Zambricki named to NSCAA Women’s Soccer All-America Team

Washington University in St. Louis sophomore midfielder Anna Zambricki was named to the 2012 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Continental Tire Women’s Soccer Division III All-America Team, as announced Dec. 4 by the association.


Zambricki, a first-team selection, is the ninth student-athlete in school history to earn All-America accolades. She is also just the sixth player in school history to earn first-team honors joining Jennifer Haddad (1992), Rachel Sweeney (1997), MeghanMarie Fowler-Finn (2006), Libby Held (2008) and Caryn Rosoff (2009).

“Anna Zambricki is an amazing athlete that creates opportunities for herself and her teammates all over the field,” said Washington University head coach Jim Conlon. “As a student-athlete she excels on and off the field and makes the people around her better. It is her determination that truly drives her to be a special woman, friend and player.”

Zambricki led the University Athletic Association (UAA) in goals (14) and points (34), and was second in game-winning goals (six). She earned UAA Co-Most Valuable Player and first-team all-UAA honors by the conference. Zambricki recorded a pair of hat tricks on the road in UAA play, leading the Bears to a pair of 3-0 wins at Carnegie Mellon University (Sept. 30) and at Case Western Reserve University (Oct. 29).

She has started 34 of 36 games in her career on the Danforth Campus, and ranks sixth in school history in game-winning goals (10), seventh in goals (24) and ninth in points (58).

Washington University completed the 2012 season with a school record 19-2-1 overall mark, and advanced to the NCAA Division III Quarterfinals for the sixth time in school history. The Bears also won their eighth UAA Championship with a 6-0-1 record. WUSTL was ranked No. 5 in the final NSCAA/Continental Tire Post-Season Top-25 Poll.

Zambricki will be recognized at the annual All-America Luncheon, to be held on Saturday, Jan. 19, in conjunction with the 2013 NSCAA Convention in Indianapolis.
