A pair of Biola Head Coaches recorded milestone victories on Tuesday night as Men's Soccer coach Bryan Kuderman recorded his 100th win and Volleyball coach Aaron Seltzer picked up win No. 250.
The pair of coaches, who are both in their 10th season at Biola, pulled off impressive victories to reach the milestone.
Bryan Kuderman led his troops to a big GSAC road win on Tuesday as the Eagles defeated The Master's College, 2-0. The victory moved Biola into fifth place in the conference, clinched a berth in the GSAC tournament and was the Eagles' first win at The Master's since 2005.
Kuderman becomes just the second coach in program history to win 100 matches and is now 100-68-14 overall (.588 winning percentage), averaging just under 10 wins per season. During his tenure at Biola, Kuderman has guided the team to seven postseason berths in 10 seasons. He also helped the Eagles return to the NAIA Tournament for the first time in 20 years during the 2009 season, advancing to the quarterfinals.
Aaron Seltzer earned his 250th win with a dramatic five-set, come-from-behind upset win over arch-rival and No. 7-ranked Azusa Pacific University on Tuesday night. The win was a big upset for the 14th-ranked Eagles and came in the final GSAC matchup between the two long-time rivals as APU heads to the NCAA next season.
Seltzer, who is already the winningest-coach in program history, boasts a 250-94 overall record in 10 seasons and ranks among the top 10 active coaches in the NAIA with a .727 winning percentage. Seltzer has guided the team to five NAIA Tournament appearances including four-straight, reaching at least the semifinals in three of those trips.
Both teams are preparing for the postseason as their regular seasons wind down. The men's soccer team closes out the regular season on Friday with a home match against No. 23 Vanguard University at 7:00 p.m. The Eagles open GSAC Tournament play on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
The volleyball team has six regular-season matches remaining before the NAIA Tournament Opening Round begins on Saturday, Nov. 19. Biola welcomes No. 1 University of Texas-Brownsville to Chase Gymnasium on Thursday for a 7:00 p.m. match.
