“My approach, my philosophy, is that you do everything right. If you’re going to be the best soccer player, the best friend, the best student or the best daughter you can be, you have to do it right. Whatever you do, it has to be done with 100 percent commitment, sacrifice and pride.” - Nikki Izzo-Brown Head Coach

2013 IN REVIEW The Mountaineers pushed their Big 12 Conference title count to three in 2013, as they successfully defended their regularseason championship and won the Big 12 Soccer Tournament title, becoming the first WVU team to capture a Big 12 tournament championship. Frances Silva and Kadeisha Buchanan were each named to the NSCAA All-America Second Team. Buchanan was the first Mountaineer rookie to earn All-America honors. WVU’s 4-0 win over Central Michigan on Aug. 30 gave Nikki Izzo-Brown her 250th career win. The squad’s 1-0 win over Baylor in the Big 12 Soccer Tournament semifinal was the program’s 250th victory. WVU earned its 14th straight NCAA Tournament bid and advanced to the second round for the first time since 2010.

DREAMSWORK FIELD

 In the fall of 2011, the Mountaineers stepped foot on their new state-of-the-art training facility called Dreamswork Field. The training site features the same custom, natural grass surface as the game field at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.  The women’s soccer-only practice facility features a 75-by-120 yard natural turf field, along with additional space for goalkeeper drills and player warm-ups to avoid extensive use of the playing surface. A complete water drainage and irrigation system exists on the new site, while four towers outline the fields with lights that can illuminate game-field conditions.  The program also has a custom players’ locker room, coaches office suite, players’ lounge with kitchenette and computer stations, athletic training room that includes a hydrotherapy pool, hall of honor, equipment and apparel room and public restrooms.

BIG 12 CONFERENCE The Big 12 ushers in its 19th year this fall as it continues to promote the stability, strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby announced a league-record $198 million in revenue distributions to their 10 members for the 2012-13 school year. The total was a $15 million increase from last year. Conference institutions include Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech, TCU and West Virginia. Kansas State, however, does not field a women’s soccer program.

30

Big 12 institutions create a league that encompasses five states and nearly 37 million people. More than 4,200 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Big 12 is a strong conference that, like WVU, values quality academic and athletic programs, and has a great tradition of success. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and game officials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship.

MOUNTAINEERS IN THE COMMUNITY

34


Winning and working hard are important to the West Virginia University women’s soccer team. But becoming successful and positive role models on and off the field is just as significant to the Mountaineers. Women’s soccer student-athletes and coaches participate in a variety of community service activities, including reading at schools, hospital visits and speaking engagements. At the core of women’s soccer’s many philanthropic activities has been its involvement to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. This past spring, the team raised a record-setting $8,584 for Morgantown’s Betty Puskar Breast Care Foundation at its annual 4-versus-4 tournament. The WVU women’s soccer team has raised more than $100,000 over the past 11 years to help fight breast cancer.

MOUNTAINEERS ABROAD

“The experience and knowledge gained from our international competitions have been instrumental in our development as a team and for our program. We were forced to adapt to many different styles of play and continually develop our team chemistry. And for many of our ladies, they have never been to another country. Each trip has been a tremendous cultural and soccer experience for our student-athletes.” - Nikki Izzo-Brown Head Coach

2012 The Mountaineers’ fourth international tour featured a nineday tour of Spain. West Virginia spent March 24-April 1, 2012, in Madrid and Barcelona.

2008 Billed as the trip of a lifetime, the West Virginia University women’s soccer team traveled to the Czech Republic and Italy for a 10-day spring break tour of Europe. The Mountaineers spent March 20-30, 2008, playing four games while exploring new cultures.

2004 During spring break 2004, West Virginia University took advantage of the NCAA rule that permits international travel once every four years by taking a 10-day tour of central and north-central Italy.

1999 The West Virginia women’s soccer team took its first foreign tour in the summer of 1999 by traveling to Brazil. The Mountaineers used the opportunity to showcase their infant program against some of the nation’s top professional teams.

MOUNTAINEER ALUMNI

“She calls herself Aunt Nikki because she really is a mother-figure to us. I feel comfortable talking to her about anything and everything. She is very open and understanding. I wouldn’t trade my four years playing for her for anything in the world. I’m a better person because of Nikki Izzo-Brown.”

– Chelsey Corroto (2008-11)

“I chose to play soccer at WVU because of my aspiration to be a part of one of the most competitive programs in the country. Coach Nikki IzzoBrown and her staff built an infant program into a top 10 power.”

– Cathy Abel (2003-06)

“Led by Nikki Izzo-Brown and her coaching staff, the fierce competition, team training, and grueling conditioning sessions on top of academic responsibility…they prepared us not only for matches, but for life after graduation.”

– Maura Cirilli (2001-04)

“During my years at West Virginia University, I came to realize what many before me have understood – WVU is the best collegiate experience in the country. They maximized my talent as a soccer player and prepared me to succeed in the real world upon graduation. I have made lifelong friendships that form the basis for most of what makes the ‘Mountaineer Experience’ so valuable and rewarding.”

– Chrissie Abbott (2000-03)

“From the moment I stepped on campus, it felt like home. The university embraces all that is WVU, from academics to athletics. The soccer team was beginning to build a tradition of strength, integrity and pride, and I knew everything Coach Izzo-Brown reflected on her players was the type of player I wanted to be.”

– Laura Finley (2000-03)

“Being a student-athlete at West Virginia was one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. Through hard work and goal setting, we surpassed expectations and always believed in one another. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and will always cherish my time wearing the Old Gold and Blue.”

– Nikki (Garzon) Goodenow (1997-98)

“I am a better person for having West Virginia women’s soccer in my life. I wouldn’t change one single thing about my college experience. I’ll always be proud to be a Mountaineer.”

– Ann (Sorensen) Ross (1996-99)

“As a member of the inaugural team, I look back and treasure the challenges I faced and the amazing opportunities throughout my four years. Not only was I able to capitalize on my skills at a high level of competition, I also learned a lot about myself from the leadership of coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. Overall, my experience is one I refer back to frequently in my everyday life as I continue on as a physical educator and soccer coach.”

– Rena (Lippa) Lindsay (1996-98)

“WVU women’s soccer is a program built on hard work, commitment and passion. It also is a program that exemplifies the true meaning of a family, from the staff down to the fans.”

-Caroline Szwed (2009-13)

Nikki Izzo-Brown Q&A with Coach Izzo-Brown Lisa Stoia Marisa Kanela Support Staff


2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

Head Coach Nikki Izzo-Brown SEASON AT WVU: 19th DATE OF BIRTH: May 4 HOMETOWN: Rochester, N.Y. ALMA MATER: Rochester, 1993 RECORD AT WVU: 251-96-39 OVERALL RECORD: 264-101-39

Entering her 19th season as the only coach in Mountaineer women’s soccer history, Nikki Izzo-Brown has built a one-time infant program into one of the nation’s elite. In her previous 18 seasons, Izzo-Brown has coached 14 players who went on to play professionally, 17 All-Americans, 12 Academic All-Americans and 14 conference players of the year. The Mountaineers enter the 2014 season having made an appearance in each of the last 14 NCAA Tournaments, the country’s ninthlongest streak. To date, Izzo-Brown has led the Mountaineers to an impressive 251-96-39 overall record and a 106-41-18 conference mark that includes seven regular-season divisional titles and four tournament championships. West Virginia has won at least one conference title in each of the last four seasons, including the 2013 Big 12 Conference regular-season and tournament championships. Women’s soccer won the school’s first Big 12 championship in 2012 and was the only WVU program to win multiple Big East tournament titles. Izzo-Brown’s teams have been a consistent force in the national rankings, and WVU has defeated a Top-10 opponent in nine straight seasons. In addition to the success she has enjoyed with the Mountaineers, Izzo-Brown has several years of experience with U.S. Women’s National Teams, including serving as an assistant at the teams’ 2012 training camps with the U.S. U-18, U-20 and U-23 squads.

