rone 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 33rd Season Connecticut ‘77

Head coach Len Tsantiris embarks on his 33rd year as the head coach of the women’s soccer program at Connecticut. In 2012, Tsantiris became only the second coach in collegiate women’s soccer to reach the illustrious milestone of 500 career victories. 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 32 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 500-171-50 record. In 2012, Tsantiris led the Huskies to a 9-8-2 record and guided the squad to their eighth appearance in the BIG EAST Quarterfinal in the past 10 years. UConn went 4-5-1 in conference action in the team’s final year in the BIG EAST, including a 3-1 win over Rutgers which clinched a trip to the quarters and earned Tsantiris his 500th win. 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 2005, the Huskies advanced to their 24th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance and earned a BIG EAST divisional regular season championship. The team held a 10-game unbeaten streak from Sept. 9 through Oct. 9 and posted a 15-5-2 overall record. In BIG EAST play, the Huskies finished 10-1. The 2004 Huskies had a remarkable run through the season and finished with an 18-7-1 overall record. UConn maintained a nine-game winning streak, a sevengame shutout streak in the middle of the season and captured their second BIG EAST Tournament Championship by beating Notre Dame. The Huskies advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament before being knocked out by Notre Dame, who went on to win the 2004 National Championship. In 2003, UConn finished the season with an impressive 15-6-3 overall record. They won the Northern Division BIG EAST title and advanced to the NCAA tournament, fighting their way into the finals of the College Cup tournament. In the first two rounds, the Huskies faced local rivals Boston University and Central Connecticut. In the third round, the Huskies dominated Michigan with a 5-0 victory to advance to the quarterfinals against BYU. After beating the Cougars, 3-1, the Huskies went on to defeat Florida State 2-0 in the semifinals to advance to their fourth NCAA title

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.

Alumni on UConn...

“For me, the decision to attend UConn was an easy one. After visiting many different schools and meeting several coaches, it became clear to me that the coaches at UConn were special. 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.”

“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.”

“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. 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.”

- Jessica Dulski, 2008-2011 Jess D ulski

Connecticut ended its 2012 season at 9-8-1, reaching the Quarterfinals of the BIG EAST Championship before falling to No. 16 Marquette, 4-1. The Huskies look poised for a big run in 2013 as they head into the season with 20 returning letterwinners and 10 talented newcomers. Forwards With the loss of Danielle Schulmann, the team’s leading scorer, the Huskies will turn to an influx of youth to lead the offense. Redshirt sophomore Andrea Plucenik burst onto the scene last season, tallying 15 points on five goals and five assists, and playing in all 19 games for Connecticut. The 5-5 Brooklyn, Conn. native connected for four goals in conference play and registered a hat trick in a 5-1 win against St. John’s on September 16th. UConn will also turn to sophomores Samantha McGuire (Fishkill, N.Y.) and Stephanie Ribeiro (Pawtucket, R.I), as well as junior Riley Houle (Columbia, Conn.), to carry the load on offense. McGuire started in 15 games last season and registered nine points on four goals and one assist. Ribeiro intrigued the coaches last fall, scoring three goals and earning three assists in limited action. Houle enters her junior year primed for another stellar season, as she led all offensive players with a .591 shot-on-goal percentage last season.

#6 Andrea Plucenik Also vying for playing time are sophomores Allison Gallo (Tolland Conn.) and Liana Hinds (Hartford, Conn.), and freshmen Alexa Kenney (Suffield, Conn.), Caroline Massey (Guilford, Conn)., and Faith McCarthy (Windsor, Conn.) “The strength of our attacking personnel should be in both the individual qualities of the players and how they complement each other, but also in the relative depth of the group,” stated head coach Len Tsantiris. Midfield Connecticut’s midfield is made up of a group of versatile players and is anchored by a strong veteran presence. Senior Jennifer Skogerboe (Leesburg, Va.) has been a mainstay in the Husky lineup since her freshman year in 2010, making 50 starts in 51 appearances. The 5-6 right-footed player led all midfielders with six goals and one assist last season. Also returning is senior Devin Prendergast who created matchup problems for opponents last season because of her ability to score from distance.

