Michigan 2013 Spring Season Wrap-Up
The team had their end-of-the-season banquet on Saturday night, and it was a nice wrap-up of the season. There are 4 players who played their last season with the team this year: Seniors Jamee Jacobson, Claire Gadra, and Rachel Stattler, as well as ("rookie") Grad student Stephanie Gerretsen. While it was a somewhat disappointing trip to Nationals where the team went 1-3, it was a great experience for the team to get to compete against the best teams in the country, and to get to spend another week with their best friends, playing their favorite sport, in Colorado. In addition, for the 17 players who return; the experience was invaluable as they all got great "big game" experience. Everyone played a lot in every game, and the team is excited to regroup for next year. The following Wolverines were given team awards at the Banquet:
Defense MVP: Jamee Jacobson (Chicago, IL/Lake Forest), Midfield MVP: Julianne Patterson (Rochester, NY/Victor), Attack MVP: Katie Mezwa (Rochester Hills, MI/Sacred Heart), Rookie of the Year: Ellen Manson (Bloomfield Hills, MI/Marian), Most Improved: Sydney Franko (Farmington, MI/St.Mary's Academy), and Coaches' Award: Val Van Hulle (Cleveland, OH/Magnificat).
In addition, Jamee Jacobson (Chicago, IL/Lake Forest) was also named to the "WCLA All-Tournament Team" for the 2nd time in her career; Jamee also earned this distinction in 2011 (her Sophomore year).
Academic All-Americans Announced
Junior Nana Kikuchi (Bloomfield Hills, MI/Cranbrook) is the lone Wolverine to earn the National distinction of "Academic All-American" this year. She also earned this award last year as a Sophomore. Nana is a dual degree student who will graduate with a BBA (Bachelor in Business Administration) and a BS (Bachelor of Science) in Financial Mathematics.
Wolverines earn Distinction in Nationals' Award Ceremony
The regular season awards continued for the Wolverines at the National Tournament Opening Ceremony as the All-American Teams and Player of the Year awards were announced. This year, Michigan placed one player on both the 1st and 2nd All-American Teams. Congratulations to junior Julianne Patterson (Rochester, NY/Victor) for being named 1st Team All-American as a Midfielder. Additionally, congratulations go to senior captain Jamee Jacobson (Chicago, Ill./Lake Forest) for being named a 2nd Team All-American Defender. These two players have shown outstanding effort and skill throughout the year and are very deserving of their accolades; they have made their team, friends, and family very proud.