PLAYING CAREER: (defender) Rochester, 1989-92 COACHING CAREER: West Virginia Wesleyan, assistant coach, 1993; West Virginia Wesleyan, head coach, 1994; West Virginia University, 1996-present

Entering the 2014 season, she ranks in the top 20 among active NCAA Division I coaches with a .702 winning percentage and in the top 25 with 264 career wins (includes one year at West Virginia Wesleyan). IzzoBrown has never had a losing season as head coach and has led WVU to 14 straight 10-plus win seasons.

2010-13 The Mountaineers became the third team in Big 12 history to win back-to-back regular-season titles. The squad secured seven straight victories in conference play in 2013 to successfully defend its championship with a 7-1 record. The team continued its stronghold on its conference opponents with three shutout victories at the 2013 Big 12 Soccer Tournament en route to the Mountaineers’ first Big 12 Conference Championship title, also the first for any WVU team at a Big 12 Conference Championship. The Mountaineers have won four conference tournaments in the last seven years. With the win, WVU earned the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, its 14th consecutive appearance. The Mountaineers advanced to the second round for the ninth time in program history, the first time since 2010, and finished the year at 16-4-3 and ranked No. 12 in the NSCAA/Continental Tire College Rankings and No. 8 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 25 Rankings. WVU swept the conference awards, as Frances Silva was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and Kadeisha Buchanan was the Big 12 Defender and Newcomer of the Year; the Mountaineers became the first team to win the offensive and defensive awards in the same season. Additionally, Izzo-Brown earned her second straight Big 12 Coach of the Year honor, and six student-athletes scored eight All-Big 12 awards.

The successful season ended with the trio scoring several major awards, including NSCAA/Continental Tire All-America Second Team honors for Silva and Buchanan and NSCAA Central Region Coach of the Year honors for Izzo-Brown. Additionally, Silva, a M.A.C. Hermann Trophy semifinalist, was named an NSCAA College Scholar All-American and the CoSIDA Academic All-American of the Year. In its inaugural season in the Big 12 Conference in 2012, WVU won the regular-season championship with a 7-0-1 record. Seven student-athletes were named All-Big 12, including Bry McCarthy who was chosen Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. Izzo-Brown was named the conference coach of the year. The 2012 Mountaineers scored an upset win over No. 1-ranked Stanford, 1-0, on Aug. 26 at the Penn State Invitational. The win snapped Stanford’s 64-match regular-season unbeaten streak. West Virginia defeated visiting Texas Tech, 3-2, on Sept. 21 to give women’s soccer, and WVU athletics, its first victory as members of the Big 12 Conference. To end their careers, McCarthy earned All-America honors and midfielder Bri Rodriguez was named a NSCAA College Scholar All-American. The 2010-11 seasons marked the end of an era as the Mountaineers won back-to-back Big East Championships before departing for membership in the Big 12 Conference. It also marked the third conference title in the last five seasons. West Virginia finished the 2011 season with a 17-5-0 record, and a 10-1-0 mark in league play, to win its

WVU’s 1-0 win over fifth-ranked Virginia matched the then-highest-ranked opponent defeated in school history, and the team’s 3-0 shutout against Georgetown marked the program’s 200th win. West Virginia’s defense set the single-season record for shutouts at 14, while goalkeeper Kerri Butler also broke the school record for career shutouts, finishing with 44.

2005-09 From 2005-09, the program reached new heights with consecutive NCAA appearances in every season and won its first Big East Championship. Izzo-Brown was named NSCAA/adidas and Soccer Buzz Mid-Atlantic Regional Coach of the Year in 2007 as WVU was ranked every week throughout the season and tied a school record for wins (18). The 2007 squad advanced to the program’s first NCAA Elite Eight while establishing an attendance record with more than 3,000 fans for the NCAA Elite Eight contest with USC. Three players earned All-America status and six were named All-Big East. Forward Ashley Banks added to Izzo-Brown’s collection of major award winners

Seven seasons ago, Izzo-Brown took her high-powered offense to the 2006 NCAA Tournament as WVU scored a school-record 55 goals in 21 games. Forward Deana Everrett had a breakout sophomore season to earn third team All-America honors from Soccer Buzz. The 2006 Mountaineers also displayed a stingy defense that shut out 13 opponents over the course of the season, including eight Big East foes.

2000-04 Led by All-Americans Chrissie Abbott and Lisa Stoia, the 2003 Mountaineers made history, going 17-4-2 to give West Virginia its first NCAA “Sweet 16” appearance. The senior-led squad logged nine straight wins at one point during the season and had its first-ever Hermann Trophy nominee in Abbott, who graduated as WVU’s all-time leader in goals scored, points and shots, while Stoia established the school’s then-all-time assist record. Izzo-Brown directed West Virginia to an 18-3-1 record, the most wins in school history, and the program’s first Big East division title in 2002. The Mountaineers also received their third consecutive invitation to the NCAA Tournament after putting together an 18-match unbeaten streak. Abbott was the Big East Offensive Player of the Year and a first team All-American, while Stoia earned Big East Midfielder of the Year honors. IzzoBrown was the Big East and regional coach of the year.

The 2010 season was a record-breaking one as the team won its second Big East Championship while advancing to the NCAA “Sweet 16.” WVU had its school record 14-match win streak end in the NCAA Tournament against College Cup participant Boston College, giving the Mountaineers a final record of 18-5-1. The 18 victories tied the 2002 and 2007 teams for most wins in program history.

WVU won Big East division titles in three straight seasons (2006-08) and at least one Mountaineer earned All-America honors from 2006-09. Carolyn Blank added the title of Big East Midfielder of the Year to her resume in 2008, a team that tied the school record for fewest losses in a season with three defeats.

Izzo-Brown has coached 12 Academic All-Americans, and the NSCAA honored her team in the fall of 2013 with its 12th consecutive NSCAA Team Academic Award for its work in the classroom.

A youthful Mountaineer squad played to a fifth straight 15-win season in 2004 and saw Izzo-Brown’s fourth All-American develop as forward Laura Kane earned the nod from the NSCAA after an eight goal, nine assist senior season. West Virginia was nationally ranked for the first time in 2000, a regional coach of the year season for IzzoBrown’s first-ever NCAA Tournament team. Four team members landed spots on Big East all-conference teams, including Big East Offensive Player of the Year Katie Barnes and co-Big East Rookie of the Year Stoia. In that season, Barnes became WVU’s first All-American.

The Early Years Izzo-Brown accepted perhaps her greatest challenge on Aug. 3, 1995, when then-WVU Director of Athletics Ed Pastilong named her the first head coach of West Virginia’s women’s soccer program. In WVU’s inaugural season, Izzo-Brown led a young team to an amazing 10-7-2 record and a 4-4-1 Big East mark. WVU finished fifth in the conference, surprising Big East coaches, whose preseason prediction picked the fledgling Mountaineers to finish dead last. Soccer Buzz ranked West Virginia as the eighth-best “new program” in the nation. In addition, Izzo-Brown’s first season at WVU produced a Big East All-Rookie team member in defender Stacey Sollmann. Only two years later, West Virginia made its first Big East Tournament on a team that won 11 matches in 1998. Stacey Adams was the program’s first Big East Female Scholar Athlete of the Year winner, and Sollmann earned second team all-region accolades. Izzo-Brown led the Mountaineers to an 11-6-2 record in 1997, and two years later, they finished 9-9-1. With trust, hard work and sacrifice, the foundation had been laid for a breakout season in 2000.

Academic Success Graduation is a must for Izzo-Brown-coached players who are asked to challenge themselves academically while at WVU. Her teams consistently hold one of the program’s highest GPAs on campus with their serious commitment to academics. Nikki Izzo-Brown has several years of experience coaching U.S. Women’s National Teams.

The women’s soccer team received public recognition in the spring of 2010 for the third year in a row by the NCAA for its multiyear Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores.

A program-best 10 student-athletes were named to the 2013 All-Big 12 Academic Soccer Team, with eight landing on the first team. Amanda Hill and Carly Black earned the first-team honor with a 4.0 GPA. For the seventh straight season, at least one Mountaineer was an NSCAA Scholar All-Region.

