2012 WOMEN’S SOCCER


2011 SEASON REVIEW

2012 SEASON OUTLOOK

The Bearcats concluded the 2011 season with an 11-8-1 overall record and a 10-5-2 mark in the Northwest Conference for their best record since 12-7-1 in 2008. WU took third place in the NWC.

The University women’s soccer tean has 19 returning players who will team up with 10 incoming freshman, to prepare or the 2012 season. The roster includes 10 returning starters for the Bearcats.

Senior midfielder Stephanie Skelly scored 16 goals and 5 assists for 37 points, as she led the NWC in scoring. She earned three game-winning goals, including one with 21 seconds left in a 2-1 win against #4-ranked University of Puget Sound. It was Willamette’s first victory against the Loggers since Sept. 24, 2006.

Willamette will attempt to fill the loss of offensive firepower created following the graduation of Stephanie Skelly, who was chosen NWC Offensive Plaer of the Year in 2011 after leading the NWC in scoring.

Skelly’s achievements were recognized through a series of postseason honors. She was named the 2011 NWC Offensive Player of the Year and was selected First Team All-NWC. She was chosen Second Team All-West Region. In addition, she earned First Team Capital One Academic All-America honors. She was chosen as a First Team Academic All-District selection for the second year in a row. Skelly concluded her career with 35 goals and 7 assists for 77 total points. Andi Rowan started all 20 games in 2011 and achieved 1 goal and 3 assists on her way to being named Second Team All-NWC for the third year in a row. She has accumulated 5 goals and 7 assists in her Willamette career. Freshman Sarah Desautels emerged as an impact player, scoring 3 goals and tacking on 2 assists for 8 total points. She was a starter in all 20 games.

Helping fill that void will be the team’s experienced seniors: Andi Rowan, Maddy Grainger, Ariel Wilson and Shannon Scott. Rowan earned a goal and 3 assists last season. Grainger provided the winning goal against Whitworth last season, while Wilson was second on the team in points scored, with 3 goals and 5 assists for 11 points. Scott led the WU defensive, which featured a 1.33 goals against average. Other top scorers returning this season are Sarah Desautels and Kellie Standish, who each finished with three goals. Paige Lancourt provided 2 goals and 4 assists for the Bearcats. Head Coach Hillary Arthur is thrilled with the class of incoming freshmen. All 10 bring great credentials, with significant high school and club team experience. Many of the freshmen will compete for playing time this season.

Gina Barbier earned a 0.54 goals against average and four shutouts in the nets for the Bearcats. She attained a 7-1-1 record.

Willamette will play four non-conference games this year, starting with nearby rival Corban University. WU also will battle with Northwest Christian University, Whittier College (Calif.) and Concordia University (Ore.) before facing Lewis & Clark College in the NWC opener on Sept. 12.

Head Coach Hillary Arthur was selected NWC Women’s Soccer Coach of the Year after guiding the Bearcasts to their third place conference finish. In four seasons at Willamette, Arthur owns a combined record of 39-36-5 (.519).

Overall, Willamette will play 16 games in the NWC, with the Bearcats taking on the other eight teams two times each during a double round-robin schedule. WU will play six of the final nine games of the season at home on Sparks Field.

Dr. Daniel Schweigert WU Team Physician

The Willamette University sports medicine program provides medical support to our varsity athletes. Athletic trainers focus on two components: service and education. Service includes the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered by our athletes. It also involves referrals to medical personnel when athletes become injured or ill. The education component is designed for any student interested in athletic training or other medical fields to gain valuable experience working in a clinical setting.

Dr. David Thorsett WU Team Physician

Students achieve experience by covering practices and games, and by working in the treatment centers where they help Willamette’s certified athletic trainers with rehabilitation of injuries. Our athletic training staff works closely with our team physicians from Silverton Hospital, the physical therapist from PT Northwest and the staff at the Bisohop Wellness Center on the WU campus to provide care for our varsity athletes.

