Coach Recruiting Interview

Virginia Tech was crowned the SELC champions this year, after defeating the resurgent Liberty University Flames in a 13-9 match. The Hokies went 15-4 under their first year head coach and Maryland native Matthew Schroeder, while three players received SELC 1st Team All-Conference honors. VT shocked the MCLA with a first round upset over BYU in the national tournament, 11-6. The SELC champs are adding a great recruiting class of incoming freshman and transfers next year as they look to bring a national title to Blacksburg.

What positive surprises did you see from your team this season

We really came together as a group this year. As my first season as head coach, I wasn’t sure how the upperclassmen would take a lot of the changes I made. However, they were able to find common ground and really bring us closer together as a team. They are a big part of the reason we were successful this season.

How did your season stack up against your expectations going into the season?

We always have high hopes going into season. Winning the SELC is always a huge accomplishment and certainly one of our goals every year. We wanted to do something that no other Tech team has ever done and for the most part, we accomplished that. Going to the second round of nationals against great competition is something we are all proud of, but we feel short of our ultimate goal. We have to continue to get better during the offseason and the fall and be ready for another hopefully strong year.

Where did your team improve the most during the season and which player’s took a step forward in their game?

As the season moved forward, we were more consistent on the offensive and defensive end. I also thought our ground ball play helped us win a lot of close games. I was really impressed the way Bryan Cooper stepped up and helped us win her SELC tournament and beat a very good BYU team. He will be counted on for the next few years to anchor our defense.

Where can next year’s team improve in order to reach your ultimate goal for the season?

I’m not sure there is one area that really needs to be improved on in particular, but we need go continue to work hard and get better each day. The MCLA is loaded with talent and great players and we have to continue to work hard to fight for a national championship.

Which incoming players are you most excited about and how do they fit with the type of team you are building?

We have a great recruiting class coming next year. They are all very excited to build on what we accomplished this year and are eager to be in Blacksburg. We also have a few transfers that could immediately fill some voids from our graduating seniors. Each of our recruits are hard working student athletes that are coachable and eager to keep building the program. They are all great fits for our program.
