Head Coach: Skip Roderick '74
Few coaches in the NCAA Division III can match the 25-year run
of success that Arthur D. Skip Roderick has enjoyed since
becoming the Elizabethtown College soccer coach in 1983. 17 of his
teams have qualified for the NCAA post-season tournament; the 1989 team
won the national championship.
After 1999, the MAC playoffs were replaced by the Commonwealth Conference playoffs. The Blue Jays reached the Commonwealth Conference championship game in 2000, 2001 and 2003. Elizabethtown won its 17th conference title when the Blue Jays won the Commonwealth Conference championship in 2004. In 2005, Elizabethtown finished as the conference runner up, and Etown has played in the Commonwealth Conference championship game five times in the last six years. The Blue Jays picked up their 18th conference title in 2006, winning the Commonwealth championship for the second time in three years, and made another appearance in the title match in 2007.
