Berticelli to Receive Outstanding Achievement Award

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame head men's soccer coach MIKE BERTICELLI will be honored by The Maine Sports Hall of Fame on June 1 with the Outstanding Achievement Award. The award will be presented at the Maine Sports Hall of Fame annual awards banquet at the Bangor Civic Center.

BERTICELLI, a native of Lewiston, Maine, and a graduate of the University of Maine-Farmington, led Notre Dame to its most successful season in school history as the Irish won the BIG EAST championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Notre Dame posted a 14-7-2 record in '96 and finished third in the final BIG EAST regular season standings with a 6-3-2 mark. After winning the BIG EAST tournament and earning the Conference's automatic berth into the NCAA 32-team field, Berticelli's squad upset second-ranked UNC-Greensboro 1-0 for the school's first-ever tournament win. The Irish lost in the second round to UNC-Charlotte 1-0.

In seven seasons at Notre Dame, BERTICELLI has led the Irish to three NCAA tournament appearances (1993, 1994 and 1996). He has a 77-56-11 mark with the Irish.

BERTICELLI will begin his 22nd season at the collegiate level in 1997. In 21 seasons, he has a 263-111-34 record. Prior to Notre Dame he coached at Old Dominion (1984-89), UNC-Greensboro (1980-83) and Thomas College (1976-79). While UNC-Greensboro, his teams won back-to-back Division III national titles in 1982 and 1983.

BERTICELLI received the Maine Sports Hall of Fame President's Award in June of '95.
