When it came to scoring in the women’s soccer, no one did it better than Debbie Ching. The Honolulu, Hawaii native graduated from Brown owning the career records for goals (40) and points (93), which both lasted until this fall, and was sixth on the all-time assist list (13). A three-time first team All-Ivy selectee, Ching also earned All-East and All-New England recognition. As a sophomore, the only season she was omitted from first-team All-Ivy honors, she accepted the Ivy League Tournament Most Valuable Player Trophy instead and led Brown to its first-ever Ivy League title. Two years later, she helped the Bruins to a second Ivy crown, which started a streak of consecutive Ivy League titles that still continues today. Her career highlight came that season, as she scored two goals in a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Harvard, connecting on the gamewinner with 30 seconds left in the game, which clinched the Ivy title for Brown. Ching currently resides in New York City where she is a graduate student at the Columbia University School of Business.
