UCLA women's soccer 2014 Sr Night

UCLA’s 2014 senior class – with only six losses over the four seasons (77–6–11) – owns the best best career win pct. (.878) among all 2014 DI women’s soccer senior classes. … pictured (standing, from left) Sarah Killion, Caprice Dydasco, Ally Courtnall, Rosie White, Megan Oyster and (kneeling, from left) Abby Dahlkemper, Kylie McCarthy, Katelyn Rowland and Sam Mewis.


(12/1/14) – Perhaps it was only fitting that the seven Division I women’s soccer programs with the winningest senior classes over the past four seasons (2011-14) remained alive in the 2014 NCAA tournament, among the eight quarterfinalist teams. And now, a Fantastic Four collection of senior classes is heading to Boca Raton for the College Cup’s final weekend.  

CollegeSoccer360.com's exclusive tracking of the winningest senior classes/4-year records in Division I women's soccer is updated below. 

All of the senior classes that lead the 2014 semifinal teams have totaled 75-plus career wins, with those four seniors classes combining to go 320–54–23 (.835) during the 2011-14 seasons:

83–14–5 (.838) – Florida State

81–9–6 (.875) – Stanford

81–13–5 (.843) – Virginia

75–18–7 (.785) – Texas A&M

Technically, one senior class that saw its career end in the quarterfinals (UCLA 77–6–11; .878) still owns the best career win pct. for 2011-14, narrowly ahead of their rivals from Stanford (.875). If Stanford closes with two wins and claims the national title, CS360 will dub it a (fitting) tie between UCLA (.87766) and Stanford (would be 83-9-6; .87755) for best win pct. over past four seasons.

Florida State’s seniors can clinch the top spot in terms of total wins by defeating Stanford in their semifinal showdown, but – prior to Friday’s games in Boca Raton – the Cardinal and Virginia (both two wins behind FSU) still could finish 2014 tied with the Seminoles for the most wins over the past four seasons.

Each of the top-seven senior classes (all of them 2014 NCAA quartefinal teams) owns their own distinction:
FLORIDA STATE (83–14–5; .838) has the most wins over the past four seasons and is reached the College Cup final weekend for the fourth straight season. … Individually, attacking midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir and center back Kristin Grubka – both four-year starters – received top honors from the ACC, respectively, as 2014 offensive and defensive players of the year.

STANFORD (81–9–6; .875) trails FSU by only two wins and the current seniors were part of the 2011 NCAA title team as freshmen. The senior group includes several veterans starters: forward Chioma Ubogagu, attacking midfielders Lo’eau LaBonta and Alex Doll, and fifth-year center back Kendall Romine.

VIRGINIA (81–13–5; .843) also could finish tied for the winningest 2014 senior class, sparked by a 46–3–2 run over the past two seasons and led by possibly the nation’s best attacking midfield duo in Morgan Brian (2013 Hermann Trophy; member of U.S. National Team) and Danielle Colaprico (2014 Academic All-American).

UCLA (77–6–11; .878) has six fewer wins that FSU but narrowly sits above Stanford (.875) for the best win pct. over the past four seasons (fewer total games than FSU/UVa, due to no Pac-12 tournament), with only six total losses from 2011-14. Before their 2-1 NCAA quarterfinal loss vs. Virginia, the Bruins were riding a 44-game unbeaten streak (39–0–5; 6th-longest in NCAA DI w-soccer history) and nine seniors were among the 11 starters for UCLA (all listed below, scroll down).
Trivia Sidenote: The six losses by UCLA from 2011-14 (three vs. Stanford): 
10/9/11: 1-4 at Stanford
10/28/12: 1-2 vs. Stanford
11/2/12: 2-3 at USC (OT)
11/23/12: 1-2 at Stanford (NCAA quarterfinal)
9/16/13: 0-1 at North Carolina
11/28/14: 1-2 vs. Virginia

PENN STATE (77–20–3; .785) totaled the same number of wins over the past four seasons as UCLA, with three 20-win seasons. As sophomores in 2012, the current seniors helped PSU reach the NCAA title game. The senior class was small (five players) but was led by the elite defender duo of Whitney Church and Kori Chapic.

• TEXAS A&M (75–18–7; .785) and FLORIDA (71–22–4; .753) … in nearly any other year, these SEC rivals would be the clearcut highlight for the deepest/most talented senior classes, but that honor of course belongs to UCLA for 2014. Nonetheless, A&M is riding back-to-back SEC Tournament titles and features eight senior starters (listed below) – ranging from all three forwards, the awesome attacking midfield duo of Kelley Monogue and Shea Groom, center back Meghan Streight and 4-year starting ‘keeper Jordan Day. … 

Florida’s group of nine seniors featured five starters, led by two more top attacking midfielders (Gaineseville native Havana Solaun, and Annie Speese), plus both outside backs in Lauren Silver and Tessa Andujar, along with another veteran ‘keeper in two-sport standout Taylor Burke (also an All-America high jumper).

 Here are the winningest senior classes re-sorted by career games over .500:
+72: Stanford  (81–9–6)
+71: UCLA
+69: Florida State
+68: Virginia
+57: Texas A&M
+57: Penn State 
+51: Stephen F. Austin
+48: Florida