Player Development With tremendous experience and knowledge of the game, Izzo-Brown has built a reputation for getting the most out of her student-athletes. The veteran coach maximizes the performance of her players by providing opportunities to process information in multiple ways, in order to find success for each individual. Paving the way for the success of recent Mountaineers, Katie Barnes was the first women’s soccer player to be named an All-American, and captured two straight Big East Offensive Player of the Year awards. In all, IzzoBrown has guided 17 players to All-America status and 14 conference player of the year honors. Barnes was drafted with the first pick of the second round (ninth overall) of the 2002 Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA) professional draft by the Carolina Courage. WVU was well represented in the WUSA and added to its professional player development with the Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) league. Most recently, Frances Silva became the seventh Mountaineer to be drafted when she was selected by FC Kansas City with the 19th overall pick at the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League College Draft. Additionally, Sara Keane was picked up by FC Kansas City prior to the 2014 opener, and both signed contracts with the Blues. During the 2012 offseason, Izzo-Brown served as an assistant at U.S. Women’s National Team training camps with the U.S. U-18, U-20 and U-23 squads. In the summer of 2011, she joined April Heinrichs, U.S. Soccer Technical Director, for a week of training with the U-20 team. She also spent time after the 2007 season as an assistant coach with the U-20 National Team under then-head coach Jill Ellis. During her coaching tenure, more than a dozen Mountaineers have participated in the national team scene, with Barnes being selected to the team that won the 2001 Nordic Cup. Most recently, Kadeisha Buchanan and Ashley Lawrence earned spots on the Canadian Women’s National Team for friendlies throughout the 2014 summer.

2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

Q&A With Coach Nikki Izzo-Brown Your team returns in 2014 as the two-time defending Big 12 champions. Do you think you’ve sent a message in the conference that you are the team to beat? What does it say of the program that the Mountaineers have won five conference titles in four years? Obviously, winning championships is what we strive to do every year. For us to have an impact on the Big East Conference, and then go into the Big 12 Conference and continue to win is good for this program. There is always a target on our back. I think that pressure is a privilege, and that privilege is something this team works hard for. Everyone wants to take down the team at the top. With us finishing first again in 2013, that’s something we’ll have to pay attention to this season. The season starts with several challenges, including a trip to Penn State and an August home meeting with NCAA quarterfinalist Duke. What are you hoping to learn about your squad early, and what does the team need to do to be successful? We’re hoping that preseason is an opportunity for our team to get organized and in tune with each other quickly. We all need to understand that we need to sharpen up during preseason. We will be tested early on in 2014 by some of the best teams in the country. It’s going to be important that everyone arrives at preseason camp ready to compete at that high level. We don’t have all season to build up to that level. Though you only lost two starters from the 2013 squad, forward Frances Silva and goalkeeper Sara Keane, they were big cogs in the team’s success. How does this year’s team replace their talent and experience? You can never replace any senior, let alone two that are currently playing professional soccer (for FC Kansas City). Though we’re only replacing two starters, they’re both having an impact on a professional team’s success in their first season, and that speaks for itself. We will have an understanding that Frances and Sara’s shoes need to be filled. They both set great examples for what it takes to be a role model, and it’s time for other players to step up and assume those leadership roles. They left a legacy for two more players to fill. Frances Silva led the Big 12 Conference in goals, assists and points in 2013. In addition to All-Big 12 forward Kate Schwindel, who do you see assuming the scoring responsibility this year? I think there is a high expectation for (junior forward) Kelsie Maloney to continue to develop and impact this team. (Junior forward) Kailey Utley is definitely someone who had a great spring. (Freshman forward) Amandine Pierre-Louis was forced to sit out last season but has trained well this offseason. These are the players that we feel will need to step up and get the job done.

56

KELSIE MALONEY Though last year’s backline was young, they proved steady and gained valuable experience. What is your trust level with this unit this year? We had two freshmen center backs (Carly Black and Kadeisha Buchanan) in 2013, and at times you could see their youth peek through. I think the leadership and experience that they gained last year will be valuable for our success this year. It’s going to be exciting to see them out on the field again this year and playing alongside the new girls. Kadeisha Buchanan emerged as one of the top talents in the NCAA last year as a freshman and has gained international exposure this summer. What are your thoughts on her play and her leadership capabilities, and what areas can she improve this year? Kadeisha is a constant student of the game, and I think she recognizes that she always has room to grow. She will continue to strive toward growth. She is someone that never feels like she has it all figured out. Tactically, being in her position for another year and understanding forwards’ runs and the organizational piece will be something that she, along with Carly, can lean on and use to further our team’s success.


We lay out our expectations for our newcomers every year – follow the workouts and be prepared. I think our freshmen will have the opportunity to acclimate to college soccer and being away from home; I know that’s a hard adjustment. I think this group is focused and understands that there is a high standard, and they’re going to do everything they can to live up to that. From my standpoint, I expect them to work hard and to continue to grind it out. It’s crucial that freshmen are open minded to learning and continue to move forward. Two years in, has the program adjusted to life in the Big 12 Conference? I think now that the staff has competed in every Big 12 venue, we have a very important understanding of what to expect when we travel. We have a much better idea of the facilities, environment and the teams’ style of play; that was something I was very uncertain of two years ago. The players have a better understanding, too, and I would say the program has adjusted nicely. The Mountaineers have made an appearance in the last 14 straight NCAA Tournaments. Fielding such a young squad in 2013, how important was it to move on to that second round game, and how will that help this year?

The WVU women’s soccer team enjoys a loyal following from Mountaineer Nation, especially in Morgantown. How would you describe the game-day atmosphere at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium, and how does a home crowd push your team forward? We have such a great following. That support has definitely helped us moving forward and achieving success. Many teams have told me they don’t like to play in Morgantown because of our supportive crowds and the energy and enthusiasm they bring every match. That support is a critical piece in our program’s success. We’re very thankful that we have a loyal soccer community that comes out for our matches and supports us. They help us push forward, and we can always rely on them to make our home a tough environment for visiting teams. You and the team enjoyed milestone victories in 2013. What steps are important for this program to earn its next 250 wins? We’re going to come into the 2014 preseason with team goals and lay out our pillars for success. My goal has always been this – let’s get better, and let’s play better by the end of the year. Every day, every practice, if we’re getting better and everyone is doing her job, then that’s exactly what we need to do to earn those next 250 wins.

WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY

RECORD BOOK

No question, advancing in the NCAA Tournament was very important for this squad. We came so close to having an opportunity to further advance to the Sweet 16, and that was definitely good for them to experience and feel, too. They now know that when you’re one-and-done, you’re done. I think that even though we won two conference championships and put together a great season, many of these student-athletes have a fire in their bellies and want to advance further this year.

MOUNTAINEER PROFILES

You have six freshmen joining the squad this fall. What are you expecting from this group?

I hope that we’re not excellent in just one area. I stress balance and the understanding that education is their foundation. That’s the one thing I mention a lot to our recruits – when you step into Dreamswork Practice Facility and look at our Wall of Traditions, you will see that we have an equal amount of athletic and academic All-Americans. Striving for excellence in everything we do is one part of this program’s foundation.

2014 SEASON

I think all three bring three different strengths and aspects to the table. This is going to be a very exciting preseason – I’m anxious to see who is going to win that spot. I’m in an exciting position because that decision is not going to be easy; they’re all very strong in their own way.

Student-athlete life balance is very important to you and your staff, and each season, at least one Mountaineer earns national honors for academics. Are you pleased with the progress your squad makes in the classroom, too?

2013 SEASON

You rotated three goalies (senior Katie Osterman, junior transfer Hannah Steadman and redshirt-freshman Michelle Newhouse) in the net throughout the spring season. What do you expect from this trio?

Lisa Stoia begins her eighth year at her alma mater. The Mountaineers have thrived under Stoia’s assistance, winning Big 12 and Big East titles, and making seven straight trips to the NCAA Tournament. In 2013, Stoia helped the Mountaineers to their fifth conference title in four consecutive seasons, as the squad successfully defended its Big 12 Conference regular-season title and won its first Big 12 Soccer Tournament title. Additionally, she aided forward Frances Silva in winning the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honors and saw WVU secure eight All-Big 12 awards. Silva ended the season tops in the Big 12 in goals (15), assists (13) and points (43). She also heads up the team’s travel throughout the season, team-issued gear and its Nike Elite allotment, along with on-campus visitations, recruiting and scouting efforts. Two seasons ago, Stoia helped WVU win the school’s first Big 12 championship with an unbeaten 2012 regular season. She guided midfielder Bri Rodriguez to All-Big 12 First Team honors, as well as NSCAA College Scholar All-America recognition. In 2011, Stoia helped the Mountaineers post a 17-5-0 record – one win shy of tying the school record for wins in a season. She mentored forward Kate Schwindel to a 19-point freshman season to be named Big East Rookie of the Year. Additionally, five Mountaineers were named All-Big East in the team’s final season in the conference. Stoia, a former conference player of the year, has developed WVU’s midfield and front line, as Carolyn Blank twice earned All-America honors (2008-09). Blank also became the first Mountaineer since Stoia to be named Big East Midfielder of the Year.

