Lake Tahoe Community College's fourth season (2017) was a historic one: most wins in program history (17); highest win percentage in program history (.803); first conference title in program history; most conference wins in program and conference history (12); least goals allowed in conference history (1); most goals scored in program history and second-most in the state in 2017 (100); highest playoff seed in program history (highest in conference since 2004); first playoff win in program history; first home playoff game in program history; and the first national ranking and first top-ten national ranking in program history.
The 2017 Lady Coyotes finished 17-3-3 overall and a perfect 12-0 in the Golden Valley
Conference. LTCC recorded wins or ties against nationally-ranked Cerritos College
(defending national champions and then-No. 1 team in the country), Sierra College,
Santa Rosa, and Las Positas. They outscored all opponents 100-12 and conference opponents
82-1. Their season ended in the second round of the Northern California regional playoffs
with a 1-0 loss to Santa Rosa.
Six players were named on all-conference first or second teams - a program record - and two more earned player of the year honors (Madison Boyd of Las Vegas named the Most Valuable Player, while Caitlyn Bidart of Minden, Nev., being named Defensive Player of the Year). Nine freshmen, including six of the program's eight all-conference honorees, started in their last playoff game, and with several players already committed for next year, the Lady Coyotes should remain as one of the nation's elite two-year programs in 2018.
