Women's Soccer Head Coach Sandy Dickson

Sandy Dickson

Sandy Dickson will begin her 12th season as the Huskies head coach in the fall of 2009. Only the second coach in the history of Bloomsburg University women's soccer, she was named to the position in March of 1998.

In the 2008 season, the Huskies finished at 13-5-1, and placed six players on the All- PSAC East team, and four players on the 2008 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Adidas NCAA Division II Women All-Atlantic Region team. They made their seventh trip to the PSAC playoffs, and their 7th overall trip to the NCAA Tournament.

In her first 11 seasons as head coach, Dickson has guided the Huskies to seven PSAC playoff berths, one undefeated regular season, two PSAC championships and a berth in five NCAA championships tournaments. During the 2000 season she led the Huskies to the NCAA Division II quarterfinals, while in 1998 she was named the PSAC and NSCAA Mid-Atlantic regional Coach of the Year. Her career record stands at a sparkling 120-73-21.

Dickson, who was an assistant coach at Bloomsburg for three years before taking over as head coach, is a 1994 graduate of Rutgers University. At Rutgers, she was a four-year member of the women's soccer team, serving as captain during her senior year. As a midfielder, she helped the Scarlet Knights to three Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) titles (1990-92) and a ranking of 13th in the nation in Division I.

As a high school performer, Dickson was named a regional All-American in both 1988 and 1989 and was named the 1989 New Jersey South Midfielder of the Year in addition to all-state honors.

Dickson, who holds the NSCAA National Diploma coaching license, also holds a master's degree in Exercise Science from Bloomsburg. Dickson also serves as the NSCAA National All-American Chairperson, as well as the NSCAA Atlantic Region Chairperson.