With Rodriguez’s first team All-Big East selection in 2010, it gave WVU a midfielder on the league’s first team in each of the past five seasons. Stoia’s efforts were recognized as she was named NSCAA/Mondo North Atlantic Regional Assistant Coach of the Year. Five years ago, Stoia played in the 2009 Women’s Professional Soccer league after being drafted with the 48th overall pick by the Saint Louis Athletica. In the WPS’ inaugural season, Stoia helped the Athletica to a second-place finish and WPS Super Semifinal playoff appearance. In 2007, WVU advanced deep into postseason play, making a trip to the school’s first NCAA Elite Eight. She also helped midfielder Amanda Cicchini earn AllAmerica honors. Stoia spent the 2005 and 2006 seasons as an assistant coach at Jacksonville, where she helped guide the Dolphins to a 2006 NCAA Tournament berth. The Dolphins posted their first double-digit win total since 2002 and earned their second Atlantic Sun Championship in school history. She was active in securing the Atlantic Sun’s top recruiting class according to Soccer Buzz magazine, which rated Jacksonville’s 2007 class as best in the conference. JU players benefited from Stoia’s two seasons of leadership as four Dolphins picked up all-conference recognition, and forward Keri Zwikker earned 2005 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year honors. In the summer, Stoia competed for two seasons as a midfielder with the Boston Renegades in the Women’s United Soccer League. In 2006, she led the team and ranked second in the league with 11 assists. She also

2007-present; Jacksonville, 2005-06

ranked fifth in the league with 29 points and finished with nine goals on the season. Prior to JU, Stoia served as a student assistant coach in 2004 at WVU. That season, she helped the program to its fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, including a first-round win over SMU. A four-year letterwinner at West Virginia from 2000-03, Stoia set Mountaineer career records for assists (33) and matches played and started (87). As a senior, she set a program record with 12 assists and was second on the squad with seven goals and 26 points en route to Big East Midfielder of the Year along with NSCAA and Soccer Buzz All-America accolades. Stoia earned NSCAA and Soccer Buzz Second Team All-America honors, Big East Midfielder of the Year and First Team All-Big East recognition as a junior after finishing with eight goals, 10 assists and 26 points. As a sophomore, she earned Soccer Buzz Honorable Mention All-America, Soccer Buzz First Team All-Region, NSCAA/ adidas Second Team All-Region and First Team All-Big East accolades after tallying four goals and five assists. Stoia also earned NSCAA/adidas Third Team All-MidAtlantic Region and Big East co-Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman. Stoia also was a member of the U.S. U-21 Women’s National Team Pool in 2003. A year later, she was named a 2004 National Strength and Conditioning All-American. In September 2007, she was inducted into William Floyd High’s inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame. A native of Shirley, N.Y., Stoia earned her bachelor’s degree in sport management from West Virginia in 2005 and her master’s of business administration from Jacksonville in 2007.

2014 Notebook 2014 Schedule Opponent Quick Facts


2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

2014 Notebook Ready for Battle One thing is certain entering the 2014 season – the Mountaineers will be challenged. WVU’s slate features six opponents that appeared in the 2013 NCAA Tournament: Penn State, Duke, Georgetown, La Salle, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. “The goal is always to improve every game in preparation for conference play and to be competing for as long as we can at the end of the season,” says WVU coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “To be the best, you must play the best – that’s always been my philosophy.” For the second straight season, and the third time in four years, WVU will open at Penn State. The team also will face Missouri that weekend. WVU opens its 10th year at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium against Duke, a 2013 NCAA Tournament quarterfinalist, on Aug. 29. The two teams battled to a 1-1 doubleovertime draw at the 2013 Duke Nike Classic. The Mountaineers will compete at DDSS 12 times in 2014, and the two-time defending Big 12 Conference regular-season champions and reigning conference tournament champions will close out their slate with three straight home matches against league opponents – Oklahoma State, the 2013 Big 12 Tournament runners-up, Oklahoma and Baylor, the 2012 conference tournament champions. Nice to Meet You The Mountaineers will face three first-time opponents in 2014: Missouri, Elon and UNC Greensboro. In the program’s 18-year history (moving into 2014), the Mountaineers have faced 97 different teams.

National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) TV College Soccer Showcase Series. After matches at Iowa State and Kansas, WVU closes its regular season with three straight Big 12 matches at DDSS, including a season-ending match against Baylor, the 2012 Big 12 Tournament champions, on Oct. 31. WVU snapped BU’s 31-game unbeaten streak last season with a 4-3 victory in Waco. Following a successful first stint, the Big 12 Soccer Championship will be held at Swope Soccer Village, in Kansas City, Missouri, Nov. 5-9. The quarterfinal and semifinal rounds were streamed by the Big 12 Digital Network on Big12Sports.com in 2013, and Fox Sports 1 carried the championship match. The top eight teams based on conference results determined by a point system qualify for the Big 12 Championship. A squad gets three points for each conference win and one point for each conference tie. All-Big 12 Talent Returns Five of the Mountaineers’ six All-Big 12 honorees from last season return in 2014, including Big 12 Defender and Newcomer of the Year, Kadeisha Buchanan. She is one of three first-team honorees on this year’s squad, as forwards Kate Schwindel, a two-time honoree, and Ashley Lawrence also return. Midfielder Amanda Hill was named to the second team, and defender Carly Black landed on the Newcomer Team, along with Black and Lawrence.

Schwindel, Maloney to Lead Offensive Attack Despite the loss of All-American forward Frances Silva, the Mountaineers return 68 percent of their goal scoring from 2013, including forwards Kate Schwindel and Kelsie Maloney. The duo combined for 17 goals last season, including seven game-winners. Schwindel, a senior and two-time NSCAA All-Central Region honoree, finished second behind Silva in 2013 with 11 goals and six assists for 28 points. Maloney, a junior, finished third with 16 points (6 G, 4 A). In total, WVU returns four student-athletes that tallied double-digit point totals in 2013, including sophomore forward Ashley Lawrence and junior defender/midfielder Cari Price; the duo each finished with 12 points on four goals and four assists. Junior forward Kailey Utley had a great spring with the Mountaineers and is expected to see more action this season. She owns six career points. A Back Line Matures Young just one season ago, the Mountaineer defense will be one of the most experienced units on the field in 2014. WVU returns all four back-line starters: senior outside back Jess Crowder, junior outside back Leah Emaus and sophomore center backs Kadeisha Buchanan and Carly Black. The unit helped the Mountaineers post 10 shutouts in 2013, including four straight in postseason play, and hold opponents to just 24 goals.

WVU also returns 2012 All-Big 12 honorees, defender Leah Emaus and forward Kelsie Maloney.

WVU was 2-1-1 against first-time foes in 2013, including a 1-1 double-overtime draw at Duke on Sept. 6. The Mountaineers and the Blue Devils will meet again in 2014, as WVU opens its home season against Duke on Friday, Aug. 29, at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. Going For Five The Mountaineers look to push their Big 12 Conference haul to five in 2014, as WVU seeks its third straight regular-season championship and a successful defense of its tournament title. WVU opens its conference season on the road with a swing through Texas, as the team opens at TCU on Friday, Sept. 26, before a Sunday showdown against the Longhorns. The Mountaineers face a tough challenge in their home Big 12 opener, as Texas Tech, the only conference team to earn a regular-season victory against WVU, travels to Morgantown for a Friday night match on Oct. 10. The contest will be featured on the

All-Big 12 honoree Carly Black returns to a more mature Mountaineer back line.


