Tabatznik joins Virginia-DC Hall of Fame
Former Georgetown University men’s soccer coach Keith Tabatznik was inducted into the Virginia-DC Soccer Hall of Fame this past weekend. He is one of the first people associated with the Georgetown program to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame. Tabatznik was one of three people inducted for Meritorious Sevice and one of eight 2011 inductees.
Tabatznik coached the Hoyas for 22 seasons, and his teams compiled a record of 220-187-23 (.538) and a mark of 94-73-10 (.559) in conference play. He was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year twice in 1994 and 1997.
Tabatznik earned his 200th career win as head coach during the 2004 season advancing to the semifinals of the BIG EAST Tournament. The Hoyas lost in overtime to Seton Hall and just narrowly missed a berth to the NCAA’s. Tabatznik also saw two of his student-athletes drafted by Major Indoor Soccer League, with Dan Gargan playing for the Philadelphia KiXX and Trevor Goodrich selected by the St. Louis Steamers. Gargan and Jeff Curtin were also drafted by Major League Soccer.
