Coach Chris Johnson and the Jaguars women's soccer team enjoyed a banner 2009 campaign, shattering school records for victories (17-5-0), sharing the Summit League regular-season championship and capturing its first league tournament title.

A championship game win over South Dakota State earned the Jaguars the program's first NCAA Tournament bid and added the women's soccer team to the list of IUPUI programs to earn NCAA tourney berths, along with men's basketball, men's soccer, women's tennis and men's golf. The team fell to state rival Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA.

Sophomore Alicia Brock was voted the Summit's Offensive Player of the Year, while senior Stephanie Hoffman was the Defensive Player of the Year. Johnson won Coach of the Year honors for the third time in his career.

The team also learned that it earned an NSCAA Team Academic Award for its team grade-point average of 3.19 during the 2008-09 season. It's the fourth time in Johnson's tenure that the team has been so honored.
