Aliso Niguel head coach Randy Dodge was honored over the weekend as the 2012 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division 1 Coach of the Year.
                
Dodge, the Register’s and the CIF-SS Division 1 2011-2012 Coach of the Year, led the Wolverines to a 23-1-4 overall record that included a 19-match unbeaten streak and 15 shutouts.

Aliso Niguel went on to capture the school’s second CIF-SS Division 1 championship and its’ first ever CIF Southern California Division 1 Regional championship.
                
The Wolverines were honored by MaxPreps and ESPN as each publication's girls’ soccer national champions.
                
Dodge received the award at the annual NSCAA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.  
                
“It was a fantastic honor,” Dodge said. “It took a lot of hard work and we have some fantastic kids in the program. I’ve also had the support of a great administration at Aliso Niguel.”
                
The NSCAA Coach of the Year award recognizes coaches in the NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA, junior colleges, and high school. Dodge is the only high school coach from California to be honored among both girls and boys award winners.
                
He credited the work of long-time assistant coach Jesus “Chuy” Miramontes in helping build the girls program into one of the county’s best during his tenure.
                
“He deserves some of the award for sure,” Dodge said. “He has helped me elevate the program.”
