Nov. 7, 2007
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington women's soccer defender Jillian Morgan (Douglassville, PA/Owen J. Roberts) has been named to the Atlantic 10 Women's Soccer All-Rookie Team and senior midfielder Nicole Trickett (Eugene, OR/South Eugene) was selected to the Academic All-Conference team, the league announced on Wednesday. The league's head coaches voted on the All-Conference teams while the sports information directors selected the Academic All-Conference players.
Morgan started all 18 games for the Colonials as a fixture on the defensive line, where she helped to hold opponents to just 1.67 goals per game. The freshman, who was also named to the 2007 A-10 Preseason All-Rookie Team, contributed offensively and recorded nine shots.
Trickett, a three-time A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll selection and two-year tri-captain, makes the Academic All-Conference team for the first time in her four-year career. During her time at GW, Trickett appeared in over 70 games and recorded seven points, including three goals, while leading the Colonial midfield.
In the same voting, teammates Mandi Bäck and Niki Reed of Dayton have been named the A-10 Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, respectively. Charlotte's Lindsey Ozimek earned Midfielder of the Year honors, becoming the first-ever recipient of the award. Ozimek was also named the Student-Athlete of the Year.
Rhode Island's Jessica Babice garnered Rookie of the Year honors and Jon Lipsitz of Charlotte was selected as Coach of the Year. Lipsitz earns the award after leading Charlotte to its second consecutive regular season crown and the top seed in this week's A-10 Championship.
The Atlantic 10 Championship for women's soccer begins tomorrow, Nov. 8, on the campus of Charlotte, with the title game scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 11.
George Washington finished the 2007 season 8-9-1 after starting 3-0 for the first time in program history. The Colonials thrice won two consecutive matches and had 12 different players record at least two points.
