriella Cuevas( Wayne, N.J.) to return to the field and have a huge impact. Cuevas, an ESPN Rise First Team All-American, was projected to be a great asset to the Husky back four in 2011 but suffered a season-ending injury just seven minutes into the season. The Huskies have four experienced student-athletes to utilize as potential starters or veteran subs with senior Georgina Giddings (Feltham, England), senior Michelle Baj (South Windsor, Conn.), sophomore Gabrielle Charno (Seaford, N.Y.) and sophomore Gianna Roma (Foxboro, Mass.). These four defenders add a wealth of depth and all look to have significant playing time in 2012. Connecticut will also have defensive reserves in Brittany Silva (Dracut, Mass.) and Krystina Jackson (Windsor, Conn.). GOALKEEPERS

#2 Danielle dakin

With the graduation of three-year starter Jessica Dulski the Huskies will search to find a new mainstay to keep watch over the net. Junior Leigh-Ann Jaggon (Windsor, Conn.) is the only returning Husky that will contend for the starting position. She is joined by three freshmen, Monica Dahlgren (Danbury, Conn.), Jessica Montrose (Lancashire, England) and Allison Saucier (Rocky Hill, Conn.), who will join the race to vie for the open spot on the starting roster.

The University of Connecticut women’s soccer program ended the 2011 campaign with a 7-8-2 overall mark and went 4-2-2 in the BIG EAST under the guidance of head coach Len Tsantiris. The Huskies fell short of a postseason berth, not reaching the BIG EAST Tournament for the first time since 1993, the first year of BIG EAST Tournament play. UConn began the regular season at home splitting the first two contests as they prepared to hit the pavement for a tough roadopening weekend at the Wake Forest Nike Challenge where the Huskies were slated to face two nationally ranked opponents. The Huskies shocked the hosting No. 15 Deacons with a 2-1 victory in front of Wake Forest’s 2,000 home crowd when midfielder Devin Prendergast (Babylon, N.Y.) hit a rocket from thirty yards out to notch the game winner with seven minutes remaining in regulation. Senior keeper Jessica Dulski (Pittsford, N.Y.) had her best performance of the season tacking a career-high 11 saves on the night and allowing only one goal. Connecticut fell to 2-2 when they wrapped up the Wake Forest Nike Challenge on Sunday, Sept. 4, with a 1-0 loss to No. 25 Virginia Tech.

Senior Jessica Dulski ended her career with 255 career saves which ranks third in UConn’s all-time record book.

The Husky calendar remained daunting looking forward to their return home when they welcomed No. 20 Boston University on September 9. Once again the squad pulled together to defeat a second nationally ranked opponent posting a 3-0 shutout over the Terriers. Dulski recorded her second shutout of the season en route to UConn snapping Boston’s five-game win streak and handing the Terriers their first loss of the year. Four Huskies tallied points in the matchup with Danielle Schulmann (Saddle River, N.J.), Prendergast and Jessica Shufelt (Rochester, N.Y.) finding the back of the net.

Inconsistency continued to haunt UConn as the 2011 season carried on. Coming off three consecutive contests against ranked opponents where the Huskies showed great poise, Connecticut fell to Harvard, 2-1, on the road despite outshooting the Crimson 11-8. Returning to Morrone Stadium to open conference action the Huskies faced off against Syracuse on September 15 and improved to 4-3-0 with a 1-0 victory over the Orange. The Huskies rallied behind their two leaders in Schulmann, who led the team with 15 points on seven goals and an assist on the season, and Dulski to tally the win. Dulski notched her third shutout after stopping three shots on goal, while Schulmann hit her third goal of the season. After opening the 2010 season with five straight overtime battles and seven total (2-2-3), the Huskies did not fight an OT clash until their eighth match when they dropped a 1-0 (OT) decision at St. John’s on September 18. It was the first of three consecutive overtime contests as UConn went on to host back-to-back BIG EAST double overtime draws against Louisville and Cincinnati. Following the three OT games, the Huskies were 4-4-2 and 1-1-2 in the BIG EAST. Connecticut traveled to the Midwest for a pair of tough matchups as they began their journey at defending National Champion Notre Dame for a game under the lights in South Bend which was aired on ESPNU. The Huskies were shutout by the Fighting Irish, 3-0. The team moved north to the windy city where they defeated DePaul, 2-1, to run their all-time win mark over the Blue Demons to 7-0-0. Schulmann lifted the Huskies with two goals as Prendergast and defender Danielle Dakin (Wilbraham, Mass.) each had an assist. Dakin,

