An Undefeated Regular Season for Women’s Soccer

The Pomona-Pitzer women’s soccer team lost only one game all year: a 1-0 season-ending setback in the second round of the NCAA tournament to Cal Lutheran, the eventual Division III national champion.

Until then, the Sagehens were 16-0-3, going unbeaten in the regular season for the first time in program history. They tied Cal Lutheran for the SCIAC regular-season title and then claimed the SCIAC tournament title with a 1-0 victory over their conference co-champions—only to fall to the same team in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Led by strong defense and goaltending, the Sagehens gave up only seven goals all season. Among numerous postseason honors, midfielder Ella Endo ’25 was named first-team All-American by United Soccer Coaches and defender Spencer Deutz PZ ’25 was chosen to the second team. Endo was the SCIAC Offensive Athlete of the Year and Jen Scanlon led the SCIAC Coaching Staff of the Year.
