Pat Stanco begins his 14th season at the helm of the Albright College women's soccer program in 2018.

In 2017, Stanco earned the most wins in a season since 2005 at Albright with 12 and the Lions advanced to the ECAC Tournament Semifinals in program history. With a 12-9-1 record overall and a 4-3-1 record in conference play, the Lions also qualified for the MAC Commonwealth Tournament for the fourth straight year and six out of seven years.

Three Lions players made earned All-MAC Commonwealth honors with two of them earning first-team accolades. Stanco also had his first Albright player earn United Soccer Coaches All-Region honors with junior defender Erica Bross garnering third-team all-region honors.

In 2016, the Lions reached the MAC Commonwealth Tournament for the fifth time in six seasons. The Lions finished with an 11-9-1 overall record and a 4-3-1 mark in conference play. Albright fell in the opening round of the MAC Commonwealth Tournament with a 1-0 loss at Lebanon Valley, but the Lions reached the ECAC Tournament for the third time in the last six years. The Lions defeated Neumann, 6-0, before falling to Kean, 2-1.

Stanco coached four players to All-MAC Commonwealth honors. Sophomore Erica Bross led that group with a selection to the First Team.

In 2015, Stanco guided the Lions to an 8-9-2 overall record and a 4-4 mark in the MAC Commonwealth which earned Albright a berth in the MAC Commonwealth Tournament.

The 2014 season saw Stanco lead Albright back to the postseason following a one-year absence. The Lions finished the season with a 7-11-1 overall mark and a 3-5 record in conference play.

After advancing to the MAC Commonwealth Tournament and the ECAC Tournament for two consecutive seasons, Albright just missed out on the postseason in 2013. The Lions finished 7-9-2 overall for the season.

The 2012 Lions qualified for both the Commonwealth and ECAC South championships, for the second consecutive year each.

In 2011, Albright went 9-5-5, with three of those losses coming against nationally-ranked teams (including two to eventual national champion Messiah). The Lions qualified for the Commonwealth Conference tournament and then beat Swarthmore in the ECAC South playoffs on the way to a semifinal appearance.

The 2010 season saw continued success for the Red and White as they tied nationally-ranked conference opponent Widener University.

In 2009, Stanco guided his squad to the Commonwealth Conference tournament for the second time in five years. On the road to the postseason, Stanco led the Lady Lions to victories over conference rivals Lebanon Valley College and Elizabethtown College.
