---- — Waterbury named SUNYAC Coach of the Year
PLATTSBURGH — The SUNYAC announced its 2012 men’s soccer postseason awards Wednesday with Plattsburgh State head coach Chris Waterbury receiving SUNYAC Soccer Coach of the Year by a vote of the conference coaches.
In 28 seasons with the Cardinals, Waterbury has compiled a 390-119-54 record, making him the winningest SUNYAC coach in the program’s history. Coach Waterbury led his team to its sixth SUNYAC regular season title with a 7-2 record against conference opponents while the Cardinals made their 15th-straight trip to the SUNYAC tournament. Plattsburgh finished the year with a 17-3-1 record, falling to Oneonta State in the SUNYAC championship game.
Earlier this season, Waterbury reached another coaching milestone when he picked up his 400th career victory in a 2-0 victory at Norwich University on Sept. 5. In a career that spans 30 years, Waterbury boasts a career record of 414-137-31.
With his 25th-straight winning season in the books, Waterbury garners SUNYAC honors for the seventh time in his career and the first time since the Cardinals’ phenomenal 2005 season. He was also recognized by the conference in 1990, 1992, 1998, 1999 and 2003
