April 23, 2013
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Navy women's lacrosse senior attacker Jasmine DePompeo (Sayville, N.Y.), sophomore goalie Annie Foky (Charlottesville, Va.) and head coach Cindy Timchal have received 2013 Patriot League women's lacrosse major awards, the conference office announced Tuesday.
DePompeo becomes the first player in Patriot League history to earn three consecutive Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year awards. Timchal has been named the Patriot League Coach of the Year for the second year in a row and Foky becomes the first Mid to earn the Patriot League's Defensive Player of the Year award.
DePompeo and Foky were joined by sophomore attacker Loren Generi (Bayport, N.Y.) and senior defender Brijet Mall (Cumming, Ga.) on the All-Patriot League First Team and senior attacker Kathy Young (Berwyn, Pa.) was voted to the All-Patriot League Second Team.
Additionally, DePompeo, Young and Generi were named to the Patriot League Women's Lacrosse All-Academic Team.
DePompeo is currently leading Navy, the Patriot League and the NCAA in total points (114) and points per game (6.71). The senior co-captain also ranks second in the NCAA with a Patriot League single-season record 61 assists. DePompeo has also tallied 53 goals, the sixth-best total in the nation.
DePompeo's 114 points this season are a Navy school record. She has scored at least five points in 14 games and has scored a goal in all 17 games. DePompeo tied the Navy single-game scoring record of 13 points at Longwood on April 2 with a school-record 10 assists. The 10 assists are tied for the second-best single-game total in NCAA history.
DePompeo had four game-winning goals, including two in double overtime against Jacksonville and American on the final weekend of the regular season.
DePompeo became both the school and the Patriot League's all-time leader in points (323) and assists (157) this season and she ranks fourth in NCAA history in career assists.
She also set a Patriot League record with six offensive player of the week awards this season.
DePompeo earns all-league first-team honors for the third-straight year and a Navy player has now won the last four offensive player of the year awards, as Erin Rawlick won in 2010.
The senior also earned a second selection to the Patriot League All-Academic Team. DePompeo has a 3.37 GPA as a political science major with a concentration in American law and politics. DePompeo became the first Navy women's lacrosse players to earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors when she was named to the third team in 2012.
Foky, in her first season as a starter, owns a 14-1 record with a 7.16 goals-against average and a .449 save percentage. She leads the team with 33 ground balls and has caused 11 turnovers.
Foky ranks third in the country in goals-against average and is 22nd in save percentage, while leading the Patriot League in both categories. Her 14 wins are tied for the Navy single-season goalie record.
In conference play, Foky was 6-0 with a miniscule 5.73 goals-against average.
She was a four-time Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week in 2013 and helped Navy hold 12 of 17 opponents to single-digit goals.
Foky is the first Navy goalie to receive all-league first-team honors.
Generi ranks second in the country and first in the Patriot League with 55 goals scored this season and her 96 draw controls are also tops in the conference. She also has 13 assists for a total of 68 points, which rank second to only DePompeo in the Patriot League.
Generi tied Navy single-game records by scoring eight goals with 11 draw controls in a win against UC Davis on March 27.
She also leads the Patriot League with five game-winning goals.
Generi was the 2012 Patriot League Rookie of the Year and an all-league second-team honoree. Generi was a three-time Patriot League weekly award winner this season.
The sophomore earns her first selection to the Patriot League All-Academic Team. Generi has a 3.20 GPA as an operations research major. She has been named to the Commandant's List three times.
Mall has started all 17 games for Navy this season on defense and has tallied 12 ground balls, 11 caused turnovers and five draw controls.
Mall is a key component of a Navy defense that leads the Patriot League and ranks fifth in the country in scoring defense (7.53). Navy has held 12 of its 17 opponents to single-digit goals this season and allowed just 6.00 goals per game in Patriot League play.
Mall was also named the 2013 Preseason All-Patriot League Team.
Young was Navy's fourth-leading scorer as she has tallied 42 points on 36 goals and six assists. She also had 39 draw controls, 14 ground balls and 12 free-position goals.
Young is Navy's career leader in games played (80), games started (80) and free-position goals (49), while ranking second in career goals (168).
Young is a three-time all-league honoree. She was named to the first team in 2012 and the second team in 2011.
Young was named to the Patriot League All-Academic Team for the third year in a row. She carries a 3.55 GPA as an ocean engineering major and is ranked No. 44 in her class in Military Order of Merit. She has been named to the Superintendent's List three times, the Dean's List twice and the Commandant's List seven times.
Timchal led Navy to its best regular season in program history at 16-1 and Navy's only loss was a three-goal setback to defending national champion Northwestern. She has led Navy to a second-straight Patriot League Regular Season title after going 6-0 in conference play.
Timchal coached Navy to its highest-ever ranking in the IWLCA Coaches Poll this season (No. 13 on April 8) and the Mids have been ranked in the deBeer Media Poll all year. Navy is also ranked No. 8 in the latest RPI rankings.
Timchal owns a career record of 428-109 (.797) in her 31st season as a head coach and is the sport's all-time leader in wins. She is 92-23 (.800) in six seasons at Navy and has the Mids seeking a fourth consecutive Patriot League Tournament title and NCAA Tournament berth.
No. 15/12 Navy (16-1, 6-0 PL) is hosting the four-team Patriot League Tournament at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium this weekend. Top-seeded Navy will host No. 4 Lafayette on Friday at 5 PM and No. 2 American will battle No. 3 Holy Cross on Friday at 7:45 PM. The semifinal winners will meet on Sunday at 12 noon for the tournament title and NCAA Tournament berth.