#10 Jennifer Skogerboe

The Huskies will be aided by the return of redshirt junior Julie Hubbard, who missed all of last season due to injury. Hubbard, who scored a goal and dished out an assist in five games in 2011, provides the Huskies with a dual threat option, as she possesses quick feet and displays good instincts on defense. With the departure of Linda Ruutu, playing time is opened up for returners Ruby Fee (Nantucket, Mass.), Miranda Tarpey (Poughquag, N.Y.), Brianna Butler (Rock Tavern, N.Y.), and Lindsey Watkins (Litchfield, Conn.). Watkins, who played in three

games last season, spent time this spring learning to master the midfield position, but also has experience as an attacker which will give Tsantiris a chance to expose slower defenses. The new Husky midfielders, Natalie Krygier (Novi, Mich.) and Molly Warren (Warwick, N.Y.) should benefit from the veteran core and figure to earn important minutes this season in the early part of the fall. “The position is unique in that there are many very well-rounded players that are capable of excelling at multiple positions, and many players that have played multiple positions in their careers here already,” said Tsantiris. “This should allow us to play the type of possessionbased, attacking soccer that UConn is known for.” Defense The UConn defense will be faced with the tall task of replacing graduated seniors Karen Gurnon and Danielle Dakin this season, but the coaching staff feels the new crop of freshmen could quickly make their impact felt. Connecticut limited opponents to 37 goals on defense last season, including just 92 total shots in the first half of games in 2012. The Connecticut back line will be led by juniors Gabrielle Charno (Seaford, N.Y.) and Gianna Roma (Foxboro, Mass.). Charno started #50 Gabrielle Charno all 19 games for the Huskies, registering 1,724 minutes while Roma started in 18 contests, racking up 1,273 minutes of action. Redshirt freshman Gabby Cuevas (Wayne, N.J.) provides the coaching staff with another depth option who understands the system. Newcomers Kate Kormushoff (Hinsdale, Ill.) and Katie Smith (Glastonbury, Conn.) have a huge opportunity to win playing time early this season, as the outside back position is now up for grabs. The two freshmen should provide good competition on the field and have a chance to become starters by season’s end. “Adding a number of quality newcomers to the mix should also provide good competition for places on the field,” Tsantiris commented. “This fall we are looking for a little more consistency from game to game.”

#4 Allison Saucier

Goalkeepers Connecticut used a rotation at goalkeeper last season, as three players had at least five starts. Allison Saucier (Rocky Hill, Conn.) returns for her sophomore campaign, after seeing action in eight games last year. Saucier allowed 11 goals and made 23 saves in 635:28 minutes, and boasted a .676 save percentage in the net. Mary Caron (Lewiston, Maine) joined the squad last fall and will get some looks from the coaching staff as the season progresses. Also joining the Huskies is Emily Armstrong, who transferred from Boston College last year, and is the tallest goalkeeper on the roster at 5-9.

American Athletic Conference Not entirely unlike the nation that provides its namesake, the American Athletic Conference was born from an ideal in which members with ambitious goals are provided with the means to succeed in their quests for excellence. With roots that extend to three conferences, the American Athletic Conference membership in 2013 – its debut season – consists of 10 institutions: the University of Central Florida, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Connecticut, the University of Houston, the University of Louisville, the University of Memphis, Rutgers University, Southern Methodist University, the University of South Florida and Temple University. All but Houston sponsor men’s soccer, making 2013-14 a nine-member league for the sport. In 2014-15, East Carolina University, Tulane University and the University of Tulsa come aboard. The 2015-16 season sees the U.S. Naval Academy join the ranks in football only. The American, which operated as the Big East Conference from 1979 to 2013, will immediately take a place at the forefront of Division I athletics, with schools that have played in a combined five Bowl Championship Series games, won four NCAA men’s basketball titles since 1999, and won eight NCAA women’s basketball championships since 1995. The 2013 season will mark the final year of a six-year arrangement with ESPN that gives The American national exposure on ABC television and the ESPN family of networks. ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC will carry a minimum of 19 American home football games each season. Championship Week in December includes three American games on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. At least four American games are featured on ESPN’s Thursday-night package. In addition, ESPN Regional Television will continue to produce and distribute its Game of the Week package to a nationally syndicated audience, reaching more than 30 million homes. Most of these games also will be available as part of the ESPN GamePlan subscription service. Finally, a minimum of five home games will be carried on ESPNU.