The four-game road trip moved south the following week when the Huskies registered their fourth shutout of the season with a 1-0 victory over conference foe South Florida on October 7. Dulski’s nine saves against the Bulls allowed her to cement her name in the UConn record book moving into third place for all-time career saves. Dulski concluded her four-year stint with 255 saves. The Huskies ended the road trip with a 3-0 loss to No. 9 Marquette. Arriving back in Storrs for an October 14 game against Pitt, the Huskies were welcomed home by the largest home crowd of 2011 of 1,807 fans. Connecticut had the 20th highest attendance DI home attendance mark with an average of 1,073 per game. The Huskies treated the gatherers to a 1-0 win over the Panthers as Dulski registered five saves and Linda Ruutu (Espoo, Finland) scored the lone goal. It would be UConn’s last win of the season with West Virginia beating Connecticut 2-1 at home and the Huskies dropping a 2-1 decision at Providence. Connecticut controlled their postseason hopes, win on the road at Providence and advance or lose and go home. Traveling north to Providence with a 7-7-2 (4-4-2 BE) record and owning a dominant 27-1-1 all-time mark over the Friars the Huskies looked poised to stamp their ticket to the BIG EAST Tournament. However, PC forward Laura DiClemente would squash all chances of that scoring twice in the last ten minutes of regulation to end the game in Providence’s favor, 2-1. Her first goal tied the game at 1-1 on a foul kick at 80:59 before she connected on a ball which ricocheted from the post off of a corner kick with only 38 seconds remaining in regulation. The winning goal lifted the Friars to a 2-1 win over the Huskies. UConn had two Huskies honored by the BIG EAST with Schulmann being named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team and Riley Houle (Columbia, Conn.) being honored as a member of the All-BIG EAST Rookie Team and All-BIG EAST Third Team. Houle, a center midfielder, had a breakout freshman season being third on the team with seven points on three goals and an assist. Additionally, Dulski, Houle, Prendergast and Schulmann all were selected to the 2011 NEWISA All-New England Second Team.

Celebrating 30 Years of UConn Women’s Soccer During the weekend of September 12-14, 2008, the University of Connecticut women’s soccer team celebrated its 30th anniversary as a varsity program. The celebration took place during the weekend of the 17th annual UConn Classic featuring three top-25 programs in the country as No. 1 UCLA, No. 11 Penn State, No.25 and Brown all competed. The weekend kicked off at the UConn vs. Virginia football game at Rentschler Field on Saturday, September 13. Prior to the game, over 80 alumnae and their families gathered at a pre-game tailgate to reunite with past teammates and to meet the 2008 team and current UConn staff and administrators. During halftime of the football game, all former UConn women soccer players in attendance were honored in front of a crowd of 40,000. Head Coach Len Tsantiris, a 1977 UConn graduate and coach of the Huskies for the past 28 years, was recognized with a 30th Anniversary poster that included pictures of every team in the history of the program. Also during the halftime ceremony, four standout former players were honored for their significant contributions to the program. Sara Whalen, Felice Duffy and Moira and Tara Buckley each received a commemorative bowl to honor their excellence in a Husky uniform. The weekend celebration continued on Sunday, September 14 as UConn hosted a brunch at the Nathan Hale Inn. The brunch included memorable speeches from Director of Athletics Jeffrey Hathaway, Head Coach Len Tsantiris and three former Huskies. Melissa Morrone Taintor, Jill Gelfenbien Laufer and Meghan Schnur each recounted stories from their days as a Husky. The weekend culminated at the UConn vs. Penn State soccer game, with recognition of all alumni in attendance during halftime of the game. Overall, the weekend celebration was an amazing tribute to the women’s soccer program and was enjoyed by all.

UConn Retires Two Numbers In the 30-year history of the Connecticut women’s soccer program, Tara Buckley (right) was the first women’s soccer player to have her number retired. Tara Buckley’s number 5 jersey was retired after her stellar four-year career at UConn ended in 1983. Buckley, who played with sister Moira, has the distinction of being the only UConn women’s soccer fourtime All-America selection. Sara Whalen (left) is the only other Husky to have her jersey retired.

