Greensboro, NC (11/12/03) -- Junior Kimberly Mullen (Massapequa Park, NY/Massapequa [Nassau CC]) and freshman Jennifer Mundy (Murrells Inlet, SC/Waccamaw) earned Second Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) honors according to a vote of the league's 10 head coaches. Junior Flo Lance (Georgetown, SC/Georgetown), sophomore Heather Ruggiero (Lexington, MA/Lexington), senior Megan Barolet-Fogarty (Gainesville, FL/Gainesville), freshman Rachel Gwin (Titusville, NJ/Pennington School) and senior Lori Layton (Westerville, OH/New Albany) received honorable mention laurels.
A forward, Mullen earned second-team all-league honors for the second straight season. Despite missing three games with a knee injury, she still finished second on the team with 26 points on a club-high 12 goals and two assists. She ranks second among ODAC goals per game leaders (0.75) and sixth in points per game (1.62). Mullen's 12 goals mark the 11th-highest total in school history and give her 34 career tallies, the fourth-best total in school history. She stands third on Guilford's career scoring list with 81 points on 34 goals and 13 assists. Mullen scored goals in eight of her 16 contests and had three multi-goal games. She netted a season-high seven points in the Quakers' 7-0 win at North Carolina Wesleyan on three goals and an assist. Her tally lifted Guilford past Dallas, 1-0, September 13.
Mundy, a midfielder, led the Quakers in scoring and ranks 10th in the ODAC with 28 points on 12 goals and four assists. She stands seventh among the league's goals leaders and 10th in points per game. Her 28 points and 12 goals each stand 11th on Guilford's season charts. Mundy captured the league's Player of the Week Award for the week of September 22. She scored six goals in three ODAC wins that week, including a career- and team-high four goals in a September 22 win over Emory & Henry. Mundy found the back of the net in seven games, including three times in an 8-0 ODAC triumph over Sweet Briar. Her four assists stood third on the team.
Lance (left) finished fifth on the team in scoring with 14 points on six goals and two assists in her first season since transferring from Smith College. She scored 13 of her points in ODAC contests and enjoyed two-goal outings in league wins over Randolph-Macon Woman's College and Sweet Briar. Lance had a three-point match at Hollins with a goal and an assist.
Ruggiero split time between defense and forward in her second season, after playing exclusively in the back as a freshman. She responded with a career-high 16 points on five goals and six assists. Ruggiero ranked fourth on the team in scoring and second in assists. She tallied the game-winning goal and two assists for a personal-best four points in the Quakers' 7-0 win over Emory & Henry. Her goal was the difference in Guilford's 1-0 league win over Randolph-Macon October 4, the team's first over the Yellow Jackets since 1985. The Quakers were 6-1 when Ruggiero scored a point.
A center midfielder, Barolet-Fogarty (left) enjoyed her fourth and finest soccer season at Guilford. She finished third on the team in scoring with seven goals and nine assists for 23 points, all career highs. Her nine assists lead the ODAC and rank fourth in school history. Barolet-Fogarty started all 20 matches for Guilford, which extended her streak of consecutive starts to 79, a Quakers' record. She earned the ODAC's Women's Soccer Player of the Week Award October 27 for scoring a goal and four assists during Guilford's 2-1 week.
Barolet-Fogarty leaves Guilford ranked fifth in school history with 52 points. Her 20 career assists mark the program's fourth-highest total and her 16 goals stand ninth. She is a dean's list triple major in sociology and anthropology, international studies and African-American studies and earned Verizon Academic All-District III honors this year.
One of two freshmen to start all 20 matches, Gwin (right) totaled two goals and four assists for eight points from her outside midfielder's position. She netted her goals in the Quakers' 7-1 ODAC win at Randolph-Macon Woman's College, including the game-winner. Gwin added two assists in Guilford's 7-0 league triumph at Hollins.
Layton started the year in the midfield but moved to the back following a season-ending injury to Becky Craig. Layton, a team captain, developed into the club's top defender and helped the Quakers post eight shutouts and a 1.81 goals against average. Both figures stand second in school history. Her lone goal of the year broke a 1-1 tie with league-rival Bridgewater and gave the Quakers the 2-1 win. Layton won four letters at Guilford and concludes her career with four goals and six assists for 14 points in 73 career contests.
The six players helped coach Eric Lewis' club post an 11-9 record, which ties the school mark for overall wins in a season. The team's 7-4 ODAC record set the school standard for league victories. Guilford reached the ODAC Tournament for the 13th straight time before falling in the quarterfinals at Eastern Mennonite, 2-0. The Quakers expect 25 letter winners back in 2004.
