The Miami Hurricanes women's soccer team represent University of Miami in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) of NCAA Division I women's college soccer.[2] The team has participated in two conferences, the Big East and the ACC and has not won a conference championship. The team has advanced to the NCAA Tournament five times, never making it further than the second round.

History[edit]

1990s[edit]

The Hurricanes began play without a conference in 1998 and finished a respectable 8–5–1. Jim Blankenship was the first coach in program history. In 1999, the women's soccer team joined Big East Conference play, as the University was a full member of the conference.[3] The team improved on its previous season, finishing 12–8–0 and 2–3–0 in conference play. The Hurricanes qualified for the Big East Conference Women's Soccer Tournament, but lost in the first round. This was the team's first ever postseason appearance.

2000s[edit]

The 2000s began with a 9–10–1 season that saw the Hurricanes again qualify for the Big East Tournament. 2001 saw more postseason action when the team qualified for its first ever NCAA Tournament. However, before the 2002 season, head coach Jim Blankenship resigned as head coach.[4] Tricia Taliaferro was hired from Illinois to be the second head coach in the program's history.[5] Overall records of 9–9–1 marked Taliaferro's first two years at the helm. In both seasons, the team finished 2nd in the Big East, and lost in the first round of the Big East Tournament. 2004 marked the Hurricanes first year as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.[6] The first season in the ACC proved a difficult one, with the team finishing 3–13–0 overall, and 1–8–0 in the conference. 2005 saw the team end a streak of six conference tournament appearances. In 2007 and 2008, the team made back to back ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament appearances, losing if the first round in all four attempts. 2009 saw the team finish with a similar record but fail to make either tournament.

2010s[edit]

The Hurricanes stated out the 2010s with a 10–8–1 record, and failed to qualify for the ACC and NCAA tournament. After the season, Taliaferro was dismissed as head coach.[7] Tom Anagnost was hired as the new head coach prior to the 2011 season.[8] In Anagnost's first season, the team achieved their best ever NCAA finish, making it to the second round. Another NCAA appearance in 2012 was not enough to save Anagnost's job. After a 9–7–4 overall record, he was relieved of head coaching duties.[9] Shortly thereafter, Mary-Frances Monroe was hired to be the new head coach.[10] Monroe's first few seasons proved difficult, with the team finishing 11th or 12th in the ACC in 2013, 2014, and 2015. 2014 and 2015 also saw the Hurricanes lose double digit games. The team had a slight turn around in 2016, qualifying for the ACC tournament, but losing in the first round. Following a 5–11 2017 season, Monroe was fired as head coach.[11] Prior to the 2018 season, Sarah Barnes was named the school's new head coach.[12] Her first year saw some improvement with the team finishing 6–9–3, but extended a run of missing the NCAA tournament to six straight years.