Sara Whalen • 1997 HONDA AWARD WINNER

• 1997 NSCAA NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

In 1997, University of Connecticut three-time women’s soccer All-American Sara Whalen was named the Women’s Soccer National Player of the Year by the Honda Awards Program and was selected as the 1997 National Soccer Coaches Association National Player of the Year. Whalen was one of 11 finalists for the Honda Cup Broderick Trophy awarded to the female collegiate Athlete of the Year. Whalen led the 1997 UConn women’s soccer team to a single-season school record 23 wins and a spot in the NCAA Division I National Championship game. Connecticut concluded the 1997 season with an overall record of 23-4. The National Player of the Year honor for Whalen, as awarded by Honda, marked the first time a UConn women’s soccer star had received the award. Whalen, who hails from Greenlawn, N.Y., led Connecticut with 64 points (21 goals, 22 assists) on the year, second best in the nation. Her 22 assists also ranked second in the country for that category. Early in the 1997 season, Whalen made the transition from her more traditional post in the UConn defense (where she was selected a two-time First-Team All-American at back) to a new post in the UConn offense as a forward. The move paid dividends for Connecticut as Whalen had both goals in UConn’s 2-1 National Semifinal upset win over previously unbeaten Notre Dame, advancing UConn to the National Championship game. Connecticut fell to North Carolina 2-0 in the NCAA Championship game. In 1997, Whalen was tabbed First Team All-American as a forward, marking the third consecutive season she was a First-Team All-America selection. Among her accomplishments in 1997, Whalen was named Soccer America Magazine’s National Player of the Year, the Connecticut Sportswriters’ Alliance Female Athlete of the Year, a First-Team All-BIG EAST Selection, a First Team All-New England selection, Missouri Athletic Club National Player of the Year finalist, Hermann Award National Player of the Year finalist, Soccer Digest Magazine’s “Best collegiate soccer player in America” and USA Today’s “Most Versatile Player”.

In the 2000 season, Jen Carlson moved up to second on the all-time list with 153 points. One of UConn’s original stars, Moira Buckley, set the bar high during her career, collecting 166 points from 1980 to 1983. She has held the record for nearly 30 years

The Huskies and the U.S. National Team Throughout the years, the University of Connecticut women’s soccer program has established itself as one of the premier programs in the country. In addition to the postseason appearances and perennial player accolades, several Huskies throughout the years have participated on the highest level of women’s soccer competition with the U.S. National Teams. These players have traveled internationally and across the United States where they have exhibited their skills and talents. Sara Whalen, a 1997 UConn graduate, helped the U.S. Women’s National Team to take home the 1999 World Cup Championship title and the Silver Medal in the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Former Husky three-time All-American forward Mary-Frances Monroe has also made several national team appearances. Most recently, midfielder Meghan Schnur played with the U-19 US Team that competed in the FIFA World Championship in 2004. Additionally, Kristen Graczyk was called in three times in 2005 to participate in the Under-21 National Team camp. During the summer of 2009, Brittany Taylor was called up to play for the National Team, while Elizabeth Eng participated on the youth National Squad.

Foreign Tours In August of 1992, Len Tsantiris added a new dimension to Connecticut women’s soccer by bringing the team on an international tour of Denmark. Since 1992, the program has had the privilege of traveling to different parts of the world three additional times. The NCAA rule limits a foreign tour to once every four years, which allows Coach Tsantiris to bring each class once. He believes that it is an integral part of the education that his players receive during their four years at UConn: “Not only can we prepare for the regular season and play against some of the best women’s teams in the world, but our players have the opportunity to learn about different cultures, see how the game is appreciated in other countries, and experience parts of the world that they may never see again.” The foreign tour typically commences two days into preseason and lasts between 10 and 14 days. Players report to UConn in early August, complete compliance certification and fitness testing before the trip and then return to campus several days before classes begin. The following is a summary of the past four trips that Coach Tsantiris and his teams have taken.

1992: DENMARK In 1992, Coach Tsantiris made history and ventured into his first international tour. The team played a challenging sixgame schedule against top Division I and II clubs which included national team players from Denmark, Australia and Finland. The team finished the trip 3-1-2. Coach Tsantiris was very pleased with the outcome of the trip, “I was excited to expose the team to international soccer,” said Tsantiris. “We chose Denmark because the women’s club leagues there play some of the best women’s soccer in the world. They play a thinking kind of game.”

1996: DENMARK AND NORWAY The success and benefits of the program’s first trip to Denmark encouraged Coach Tsantiris and his team to return to the Scandinavian countries four years later. Accompanied by many friends and family of the women’s soccer team, the Huskies began their Scandinavian tour in Copenhagen, Denmark. Highlights of the trip included attendance at a professional game, a scenic ferry ride from Denmark to Norway that included sights of the Oslo Fjord, and sightseeing in Copenhagen and Oslo. On the field, the Huskies improved on their international record from 1992 and came away from the trip with a 4-1 record. The Huskies beat Vejle (4-1), the No. 2 ranked women’s soccer professional club team in Denmark’s first division, along with Mejrup (2-1) and FFI (3-1). The team’s only loss came to a very experienced and talented Fortuna squad, the #1 ranked club team in Europe at the time. Though the Huskies lost this game, they quickly identified areas that needed improvement for the regular season by gaining tremendous experience. Consequently, UConn challenged for a national championship the following year. In addition, a relationship between UConn and Fortuna extended into a return trip from Fortuna to Morrone Stadium on the UConn campus for an exhibition game on September 10, 1998.

