The Press Coach of the Year

Kathy Snyder, Southern Regional

Snyder had a big rebuilding job this spring, with only Elyse Broderick and two goalies back from the 2010 team. The Rams were 11-6-2 this fall with an impressive defense, and finished second to Toms River East in the Shore Conference A South.

Southern made a good run in the South Jersey Group IV playoffs, upsetting Egg Harbor Township 2-1 in the quarterfinals. The sixth-seeded Rams lost 2-1 in the semifinals to No. 2 Shawnee, The Press Elite 11's sixth-ranked team. The Renegades scored the winning goal in the final 2 minutes, 40 seconds of regulation.

"I knew we had talented kids," Snyder said "They played all summer and improved. The kids did a terrific job this year and showed a lot of character. I was proud of the way they reacted, and it was nice to end like that because we have almost everyone back next year."
