Hoy, Lazo, Shackford Earn NSCAA All-Region Honors
The top two goal scorers for the Princeton women's soccer team as well as the Tigers' head coach have earned regional honors from the NSCAA, the national coaches' association has announced.
Senior Jen Hoy, on top of her Ivy League Player of the Year and NSCAA second-team All-America awards, has been named to the first-team all-region. Hoy finished with a league-best 18 goals this season, ranking in the top 10 in Division I in total goals, goals per game and points per game. Hoy also earned a spot on the ECAC Division I All-Star team as one of 12 honorees from schools stretching from Massachusetts down to North Carolina.
Lazo, who had her 11th and final goal of the season in Princeton's NCAA second-round match against Marquette, was named to the NSCAA second team All-Mid-Atlantic. She was a first-team All-Ivy League honoree this season.
Julie Shackford was named the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year for the third time in her career at Princeton, after 2001 and 2004. Shackford helped guide the team to a 14-4-1 record this season that saw the team win an Ivy League title, a first-round NCAA tournament game and receive votes in the final national NSCAA poll.
