Melissa Phillips was hired in April 2015 and has completed one season as an assistant coach on Nicole Van Dyke’s staff with the University of Pennsylvania women’s soccer program. The Quakers went 6-4-6 in Van Dyke’s first season at the helm, and allowed just 11 goals which is third on the program’s all-time list for fewest goals allowed in a season. The season ended with three women earning All-Ivy recognition — including two first-teamers — and returning defender Paige Lombard gaining NSCAA All-Region honors.
