Spartan Senior Trio Departs as Winningest Class in School History
DUBUQUE, Iowa - Senior starters Katie Lynn, Kim Trinco, and Lisa Rosas helped the University of Dubuque women's soccer team compile their fourth-straight, double-digit win season after finishing 10-7-2 and claiming the sixth and final seed in the Iowa Conference tournament. The Spartans compiled a 2-4-1 record in IIAC play and were eliminated in round one of the IIAC tourney. The senior trio completed their career with a school record of 53 career wins.
Lynn and Trinco were named to the All-IIAC First team and led a group of five Spartans including Emily Meeker, Kyleigh McLaughlin, and freshman Lauren Cangelosi that were named All-Iowa Conference. It was the fourth straight year five or more Spartans were honored.
Despite losing five All-IIAC senior players from a year ago, the Spartans started off hot with a 9-2-1 record that included their first ever 1-1-1 start to a season and their first ever win over UW-La Crosse. In the week of September 22, UD ascended to a No. 24 NSCAA national ranking for the third-straight season and tied their highest-ever NSCAA regional ranking at No. 2. Defensively, the Spartans allowed a mere six goals during that opening span.
UD concluded the season 1-5-1, including a near comeback in overtime defeat at Luther, 3-2, and a 2-2, double overtime draw at No. 15 Coe.
Lynn led the Iowa Conference in shots by a wide margin with 43 shots in seven Iowa Conference games. The 2014 Honorable Mention Iowa Conference selection set the school record with 116 shots and tied for second with six game-winners, including five in the first eight games, in 2015. The Fox River Grove, Ill. native now holds the school record with 15 career game winners and 293 career shots attempted. Lynn finished with nine goals, seven assists, 25 points, 116 shots (51 on goal), and six game-winners.
Trinco was named to the 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District team for her efforts both in and out of the classroom, anchored the Spartans defensive backline after starting all 19 games, including 72 of 75 in her career. The Schaumburg, Ill. native distributed her fourth career assist in season-opening win over Carthage on September 1 in a successful non-conference slate that featured four shut outs in their first five games.
"At the end of a season you look back to the beginning to find out what you accomplished along the way," Head Coach Jason Berna said. "Even though the season did not finish as planned, we as a team accomplished a lot together in 2015 to be proud of. The University of Dubuque women's soccer program was nationally ranked for the third straight year, tied their highest regional ranking in school history, attained double-digit wins for the ninth time, and for the first time we earned double-digit wins for four straight seasons. The foundation is laid for success here and we will start planning and training for next year to continue that success. Special thanks to the three graduating seniors - they have truly helped lift this program to new heights!"

Monumental was the operative word after the Spartans captured both the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) regular season and tournament titles for the first time in program history after finishing 16-5-1, 6-1 IIAC. It was only the second time in school history any intercollegiate sports team has won both titles in the same season. The pair of titles vaulted the Spartans into the NCAA tournament where they fell in the first round, 4-2. During the season, Head Coach Jason Berna captured his 200th combined victory between his current women's tenure and his time as UD men’s head coach.
Securing the IIAC tournament title was a thrilling affair after eight saves by UD GK Tiffany Duncan and nine saves by the opposition led to a 0-0 2OT draw, decided by a combined 18 penalty kicks. After the initial five penalty kicks taken by both sides, D Kelsey Graefen and MF Alora Esparza delivered in back-to-back convert-or-go-home kicks to set up MF Melanie Prudhomme’s game winner on the 18th kick. F Katie Lynn came off the bench to score both goals in 2-1 triumph in the IIAC semifinals.
Newly turfed Oyen field saw its first women’s victory on September 6, 2-0. The victory was part of a six-game winning streak to start the season and included five shutouts and two total goals allowed. GK Duncan and the defense held true for the remainder of the season as the Spartans led the IIAC in goals allowed in conference play (5) and overall (44).
The senior laden group achieved a first-time ever no. 22 NSCAA national ranking, program-best no. 5 NSCAA regional ranking, and earned program victory no. 150 over rival Loras in 3-2 (2OT) win on October 1.
"We always talk about raising the bar each season in our program, 2014 was no different as we set very high goals to accomplish," said Head Coach Jason Berna. "Coming off a good year in 2013 and returning nine seniors we knew we had the leadership and experience to achieve each goal we set! The girls did just that, winning Conference for the first time in program history, winning our second conference tournament title, and being ranked each week of the season in the region with the highlight being the #22 spot in the nation in week three."
F Siepler’s game-winning goal on October 14 in 2-1 victory earned her the UD record for most career game-winning goals in school history (13). Siepler finished her career with the fifth-most shots on goal (89) while finishing with two first team All-IIAC honors. D Waddell matched Siepler’s first team All-IIAC honors and added a second team All-IIAC honor in 2012. D Waddell played a key role in the Spartan defense and is the only defender in school history to earn three All-IIAC awards (second team or better).
GK Duncan earned her second straight Second Team All-IIAC honor and finished her decorated career ranked Top-5 in UD history in all five major career goalkeeping categories, including record holder in goals allowed average (0.94).
The Spartan senior class boasted the best four-year record in school history (52-25-4) and for good reason. One of the most experienced groups, in any UD intercollegiate sport, featured three seniors that played over 80 career games and four that started at least 74 matches.
Academically, the University of Dubuque women's soccer team earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Team Academic Award for having above a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. The Spartans women's soccer accumulated a 3.45 team average during the 2014-15 season.
UD also received the NSCAA Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award (Bronze Award) given to 35 teams across the country, in all divisions. The recipients accumulated no more than 10 yellow cards throughout the season.
"I am so proud of the team's accomplishments this year and this will always be a special season for me personally," added Coach Berna. "We finally won it all after starting the program 14 years ago. I feel we have established this program as a consistent regional contender, while also seeing our players achieve even more in the class room. setting records for academic all-conference and all-region. I would like to specially thank our nine seniors and their families for all their support and hard work to get the program to this point! Go Spartans!"
