CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - A pair of Loyola University Maryland women's soccer captains -- graduate student goalkeeper Colleen Folan and senior midfielder Rosy Hayes -- were named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team, the League office announced Wednesday.
Hayes, the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year, was one of three first-team honorees on the 11 member all-academic team, while Folan was one of six repeat honorees.
A speech pathology major carrying a 3.556 grade-point average, Hayes led the Patriot League in points (11) and finished the season tied for first in goals (4) and assists (3) in League only games. In Tuesday night's Patriot League quarterfinal game against Colgate, she converted the penalty kick that advanced the Greyhounds to the semifinal round.
Throughout the regular season, Hayes scored eight goals, including four game-winners.
Folan, a Downingtown, Pennsylvania, native, was one of two goalkeepers to be selected to the all-academic team. A business administration major with a 3.844 GPA, Folan will start work as an accountant at the end of her soccer career.
This season, Folan, who stopped two of the Raiders' penalty kicks in the shootout Tuesday night, has played 1496 minutes in goal, posting a 1.56 goals-against average and a .711 save percentage. She has allowed 26 goals and stopped 64 shots.
The fourth-seeded Greyhounds will make their first appearance in the semifinal round of the Patriot League Tournament Friday when they face top-seeded Boston University at Nickerson Field. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.
