December 2010 was an important month for the Long Beach State soccer family as women's head coach, Mauricio Ingrassia, was elected to the California Community College Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Coach Ingrassia's nine year community college coaching career at Long Beach Community College included 184 wins and an .870 winning percentage, during which time his teams brought home a record five state championships. He was also named California Coach of the Year on five separate occasions. Coach Ingrassia's impressive resume got him the head coaching position at LBSU in 2005, where he has continued his winning tradition.
Ingrassia was the organization's only 2010 inductee.
Coach Ingrassia sat down with the Black and Gold Insider to discuss the honor.