Osterman saw her first career action in 2013, playing the final 14:53 in the team’s 4-1 win over Wright State. Steadman comes from Tennessee, where she saw time in three matches throughout her career, including 45 minutes between the posts in the team’s 4-1 loss to No. 16 Kentucky in 2013. She made three saves, the first of her career, in the defeat. Newhouse, a Pinch, W.Va., native, was a 2012 NSCAA Girls High School AllAmerican and the 2012 West Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year at Capital High.

Izzo-Brown has coached 14 student-athletes who went on to play professionally, 17 All-Americans, 12 Academic All-Americans and 14 conference players of the year. To date, she owns an impressive 251-96-39 overall record at WVU and a 264-101-39 overall mark. IzzoBrown earned her career 250th victory with a 4-0 win over Central Michigan on Aug. 30, 2013.

International Experience

In just 18 seasons, the West Virginia University women’s soccer team has earned 251 program wins, an average of 14 victories per season.

The Mountaineers have developed a true home field advantage, going 80-15-12 at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium since its opening in August 2004. Including a 4-0 showing in 2013, WVU has not dropped a conference match in Morgantown since losing, 3-2 in overtime, to then-No. 8 Notre Dame on Oct. 2, 2009.

The 2014 WVU roster features four student-athletes who gained experience on the national level throughout the offseason.

The Mountaineers scored program win No. 250 with their 1-0 victory over Baylor at the 2013 Big 12 Soccer Championship semifinal on Nov. 8, in Kansas City, Missouri.

Season Review A Big 12 Sweep 2013 Results 2013 Statistics


2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

2013 Season Review Collecting Rings

Big 12 Beasts

Uncharted Territory

The Mountaineers staked their claim in 2013 as the Big 12 Conference’s team to beat, as the squad successfully defended its regular-season title and posted three straight shutouts in the conference tournament to capture its first Big 12 Championship title, the first Big 12 Tournament title for any WVU team.

After an early exit from the 2012 Big 12 Conference Tournament, the Mountaineers entered the 2013 round of games focused and prepared to not allow history to repeat itself.

The Mountaineers swept the 2013 Big 12 Conference postseason awards. Forward Frances Silva earned the Offensive Player of the Year honor as a unanimous selection, while center back Kadeisha Buchanan was named the Defender and Newcomer of the Year. Additionally, coach Nikki Izzo-Brown earned her second straight Big 12 Coach of the Year honor.

The two titles gave the Mountaineers three conference tournament titles in four seasons (one Big 12, two Big East), and six conference titles in four seasons.

The Streak Continues The Mountaineers qualified for the 2013 NCAA Tournament with the Big 12 Conference’s automatic bid, earning the team its 14th straight qualification, the nation’s ninth-longest active streak. WVU needed penalty kicks to move past Rutgers in the first round. Locked in a 0-0 draw after 110 minutes of action at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium on Nov. 16, the Mountaineers earned a 3-0 edge in PKs and moved past the Scarlet Knights in front of a season-high home crowd of 1,610. Sara Keane made seven saves for her fourth straight shutout and 10th clean sheet of the season. The result was WVU’s first NCAA Tournament match decided by a penalty-kick shootout. WVU is 3-2 in all-time PK shootouts. Playing in the second round for the first time since 2010 and the ninth time in program history, WVU saw its season conclude with a 1-0 loss at No. 4-ranked Virginia Tech, one of the tournament’s four No. 1 seeds, on Nov. 22.

Title Defense

Seeded No. 1, WVU made quick work of its first opponent, defeating Kansas, 3-0, on Nov. 6, at Swope Soccer Village, in Kansas City, Missouri. Goals did not come as easily against No. 5 seed Baylor on Nov. 8, but the Mountaineers only needed one, and a free kick from Frances Silva in the 52nd minute sent WVU to its first Big 12 Soccer Tournament championship match. Relatively unchallenged in the first two games, goalkeeper Sara Keane proved to be the difference against No. 6 seed Oklahoma State on Nov. 10, as she made a career-high nine saves, including five during a first-half Cowgirl offensive onslaught, to deliver the Mountaineers their second conference trophy in three weeks. Two freshmen combined for the team’s game-winner. Defender Carly Black lofted a ball toward the far right post in the 72nd minute, and midfielder Ashley Lawrence chased it down before sending a high kick just above the head and through the outstretched hands of OSU’s goalkeeper for the first game-winner of her Mountaineer career. With the victory, WVU earned the Big 12’s automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Championships.

WVU was the first program to win the offensive and defensive player of the year awards in the same season. Prior to the defensive recognition’s debut in 2007, only Colorado (2003) had swept the individual honors outright. Silva was the fifth Mountaineer to earn an offensive player of the year award and the first since 2007. Buchanan’s defender of the year award was the second straight honor for a Mountaineer, as Bry McCarthy was honored in 2012. Buchanan was the team’s fourth newcomer of the year honoree and first since 2011. Izzo-Brown’s honor was the fourth conference award of her career. Silva, Buchanan, Kate Schwindel and Ashley Lawrence were named to the All-Big 12 First Team, while Amanda Hill landed on the second team, Buchanan, Lawrence and Carly Black were named to the All-Big 12 Newcomer Team. The eight All-Big 12 honors were a conferencebest total.

Four Mountaineers landed on the All-Big 12 Tournament Team, the first-ever honors for the program. Silva was named the Offensive MVP, and Kadeisha Buchanan was named Defensive MVP. Keane and Lawrence also earned a spot on the squad.

WVU opened its 2013 Big 12 Conference season with seven straight victories, pushing its all-time Big 12 unbeaten record to 14-0-1 before a season-ending 2-0 loss at No. 7 Texas Tech on Oct. 27. The Mountaineers captured their second straight conference regular-season title with a 2-1 double-overtime victory at Oklahoma on Oct. 25. Following a scoreless first half, the Sooners grabbed the advantage in the 64th minute. A fantastic assist from Amanda Hill set-up Frances Silva’s match-tying goal in the 80th minute. WVU needed only two minutes in the second overtime to clinch the win and the title, as Silva sent a ball to a streaking Kate Schwindel, who sent the shot past the keeper for the victory.

Forward Ashley Lawrence scored the game-winning goal against Oklahoma State to deliver WVU its first Big 12 Soccer Tournament title.


Silva Etches Name in Record Book Senior forward Frances Silva enjoyed one of the most prolific final seasons with the Mountaineers in program history, as the Overland Park, Kan., native collected multiple national and conference awards and nominations and scribbled her name throughout the team’s record book. Silva, the unanimous Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Year, led the conference in goals (15), assists (13) and points (43). Her totals ranked No. 23, No. 7 and No. 10, respectively, in the NCAA. A member of the All-Big 12 First Team and the All-Big 12 Tournament Team, as well as the Tournament’s Offensive MVP, Silva also was named to the NSCAA/Continental Tire All-America Second Team. Additionally, she was one of 15 semifinalist for the 2013 M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, a candidate for the Senior Class Award and a 2013 Soccer America MVP Second Team. Just as strong in the classroom, Silva was named the Big 12 Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She also was named the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America of the Year and to the NSCAA Women’s Scholar AllAmerica First Team.

The three first-team honors matched the program high, set in 2007, while the four total selections were the second-best showing in program history. WVU has earned 19 NSCAA All-Region First Team honors under Izzo-Brown. Each of the first-team selections were there first career awards for the trio; Schwindel was named to the second team in 2012, too.

All-America Talent

Izzo-Brown’s honor was the fourth of her career and first since 2007.

Forward Frances Silva and defender Kadeisha Buchanan were named to the 2013 National Soccer Association of America (NSCAA)/Continental Tire All-America Second Team. The first career honor for the duo, they were the first Mountaineers to earn second-team recognition since Carolyn Blank scored consecutive honors in 2008 and 2009. It was the fourth time in program history multiple Mountaineers earned NSCAA All-America honors in the same season, and the first time since 2008 that more than one student-athlete garnered the award. Additionally, Buchanan was the first Mountaineer rookie to earn NSCAA All-America honors. In total, coach Nikki Izzo-Brown has coached 11 players to 15 NSCAA All-America honors in 18 seasons.

