Washington, D.C. ?Georgetown senior Kenny Owens (Washington, D.C./Wilson) has been selected to participate in the 2002 Umbro Select All-Star Classic, taking place February 6-9 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Classic, which will be held just before the 2002 Major League Soccer (MLS) draft, consists of a major international soccer match along with various all-star games featuring the top senior collegiate players from throughout the United States.

Owens is only the third Georgetown player to participate in the All-Star Classic. Past Hoya participants have included Brandon Lieb (?95) and Eric Kvello (?98), who were drafted by D.C. United and the NY/NJ Metro Stars, respectively.

Owens, a forward, was second on the team in scoring this year with six goals and four assists totaling 16 points. He started in all 19 of the Hoyas? games this season and earned points in ten matches. Owens, a 2001 All-BIG EAST First Team Honoree, finishes his career ranked ninth on Georgetown?s All-Time Leading Scorers List with 27 goals, 14 assists and 68 points.

Georgetown is also among the 229 institutions of higher learning that have been awarded the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Academic honor. For the second straight year, the Hoyas have earned over a 3.0 grade point average. GU?s women?s program was also a recipient of the prestigious honor.

Georgetown finished the 2001 season with a 9-9-1 overall record and was 6-5 in Conference play. The Hoyas advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament for the tenth straight year, but were defeated 1-0 by Notre Dame in the quarterfinal round.
