ALFRED, N.Y. – Ithaca College women's soccer head coach, Mindy Quigg, became just the 15th active coach in Division III women's soccer history to win 300 games on Wednesday as the Bombers tied a season-high with six goals and defeated Alfred, 6-0, at Yunevich Stadium. The win moves Ithaca's season record to 4-3 and 1-0 in Empire 8 play while the Saxons slip to 1-6-1 overall and 0-1 in conference competition.
Now in her 22nd season at the helm, Quigg has amassed a career mark of 300-92-46 and is tied for 14th all-time among active coaches in career wins and 22nd in winning percentage (.741). Under Quigg's guidance, Ithaca has never had a losing season, advancing to the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship 18 times including two trips to the national semifinals.
A five-time Empire 8 Coach of the Year recipient, Quigg is the program's all-time winningest coach.
After taking a 2-0 lead in the two goal lead into halftime on the strength of goals from Kelsey King and Jocelyn Ravesi, the Bombers (4-3) would go on to net four more goals in the second half.
Holly Niemiec staked Ithaca to a 3-0 lead after scoring her third goal of the season on a feed from King. The duo would team up again minutes later when Niemiec found King with a crossing pass that found its mark to stretch Ithaca's advantage to 4-0.
Savannah Brija and Sam Robinson each found the back of the net in the win with Shoshana Bedrosian and Mackenzie Hinchliffe each earning an assist.
Beth Coppolecchia earned her fourth win in goal after playing 80 minutes in cage.
Ithaca will return to play at 12 p.m. on Saturday when it hosts Stevens Institute of Technology in an Empire 8 conference contest at Carp Wood Field.
