May 16, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Indiana - Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced that women's soccer head coach Amy Berbary has signed a 5-year contract extension that runs through the end of the 2018 season.
"Amy and her staff did a fantastic job in leading the program to an NCAA Tournament berth and I am thrilled that she will be the leader of our program for several years to come," said Glass. "We have a strong commitment to women's soccer and Amy's leadership was paramount to our program competing successfully in the Big Ten and national level. She does a fabulous job with her student-athletes on and off the field."
Berbary, who will be entering her second year as the Hoosiers head coach in 2014, guided Indiana to its first appearance in the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments since 2007. The team advanced to the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament and then defeated DePaul at Bill Armstrong Stadium in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
"I would like to thank director of athletics Fred Glass, Julie Cromer and Kelly Noonan for their support and belief in myself and the entire staff we have at Indiana," Berbary said. "We will continue to work tirelessly to develop our current players, recruit the best talent in the state of Indiana, and around the country, in order to build and elevate this program to sustained national prominence. My staff and I are proud to be Hoosiers and I speak for all of us when I say how proud we are of the current players and their commitment to make the necessary sacrifices that develop a culture of winning. We are thrilled with what we have been able to accomplish in the first 15 months here and look forward to the coming years."
The Hoosiers set single-season school records in wins (15), goals (43), assists (46) and shutouts (9) during the 2013 season. Lisa Nouanesengsy was the fourth player in program history to receive First Team All-Region and was also named Second Team All-Big Ten, helping IU to six victories in conference play and the fourth seed in the conference tournament after being picked to finish last in the preseason coaches poll.
The team had 17 players recognized on the Academic All-Big Ten team in 2013 and saw Rebecca Dreher and Shannon Flower named First Team Academic All-District.
