Women's Soccer All-Ivy Selections Announced

PRINCETON, N.J. – Five members of the Brown women's soccer team earned All-Ivy honors in an announcement made by the league on Thursday. 

 

Defender Annie Gillen (San Clemente, Calif.), forwards Chloe Cross (Seattle, Wash.) and Mika Siegelman (Piedmont, Calif.), as well as goalkeeper MC Barrett (Ithaca, N.Y.) garnered Second Team All-Ivy accolades for the Bears.  In addition, sophomore midfielder Charlotte Beach (New Haven, Conn.) earned Honorable Mention All-Ivy honors for her performance this season.

 

Gillen earns Second Team All-Ivy for the second consecutive after registering a team best six assists in 2013, good for a third place tie amongst Ivy League assist leaders.  Appearing in all 17 games this season, Gillen has helped backstop the Bears defense, allowing just 1.12 goals per game.

 

Cross has started all 17 games for the Bears in 2013, tallying a team best seven goals (three game-winning) and 19 points overall.  Cross' 19 points ranks her fifth overall in Ivy League point scoring while finishing third overall in shots with 61.  Her three game-winning strikes are good for an eight-way tie for first in the league in that category alongside teammate, Mika Siegelman.

 

Siegelman, a senior captain, tallied three goals (all game-winning) and two assists in 17 starts this season.  All of Siegelman's points this season have come in wins, including a strike in double overtime in a key 3-2 conference victory over Cornell on October 27.

 

Barrett earns Second Team All-Ivy honors after recording a .800 save percentage and 1.00 goals against average while playing in the second half of all 17 games this season.  The senior finishes her career at Brown with a 23-14-4 overall record.

 

Beach earns Honorable Mention All-Ivy accolades after posting two assists in 17 games for the Bears.
