    As the final seconds ticked off the clock last week in the Wilmington College women’s soccer team’s 1-0 decision over Muskingum, a conspiracy quickly unfolded as several seniors grabbed the iconic orange Gatorade bucket and moved in the direction of Steve Spirk. The victory not only marked a late-season win over an Ohio Athletic Conference rival, but it was Spirk’s 300th victory as the Fightin’ Quakers’ head coach. It marked a significant milestone for both the coach and program that have been part of conference championships, NCAA Tournaments, and prominence in NCAA Division III soccer. The 300th win evoked memories of players, matches, training sessions and all that has gone into building one of the most solid small college programs in Ohio since he took over as head coach in 1992.
