UD Head Womens Soccer Coach Named NSCAA West Region Coach-of-the-Year

In Head Womens Soccer Coach Angelina Panes second year of coaching at UD, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) has named her the West Region Coach-of-the-Year, an announcement made Dec. 4. Pane was one of eight Division III coaches to receive this honor for their respective regions.

Pane came to UD from Ottawa University in Kansas in March 2013. This season, she guided the Lady Crusaders to their best record in four seasons of affiliation with the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC). They went 7-4-1 and claimed the third-seed to the conference tournament, where they advanced to the semifinals before falling 1-0 to the second-seed, Texas Lutheran University.

This season differs from any other because of the young ladies, who had a special goal in mind, said Pane. The goal this season was to each day be a better team than the team who stepped on the field the day before, to leave a legacy that could be remembered for years to come. We may not have won a championship, but we experienced something much better -- what it is to care more about the people standing around us than about ourselves, to represent something much larger than ourselves. We took pride in representing the University of Dallas each day.

In two campaigns at UD, Pane has led the womens soccer team to a 17-23-1 record overall.

Receiving this award was a humbling experience, said Pane. It truly belongs to the girls I had the honor of coaching. The 2014 season is the foundation upon which our program hopes to grow. Im honored to have been part of such a special year here at UD, and I look forward to many more to come.