Regional Recognition Four Mountaineers, along with coach Nikki Izzo-Brown, earned NSCAA/Continental Tire All-Region Honors. Forward Frances Silva, midfielder Ashley Lawrence and defender Kadeisha Buchanan were named to the AllCentral Region First Team, while forward Kate Schwindel was named to the second team. Additionally, Izzo-Brown was named the Central Region Coach of the Year.

On the academic side, Silva was named to the NSCAA Scholar All-East Region First Team, while goalkeeper Sara Keane and defender Jess Crowder earned honorable mention honors.

Keeping Rank The Mountaineers finished the 2013 season ranked No. 8 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 25 Rankings and No. 12 in the NSCAA/Continental Tire College Rankings. The team was the highest ranked Big 12 Conference squad in both polls. WVU twice was ranked a seasonbest No. 7 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com Rankings. The final ranking in the coaches’ poll was the squad’s highest postseason finish since placing seventh in 2007. The team last earned a spot in the NSCAA Postseason Rankings in 2011 and was ranked No. 18. After receiving votes in the 2013 preseason poll and the Aug. 27 poll, WVU entered the coaches’ rankings on Sept. 3 at No. 19 and did not fall out of the poll for the remainder of the season. The Mountaineers were ranked as high as No. 9 on Oct. 22.

2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

A Blueprint for Success A 12-Year Plan When Nikki Izzo-Brown was hired as the first women’s soccer coach at West Virginia University in the fall of 1995, her eyes glistened with visions for the future of Mountaineer women’s soccer. In four seasons, having had one complete recruiting class come to fruition, she thought West Virginia could make the coveted NCAA tournament. In five years, she anticipated the Mountaineers would be contending for a Big East championship. Her vision was nearly prophetic. It took five years for the Mountaineers to make their first appearance in the NCAA tournament and six for WVU to earn a spot in the Big East championship match. Then in 2007, 12 years into its existence, West Virginia won its first Big East tournament and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight. With 12 years in the books, the history of West Virginia women’s soccer was by no means lengthy, but it is certainly storied. Women’s soccer was born at West Virginia on March 1, 1995, when WVU Director of Athletics Ed Pastilong announced that the sport would be added for the 1996 season. Later that year, on Aug. 3, Izzo-Brown was asked to take the reins and develop the West Virginia women’s soccer program. Having spent the past two seasons at Division II West Virginia Wesleyan, first as an assistant, but eventually as the head coach, it was a challenge she was eager to accept. “When I first came to West Virginia,” Izzo-Brown said, “I felt that the combination of athletic tradition at WVU and athletic department support for the program would bring nothing but success. “I thought that the Big East was a soccer conference and that we could build a program at West Virginia that would be successful on a yearly basis.” Success came early and often in Izzo-Brown’s first year at WVU, despite the fact that the Big East preseason coaches poll tabbed the Mountaineers as potential last place finishers. Although the Mountaineers lost their inaugural match 3-0 at Rutgers, they rebounded to beat Providence 4-0 in their first home match in front of 2,000 fans at Mountaineer Field. West Virginia would win nine more games in its inaugural season, four of which were Big East matches, en route to a final 10-7-2 record that assured Izzo-Brown her first winning season as a Division I coach.

The 2003 Mountaineers celebrate a goal.

At the Big East awards banquet that November, Mountaineer defender Stacey Sollmann was named to the conference’s all-rookie team, making her the first women’s soccer player in West Virginia history to earn postseason honors. In 1997, the Mountaineer Soccer Complex opened and after one season as a varsity sport, the women’s soccer team had a field of its own. The Mountaineers won their first match at the new stadium, defeating Duquesne, 1-0, in the second game of the season. West Virginia boasted a 7-2-1 record in front of home crowds in 1997 before finishing the season 11-6-2 and in fifth place in the Big East. West Virginia went 11-6-2 for the second-straight season and earned its first postseason berth in 1998. The Mountaineers defeated conference rival Pitt, 2-0, in the last game of the regular season to earn a spot in the Big East tournament. The season would end there, however, as Notre Dame upended WVU, 5-0. West Virginia earned a 9-9-1 record in 1999 before having a breakout season in 2000. That year, the Mountaineers won 15 games and saw the emergence of a star player. Katie Barnes, a junior forward from Mason, Ohio, claimed the spotlight, as she led the Mountaineers in nearly every offensive category throughout the season. She finished the year with 17 goals and nine assists for a school record 43 points. For her outstanding efforts that season, Barnes was named Big East Offensive Player of the Year, making her the first West Virginia women’s soccer player to earn a major conference award. Barnes also became West Virginia’s first All-American in 2000, a Soccer Buzz third-team selection.

On September 20, West Virginia appeared in the Top 25 of a major national poll for the first time. After opening the season 7-1, the Mountaineers were the 24th-ranked team in the country according to Soccer Buzz as they headed into conference play. West Virginia split its conference matches, going an even 3-3 during the regular season. After a one-year hiatus from the Big East tournament, the Mountaineers faced off against the Connecticut Huskies in the first round. WVU was unable to score a goal in the match, however, and Connecticut advanced to the semifinal round with a 1-0 win. Because of its regular season success, however, West Virginia earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. WVU traveled to Richmond for a first-round match against the Spiders. Richmond emerged victorious, defeating the Mountaineers 5-1. At the season’s end, Izzo-Brown was named region coach of the year by the NSCAA. In addition to the accolades earned by Barnes and Izzo-Brown in 2000, midfielders Lisa Stoia and Rachel Kruze earned all-Mid-Atlantic region honors as well. Stoia also was named Big East co-Rookie of the Year for her play as a freshman. In her first season as a Mountaineer, Stoia developed into a deadly play-maker from the center of the field. Over the course of the season, she assisted on six of the team’s 39 goals, while Kruze, a sophomore, complemented Stoia in the midfield, adding six more assists. Building on the success of the previous season, West Virginia continued its winning ways in 2001. With Barnes leading the way, the Mountaineers again


The loss was devastating, but not quite as shocking as falling to Miami (Ohio) in the first round of that season’s NCAA tournament. Hosting the first and second rounds at the Mountaineer Soccer Complex, West Virginia took on the Redhawks in the first round and was defeated 1-0 on a penalty kick. West Virginia finished the season 15-5-1. Postseason honors were abundant that year as Barnes earned her second-consecutive conference offensive player of the year award and Izzo-Brown was named Big East Coach of the Year. For the second-straight season, Barnes was named All-American, earning first-team honors from the NSCAA and second-team

The Mountaineers defeated Rutgers, 3-2, in the semifinal match and advanced to the championship match for the second straight year, this time against Connecticut. The end result was the same, however, as WVU was edged by the Huskies, 1-0, on a penalty kick. Once again, hosting the NCAA tournament in Morgantown, West Virginia faced Loyola (Md.) in first-round action. The Mountaineers scored three goals, defeating Loyola, 3-0, to earn their first-ever NCAA tournament victory. WVU’s season ended in the next round, however, when it fell to Virginia, 1-0. Picking up where former teammate Katie Barnes left off, junior forward Chrissie Abbott had a record breaking season in 2002. The North Olmstead, Ohio,

Led by Abbott and Stoia, the 2003 Mountaineers again made history. Going 17-4-2, West Virginia notched key road wins over Connecticut, its firstever over the Huskies at Morrone Stadium, and SEC-power Tennessee, and earned a trip to the Sweet 16 for the first time ever.

MOUNTAINEER PROFILES

The Mountaineers tied the record they set the season before, logging nine-straight wins at one point during the season. WVU went 4-1-1 in conference play and faced St. John’s for the second-straight season in the Big East quarterfinal match. The Mountaineers advanced past the Red Storm, but fell short of reaching their third straight championship match when Villanova slid past WVU on penalty kicks in the semifinal. West Virginia, in the NCAA tournament for the fourth-straight year, defeated Loyola (Md.), 4-2, in the opening round and routed Ohio State, 3-0, in the second to earn the program’s first berth in the Sweet 16. In Morgantown, the Mountaineers drew Florida State for their Sweet 16 match. Down 2-0 at the half, WVU battled back and sent the game into overtime at 2-2. With under 30 seconds remaining in the second overtime, the Seminoles broke the West Virginia defense for the game-winning score. At the season’s end, WVU had its first-ever Hermann Trophy nominee in Abbott and both she and Stoia had firmly planted themselves as two of the greatest to ever don the Old Gold and Blue. Together, they rewrote the record books and helped to build a national powerhouse with each game they played. Abbott graduated as WVU’s all-time leader in goals scored, points and shots leader, while Stoia grabbed the school’s all-time assist record. Both were AllAmericans in 2003, and together they set the West Virginia mark for games played and games started, each starting 87 matches in their careers.

