Dustin Shambach enters his sixth year at Navy and first season as a full-time assistant coach with the women’s squad. While at Navy, Shambach has coached two different goalkeepers to three-straight seasons of all-league honors.

In her second season under Shambach, Hoerner shined in net with career bests in both goals-against average (0.57) and shutouts (9). As the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year for the second consecutive season, Hoerner allowed two goals in 787:51 minutes against league opponents.

Shambach coached Elizabeth Hoerner in her first year as a starter in 2012. Hoerner posted a 17-2-1 record with a 1.06 goals-against average and was named the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year and to the all-league first team. Navy led the Patriot League with a 0.90 GAA.

In 2011, Shambach mentored goalkeeper Alexes Lopez-Shaw, who was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team after sporting a 13-6-2 record with a 0.94 goals-against average.

Navy shutout eight opponents in 2014, 14 in 2013, nine in 2012 and 2011, while posting eight shutouts in Shambach’s first season in 2010.

Shambach previously was the goalkeeper coach at Messiah (2008-09), helping the Falcons capture a pair of NCAA Division III national titles. Two of his goalkeepers were named the national tournament MVPs for their efforts.

He is a 2007 graduate of Messiah and holds most current D-III career goalkeeping records as a result of a stellar career in which he led the Falcons to national championships in 2004, 2005 and 2006. In 2004, Messiah became the first team in tournament history to go through the NCAA tournament without allowing a goal, outscoring opponents 17-0 in five games.

Shambach resides in Annapolis.
