NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- The George Washington women's soccer squad garnered five Atlantic 10 postseason honors, the league announced on Wednesday. Junior Sofia Pavon was named to the All-Conference First Team, redshirt senior Miranda Horn and redshirt sophomore Megan McCormick landed on the All-Conference Second Team, and freshman Alexis Williams earned All-Rookie Team honors. Horn was also named to the All-Academic Team for the third consecutive season.

Pavon earns First Team honors for the first time in her career and grabs her fourth postseason award after being named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year in 2015 and landing on the All-Conference Second Team and All-Rookie team as a freshman. The Chicago, Illinois, native scored a career-high eight goals in 2017 and led the Colonials with 18 points on the year. The midfielder's three game-winners led GW and ranked tied for fourth in the conference.

Horn has posted a stellar season as GW's keeper and closes out her career earning postseason awards in each season as a Colonial. The Hamilton, Ontario, native tallied a career-high 89 saves on the season and ranks fourth on GW's all-time career saves list with 314 saves between the posts. In addition, Horn cemented her position as GW's all-time career shutouts leader in 2017 with her 31st career shutout and led the conference with a career-high 10 clean sheets, eight of which took place in A-10 play.

An international affairs and history major, Horn excelled in the classroom with a 3.80 GPA. A member of both the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll and GW Athletics Academic Dean's List throughout her career, Horn earns All-Academic honors for the third time.

McCormick served as the leader of GW's back line in 2017, starting in 17 of 19 matches this season. The center back helped GW post one of the top defenses in the A-10 with a league-best 0.47 GAA and eight shutouts in conference action. As a team captain, McCormick has been a key leader on and off the field and amassed 1,593 minutes in 2017. Her status as an All-Conference Second Team member marks the first A-10 postseason award of her career.

Starting in all 19 contests of her rookie season, Williams made an immediate impact on the GW front line and finished the season ranked third on the team with 11 points (4g, 3a). The midfielder posted a pair of game-winners in 2017 and scored the game-tying goal against James Madison in September en route to the squad's overtime victory to close out their non-conference schedule.