The life of the Willamette student is active, thought-provoking and focused on community — in the classroom and out.

Our students are engaged in communities locally and around the world. About 50% earn study abroad credit before they graduate, and 68% of students complete at least one internship while at Willamette. Academics come first at Willamette, but you still have time to compete. Our athletes, both formal and informal, have an enthusiastic network of supporters.

Salem, Oregon

Located in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the university is situated ideally to access all the benefits of the Pacific Northwest. Gorgeous forests, rivers, mountains and ocean beaches nearby. A relaxed and creative culture. Vibrant arts and music scenes. And, coffee shops on almost every block. Willamette University is in the heart of downtown Salem, Oregon’s capital, a community that is large enough to provide plenty of entertainment, yet personal enough that you’ll usually run into someone you know. When you want to enjoy some of Oregon’s attractions outside Salem, it’s not hard to find a university organized trip or an informal group of friends to join you — whether you plan to snowboard on Mount Hood, catch a concert in Portland or build a bonfire at the coast.

sparks field The Willamette University soccer teams play home games at Sparks Field, an artificial turf facility on the WU campus. Sparks Field has lights for night games and seats 500 fans. The facility, which features a FieldTurf surface, is one of the top small college fields in the Pacific Northwest. Sparks Field also includes covered seating for both teams and has a public address system. Adjacent to Sparks Field is the Lestle J. Sparks Center. The Sparks Center includes the Fitness Center, which is available for use by the soccer teams. The Currey Classroom in the Sparks Center is a great location for team meetings and to evaluate player performances on video. Other facilities at WU include Cone Field House for volleyball as well as men’s and women’s basketball, McCulloch Stadium for football plus track and field, John Lewis Field for baseball, the WU Natatorium for swimming, plus the WU Tennis Courts and the WU Softball Field.

The nine private colleges and universities in Oregon and Washington that form the Northwest Conference are building a reputation as one of the top NCAA Division III leagues in the nation. The NWC is nationally competitive in a broad spectrum of sports. Willamette has won 28 NWC team titles since 2003. Current coaches at WU have achieved NWC Coach of the Year honors 24 times. Formed in 1926, the NWC is 84 years old and is one of the oldest conferences in the western United States. The NWC’s current members in Oregon are Willamette, George Fox, Linfield, Lewis and Clark, and Pacific. Members located in Washington are Pacific Lutheran, Puget Sound, Whitman and Whitworth. Charter members included Willamette, the College of Idaho, Linfield, Pacific and Puget Sound. Albany College was added in 1931, remained for seven years, and then returned in 1949 as Lewis & Clark College. Pacific Lutheran joined in 1965 and was followed by Whitworth in 1970. The College of Idaho withdrew from the conference in 1978. Whitworth dropped out in 1984 and returned in 1988. Menlo joined in 2006 as a member in football only and dropped out in 2009.

NCAA Division III is where the true student-athlete studies and competes. The National Collegiate Athletic Association is the main governing body of collegiate sports, dividing levels of classification into three divisions. D3 institutions are largely regarded as leading academic institutions and do not offer athletic scholarships. Still, athletics in D3 is highly competitive. There are over 136,000 athletes at over 430 D3 colleges and universities and each one is studying to earn a valuable degree in preparation for the workplace while playing the sport that he or she loves. For D3 athletes, sports have been an integral part of our lives since our youth. From elementary school through high school, sports have complemented our educational experience. And as college looms, we want to continue playing the sport we love while receiving an education from a first-rate college. A D3 school is that fit.

The NWC originally sponsored athletic competition for men’s sports only, but joined forces with the Women’s Conference of Independent Colleges in 1984 to form the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges. The name was shortened back to the original Northwest Conference in 1998. Also in 1998, all nine NWC members shifted affiliation from the NAIA to the NCAA. Members knew the move would foster equity, sportsmanship and a genuine concern for all student-athletes.
