Brown Places Four on 2012 All-Ivy Women’s Soccer Team

PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown University junior Mika Siegelman (Piedmont, CA) was named First Team All-Ivy in a vote by the League's eight head coaches, headlining a group of four different Bears who earned All-Ivy honors. Joining Siegelman on the All-Ivy teams are junior Emily Wingrove (Westwood, MA) and sophomore Annie Gillen (San Clemente, CA), who earned Second Team honors, as well as junior Amber Bledsoe (Cincinnati, OH), who was named Honorable Mention All-Ivy. All four earned All-League recognition for the first time in their careers.

A three-year starter in the midfield, Siegelman finished second on the team in scoring with 3-3-9 totals, while leading the Bears with three game-winning goals, third in the Ivy League. A dynamic midfielder, Siegelman has played in 48 career games (38 starts) and has 7-6-20 totals. Her nine points this season was a career-high for points in a season.  

Gillen and Wingrove, both first-year starters, helped to lead the Bears' defensive unit that posted a team goals against average of 1.10 and recorded seven shutouts during the year. Both started 16 games this year, with Gillen helping to guard the center of the field and Wingrove anchoring the left side. Wingrove, who played up front during the first two years of her career, also scored one goal this year and now has two for her career. Gillen has played in 20 career games, starting 17, while Wingrove has appeared in 38 career games (17 starts).

Bledsoe started 16 games on the year, playing five complete games. She recorded 43 saves on 51 shots to earn a 0.74 goals against average (6th all-time at Brown, 2nd in the Ivy League and 43rd in the nation) and an Ivy League-leading .843 save percentage (40th in the nation). She posted a 4-3-1 record, including one shutout, and was also a part of six other shutouts with classmate MC Barrett. A 2010 recipient of the Dobson-Kay Coaches' Award, Bledsoe earned First Team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District honors earlier this month. In 46 career games, all starts, Bledsoe has a 0.89 GAA (2nd all-time at Brown), and a .808 save percentage (11th all-time at Brown).
