Penn State head women's soccer coach Erica Walsh has been named NCAA Division I Coach of the Year by Soccer America, it was announced on Tuesday. Walsh led the Nittany Lions to their 15th straight Big Ten regular season title and its first appearance in the NCAA Division I Tournament final. Penn State survived a brutal non-conference schedule that included two No. 1 seeds and one No. 2 NCAA Tournament seed early in the season and overcame many obstacles along the way to finish with a 21-4-2 record.

Additionally, six Big Ten student-athletes earned individual accolades from Soccer America. Michigan's Haley Kopmeyer and Penn State's Christine Nairn were named to the MVP first team, while the Nittany Lions' Maya Hayes and Illinois' Vanessa DiBernardo were second team MVP selections. Penn State's Raquel Rodriguez and Mallory Weber were awarded All-Freshman first team recognition.
