[SOCCER AMERICA AWARDS] Robbie Church, who led Duke to the ACC regular-season championship and the final of the NCAA Division I Tournament with a starting lineup comprised entirely of underclassmen, is Soccer America's 2011 Women's Coach of the Year.

In his 11th season at Duke, Church led the Blue Devils to an overall record of 22-4-1. The 22 wins were a school record.

The ACC title was the second for Duke and its place in the College Cup final was its first since 1992.

Early in the season, the Blue Devils served notice that they would be contenders when they upset defending champion Notre Dame, 3-1.

Freshman sensation Kelly Cobb, recruited out of Alaska, joined five sophomores and five juniors in the regular lineup.

Duke won the ACC regular-season title with an 8-1-1 record, becoming only the second ACC team to post multiple ACC regular-season titles other than North Carolina.
