Soteriades named Regional Coach of the Year

Soteriades named Regional Coach of the Year

The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) named Denison head coach P.J. Soteriades Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year on Wednesday (Dec. 7) following her efforts during the 2011 season.

For Soteriades, it is the first time she has received the NFHCA Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year honor.

Soteriades led the Big Red to an 18-2 overall record in 2011, including a regular season North Coast Athletic Conference title, the program's first NCAC Tournament championship and DU's first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 2000.  The Big Red, who were seeded eighth in the 24-team tournament, received a bye into the second round of the NCAA's before bowing out to nationally-ranked MIT.

In addition, Soteriades was named NCAC Coach of the Year for the third time in her career and saw seven of her players receive either All-Great Lakes Region or All-NCAC accolades.  Sophomore Katie McMahon was named third-team All-American and picked up first-team All-Region and first-team All-NCAC honors. 

Junior Brittany Benson also was named to the NCAC and Great Lakes Region first teams and also received the NCAC Defensive Player of the Year Award.  Benson helped the Big Red lead all of NCAA Division III field hockey in shutouts (14) and finish fourth in goals against average (0.66). 

Finally, rookie Tara Pesman, the 2011 NCAC Tournament Most Valuable Player, and senior Kelsey Flowers joined McMahon and Benson on the Great Lakes Region and NCAC first teams.

The 2011 season marked Soteriades' 12th at the helm of the Big Red field hockey program.  On Sept. 23, Denison defeated Ohio Wesleyan 2-0 in Delaware, Ohio, giving Soteriades her 101st career win at Denison and allowing her to pass Jo Rosenberger for most all-time wins.  The 18-win 2011 campaign pushed her total to 112 career wins.