The University of Connecticut women’s soccer team ended its 2012 campaign with a 9-8-2 overall record and a 5-4-1 record in BIG EAST play under 32nd-year head coach Len Tsantiris, who became just the second women’s soccer coach at the Division I level to earn 500 career victories with a late season win against Rutgers. Connecticut also qualified for the BIG EAST tournament after missing out on the conference showdown last season for the first time in 18 years.

The Huskies began the season with a three-game home stand at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium, hosting Vermont, Boston College and Maine. The Huskies got off to a quick start, picking up a 4-2 victory against the Catamounts on August 19, scoring two goals in a 40 second period after Vermont knotted the game at two late in the second half. Jennifer Skogerboe scored twice for UConn and Samantha McGuire netted her first career goal in the 70th minute. The Huskies lost a tough game, 4-3, to No. 10 Boston College (Aug. 24) during the second week of action, but ended the first home stand on a positive note, picking up a 3-0 victory against Maine (Aug. 26). Allison Saucier played 58:37 minutes in the net, allowing no goals and recording a save. The Huskies opened up the road portion of their schedule with #7 Danielle Schulmann a daunting two game set against No. 19 North Carolina (Aug. 31) and No. 16 Santa Clara (Sept. 2) at the Notre Dame Adidas Invitational in South Bend, Ind. Despite that fact that UConn held a 10-8 advantage in shots, the stellar UNC defense proved to be too much for Connecticut as it dropped the contest 2-0 and fell to 2-2-0 on the season. In the final game of the Invitational, the Huskies took Santa Clara to two overtimes, earning a 1-1 tie after senior Danielle Schulmann scored the equalizing goal on an assist from Skogerboe at the 22:59 mark. UConn returned home to Morrone Stadium for one game against Marist on September 5th, before hitting the pavement for five consecutive road contests. The Huskies made quick work of the Red Foxes, grabbing a 3-1 win and improving their home record to 3-1-0 on the young season. Connecticut wrapped up its nonconference schedule with a game against intra-state rival Central Connecticut (Sept. 9), taking home a 4-1 victory. Schulmann tallied seven points, including three goals, to lead the Huskies to a 4-2-1 non-conference mark.

#14 Karen Gurnon

The Huskies opened their BIG EAST schedule against Syracuse (Sept. 13) for the third consecutive year, falling 3-2, and losing to their conference rivals for the first time in 18 all-time contests.

Despite the poor showing against the Hoyas, Connecticut found its groove against Villanova (Sept. 23), pulling out a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory. The Huskies were eight seconds away from earning a 1-0 shutout before Hayley Wilson connected for a goal to draw the Wildcats even. Plucenik picked up the slack, scoring a beautiful game-winning goal at the 105:52 mark on an assist from Linda Ruutu to lift her team to victory. Connecticut returned to Storrs on September 28 to take on DePaul in just its second home game of the calendar month. The Huskies strung together their second win in a row, downing the Blue Demons 3-2 in front of 776 fans on a rainy evening, helped by Ruutu’s eventual game-winning goal in the 84th minute. After two shutout losses to Notre Dame (Sept. 30) and USF (Oct. 5), UConn rebounded with a 1-1 double-overtime tie against No. 20 Marquette (Oct. 7), which entered the contest with a 7-0-0 BIG EAST record. For the Huskies, it marked the second ranked opponent that they had drew even with, and moved their overall record to 7-6-2.

#18 Linda Ruutu

After a loss to Pittsburgh(Oct. 11), Connecticut hosted its final regular season game of the season and clinched the No. 4 seed in the BIG EAST’s American Division with a wild 3-2 double overtime victory against Providence (Oct. 20). Ruutu scored the game-winning goal with one second remaining on a masterful cross from Danielle Dakin, and the Huskies officially were back in the BIG EAST Tournament for the first time since 2010. In the first round of the BIG EAST Tournament, which was held at Morrone Stadium, the Huskies were pitted against Rutgers for the first time since October 10, 2010. The Huskies cruised to a 3-1 victory, getting goals from three different players to hand their coach his 500th career victory. Tsantiris became just the second head coach in NCAA women’s soccer history to reach the 500-win club, joining North Carolina’s Anson Dorrance. In his 32 seasons with the Huskies, Tsantiris has compiled a remarkable 500-171-50 record. The victory advanced Connecticut to the BIG EAST Quarterfinals, where the squad fell 4-1 against No. 16 Marquette (Oct. 28) in Milwaukee, Wis.

