Nov. 8, 2006

(San Francisco, CA) - The University of San Francisco women's soccer team earned an unprecedented six All-Conference honors for the 2006 season as announced by the West Coast Conference today.

Head coach Pamela Kalinoski commented on the honors. "Given the talent in the WCC, it's tremendous for our players who were mentioned. It's a great honor to be identified as one of the top players in our conference."

Senior forward Chelsea Hunt was named to the All-WCC Second Team for the third consecutive season. No other women's soccer player has earned three consecutive honors in school history. Hunt had four goals and four assists for 12 points on the season. She ends her career with 28 goals, 12 assists and 68 points.

"Being named to the second team is a testament to Chelsea's overall ability to contribute to this program. The WCC coaches notice how important she was to this team and honored her accordingly," Kalinoski said.

Five players were named Honorable Mentions, including senior defender Hilary Fisher, junior defender Kara Breithaupt, and sophomores, defender Jessica Duty, midfielder Katherine Kimure, and goalkeeper Katie Hodgson.

"I'm so excited for Hilary Fisher to end her career as an Honorable Mention. She had to change positions at the beginning of the year and she had a tremendous season, as evidenced by her WCC honor," Kalinoski commented.

Breithaupt earned her second honor, as she was named to the WCC Freshman team in 2004.

"It's good to see Kara get honored again. She had a wonderful season and was so important to us in the backfield this season. I'm glad the WCC coaches realized her contributions to this team," Kalinoski added.

Duty earned her third honor after being named to both the Freshman and Honorable Mention teams last season.

"Duty had a great year and it's nice to see her repeat in the Honorable Mention category," Kalinoski said.

Hodgson was named to the All-Freshman team last season and earned her second honor in 2006.

"Katie had a wonderful year in goal this year and I'm glad that she was recognized by the coaches," Kalinoski added.

Kimure earned her first ever WCC honor.

"Katherine was a difference maker for us this year, especially in WCC games and I'm proud that she was acknowledged for her play," Kalinoski commented.
