Junior Defender Kelley Zagol
LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee junior defender
Kelley Zagol (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) earned a spot on the Second Team
NSCAA/adidas Women's Division III All-America squad, announced Wednesday
Zagol's appointment to the second team marks the Generals' first ever
women's soccer All-America selection, and highlights a string of honors
stretching through her career. She has been named all-conference three
times and all-region twice in the last three years.
After leading the W&L defense to a program-record 0.49 goals against
average and helping the Generals shutout the opposition a program-record
11 times, Zagol was named First Team All-South Region and First-Team All-ODAC
this season. In addition to her defensive exploits, she contributed four
goals and one assist to W&L's offensive efforts this season.
W&L wrapped up its season with a 15-2-3 overall record and a 9-1-1
mark in the ODAC. The Generals won their second-straight ODAC title and
advanced to the NCAA South Region championship match for the first time
in school history.
