The team also managed to reach the championship game of NEAC. NEAC stands for North Eastern Athletic Conference. Steve has also coached Morrisville’s first NEAC Rookie.

However, he came back to Chestertown in 2007 summers to serve as the assistant coach. However, his performance saw him getting the promotion as the interim head in October of the same year. In the season of 2007-08, he was appointed as the coach of Shorewomen’s first-team selection.
