BURLINGTON, Vt. - Kelly Martin, entering her 12th season as an assistant coach with the University of New Hampshire women's soccer program this fall, will be one of seven honorees inducted into the University of Vermont Athletic Hall of Fame this October, the University announced recently.
Martin competed her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration at UVM in 1993 and her Master's Degree, also at UVM, in Public Administration with a concentration in Athletic Administration in 2000. The Keene, N.H. native was a two-sport standout for the Catamounts as a letterwinner in soccer and softball, and Martin was named the 1993 recipient of the Sunderland Memorial Trophy, which is presented to someone who most displays qualities of character, leadership and persistence in overcoming obstacles.
Martin was distinguished as a First Team selection in All-New England as well as all-conference in both soccer and softball; her other soccer accolades included All-Northeast Region Team in 1992 and 1993. She captained the soccer team in 1992 and 1993 and served as the softball captain in 1994.
During Martin's tenure at UNH, the Wildcats have captured one America East regular-season title (2004) and advanced to the conference postseason eight times, and that includes seven appearances in the semifinals.
