Second Soccer Season a Success

The Michigan Tech soccer team had another successful season posting a 7-9-1 overall and 5-9-1 league
record in its second season.

"I am very proud of our team's accomplishments in our second season," said head coach
Michelle Jacob. "We had an amazing finish to our season and earned significant victories against
teams we had never beaten before. We showed great growth in our game and made a slight improvement in our overall record."

The team opened the season with a pair of non-conference wins at home against Bemidji State (3-2)
and Minn.-Crookston (3-0). Five Huskies garnered points in the two wins with goals from Katie Boardman, Lindsey Van Rooy, Alyssa Hynnek and McKenzie Hengesh, who would all finish the 2011 season as the top scorers for the team. Janelle Riedl also provided an assist in the Huskies' victory.

The Huskies started the conference season posting one tie in their first four games. Despite losing three of four starting defenders to injury midway through the season, the team scored three wins over its next seven games.

The Huskies ended the season with two wins and an overtime loss in their last three games. Tech scored a school record five goals thanks in large part to a hat trick by Katie Boardman, who earned GLIAC Player of the Week honors.

The Huskies posted a 3-0 victory over Saginaw Valley State before ending the season with a 2-1
overtime loss at rival Northern Michigan.

Much of Tech's success this season was due in part to an increase in offensive production. The
Huskies scored a school record 29 goals, up from 16 the previous season and created 271 shots compared to 195 in the inaugural season. Ten different Huskies contributed to the team's 29 goals on the season.

Four players finished the season with more than 10 points, including Katie Boardman who tallied
school records in points (20), goals (seven) and assists (six).

Tech also had six players earn GLIAC All-Academic Excellence and four players earned All-Academic accolades.

"The dedication and work ethic of every player on this team gives us unlimited potential as we
prepare for our third season," said head coach Michelle Jacob. "We feel very fortunate for the
support we received from the community, university and athletics department throughout our season
and have high hopes again for next year."
