Tanya Zickefoose, originally from Edmonds, Washington, joins the Bethel Women’s soccer staff following a year as an assistant at LeTourneau University in Texas. Zickefoose is a graduate of Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho where she earned a degree in Recreation and Sports Management and graduated magna cum laude in 2013. Tanya coached alongside her former college coaches in 2013 and joins their staff at Bethel College this season. Having spent four years as an NCAA Division II goalkeeper, Zickefoose holds the distinction of having started all 68 games of her career in goal for NNU. She was a three-time All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference selection and tallied one assist and 359 saves in her career as a goalkeeper. Along with her athletic pursuits, Zickefoose was named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer All-Academic Team in 2010, 2011 and 2012. To cap off her success both academically and athletically throughout her career, she was named to the 2012 Women’s College Division Scholar All-West Region team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in 2012. This honor is significant in that she was one of 26 athletes to be named to the team, which is made of collegiate women’s soccer players from NCAA Division I, II and III and the NAIA from a region that stretches from Colorado to Hawaii. She was the only goalkeeper among these 26 athletes.