2014 SEASON

The Mountaineers entered their third consecutive Big East tournament having shut out their last six opponents. Facing St. John’s in the quarterfinal match, West Virginia extended its shutout streak to seven with a 4-0 win over the Red Storm.

The 2002 season saw the Mountaineers attain their highest national ranking ever, No. 4 by Soccer Buzz, a spot West Virginia held for two-straight weeks at the close of the regular season.

2013 SEASON

With the victory, the Mountaineers advanced to the Big East championship, another first for the program. Playing against Notre Dame, WVU was down 1-0 early, but tied the match on a goal by Barnes in the 15th minute. For the next 60 minutes, the two squads battled evenly before Notre Dame’s Randi Scheller scored the game-winner to give the Fighting Irish the Big East title.

Nikki Izzo-Brown was once again named Big East Coach of the Year as well as Soccer Buzz and NSCAA regional coach of the year, while Stoia earned Big East Midfielder of the Year honors.

RECORD BOOK

At the 29:03 mark, West Virginia sophomore Chrissie Abbott, on an assist from Stoia, beat UConn goalkeeper Shanna Caldwell to give the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead. It would be the only goal scored in the match as WVU held on for its first-ever win over Connecticut.

With the taste of unfinished business laying sourly in their mouths, the Mountaineers set out in 2002 with something to prove. For years, it seemed, they were right there, in and out of games with soccer powerhouses. For the previous three seasons, West Virginia had suffered one-goal losses to teams the caliber of Connecticut, Notre Dame and Virginia. In 2002, that all changed. The Mountaineers racked up a nine-game win streak and an 18-match unbeaten streak on their way to the program’s first-ever regular season title. Going 5-0-1 in conference play, the Mountaineers notched the program’s first victory, 3-0, over rival Notre Dame on Oct. 6, at the Mountaineer Soccer Complex. Earlier in the season, West Virginia won at 10th-ranked Virginia, 2-1, to earn WVU’s first victory over a Top 10 program.

native scored 20 goals and dished out seven assists for 47 points, breaking the previous records set by Barnes in 2000. She was named Big East Offensive Player of the Year, a first team All-American by both the NSCAA and Soccer Buzz and was a finalist for Soccer Buzz’s Player of the Year award. Additionally, Abbott was named one of Soccer America’s 11 most valuable players of 2002.

WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY

Having defeated Miami in the quarterfinal round of the Big East tournament, West Virginia advanced to the semifinals for the first time in program history. Waiting for them there were the Huskies. A traditional conference and national soccer power, Connecticut owned a 6-0-0 all-time record against the Mountaineers.

going 7-0-0, but played the majority of its games on the road, where they battled fatigue and unfamiliar surroundings en route to a 12-6-3 final mark. The Mountaineers found success in Big East competition, narrowly missing a spot in the conference championship match after falling 1-0 to Connecticut with minutes left in the second overtime period. But, a sixth-straight trip to the NCAA tournament awaited. WVU downed Hofstra in the first round, giving junior goalkeeper Lana Bannerman the career shutouts record with a 3-0 victory before falling to Final-Four participant Penn State in the second round. WVU’s 2007 team advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight.

Laura Kane, the Mountaineers posted their fifthstraight 15-win season and earned a fifth-consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament as well. The 2004 season was highlighted by total team play. Injuries seemed to be a consistent theme throughout the year, yet somehow a different Mountaineer always rose to the challenge and helped bring her team to victory. For the first time since 1999, the Big East wasn’t broken into divisions and the Mountaineers went 7-4-0 in league play before finishing the year with a 15-6-0 record. WVU was sent to Texas for the 2005 NCAA tournament and faced teams from the Big 12 and Sunbelt Conferences for the first time in school history. West Virginia downed Southern Methodist, 2-1, in the opening round and fell to Texas, 2-1, to close out its ninth season of collegiate competition. Freshman Ashley Banks emerged as the most productive freshman in WVU history, notching more goals, assists and points than any newcomer before her. At the season’s end she became the second Mountaineer to earn Big East Rookie of the Year honors (Lisa Stoia, 2000).

Individual accolades were once again abundant with five being named to an all-conference team (Marisa Kanela - first team; Ashley Banks and Amanda Cicchini - second team; Lana Bannerman and Kambria Riggins - third team). Kanela, Cicchini and Riggins also earned all-region honors from Soccer Buzz and the NSCAA. Cicchini also claimed Freshman All-America recognition from Soccer Buzz. Izzo-Brown’s 11th season running the program in 2006 saw a youthful Mountaineer squad with just two seniors go 14-4-3 and win the Big East American Division title. WVU picked up a key road win at No. 7 Penn State on its way to an 8-0-2 start. Sophomore forward Deana Everrett, a Soccer Buzz third team AllAmerican, emerged onto the scene and led the league in scoring through the regular season on a team that set the school record for goals with 55. West Virginia rolled to an 8-2-1 league record and advanced to the Big East semifinals before making its seventh consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in November.

honors and three players earned All-America accolades. Forward Ashley Banks was a finalist for the 2007 Soccer Buzz National Player of the Year and a semifinalist for the prestigious Hermann Trophy. The forward’s 15 goals and 38 points as a senior were the most-ever by a senior women’s soccer player. She graduated with rankings in the top five all-time in three major offensive categories – 34 goals (3rd), 26 assists (3rd) and 94 points (3rd). Banks collected numerous honors, including Soccer Buzz second team All-America, NSCAA third team All-America, first team all-Big East, the Big East co-Offensive Player of the Year, an NSCAA Scholar All-American and an ESPN The Magazine first team Academic All-American. Defender Greer Barnes helped the Mountaineer defense tie a school record with 13 shutouts. She became the first defender in school history to earn first team all-Big East honors and was named a second team NSCAA All-American. Amanda Cicchini, a two-time NSCAA all-region selection, was awarded second team NSCAA AllAmerica honors and first team all-Big East as a junior. The three-time all-league midfielder was also named to the all-tournament team at the 2007 Big East Championship. Since the program’s birth in 1996, the Mountaineers have had 18 consecutive non-losing seasons, and with a coaching staff that consistently recruits some of the nation’s top soccer talent, the years that continue to go by will continue to write their own story.

The Mountaineers produced the finest season in school history in 2007, winning both the Big East regular season and tournament titles, and advancing to the NCAA Elite Eight. Soccer Buzz and NSCAA regional coach of the year Izzo-Brown guided six Mountaineers to all-conference

Junior Marisa Kanela and senior Ashley Weimer joined the freshman on the all-conference second-team. Kane was named first team all-Big East and became the Mountaineers’ fourth All-American in four years when the NSCAA named her a third-team honoree. Additionally, both her and Weimer were named Scholar All-Americans. A streak that began in September of 2002 ran 29 consecutive weeks until Nov. 1, 2004, and saw West Virginia ranked in the national Top 25 for nearly three complete seasons. The toughest schedule in program history awaited the Mountaineers in 2005, and at the season’s end, West Virginia had played six ranked teams in 19 matches, including eventual national champion Portland. WVU went undefeated at home for the second time,

West Virginia’s first women’s soccer All-American, Katie Barnes rewrote the Mountaineer record book during her tenure at WVU.

That season, Barnes scored 17 goals and added nine assists for a 43-point season. At the time, no women’s soccer player boasted better seasonal numbers. The forward was a two-time Big East Offensive Player of the Year, earning the honor in 2000 and 2001, as well as a member of the US U-21 National Team that won three consecutive Nordic Cups. On February 11, 2002, Barnes became the first West Virginia women’s soccer player to be drafted by the WUSA when she was selected in the second round as the ninth overall pick by the Carolina Courage.

