CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Four University of New Hampshire women's soccer student-athletes received America East All-Conference honors as announced by the conference Wednesday afternoon.
Senior defender Elizabeth Curry (Bremerton, Wash.) claimed All-Conference Second Team honors while freshman midfielder Kirstyn Corder (Overland Park, Kansas) was a unanimous selection to the All-Rookie Team.
Curry, junior keeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) and classmate Kristi Zarrilli (Gorham, Maine) were selected to the All-Academic Team, the first selection of the kind for all three. A student-athlete (of at least sophomore academic standing) must have a minimum cumulative grade-point-average of 3.30 and be a starter or prominent reserve who has played in at least 50% of the team's games this season to be eligible for the All-Academic Team.
The distinction is Curry's first of her career. This season, she has played in 17 of the 18 games New Hampshire has played, starting each game. The defender has also provided the squad with an offensive kick, scoring goal against Northeastern (Aug. 31) and tallying nine shots.
Corder has had a fantastic rookie campaign for UNH as she leads the team in goals (5) and points (13), and has also dished out three assists. She ranks second on the squad in shots (34) and is tied for first in shots-on-goal (19). Thefreshman is also in the top-10 in five offensive categories in America East.