2000: GREECE AND ITALY In 2000, Coach Tsantiris decided that it was time to take the team to his homeland. He is originally from a small island in Greece, but the team did not visit his island. They spent time in Athens, Leptokaria Pieria and Thessaloniki. During a two week tour of Greece and Italy, the Huskies played eight games, winning all eight and were crowned champions of the 3rd AEGEAN Olympus Cup. Coach Tsantiris valued the opportunity to go overseas and reflected on the importance of the trip shortly before leaving, “We are going to Greece and Italy to play games. We will play four in each country in order to gain competitive game experience that you can’t get from practicing. It will be very valuable. This experience will help us next year and the year after and will benefit all of our classes.” Sightseeing on this trip included Mt. Olympus, the ancient site of Dion, the ancient castle of Platamon, the Acropolis, and the Parthenon. After 7 days in Greece, the team traveled to Italy and spent time in Udine, Venice and Rome. With excellent food and amazing sites, the trip proved to be an invaluable experience for the team as they developed a more possession style of play and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinal, losing to the eventual National Champions. As coach Tsantiris foresaw, three years later the team played in the national championship game.

2004: BRAZIL The men’s Brazilian national team has seen dominance with the likes of Pele, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, and the women’s national team has emerged over the past seven years as a World Cup and Olympic contender. On the field, the Brazilians display technical superiority, creativity and a confidence in their abilities to which most players aspire. Believing that his players would learn from and pick up some of Brazil’s savvy play, Coach Tsantiris decided that a trip to South America would be a new and exciting opportunity for the program. A 12-day tour of Rio de Janeiro, Buzios and Teresopolis proved to be an amazing experience for the group. “Everyday we were doing something. A lot of good things came out of it and it was a very educational experience for everyone. The kids were able to experience a different culture and create camaraderie with one another. And at the same time, we were in the richest soccer country in the world. It gave us an opportunity to play against a totally different level of competition” said Tsantiris. The highlights of the trip included attendance at two professional games at Maracana Stadium, including a game in which former World Cup Champion Romario played. The team visited the Brazilian Soccer Hall of Fame within the Maracana, played beach soccer games against local players, visited the Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer tourist spots and practiced and played at the Brazilian National Training Center in Teresopolis.

THE

LONG ISLAND CONNECTION

In his 32-year history with Connecticut women’s soccer, Len Tsantiris has had 16 natives of New York’s Long Island play for the Huskies. Not only have these 16 competed as members of the team, they have each had a major impact on the program. Twelve have earned postseason honors and six of the Long Island products have been named All-Americans. All-Americans hailing from Long Island include three-time All-American Sara Whalen and Mary-Frances Monroe, former assistant coach and 1991, 1992, and 1993 All-American Karen Ferguson, 1991 All-American Cathy Cambria, 1988 and 1990 All-American Beth Grecco, and 1987, 1988, and 1989 All-American Kim Prutting. The Huskies had their seventh different Long Island athlete named All-American in 2007 when Brittany Taylor earned the honor. The Long Island tradition continued in 2008 with the addition of Michelle Reynolds and Heather Kasper and again in 2010 when Devin Prendergast joined the Huskies.

