Pomona-Pitzer Women's Soccer To Host 35th Anniversary Alumni Weekend

Pomona-Pitzer Women's Soccer To Host 35th Anniversary Alumni Weekend

Claremont, Calif. - The Pomona-Pitzer Women's Soccer program will celebrate its 35th anniversary of varsity status when it hosts a special alumni weekend on October 5th, 2019.  

The program is inviting former players, coaches, and supporters to come back to Claremont to help honor the beginnings of the team and recognize the many, many people who have contributed so much along the way to help build the program over the last three and a half decades. 

The event will feature a dinner, reception and Alumni Game on October 5th.

The history of Pomona-Pitzer Women's Soccer includes many years as an organized club team, with men's soccer players often assisting as coaches in the spring. The program was elevated to varsity status in 1985 and played its first game against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, which ended in a 0-0 tie. The program began on an impressive foot, compiling a 45-6-4 record in SCIAC games from 1985-90, earning four league titles and two second-place finishes. The 2005 team earned another SCIAC crown and earned the program's first-ever NCAA Division III Tournament bid.

The Sagehens have recently seen their most successful seasons in program history including a SCIAC Tournament Championship in 2015 and a Regular Season SCIAC Championship in 2016, which included an appearance into the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament, a program best 17-1-4 overall record, 12-0-3 SCIAC record, first SCIAC school to go through the regular season unbeaten, 0 home goals allowed during the regular season and the most shutouts in a single season at 16.   

The Sagehens followed up with a regular season SCIAC Championship in 2018 and are off to their best start in program history at 8-0-1 and reached their highest ever ranking at No. 8 by the United Soccer Coaches Poll.
