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.

How to Build a Shortwave Radio

As you know if you’ve read even some of our first UD Reads book, "All the Light We Cannot See," it’s possible to build a radio from random, scavenged parts, as long as you can find the necessary random, scavenged parts, as Werner does in the book. This is also essentially what Assistant Professor and Department Chair of Physics Jacob Moldenhauer did as well: He scavenged parts from the Physics Department, and built a radio.
