    Carin Gabarra is a proven winner.

    Not only was she a success as a forward on the UC-Santa Barbara soccer team and later in her career playing for the United States National Team,

    but Gabarra has also demonstrated the golden touch when leading others by example.

    It is the gift of leadership, which has led her to become one of the household names within the collegiate coaching ranks. Not because she was an eight-time All-American (four in high school and four at UC-Santa Barbara), and not because she was a member of the 1996 Olympic gold-medal winning U.S. National Team, but because she has developed the Navy soccer program from ground level to one of the Mid-Atlantic Regions most competitive teams.

    Since taking over the Navy program in 1993, she has taken the Midshipmen from a club-level organization to a team who has claimed at least a share of the Patriot League regular-season title seven times, made three NCAA Tournament appearances, and produced 18 consecutive winning seasons.

    Gabarra is the Patriot Leagues all-time wins leader and joined an elite group of coaches when she won her 250th career game during the 2012 season.


    Gabarra arrived at Navy in 1993, and led the Mids to a 2-5 mark in their first season as a varsity sport. In the process, Navy gained valuable experience before beginning Patriot League competition in 1994.

    The Mids showed great progress in their inaugural season, as they missed a league tournament berth by just one game. The improvement continued in 95 with Navy boasting a record of 10-7-1 while making their first Patriot League Tournament appearance. The teams success didnt stop there. The 96 squad produced an 11-6-2 record, finished fourth in the league and made its first postseason tournament appearance with a game against Monmouth in the ECAC Tournament. Gabarra guided the 1997 team to a 10-8 record and a third-place finish in the Patriot League. Six Mids earned All-Patriot League recognition, including Defensive Player of the Year and Academic All-America honoree, Nicole Aunapu.

    The 1998 season fulfilled the dreams of many, as Gabarra led the Mids to 17 wins, 14 shutouts and Navys first regular-season conference title. An unprecedented nine Mids earned all-league honors, including eight first-teamers. Justine Fisher earned rookie-of-the-year accolades, while Aunapu was dubbed Defensive Player of the Year for the second-straight season. Aunapu was just the sixth player in league history to earn First-Team All-Patriot League recognition all four years and concluded her career

    as a two-time Academic All-American.

    In 1999, Navy again made a run at the Patriot League crown, as the Mids shared the regular-season title with a 5-1 league mark. While making a return trip to the conference championship game, six Mids were tabbed all-league, including Fisher who became the first Mid to be honored as the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year.

    The year 2000 brought Fisher her third all-league honor, as the Mids posted a 10-9-2 record and earned a bid to the league tournament for the sixth-consecutive season. Meanwhile, two rookies showed a glimmer of greatness to come in Amelia Sheveland, who tied the school record for goals in a game with four, and Stacy Finley, who made 17 starts while playing virtually every position.

    Just one win shy of the school record, the 2001 team found success as it claimed a share of the Patriot League regular-season title with a 16-5-1 overall mark and 6-1 league record. Fisher became Navys all-time leading scorer, while Gabarra claimed her 100th-career win all in one eventful day -- Oct. 28, 2001, against George Mason. Finley earned the offensive player-of-the-year title, Kate Macfarlane was deemed the defensive player of the year and Xochitl Piedra shared the top rookie honor. Meanwhile, Fisher and Kate Macfarlane both were Academic All-Americans.

    Navy posted the programs first undefeated regular season at 16-0-4, before American upset the Mids in the Patriot League Tournament to leave the only blemish on the Mids 2002 record. Navy was the only Div. I school that finished the 2002 season without a loss in regular-season play. Finley garnered her second-straight Patriot League Offensive Player-of-the-Year award after setting single-season school records with 45 points and 19 goals. Defensively, Kim Bonafede was among the top three nationally in GAA. Nadia Sheikh was a first-team all star after assuming the schools all-time assist lead in the final game of her career.

    In 2003, Navy claimed its first Patriot League Tournament title and became the first Naval Academy womens team in any sport to earn a bid to play in the NCAA Tournament. En route to their 17-5-1 record, the Mids owned the nations longest regular-season unbeaten streak (35 games) before dropping a one-goal decision to eventual national champion North Carolina. Over 6,500 fans witnessed the game, breaking the NCAA single-game attendance record. Stacy Finley was named First-Team All-Patriot League after becoming the Mids all-time leader in career scoring, goals scored and shots taken. Classmate Amelia Sheveland garnered Patriot League Tournament MVP recognition, finishing her care
