COLORADO SPRINGS — On Wednesday, University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer head coach Sian Hudson announced her resignation.

Hudson has accepted a job at the Division I level at LSU.

Hudson began her three-year tenure in 2017 where she immediately saw success as she ends her Mountain Lion career with an incredible 52-10-4 (.818 winning percentage) record and the program's only three NCAA Tournament appearances. She is coming off the most successful season in Mountain Lion history after going undefeated in the regular season.

"I would like to thank Nathan Gibson and the UCCS Athletics Department for the opportunity to lead the women's soccer program the past three years," said Hudson. "While we have been able to achieve notable success on the field, it is the relationships I built with all my players and staff, that I will cherish the most. I look forward to watching the program continue to excel in the future and will always hold a special place in my heart for my Mountain Lion Family".

UCCS rewrote the record books top to bottom in 2019 including best season win-loss percentage (19-2-0, .905), longest winning streak (19), season records for most points (187), goals (67), goals per game (3.19), assists (53), assists per game (2.52), points (187), and points per game (8.90). Defensively, the Mountain Lions set new records in goals against average (0.57) and shutouts (11).
