GW Women's Soccer's Kristi Abbate Named 2012 Top Newcomer by Soccer America
George Washington women's soccer freshman Kristi Abbate was named a top newcomer in the Atlantic 10 by Soccer America's College Soccer Reporter on Tuesday. Referred to as "one of the most competitive conferences in 2012" by the publication, the midfielder was joined on the list by four fellow A-10 rookies from Charlotte, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. A four-year starter for Northport High School and a three-time All-New York State selection, Abbate's footwork, speed and agility helped the Colonials to a 1-0 exhibition win over Delaware on Sunday. Look for the Northport, N.Y., native in GW's season opener at Georgetown on Friday, Aug. 17.
