Four Brown Women's Soccer Players Named All-Ivy

Nov. 14, 2002

Juniors Kristin Ferrell (Concord, MA), Sarah Gervais (Harrisville, RI), and Michaela Sewall (Newton, MA), and freshman Kim LaVere (Chatsworth, CA) were selected to the 2002 Women's Soccer All-Ivy Team.

Gervais and Ferrell were both First Team All-Ivy selections. Gervais led all Ivy League goalies with 129 saves, while posting a 1.35 GAA and a .854 save percentage with three shutouts. In the final weekend of the season, she became the first goaltender since October, 2001 to earn Ivy League Player of the Week honors with a nine-save performance in a 2-0 shutout over Yale.

A team captain this season, Ferrell, who has consistently been one of the top defenders in the league, was moved to the back last year after playing in the midfield as a freshman. An Honorable Mention All-Ivy selection in 2001, Ferrell currently has 15 career points in four goals and seven assists.

Rouding out Brown's All-Ivy selections are Sewall and LaVere. The team leader in assists with five, Sewall finished the season as the third-leading scorer with 2-5-9 totals. An outstanding player in the air, Sewall finished the season ranked 7th in the Ivy League in assists. LaVere, one of nine freshmen selected, started the season in the midfield, but finished as Brown's starting sweeper. The second-leading rookie on the team in points, she finished sixth in Brown scoring with one goal and three assists, including the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over Rhode Island.

The Brown women's soccer team finished the season with a 6-9-2 record, losing seven one-goal games. The Bears return eight of the top-ten scorers from this year for next season and nearly the entire defensive unit.
