Tracy Hoza has been the head coach of Northwest Missouri State’s soccer program since 2003.
The Bearcats won a program-record 11 games in 2009 and placed fifth in the MIAA standings, the team’s best finish since 2001. That performance followed a 10-win season in 2008 and a nine-win mark in 2006. The three best records in the program’s history came in a four-year span (2008, 2009, 2011).
The 2012 season saw six Bearcats earn All-MIAA honors. Kira Lazenby was the program’s first MIAA Goalkeeper of the Year in 2009. Lazenby went on to sign a professional contract with the Santa Clarita Blue Head of the USL’s W-League in the spring of 2010.
Northwest garnered its first MIAA Freshman of the Year in 2016 as Izzy Romano received the honor. Romano was named second team All-MIAA with four goals and six assists.
Hoza is the second coach in program history, the longest tenured and holds the most wins at Northwest with 89 wins.
