PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University sophomore Alyssa Zeoli was named to the Daktronics/Division II Conference Commissioners Association All-America second team.
She becomes the first player in program history to be named a Daktronics/Division II Conference Commissioners Association All-American.
This honor adds to the list of postseason accomplishments for Zeoli, which includes the NSCAA All-East Region third team, Daktronics/Division II Conference Commissioners Association All-East Region first team, Northeast-10 All-Conference first team and Capital One Academic All-America third-team selections. In just her second season, Zeoli has elevated herself into the Pace record books. In her 32nd collegiate game, she scored her 13th career goal and passed Danielle LaSalle to tie for eighth all-time on the Pace career goals list.
After a trio of goals in the next four games, Zeoli climbed up the ladder to advance to seventh all time. She concluded the season with three goals in her final two games and currently ranks tied for fourth all-time with 19 career goals. She finished the season with 18 goals and 40 points, which currently ranks her tied for fourth and 11th in the nation, respectively. In addition, both totals are good for second on the Northeast-10 Conference leaderboards. Zeoli really turned it on toward the end of the year, scoring 15 goals in her final 12 games of the season. During her historic season, Zeoli also set two all-time single-season records for goals and points. Her 18 goals on the year shattered the previous record of 13 set by Kelly Fazio in 2005 and her 40 total points broke the previous standing record of 29 set by Marta Anderson-Winchell also in 2005. The impressive sophomore midfielder helped lead Pace to their first NE-10 Tournament appearance since the 2011 season. "It's an honor to receive this All-American award; however, this wouldn't be possible without such great teammates and coaches," said Zeoli. "I am blessed to be a part of the Pace Women's Soccer program." In her final two years, Zeoli needs nine goals and 29 points to set the all-time records, respectively, for each category.
