The MSOE Athletic Department announced its annual post-season honors Monday afternoon the first Student Awards Celebration co-hosted by Athletics and Student Life. The luncheon honored all of the standout accomplishment of the university’s student body.
Freshman Brooke Zidek was named NACC Freshman of the Year and head coach Rolf Zersen repeated as Coach of the Year as the MSOE women’s soccer team collected nine awards when the league office announced its post-season awards Thursday.
Freshman Gabbie Hoffman scored two goals and sophomore Abbie Lorenz posted a shutout in goal to send the MSOE women’s soccer team into a third-straight NACC Championship with a 3-0 victory over Benedictine Wednesday night at Viets Field.
The MSOE women’s soccer team scored two goals in the first 15-plus minutes of the second half to pull within 3-2, but it was not enough as No. 19-ranked UW-La Crosse held on for a 4-2 victory Sunday afternoon at Viets Field.
Coming off a spectacular 2016 season, the MSOE women’s soccer knew that it had a lot of work to do to meet expectations heading into 2017.
Head coach Rolf Zersen did not bother with expectations, rather looking to grow the program in the right direction. Considering where he has taken MSOE Women’s Soccer, he’s earned the benefit of the doubt.
Freshman Brooke Zidek scored two goals to lead a four-goal output by the freshman class in the MSOE women’s soccer team’s decisive 4-0 victory over Wisconsin Lutheran Saturday afternoon at Viets Field.
Baseball was the first sport offered by MSOE in the current era of intercollegiate athletics. Then, in the spring of 1976, golf got its start. Forty-one years later, the man who led that first golf squad into action is still going strong as head coach of the Raiders.
