Three Hoyas Named to 2008 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team

Oct. 30, 2008

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's soccer team had three players named to the 2008 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team announced by CoSIDA today. Senior Stephanie Zare (Lake Bluff, Ill./Lake Forest) and sophomores Caitlin Durkee (St. Paul, Minn./Como Park) and Jackie DesJardin (Sunnyvale, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) were honored for their achievements in the classroom and on the soccer field. Of the 25 players recognized, eight were BIG EAST members, and Georgetown had the most honorees of any conference team over all eight districts.

Zare, majoring in human science, has started every game for the Hoyas these past three seasons after medically red-shirting her freshman year. This season, she is third on the team in points, tied for third in assists and tied for fourth in goals. She is also part of the winningest class in Georgetown history, having amassed 44 victories. After this season, she plans on attending medical school and continuing her work in orthopedics.

DesJardin, majoring in biology, holds the Georgetown single-season shutout record with nine this season and currently ranks second all-time with 16 blankings. She ranks in the top 30 nationally in both goals-against average and save percentage this season while holding Hoya opponents to 12 goals in 18 games. She has received numerous weekly awards from the BIG EAST this season and was recently named to SoccerBuzz Magazine's National Team of the Week.

Durkee, majoring in biology, is ranked in the top 25 nationally in assists. Her 10 helpers are tied for the team lead, and also tied for third on the single-season list with teammate Samantha Baker (Long Beach, Calif./Wilson). Since arriving at Georgetown, she has played in every game and recorded a career-high three assists in a Senior Day win against DePaul this season.

 

 

The Hoyas are home this Sunday when they take on UConn in the BIG EAST Championship Quarterfinals at 1 p.m.
