Stephanie Verdoia (Salt Lake City, Utah) was named to the 2012 NCAA Division I Women's All-Pacific Region Third Team, announced by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
"Stephanie had a really solid season for us this year," said head coach Julie Woodward. "She got better each and every game and finished extremely strong for us. She is a very talented player and great leader. I am impressed but not surprised with the company she is in on her all-region selection."
Verdoia led the Redhawks with 10 goals, 21 points, 57 shots, 24 shots on goal, and four game-winning goals in 2012. She received several other honors for her performance this season including Second Team Academic All-District, as well as being named to the Western Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team. She was also named the WAC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 1-7, as she scored the team's third hat trick of the season in the squad's 5-1 win over Idaho.
This is Verdoia's first such honor, as Jordan Salisbury (Federal Way, Wash.) and Julia Besagno (Maple Valley, Wash.) received the same honor last season.
