Brown University juniors Kim LaVere (Chatsworth, CA), Meghan Schreck (Hudson, MA), and Hilary Wilson (Monterey, CA) and sophomores Jill Mansfield (East Windsor, NJ) and Kathryn Moos (Wayzata, MN) have been named to the 2004 All-Ivy Women's Soccer Team.
LaVere, Brown's starting sweeper, was named First Team All-Ivy for the first time in her career, after being named Honorable Mention All-Ivy as a freshman in 2002. She helped lead the Brown team to four shutouts, while also notching three points (1g, 1a).
The Ivy Rookie of the Year in 2003, Moos was recognized as an Honorable Mention All-Ivy selection for the second straight year. Brown's leading scorer last season, Moos finished her sophomore campaign as the team's second-leading scorer with 11 points (4g, 3a).
Joining Moos as an Honorable Mention All-Ivy selection are Mansfield, Schreck and Wilson, all making their first appearances on the All-Ivy team. Mansfield helped to lead Brown's defense, while adding five points (1g, 3a). Schreck finished as the Bears' leading scorer with 14 points (6g, 2a), including a team-high three game-winning goals. Her six goals ranked eighth in the League. Wilson, the Bears' starting keeper, appeared in every minute of every game, while posting a 1.16 GAA and an .879 save percentage. She earned four shutouts and finished the season with 145 saves, tying the Brown single-season save mark, set by Kathy Kostic '87 in 1986. Her 145 saves also led the Ivy League and was 65 more than the second-leading save leader.
The Brown women's soccer team finished the season with a 7-10-0 record, including a 6-2-0 mark at home, and a 2-5-0 Ivy League record. The Bears return 10 starters for next season along with nine of the top-team scorers from this season, and the entire defensive unit.
