Angelina Pane completed her second season at the helm with the University of Dallas women's soccer team, and guided the group to a 10-9-1 overall record. The team also posted its best SCAC record in the fourth year of affiliation by going 7-4-1. There was a three-game improvement in each tallied win column for the total amount of victories and those in conference.
Pane managed a squad that notched the third seed in the conference tournament, and advanced to the semifinals for the second year in a row. The season was concluded in that match by a 1-0 setback versus Texas Lutheran University.
The Lady Crusaders also set a new record this offseason with seven All-SCAC honors, which included Tri-All-SCAC Newcomer-of-the-Year, Elena Naccari. The freshman goalkeeper notched five of the team’s six shutouts. Nicole Johnson was tabbed on All-SCAC first team, while the remaining accolades went to a trio of players: Cascade Mayer, Mackenzie Vasile, and Alice Nelson on All-SCAC second team. Naccari and Kayla Nguyen received honorable mention.
This most recent season reflects the growth and hard work Coach Pane has dedicated to a Dallas squad that improved from a 7-14 record in 2013. Dallas ended their 2013 campaign with a 4-8 mark in league play, and a berth in the SCAC Championship Semifinals as the fifth seed.
The eighth head coach in program history, Pane previously spent two seasons as a graduate assistant for the Ottawa University (Kan.) women's soccer team.
From 2011-2012, she also aided the Kansas State Olympic Development Program (ODP) as a staff coach.
Pane served as a graduate assistant for Converse College (Spartanburg, S.C.) during the fall 2010 semester, and held the role of strength and conditioning volunteer assistant coach at the University of Wisconson-Milwaukee from 2008-2010.
In 2009, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology from Concordia University (Mequon, Wis.). Named team captain in her senior campaign, Pane was a four-year letterwinner (2005-2008) for the Lady Falcons.
Pane earned a Master of Arts in Education from Ottawa University in May 2013, and is certfied by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). In May 2014, Pane was credited with a USSF C License.
