Team Places Five Players on the CAC All-Star Team and Advances to Semi-Finals
Making program history for the third year in a row, The Catholic University of America women’s soccer team placed five players on the Capital Athletic Conference all-star team and advanced to the conference tournament semifinals for the second time.
Two Cardinals landed on the first team, while three others made the second squad —marking the first time since joining the conference in 1990 that it has placed more than two members on the All-CAC team. In 2002 and 2003, the team posted record-breaking winning seasons.
Senior forward Jenny Aspinwall (Chantilly, Va./Chantilly) and junior midfielder Laura Kaye (Annandale, Va./Bishop Ireton) earned first-team honors. Aspinwall racked up 13 goals and four assists for 30 points this season, while Kaye notched eight goals and five assists for 21 points.
Second-team honors went to junior defender Jill Correnti (San Diego, Calif./Our Lady of Peace), senior defender Allison Campbell (Ridgewood, N.J./Immaculate Heart Academy) and freshman midfielder Diana Napolitano (Hasbrouck Heights, N.J./Immaculate Heart Academy), who nabbed six goals and two assists.
“This is the most talented team we’ve ever had,” Co-Head Coach J.P. Sousa said. “We knew we would place players on the All-CAC team, but we’re ecstatic we have five. That shows we’re one of the best teams in the conference.”
Both Catholic University and York College placed five players apiece on the all-star teams. Catholic tied Marymount University for fourth place in the league. Mary Washington, which captured its 13th CAC title, placed four players on the All-CAC team.
On the men’s side, senior midfielder Dan Kane (Salisbury, Md/Bennett) was named second team All-CAC.
The Capital Athletic Conference consists of Catholic University, Gallaudet University, Goucher College, Marymount University, University of Mary Washington, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Salisbury University and York College of Pennsylvania.
