Playing Experience

On Dec. 23, 2002, Tim Collins was

named the first head coach in Lady Blues

soccer history and he brings the experience

and winning traditions from the high

school ranks to the Washburn campus.

In only five seasons of the Lady Blues

program while starting it from scratch,

Collins led the Washburn team to the

MIAA Championship and the NCAA

Tournament with a 15-1-6 record picking

up MIAA Coach of the Year honors

for the second straight season. Collins is

45-36-19 (.545) as the

Lady Blues head coach.

In 2004, the fruits of

Collins’ labor turned the

Lady Blues into a second

place conference team.

The 2005 Lady Blues recorded

the first winning

season in Washburn’s

history and Collins

picked up MIAA Coach

of the Year honors for the

second straight season.

In their second season

of existence, Collins coached the Lady Blues

from an eighth place finish from the first season

to a fifth place finish in the MIAA standings.

In his five seasons at the helm of the Lady

Blues program, he has coached 31 Washburn

soccer players who have earned all-MIAA honors.

He has also coached one All-American,

two MIAA MVPs, two CoSIDA Academic

All-American and 16 all-region selections. Collins’

enthusiasm has led to increased attendance

at Lady Blues matches as Washburn led the

NCAA Division II ranks in attendance in two

of the past three seasons (2005 and 2007), including

setting a Division II single-match attendance

record of 2,071 against Southwest Baptist

on Sept. 27, 2007.

Collins previously coached the Seaman boys

team to a fourth-place 5A state finish and a regional

championship after finishing second in

the Centennial League race. Before coaching at

Seaman, Collins headed the boys and girls programs

at Topeka West High School for 10 years.

In 2001, he coached the girls’ program to the

Class 5A state championship. He also coached

Charger teams to seven regional championships,

two tournament championships and two state
