Nov. 5, 2014

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland women's soccer senior Colleen Folan was one of 11 student-athletes to be named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team, the conference office announced Wednesday.

Folan, a business administration and accounting major who carries a cumulative grade-point average of 3.859, was one of three who also earned All-Patriot League honors following the regular season. The senior goalkeeper was also one of three goalkeepers to be selected to the academic team.

A team captain, Folan helped Loyola earn the No. 6 seed in the 2014 Patriot League Quarterfinals. Prior to the game, Folan and the Greyhounds held the second-longest shutout streak in NCAA Division I women's soccer, second to UCLA, the 2013 NCAA National Champion.

The Downingtown, Pennsylvania, native carded 10 shutouts during her senior campaign, the third most in Loyola's single season record books.

Folan made 75 saves during her time in goal for the Greyhounds, putting together a .773 career-save percentage.

A member of the 2013-2014 Patriot League Honor Roll, Folan is also a member of Loyola's Green and Grey Society and the current Co-President of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee.

Folan is joined by American's Marley Jennings, Army's Katie Holder, Boston University's Taylor Krebs and Alyssa Parisi, Bucknell's Hannah Bonotto and Courtney Nelson, Colgate's Caroline Brawner, Holy Cross' Carly McCabe, Lafayette's Kaelin King and Lehigh's Paige Elliott. Brawner was named the Patriot League Women's Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
