UCLA's Cromwell selected as Women's Coach of the Year
[SOCCER AMERICA AWARDS] Amanda Cromwell, who led UCLA to its first national championship in her first season with the
Bruins, Soccer America's 2013 Women's Coach of the Year.
Cromwell, who had previously coached at UCF, wasn't hired until mid-April after B.J. Snow
joined U.S. Soccer, which meant she had little time to work with the team in the offseason.
In its ninth trip to the Women's College Cup, UCLA beat top-ranked Florida State, 1-0, in
overtime and completed a run that included a 1-0 overtime win on the road over defending champion North Carolina in the quarterfinals and a shootout win over Virginia in the semifinals.
Perhaps the sweetest win came in the round of 16 as UCLA, which had been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament by Stanford three of the last four seasons, turned the tables on the Cardinal with a 2-0
win. The loss ended Stanford’s bid for a sixth consecutive appearance in the Women's College Cup.
With 10 of 11 starters and U.S. U-20 Lauren
Kaskie and New Zealand international Rosie White off the bench all returning in 2014, Cromwell has the Bruins well positioned to contend for another
