Breakthrough season for women’s soccer squad under Kobylinski

Many were hopeful that new coach Mike Kobylinski could energize Central’s women’s soccer program. Few, if any, envisioned a 10-win season.

That’s four more victories than the Dutch produced in the previous three years combined. Central was coming off a 2-13-1 campaign in 2010 after suffering through a 1-18 season in 2009.

But the new direction was evident from the start under Kobylinski, a 2003 Central grad and former all-region player for the Dutch men’s squad. Central scored surprise victories in its first three games, exceeding the 2010 win total by Sept. 7, before finishing at 10-7.

Sophomore forward Alayna Bailey and sophomore defender Hannah Davy were second-team all-Iowa Conference picks.