UConn had no shortage of postseason accolades, headed by Schulmann, as the forward was named to the All-BIG EAST First team, NCSAA Second Team All-Region, and was named a Finalist for Soccer News Net College Boot Award. In addition, three Huskies, Schulmann, Ruutu and Gurnon, were chosen to compete in the NEWISA Senior Bowl at Merrimack College on December, 2.

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”.

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.

LONG ISLAND CONNECTION In his 33-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 17 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 and 2011 when Devin Prendergast and Gabrielle Charno joined the Huskies.

Since the spring 2003 semester, women’s soccer teammates have supported each other academically through a “learning group” program, first proposed by former goalkeeper Maria Yatrakis and initiated by Coach Tsantiris and former team counselor John Miceli. These groups have proven tremendously effective in facilitating academic achievement motivation and team unity, and enhancing team GPA. In fact, the learning group program has been so successful that it is now emulated by the men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams and the women’s cross-country and track & field teams. Annie Yi, Samantha Kelly, Cory Bildstein, Courtney MaitlandWilkinson, and Karen Gurnon will lead the team’s learning groups this fall.

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.

Ground was broken for the UConn Basketball Development Center in the spring of 2013 and the facility will open in 2014 to service both the Huskies’ men’s and women’s championship basketball teams. Manuel oversaw a coaching transition in men’s basketball with the retirement of Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun and the hiring of former Husky student-athlete, NBA player and UConn assistant coach Kevin Ollie. Manuel also hired new head coaches for the UConn men’s and women’s ice hockey programs. The UConn Division of Athletics once again had an outstanding rate performance in the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) in 2013 as the men’s basketball team posted a 947 as Manuel has helped develop a comprehensive academic plan for all UConn programs. Each Husky team met the NCAA minimum requirement while most teams, a total of 20, scored 970 or better. In June of 2013, Manuel was one of 11 Division I ADs, who were named to Athletic Director Advisory Group to the NCAA leadership. The membership of this advisory group will meet periodically with NCAA leadership to provide feedback and perspective on issues that affect NCAA Division I members.

Manuel has already become a key leader in the American Athletic Conference and has been named a member of the league’s Finance Committee. Manuel led a 20-sport program at Buffalo, an institution that is a member of the prestigious American Association of Universities. Buffalo enjoyed an unparalleled period of success during his time there from an athletic, academic and community service perspective. From an academic standpoint, teams at Buffalo enjoyed incredible academic success. When Manuel arrived at UB, there were four programs - football, men’s basketball, wrestling, and baseball - that fell far below the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) cut score of 925. With a focused academic plan, all four teams posted a four-year APR rate above the cut score and at the end of 2009-10, 10 of UB’s 20 sports had scores of 975 or above. Buffalo enjoyed great on-field success during Manuel’s time as the football team participated in the 2009 International Bowl and the men’s basketball team made postseason appearances in three of the past seven years. Olympic sports also thrived under Manuel’s leadership with accomplishments such as three-straight Dad Vail Regatta titles by the rowing team, six wrestlers earning spots at the 2011 NCAA Championship and the women’s tennis team making an appearance in the 2008 NCAA tournament. The sports of baseball and softball won a record number of games during his tenure and student-athletes earned All-American and allconference honors at record rates. Manuel was honored by Sports Business Journal as a 2008 national 40-Under-40 honoree after receiving the same honor from Business First of Buffalo in Fall of 2007. Manuel has served on a number of national and conference committees and boards. In September of 2011, he was one of only three Athletic Directors asked to serve on the Collegiate Model Rules committee, a working group of the Division I Committee on Academic Performance, charged with broad overview of the current NCAA Rules Manual. He also currently serves on the NCAA Division I Championships/ Sports Management Cabinet and served for four years as a member of the NCAA’s Academic Cabinet. During that time, he was selected as Chair of the NCAA Academic Eligibility & Compliance Transfer Ad Hoc Committee. He is a member of the Boards of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the D1A Athletic Directors Association. He also serves as a member of the Council of Presidents Budget & Finance Committee and served for three years as the Chair of the MidAmerican Conference Director of Athletics Finance Committee. In June of 2007, Manuel accepted the Opportunity Award by all-time tennis great Billie Jean King, as Buffalo was recognized by the Women’s Sports Foundation as one of four “standout” colleges and universities in the nation for outstanding achievement in providing equitable athletic opportunities for its female student-athletes. Prior to his time at Buffalo, he was the assistant and associate director of athletics for the University of Michigan, where he oversaw that school’s football and men’s basketball programs. In February 1998, he was named an assistant athletic director at Michigan with responsibilities for overseeing operational facets of the university’s athletic program. He was named an associate athletic director in September 2000. Born May 22, 1968, Manuel is a native of New Orleans, who was a high school All-American football player and played for the University of Michigan under its legendary coach, Bo Schembechler. Manuel earned multiple letters and started at defensive end in his sophomore year. His football career was cut short by a neck injury and he subsequently earned two letters on the Wolverines’ track and field team. After graduating from Michigan, Manuel was coordinator of the university’s Wade H. McCree, Jr., Incentive Scholars Program from June 1990 to August 1993. The program is a partnership with The President’s Council of State Universities and Detroit Public Schools that helps students prepare for higher education at public universities in Michigan. He subsequently worked briefly as an academic advisor with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association before being named assistant athletic director of academic affairs. In the course of working on a PhD in social work and psychology at Michigan, he earned a master’s degree in social work in 1993 and an MBA from Michigan’s Ross School of Business in April 2005. Manuel and his wife, Chrislan, have a daughter, Emma (18), who is entering her sophomore year at UConn, and a son, Evan (14).

