Hathorn Named Coach of the Year

LEXINGTON, Va. -- The Old Dominion Athletic Conference released its all-conference women's soccer team on Wednesday afternoon and Washington and Lee placed four players on the first team and took the Coach of the Year award.

Head Coach Jan Hathorn took home the ODAC Coach of the Year award for the third time. She guided the Generals to a 12-6 overall record and a trip to the ODAC Tournament Championship game. Hathorn now holds a 129-88-9 overall record at W&L.

Senior goalkeeper Lauren Harris (Cincinnati, Ohio/Indian Hill), senior fullback Shana Levine (Hudson, Ohio/Hudson), junior midfielder Kate Bidwell (Pensacola, Fla./Escambia) and freshman forward Fontaine Marcoux (Washington, D.C./The Potomac School) all earned first-team honors. Junior midfielder Drew Powers (Atlanta, Ga./The Lovett School) and sophomore forward Jenny Thomas (High Point, N.C./High Point Central) both were named honorable mention All-ODAC.

Harris started all 18 games in the net for W&L this season. She accumulated 133 saves and held a 0.864 save percentage. She finished her career with a school-record 1.00 goals-against-average and places second in the W&L record books with 27 career shutouts after posting six in 2000.

Levine has been named to the All-ODAC First Team for the second consecutive season. She tallied one goal and two assists this season to bring her career totals to 15 goals and seven assists. Levine was also named to the ODAC All-Tournament Team.

Bidwell came on strong at the end of the season leading the Generals into the ODAC Tournament, scoring the game-winning goal in double overtime in the 2-1 quarterfinal win over Eastern Mennonite. She tallied eight goals and three assists during the season.

Marcoux led Washington and Lee all season long in a successful freshman campaign. She led the Generals in goals (14), assists (9) and shots (90). Her nine assists is the third-best single season total in school history, while her 37 single-season points is the fourth-highest total in W&L history.

Powers started nine contests for the Generals and tallied three goals on 17 shots, while Thomas accumulated four goals and six assists for 14 points in only 13 games.
