Pope and Noseworthy named AUS all-stars
Oct. 31, 2013 (MONCTON, N.B.) - Atlantic University Sport announced the 2013 women's soccer all-stars and major award winners as selected by the conference's 10 head coaches on Thursday night. Two Memorial Sea-Hawks rookies were recognized for their play this season. Rookie striker Jane Pope was named a first team all-star while teammate Jessie Noseworthy was named second team conference all-star.
Pope, a striker from St. John's, finished the season tied for fourth in the league with five goals. Three of her goals were game-winners, which put her second in the AUS in that category. Pope played in all 13 regular season games for Memorial and has shown a versatility and talent that suggest a very successful university career lies ahead.
Noseworthy, also a stirker from St. John's, was a standout on the field for head coach Walt Mavin in her first university season. The rookie had three goals in her first season. She demonstrated a strong ability in the air and played with an aggressive style that presented difficulty for defenders to contend with.
Third-year Cape Breton Capers striker Karolyne Blain was named the AUS most valuable player at Thursday night’s awards banquet, hosted in Moncton by Mount Allison University.
Other AUS major award winners announced were Acadia’s Emily Nickerson of Coldbrook, N.S., who was named the rookie of the year; Acadia’s Alana Fairfax of Somerset, N.S, who received the student-athlete community service award; and Cape Breton Capers head coach Stephen ‘Ness’ Timmons, who was selected as the coach of the year.
