Profile
Ange Bradley has turned the Orange into a field hockey national power in her 11 seasons at the helm of the program.

She transformed Syracuse into one of the nation's top programs. That success reached its peak in 2015, when Bradley led the Orange to the first National Championship in program history and first national title by any women's program at Syracuse University, earning her NFHCA National Coach of the Year honors for the second time in her career.

Bradley's Orange has become one of the nation's premier destinations for top-level talent and her teams have become a force in the nation's best conference. 'Cuse boasts the best record in ACC play - widely considered the best conference in America - since her team joined the league in 2013. The Orange are tied with Virginia with an 18-12 record during that time. Her teams also entered 2017 with the longest-active streak in the country of earning one of the four national seeds in the NCAA Tournament.

She has won 80-percent of her games at SU (188-47), running her career record to 323-108-2 (.749). In addition to the 2015 National Championship, Bradley has led the Orange to 10-straight NCAA Tournaments (2008-17), their only four Final Fours in program history (2008, 2012, 2014 and 2015), two national championship game appearances (2014 and 2015), an ACC regular season title (2015), four BIG EAST regular season titles (2008-10, 2012), and two BIG EAST Tournament Championships (2010-11).

Besides her 2015 ACC Coach of the Year honors, she won the BIG EAST Coach of the Year award four times (2007, 2009, 2010, 2012). Bradley amassed a 31-5 (.861) record in BIG EAST Conference play and since joining the ACC in 2013, Bradley has led Syracuse to a 16-8 mark in conference play.

After going 4-2 in ACC play in 2013, Bradley guided the club to its first appearance in the ACC Tournament final and NCAA Tournament championship game in 2014. Following that success, she led the Orange back to the ACC title game in 2015 after taking the regular season title, while coaching 'Cuse to a perfect 16-0 regular season. The Orange once again reached the NCAA Title game in 2015, this time taking down North Carolina 4-2 to claim the crown. The Orange once again experienced national success in 2016, earning the No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament after finishing second in the ACC before falling in the NCAA Quarterfinals - the third-straight season 'Cuse has reached the quarterfinals.
