Coaching Staff at Game.jpgKen Lolla:
When it comes to building a soccer program into a national powerhouse, Coach Lolla has emerged as a top leader in the industry. Lolla most recently guided the University of Louisville to the 2010 NCAA College Cup Final, 2010 Big East Championship, #1 National ranking, and 20-1-3 record. Ken was named the 2010 National Coach of the Year and his staff was named the 2010 Big East Coaching Staff of the Year. Just 5 seasons earlier, Coach Lolla inherited the Cardinals program with a 5-11-2 record that had never been to the NCAA tournament.
 
Coach Lolla had much of the same success in his 13 seasons at Akron where he guided the Zips to a 160-68-25 record, established a #1 National Ranking in 2005, won eight MAC Championships, and made five straight NCAA Tournament appearances. Ken is the all-time winningest coach in the program's storied 50-year history, a four time MAC Coach of the year, and was recently inducted into the Akron Hall of Fame....

Playing from 1993-97, Sanchez earned All-Far West Region honors in 1995 and 1997.
