Alvine led the Vulcans to a 73-28-11 (.701) record including a 2011 season in which Cal U recorded an undefeated regular season before falling to eventual-National Champion Saint Rose in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II Championship. The Vulcans finished 20-1-2, won its first-ever Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championship and finished ranked No. 6 in the final NSCAA Top 25 Poll. Cal U had qualified for the NCAA Division II Championship in each of the last three seasons.
A native of Butler, New Jersey, Alvine has posted a 130-63-18 career record (.659) over 10 seasons which has also included stops at Saint Anselm and Castleton State . He helped lead Cal U to its highest-ever national ranking in the NSCAA Top 25 poll this year at No. 2 after finishing last season ranked No. 14 and No. 6 in 2009.
Individually, Alvine has produced 21 All-PSAC selections, two PSAC Athletes of the Year, two PSAC Freshmen of the Year and two Academic All-Americans.
