The University of La Verne soccer team looks to recapture a winning tradition that marked the decade of the 1990's, going from a squad that suffered through several sub .500 years to a team that has recorded five consecutive winning seasons and a perennial spot in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Top 25.
With consecutive recruiting classes that include several talented players, La Verne is primed to be a force in 2011 and subsequent seasons.
In 2008, the Leopards earned a spot in the SCIAC Postseason Tournament. The 2007 campaign marked the 20-year anniversary of Leopard women's soccer program, and the origins that helped cultivate a successful program are evident today.
The Leos have produced a record of winning percentage above .500 through the early 2000s, consistently earning a Top 5 ranking in the West Region. Playing a competitive schedule, La Verne travels across the country to take on the nation's best squads. Recent stops for the Leopard soccer team have included regular-season trips to Chicago and St. Louis.
Numerous Leo players have earned All-SCIAC recognition, including one conference MVP in Jacqui Zwissler (1996), the school's all-time leading scorer and 2005 ULV Hall of Fame inductee. Several players have also grabbed All-West Region accolades, most recently Falisha Ramirez in 2009.
