Van Horn Named ODAC Coach Of The Year; Stump Earns First-Team All-Conference Recognition

FOREST, Va. – Bridgewater College's Mike Van Horn was named ODAC Coach of the Year and defender Elizabeth Stump was named to the All-ODAC first team released today by the conference office.

Van Horn led the Eagles to a 12-7-2 overall record and the program's first-ever appearance in the ODAC Championship game. Bridgewater advanced past Roanoke on penalty kicks in the first round of the conference tournament. In the semifinals, the Eagles handed Virginia Wesleyan, the nation's third ranked team, its first loss of the season to advance to the championship game. Bridgewater lost to Lynchburg, the nation's seventh-ranked team, 2-0, in the title game.

Stump was named to the first-team as one of four defenders. Stump was an anchor in the back row for the Eagles and was also named to the ODAC All-Tournament team. She scored one goal during the season. Stump is just the second player in program history to be recognized on the all-conference first team. Goalkeeper Julianne Blevins earned a first-team honor following the 2002 season.

Three Eagles – junior Melanie Waters, senior Abby Dehoff and sophomore Anna Theisen – were named to the All-ODAC second team.

Waters was named to the second team for the third straight season. She led the Eagles in scoring this season with 27 points on 11 goals and five assists. Waters scored the game-winning goal against No. 3 Virginia Wesleyan in the conference semifinals. She was also named to the ODAC All-Tournament team.

Theisen is a also a repeat selection on the second team. The sophomore midfielder finished the season with two goals and three assists.

Dehoff capped a solid career at BC with her second-team selection. She scored 17 points on seven goals and three assists this season. Dehoff was an All-ODAC honorable mention choice in 2010.

Bridgewater also placed two players, freshman Ashley Crossman and senior Krissy Snyder, on the All-ODAC third team.

Crossman joined Stump on the back line as part of a solid defensive unit. She also got involved on offense and scored three goals. Crossman was just one of four freshmen earning All-ODAC honors this season.

Snyder capped her career with a solid season as she scored 19 points on eight goals and three assists.
