History

1990s

The Clemson women's soccer team was founded in 1994. The program enjoyed early success under its first coach Tracey Leone. The team tied for second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference during this period and made the NCAA tournament in every year. The Tigers also reached the ACC tournament final twice during this period. The team's best finish was a quarterfinals appearance in 1998. In 1999, Tracey Leone was replaced as head coach by Ray Leone.

2000s

The team's good fortunes continued in the 2000s finishing no lower than 3rd in the ACC in the first four seasons. Ray Leone left as Head Coach in 2000 and was replaced by Todd Bramble. [2] The team could not quite match the success of the early 2000s, never finishing above 4th in the ACC between 2004 and 2010. The Tigers continued to make the NCAA tournament. They made the tournament every season under Bramble. Their best result was the Quarterfinals in 2008. In 2008, Bramble left as coach and was replaced with Hershey Strosberg. [3] The team took a sharp decline under Strosberg, finishing 10th or below in the ACC in each of his three seasons in charge. The team failed to make the NCAA tournament in those three years, ending a streak of 14 consecutive appearances.

2010s

Strosberg was fired in 2010 and replaced with Eddie Radwanski. [4] Radwanski's teams improved in each of their first three seasons but could not finish above 10th in the ACC and failed to make the NCAA tournament. A six win improvement from 2013 to 2014 saw the Tigers finish 5th in the ACC and return to the NCAA tournament. The Tigers have made the NCAA tournament during the next two seasons and recorded double digit wins from 2014–2019. The team advanced farther in each NCAA tournament appearance during 2014–16, including a Sweet 16 trip in 2016, their first trip to the Sweet 16 since 2001. The Tigers could not repeat the feat in the last three years of the decade, making the Second Round twice (2017 and 2019), but falling there in each year.

Hazing Lawsuit

In 2014 a lawsuit was brought against Clemson University, Clemson University administrators, 3 women's soccer team coaches, and 16 women's soccer team players by Haley Hunt. Hunt was a member of the team from 2011–2013. The lawsuit claims that Hunt was subjected to hazing during her time with the team and the hazing caused significant physical harm. [5] As of 2016, Hunt has settled with all but one of the defendants named in the case. [6]
