MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College women’s soccer players Julia Favorito and Elizabeth Foody have earned All-American honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
The duo helped lead the team to its most successful season in school history, advancing to the NCAA Division III final four for the first time with a school record 17 wins to go along with a pair of losses and two ties.
Favorito, a senior, earned first-team honors after being named the NESCAC Player of the Year as a forward/midfielder. The three-time All-NESCAC selection led the league with nine assists this season, second on Middlebury’s all-time single-season list.
She finished her career with 23 helpers, just one behind the school’s all-time mark. Favorito finished the season fourth on the squad with four goals and second with 17 points. The tri-captain played in 72 games as a Panther, also scoring eight goals.
Foody, a second-team selection, is now a two-time All-American after holding down a spot on the first team a year ago. She is also a two-time first-team All-NESCAC choice.
The senior goalkeeper surrendered just 11 goals this year for a 0.60 goals against average, placing her fourth on the school’s single-season list. She finished the season 14-2-2 with six shutouts and has a career mark of 29-4-5. Foody is the school’s all-time leader with a 0.49 goals against average, while ranking second with an .876 save percentage.
