WASHINGTON - Georgetown University women's soccer seniors Rachel Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Pingry) and Elizabeth Wenger (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) were named All-Americans by the United Soccer Coaches on Thursday evening. Corboz was named to the first team and earned her third-career All-America honor. Wenger earned a spot on the second team.
Corboz was a First Team All-Midwest Region selection on Tuesday. This season she was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year and a unanimous First Team All-BIG EAST honoree. She led the team with nine goals and 12 assists for 30 points on the season, and had seven multi-point performances. Corboz was the nation's active career leader in assists and assists per game as a senior, and ranked second in the country in assists and fourth in assists per game. She led the country in total assists (16) in 2016, and now ranks second on GU's all-time career listing in assists (44) and points (112).
In her career, Corboz earned two career BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year awards and was a four-time All-BIG EAST honoree including three nods to the first team. She was a three-time United Soccer Coaches All-American and now a four-time United Soccer Coaches All-Region honoree and a two-time MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist. Corboz earned a spot on the BIG EAST All-Tournament Team in 2016 and 2017, winning Most Outstanding Offensive Player as a senior. This is her third career All-America honor and her second nod to the first team.
This is the sixth-straight year that a Corboz has earned All-American honors, as Corboz follows in the footsteps of her older sister, Daphne Corboz (C’15), who was a second team selection twice (2014, 2013) and a first team once (2012).
Wenger earned a spot on the second team marking her first career All-America honor. She was a First Team All-Midwest Region honoree after being named the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year. She was a three-time All-BIG EAST honoree, earning a spot on the first team as a senior. Wenger earned five BIG EAST weekly awards this season and also her second-consecutive all-tournament award being named the Most Outstanding Defensive Player as a senior.
She anchored a defense that allowed just seven goals in 21 games. Wenger started in 19 games on the season, and in her career she had two assists and 78 starts.
This is the eighth-straight year a Hoya women’s soccer player has earned All-American under Head Coach Dave Nolan. Under Nolan, six players have received 12 All-American honors. This is also the third time in program history that two players have earned All-American in the same year.