Along with teammate Lisa Stoia, Abbott was a 2003 member of the U-21 National Team Pool and a member of a select group of collegians invited to train with WUSA teams during the summer of 2003. She spent her summer training with both the Philadelphia Charge and the Carolina Courage.

2014 WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S SOCCER GUIDE

Deana EVERRETT

2006 Soccer Buzz Third Team All-American

Amanda CICCHINI

2007 Soccer America First Team College MVP 2007 NSCAA Second Team All-American 2007 Soccer Buzz Third Team All-American

After seeing her playing time increase as a freshman, Deana Everrett had a breakout sophomore season in 2006 to earn third team All-America honors from Soccer Buzz.

Amanda Cicchini, an Oakville, Ontario, native, was a four-year starter at midfield, appearing in 89 career matches, more than any other player in school history. The 5-foot-2 playmaker was listed on the Hermann Trophy Watch List for three seasons.

The Oakville, Ontario, native put together the second greatest scoring season in school history with 18 goals and seven assists for 43 points. She was an all-Big East first team selection after leading the league in goals and points through the regular season. She was also named Soccer Buzz first team all-Mid-Atlantic Region and second team all-Mid-Atlantic Region by the NSCAA.

Cicchini’s best season came in 2007 where she finished with eight points on four assists and two goals on WVU’s Big East championship squad. The central midfielder was outstanding in controlling the tempo of play while working end line to end line. A two-time NSCAA first team all-Region selection, Cicchini was named first team all-Big East three times in her career. As a junior, she earned All-America honors from Soccer America, the NSCAA and Soccer Buzz.

Everrett, who was eventually named to the Hermann Trophy watch list, ranked in the top five in the nation in goals scored all season as she led a Mountaineer squad that scored a school record 55 goals in 2006. A two-time Big East Offensive Player of the Week, the 5-foot-5 sophomore’s best game of the year came at DePaul, where she tied a school record for goals in a match with three, all in the first half. Everrett closed out her career as one of the finest offensive players, exiting after the 2008 season with 39 goals (third all-time), 24 assists (fourth all-time), 102 points (third all-time) and 299 shots (third all-time) in 84 career matches.

Named to the 2007 Hermann Trophy Watch List, Cicchini scored goals in the season opener against Bowling Green and at Big East foe Pitt. Great on the ball, she served assists against Penn State, Villanova and Wake Forest. The three-time all-league midfielder was also named to the all-tournament team at the 2007 Big East Championship.

Greer BARNES Ashley BANKS

2007 Soccer Buzz Second Team All-American 2007 NSCAA Third Team All-American

Ashley Banks turned in the finest senior season in school history. The four-year letterwinner and 2007 team captain, guided the Mountaineers to a Big East championship and a berth in the NCAA tournament’s Elite Eight in 2007. The Mountaineers posted an 18-5-2 record, tying the school’s mark for most wins in a season. The Annandale, Va., native led WVU with 38 points and 15 goals en route to being named the Big East’s Offensive Player of the Year and a first team all-conference selection. The Hermann Trophy semifinalist and Soccer Buzz National Player of the Year finalist was also named an ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American and NSCAA Scholar All-American. The forward left WVU ranked in the top five all-time in three major offensive categories – 34 goals (3rd), 26 assists (3rd) and 94 points (3rd).

2008 Soccer America Second Team College MVP 2008 Soccer Buzz Second Team All-American 2008 NSCAA Third Team All-American 2007 Soccer Buzz Second Team All-American 2007 NSCAA Second Team All-American Greer Barnes turned in the finest season by a Mountaineer defender in school history in 2008. She logged the most minutes of any player while starting all 23 games at outside back. A first team All-Big East performer, she earned Soccer America second team MVP, Soccer Buzz second team All-America and NSCAA third team All-America honors as a senior. Barnes and the WVU defense allowed only four goals in 11 conference games in 2008 – the fewest by any Big East team in either division. A Hermann Trophy Watch List pick, she earned multiple conference and national player of the week honors in helping the Mountaineers post 13 shutouts. In 2007, the Rye, N.Y., native, started all 25 games at outside defender, helping the Mountaineer defense tie a school record with 13 shutouts. Barnes became the first defender in school history to earn first team all-Big East honors and was a first team all-Region choice. She and the WVU defense allowed only two goals in seven postseason games as West Virginia advanced to its first NCAA Elite Eight. Barnes successfully made the move from central midfield to defender in 2007 and was named a second team NSCAA All-American. The three-time all-Big East selection kept teams off balance with her ability to make runs forward as an offensive threat. A member of the all-tournament team at the 2007 Big East Championship, Barnes appeared in 82 career matches.


An NSCAA first team all-Northeast region and all-Big East first team selection, Blank scored the fastest goal in WVU’s NCAA tournament history, coming at the 1:29 mark against Loyola (Md.). She finished the season with nine points on four goals and one assist. Blank became the school’s second Big East Midfielder of the Year following a stellar junior campaign in 2008. A defensive center mid, Blank started all 23 matches, registering five goals and two assists, including two-game winners. A first team all-Big East selection, the Toms River, N.J., native earned second team All-America honors from the NSCAA and Soccer Buzz. Named the team’s MVP for the second-consecutive season, Blank earned all-tournament team recognition at the Notre Dame Inn at St. Mary’s Classic and the Big East Championship. Blank was aggressive in the attack, attempting 71 shots, second-most on the team. But perhaps most impressive was the leadership she provided to her teammates. Despite a talented eight-member senior class in 2008, it was Blank who earned team captain stripes. She was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 Women’s Professional Soccer Draft by the St. Louis Athletica.

MOUNTAINEER PROFILES

Carolyn Blank earned her second consecutive NSCAA second team All-America honor in 2009, helping a young West Virginia team advance to a 10th-straight NCAA tournament. As a senior, Blank became the school’s all-time leader in matches played (92) and matches started (92). The two-time team captain earned Team MVP honors in three-straight seasons to finish her career with 33 points on 13 goals and seven assists.

2013 NSCAA Second Team All-American

The first Mountaineer rookie to earn NSCAA All-America honors, Kadeisha Buchanan was selected to the 2013 NSCAA All-America Second Team following a fantastic freshman campaign that saw her earn conference honors and solidify her spot as one to watch.

Oliver Luck, Director of Athletics As Director of Athletics at West Virginia University, Oliver Luck has worked endlessly and traveled the world to enhance the Mountaineers’ role as a major player in collegiate athletics.

Before 2014, his previous three years at WVU were equally impressive and busy. He has hired new coaches to bolster WVU’s level of success. He guided the completion of major capital projects such as the $25 million WVU basketball practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball and the women’s soccer training complex. He led WVU into the Big 12 Conference, presided over the best fundraising year in school history (2012), implemented several safety and crowd enhancements at Mountaineer sporting events, increased overall department revenue, continued a master plan for facility upgrades and watched his football program gain its third BCS bowl victory. In 2013, Luck oversaw the reseating of the WVU Coliseum to further increase WVU’s fundraising efforts. He added an 18th varsity sport - men’s golf,

Luck, was appointed the University’s 11th Director of Athletics on June 9, 2010 and he was no stranger to success. In fact, Luck’s athletic and professional career has been the epitome of success, first as a record-setting quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1978-81, then as a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, and later as a professional sports executive. After retiring from football, Luck became vice president of business development for the NFL and later was appointed general manager of the Frankfurt Galaxy of the newly created World League of American Football. He spent the ’95 season as general manager of the Rhein Fire before being named President and CEO of NFL Europe in 1996. Luck totaled more than 10 years with the NFL, before becoming chief executive officer of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority in 2001. In that role, Luck oversaw the development and management of a $1 billion professional sports and entertainment complex for the city of Houston that included Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets.

In 2005, Luck was appointed as the first president of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamos, helping that organization to a pair of MLS Cup titles in his first two years at the helm. Luck secured the funding for an $80 million soccer complex to house the Dynamos when the call came to return to his alma mater. BBVA Compass Stadium was built and opened in 2012 adding to Luck’s legacy with the professional soccer team, and the overall Houston sports facility complexes. He returned to Houston in May, 2012 for the opening ceremony of the soccer stadium that he fought so hard for.
