Todd Poitras completed his tenth season as the Head Coach of the Eagles Women's Soccer program in 2017. The longest tenured coach in the program's history, Coach Poitras has transformed the Eagles' squad into a regionally and nationally recognized competitor in the NAIA. He holds a career record of 109-63-20, which includes six straight seasons of double digit wins, and the teams historic 18-4-0 mark this past season. That 2017 team advanced to the sweet sixteen of the NAIA National Tournament, and finished with a final national ranking of #15, having not dropped out of the top 25 poll for the past two and a half seasons. At the conference level, Embry-Riddle has seen unprecedented success. The 2012, 2016, and 2017 regular season champions, and 2012, 2015, and 2017 tournament champions have been proud to represent the California Pacific Conference in the NAIA National Tournament three times in the past six seasons. Poitras' conference record of 51-11-4 in six seasons includes a stellar 10-0 record in 2017, where the Eagles did not concede a goal throughout regular season or post-season conference play. He was named the 2017 CalPac Coach of the Year, and the Eagle coaching staff was named the United Soccer Coaches Staff of the Year for the West Region.
In his 10 seasons, Poitras has seen his players named All-Conference 55 times, with 20 named NSCAA West All-Region, and 8 NAIA All-Americans in Kelsey Anderson, Kalyn Goodenough, Estelle Fortes, Ally Leara, Krista Lee, Adri Jackson, Caitlyn Aaron, and Riley Martinson. Since joining the CalPac in 2012, he has seen his players awarded Conference Player of the Year 4 times, Conference Freshman of the Year 4 times, Conference Offensive/Defensive Player of the year twice, and had another named Conference Newcomer of the Year.
The Eagles have excelled in the classroom as well under Poitras' leadership. Through the 10 seasons, 59 players have been named Daktronics Scholar-Athletes, with 20 players receiving that honor multiple times. Adri Jackson and Krista Lee were named USC Scholar All-Americans in 2017 as well, being honored at the USC Convention in Philadelphia. The team finished the 2017-2018 fall semester with team GPA of 3.60, giving them the distinct honor of having one of the highest GPAs of any NAIA women's soccer program in the country, and in the top 50 among all NAIA athletic programs. The 2017-2018 season also marked the 10th consecutive time the women's program received the NAIA Scholar Team Award, as well as the NSCAA Team Academic Award.