Gavin Potter CPIA Phone: (860) 486-6481 Fax: (860) 486-3441 Gavin.Potter@UConn.edu The University of Connecticut’s Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes (CPIA) was established in 1986 to provide comprehensive support to all UConn student-athletes. CPIA’s staff includes nine full time counselors, a learning specialist, three graduate assistants and an extensive complement of tutors. The program boasts a large computerized writing lab with electronic access to the reference tools of the Homer Babbidge Library. Individual tutors in all subjects are readily available to student-athletes upon their request. A CPIA counselor is assigned to each intercollegiate team. He or she monitors student-athlete academic performance; provides academic, career, and personal counseling while also making appropriate referrals to other University support programs including Career Services, Study Abroad, and discipline-specific advising; facilitates, in consort with faculty and staff advisors, registration in courses that accommodate practice times while optimizing progress toward a degree; coordinates tutor requests and assignment; assists in the development of learning and time management skills; and ensures individual student-athlete compliance with NCAA satisfactory academic progress rules. The women’s soccer program tallied the highest GPA for all UConn athletic programs in both the 2011 fall and 2012 spring semesters with marks of 3.37 and 3.39, respectively. Helping the Huskies earn the highest academic standing among all UConn teams was Cory Bildstein (4.0), Kaichie Ho (4.0), Georgie Giddings (3.88), Riley Houle (3.93), Julie Hubbard (3.87), Sam Kelly (3.925), Hillary Lackman (3.86), Linda Ruutu (3.94) and Courtney Wilkinson-Maitland (3.81) who all recorded perfect or near perfect GPAs in the fall semester. Bildstein, Houle, Hubbard, Lackman, Ruutu and Wilkinson-Maitland also repeated their efforts in the spring and were joined by Michelle Baj and Danielle Dakin. Following a stellar senior campaign on and off the field, Jessica Dulski was tabbed the 2012 CPIA Scholar Athlete of the year for women’s soccer. As a team, the Huskies were honored as a National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Academic Team. UConn had twenty student-athletes named to the 2012 BIG EAST All-Academic team. The UConn women’s soccer coaches and team members take great pride in the team’s academic, service, and leadership accomplishments. The team completed an academic Triple Crown of sorts in 2009-2010. First, they were recognized for academic excellence by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Second, they were recognized during the spring 2010 semester by the University as UConn’s top academic team, boasting a 3.26 spring 2009-fall 2009 cumulative team grade point average (the team has gone on to post a remarkable 3.44 team GPA for the spring 2010 semester). And third, the team was recognized by the NCAA in its Public Recognition Program as being in the top 10% among women’s soccer teams nationally with respect to Academic Progress Rate (APR). Indeed, fifteen members of the team achieved the Dean’s List in their school or college last year, the highest number of Dean’s List achievers for the team since its academic heyday in the mid-1990’s. Leading the team this past year with perfect 4.0 spring semester GPA’s were seniors Annie Yi and Lauren Ebert. Brittany Taylor, Corey Bildstein and Jessica Shufelt followed closely in the spring semester with near perfect 3.93, 3.93 and 3.88 GPAs, respectively. Joining these five students in averaging at or above 3.5 over the full academic year were Melissa Busgue, Danielle Dakin, Becky Gundling, Karen Gurnon, Sam Kelley, Hillary Lackman, Kacey Richards, Linda Ruutu, and Courtney WilkinsonMaitland. Annie Yi, awarded the BIG EAST Scholar Athlete Award, received the team’s individual Scholar-Athlete Award, recognizing sustained academic excellence, at the team’s annual banquet. She was accepted into UConn’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program last spring and completed her initial coursework in the program this summer with perfect grades. UConn women’s soccer members have a long tradition of garnering academic, leadership, service, and holistic honors within and outside the athletics realm. Shannon Algoe, Karen Gurnon, and Annie Yi were named New England Scholars for having achieved consecutive 3.7 or better semesters in the 2009 calendar year. With regard to service, Courtney Wilkinson-Maitland, Meghan Cunningham, and Alexis Garufi all serve as teacher/facilitators on the Enrichment Team, teaching the Personal Growth for Student-Athletes CPIA Kinsman Award winners freshmen year experience course and (Women’s Soccer Members) maintaining the distinction of being one 2007....................................

Less than a year ago, UConn’s School of Law announced that Kate Foley, UConn’s 2002 women’s soccer Academic All-American, finished first in her law school class. Foley, who led the team in minutes played as a senior, previously completed UConn’s Pharm.D. program in 2006. She is now with the prestigious Boston law firm Ropes & Gray. Meanwhile, 2007 women’s soccer graduate Courtney Sands made the Law Review last year at New England School of Law. Also In recent years UConn’s Neag School has honored Brittany Tegeler, Kathleen Frank, Lani Fortier, and Kristen Gracyk as the top student in their Kinesiology Department’s academic field. Notably, UConn’s Kinesiology program is ranked #1 ranked in the nation. Further, UConn women’s soccer players have captured 11 of the 19 Kinsman Awards since that prestigious award was established. The Kinsman Award is CPIA’s highest award, presented annually to one female and one male from among all seniors in UConn’s 24 varsity sports.

Huskies in the Community Balancing athletics with academics is undoubtedly one of the most time consuming and challenging experiences a studentathlete will ever encounter. Despite the rigorous demands associated with learning in the classroom and competing at the Division I level, the UConn women’s soccer team always finds time to give back to the community.

In the past, many members of the team traveled to Mansfield Middle School to spend time in classrooms teaching children life lessons that are necessary to be successful both on and off the field. The student-athletes stressed the importance of teamwork and cooperation in the classroom, on the soccer field and in everyday life.
