Hylton Added to Women's Soccer Staff

WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Women's Soccer Coach Elizabeth Pike announced Wednesday that she has added Stephanie Hylton to her coaching staff.

Hylton, who graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Communications and a minor in Theatre Arts in 2011, was a four-year player for the Hokies from 2007-10.

Hylton played in 45 games in her collegiate career with 36 starts with her best season coming in 2008 when she had one goal and three assists for five points and started 21 of 23 contests.

As a high school player for Pike at Lake Braddock H.S. in northern Virginia, Hylton was a national pool ODP player, helped the Bruins to two Group AAA state championships and was a Washington Post All-Met selection following her senior year.

She also named MVP of the state championship game at Lake Braddock.

"I am very happy to add Stephanie to my staff," Pike said. "She was a great player for me in high school and had a successful career at Tech.

"I look forward to working with her as we transition to the ODAC this coming fall."

Shenandoah, which won its first-ever USA South Conference title this past fall and played Rowan (N.J.) in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, opens its 2012 season on August 31 at the Kean (N.J.) Tournament.

SU has its first-ever ODAC game on September 14 at home against Roanoke.
