WASHINGTON - Georgetown University sophomore women's soccer player Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) was named a First Team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) on Friday afternoon. Corboz was the youngest player selected to the 14-player first team.
The All-American honor for Corboz comes just a few days after she was named one of 15 semifinalists for the Missouri Athletic Club's (MAC) Hermann Trophy, the highest individual award in intercollegiate soccer. It is presented annually in January during a banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
Corboz helped to lead Georgetown to one of the most successful seasons in program history as the Hoyas set a school record with 16 wins. The Blue & Gray finished the 2012 season with a 16-4-3 overall record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Along the way, the Hoyas posted an 8-1-1 record in the BIG EAST Conference and won the BIG EAST National Division title.
A 5-2 sophomore, Corboz was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year after a record-setting season for the Hoyas. Overall, Corboz set a Georgetown single-season record with 44 points scored. She scored a school single-season record 18 goals while adding eight assists. Corboz ranks 11th in the country in points per game (1.91), 10th in goals per game and is tied for seventh in goals scored overall (18).
In 10 BIG EAST Conference games this season, she tallied a league-high 27 points and 12 goals. Corboz, who scored at least one point in six league games, set a BIG EAST record with 11 points in an 8-0 win at Pittsburgh on Sept. 30, scoring five goals.
Corboz is the second player in Georgetown women's soccer history to earn All-American honors, joining Ingrid Wells (C'11), a three-time selection. This is the third-straight year a Hoya has earned NSCAA All-American honors, as Wells was a first team selection in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
