Sahaydak joined UCF in 2013 from VCU, and has since racked up the following on her resume:
- 68-24-11 Record (.714 Win %)
- Three AAC Regular Season Titles
- One AAC Tournament Title
- Four NCAA Tournament Appearances
- Three AAC Coach of the Year Awards
- 11 Conference Player of the Year Awards
- 38 All-Conference and All-Tournament selections
Sahaydak, a member of the World Cup Champion 1999 United States Women's National Team and a 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist as a player, has continued a remarkable run of success for UCF Women's Soccer that goes back to its founding days under head coach Jim Rudy, and fellow Team USA players Michelle Akers and Kim Wyant. She is currently the winningest head coach in UCF Women's Soccer history with a .714 winning percentage, just ahead of Rudy.
One of her other former teammates, the legendary Mia Hamm, shared some words of encouragement on Twitter:
Congrats, TR! You deserve it. https://t.co/8r3SZoAbPh— Mia Hamm (@MiaHamm) July 17, 2018
This gives us the obligatory opportunity to show you the most famous goal in United States Soccer history, and remind you that both Roberts and Akers were on the field for this incredible moment in the 1999 World Cup. See if you can find Sahaydak in the post-game celebration, wearing #5:
Still awesome after 19 years.
