The Wilkes University women's soccer program began in 1987.
After struggling through the early years, the squad has now become a top contender for Freedom Conference honors. In fact, the 2005 season saw the Lady Colonels claim their first conference title and earn an automatic berth into the NCAA Division III Championship.  The team finished with a record of 15-4-1, setting a new school mark for victories in a season.

During seven of the last eight seasons,
the Lady Colonels have finished with a non-losing record.
The 2006 team registered the second highest win total in the program's history, fashioning an overall record of 13-6-1. In 1998, 1999 and 2004, the Lady Colonels finished with 12 victories. The 1998 team posted a 12-7 record, while the 1999 and 2004 teams ended their seasons with a record of 12-6-1. The 1999 unit also became the first women’s soccer team at Wilkes to qualify for the post-season. The Lady Colonels not only played in the ECAC playoffs that season, but hosted the ECAC Championships.

The program has garnered seven straight berths in...
the Freedom Conference playoffs and eight consecutive post-season playoff berths. The 2002 squad posted a Freedom Conference playoff win for the first time in school history before falling in the title contest.

During the past eight seasons Wilkes has had 34 players earn...
all-conference honors, four regional All-Americans, and 55 MAC All-Academic honorees.
