Lukic won the Heartland Division and was named the USL W coach of the year in 2022 with many Aurora players winning awards too.  In 2023, Lukic once again led the team to an undefeated season going 12-0 to capture the Heartland Division Championship and then the Central Conference championship before losing in the quarterfinals to Indy Eleven.