In addition to all that the city of Hartford and the state of Connecticut has to offer, the region within two hours of Storrs is ripe with cultural and entertainment possibilities. SPRINGFIELD (47 miles) The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is located less than an hour from Storrs in Springfield, Mass., just minutes from the YMCA where Dr. James Naismith invented the game in 1891. A must-see for any fan of the hardwood, the Hall of Fame reopened in the fall of 2002 in a $45 million home just off of Interstate 91 in Springfield. The pinnacle of any basketball career, the hall’s long list of inductees now includes UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun, a 2005 inductee, and women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, a 2006 inductee. Once you finish your tour of the Hall of Fame, Springfield’s neighboring suburb of Agawam is the home of Six Flags New England, the region’s largest amusement park.

NEW YORK CITY (142 miles) The United States’ largest city and “the media capital of the world,” New York City is located approximately two hours from Storrs and offers a wide array of cultural opportunities. From the glitter of Times Square, to the vast expanse of Central Park, to the majestic skyline, New York City is an incomparable destination and one that can be easily reached by the Metro-North train lines that run into southern Connecticut. UConn students also enjoy the city’s active sporting landscape. The New York metro area also boasts 10 major professional sports franchises, including the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants, Major League Baseball’s New York Mets and Yankees, the NBA’s New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, the NHL’s New York Islanders, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

Storrs


BOSTON (86 miles) The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston’s historic Freedom Trail is a living history textbook, covering everything from the Battle of Bunker Hill to the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Meanwhile, the city blends its old world charm with a cosmopolitan new world attitude that is evidenced by some of the trendier shops and restaurants that line both historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Back Bay’s Newbury Street. One of the world’s foremost centers of education, Boston is home to over 50 colleges and universities; perhaps the entire world’s most concentrated collection of colleges. The greater Boston area also includes the summer beach resorts on Cape Cod and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. A hub of sporting activity, the 2004 and 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox have called fabled Fenway Park home since 1912. The 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics and the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins also call Beantown home, while the 2002, 2004 and 2005 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots and MLS’ New England Revolution play outside of the city in Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.

PROVIDENCE (51 miles) Rhode Island’s capital city shows that one of the nation’s smallest states also has plenty to offer its visitors. The multi-cultural capital city, which dates back to 1636, is the Ocean State’s centerpiece. The best known hamlet on the Rhode Island shore, the ocean town of Newport is world famous for its mansions and is a popular vacation destination for those seeking aquatic activities. Newport’s renowned music festival is also a well-attended annual event.
