Stevens' record

STORRS, Conn. -- With Friday's 6-0 victory against No. 14 Louisville, Connecticut head coach Nancy Stevens became the all-time winningest coach in NCAA Division I history.  Stevens, who entered the season as the winningest active coach in the NCAA, now sports a career record of 562-172-24 in her 35th year, for a winning percentage of .758.

Stevens supplants former Old Dominion coach Beth Anders as the sport's all-time winner.  Anders finished her career with a record of 561-136-7 in 30 seasons.

Stevens, who spent seven seasons at Northwestern before coming to UConn in 1990, has led her teams to eight appearances in the NCAA semifinal and 20 trips to the NCAA quarterfinal.

A 2007 National Field Hockey Coaches Association Hall of Fame inductee, she has led the Huskies to 24 Big East championships and has been honored as the league's coach of the year seven times.

A graduate of West Chester, Stevens was inducted into her alma mater's hall of fame in 2003 and was inducted into the Connecticut Field Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.

When he applied to replace the retiring Baylock in 2003, Penders told then-athletic director Jeff Hathaway that his goal was not to be a college baseball coach. He said it was to be the UConn baseball coach. And in the years since, Penders has not simply been a great coach at UConn. He has been a great UConn coach. There is a difference.
