Anna Zambricki and Nicole Martin Headline Six Named to All-UAA Team
St. Louis, Mo., November 8, 2012 — Washington University in St. Louis had six student-athletes named to the All-University Athletic Association (UAA) Women’s Soccer Team, as announced Thursday by the conference office. Sophomore Anna Zambricki highlighted the honorees by earning Co-Most Valuable Player honors with Lauren Gorodetsky of Emory University.
Zambricki led the UAA in goals scored in conference play (seven) and in all games played (12). She recorded a pair of hat tricks on the road in UAA play, leading the Bears to a pair of 3-0 wins at Carnegie Mellon University on Sept. 30 and at Case Western Reserve University on Oct. 29. Zambricki is tied for 10th place in school history with 22 career goals.
Senior back Nicole Martin joined Zambricki on the first team after starting 17 games at center back for the Bears. Martin, a second-team all-UAA selection in 2010, has anchored a Bears’ defense that has allowed just 12 goals in 18 games played. She also scored one goal and added two assists in 2012.
Junior midfielder Kate Doyle and sophomore forward Lillie Toaspern picked up second-team accolades for the second-straight year.
Doyle, a three-time all-UAA honoree, has started 17 games this season for the Bears with two goals and five assists. Toaspern, the 2011 UAA Rookie of the Year, has made 16 starts and was second on the team in scoring with seven goals and six assists for 20 points. The six assists are tied for the team lead and rank fifth in the league.
Senior goalkeeper Clara Jaques and junior midfielder Jen Reed rounded out the honorees by earning honorable-mention all-UAA accolades.
Jaques has recorded a 16-1-1 record this season with a 0.68 goals against average and leads the conference with six shutouts. A four-time all-UAA selection, she ranks first in school history in wins and shutouts, second in saves and fifth in goals against average. Reed has started 13 of 15 games played scoring one goal and one assist for three points. She picks up all-UAA honors for the first time in her career.
Washington University has a 16-1-1 overall record, and captured the program’s eighth UAA championship with a 6-0-1 record against conference foes.
