BENNINGTON, Vt.- Juniata head men's soccer coach, Dan Dubois, was inducted into the Southern Vermont College/Saint Joseph College Athletics Hall of Fame last week for his outstanding four-year career as a forward on the men's soccer team.
He helped lead the Mountaineers to the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) playoffs in both 1999 and 2000—doing so under the leadership of coaches Tony Kasulinous and Mike Ryan, respectively. Dubois then returned to Southern Vermont to assist the program in 2001 before spending another two years at SVC as the head coach—his 2002 squad making another GNAC postseason appearance.
Dubois, who went to SVC from Massachusetts, is amongst the most proficient forwards in the school's history. He tallied 34 goals (fourth most) and 20 assists (third most) during his SVC tenure. He is fourth all-time in school history for total points (88). Dubois was selected to the All-GNAC Second Team in both '99 and '00. He graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts degree.
Dubois also chalked up a mark of 1.93 meters in the high jump at Middlebury College's 2001 track and field meet—helping him qualify for the ECAC and NCAA Division III New England championships.
"Being included in the Hall of Fame, along with all of the great student-athletes and coaches who have come before me—and the ones receiving the honor this year—means so much to me," Dubois said. "I consider myself lucky to have had the greatest family and teammates, as well as the wonderful people at SVC, during my time there; that includes my coaches—Tony Kasulinous, Mike Ryan, and Scott Kilgallon—and mentors like Judy Corbett and Scott McKenzie. They are the ones who helped make this moment possible for me."
