Pair Of Bulldogs Earn All-Ivy Recognition

Forster Named First Team; Leroy Selected To Second Team

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – A pair of seniors on the Yale women's soccer team have earned All-Ivy recognition. Midfielder Kristen Forster, who led the team in scoring with seven goals and 17 points, was named to the first team, while Torrey Leroy, who anchored a stingy Yale defense, earned second team recognition.

Forster, A Trumbull, Conn., native, had another strong season for the Bulldogs, finishing among the Ivy leaders in goals, points and game-winning goals. Four of her seven goals were game-winners, including against Iona in overtime. Her 17 career assists are tied for the sixth most in school history. Forster earned All-Ivy recognition for the third time in her career. She was a second team selection in 2010 and was the 2009 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, sharing the honor with Princeton's Alison Nabatoff.

Leroy, a West Hartford, Conn., native capped her Yale career with an outstanding senior season. She started 16 games and played a key role on a defense that posted five shutouts. As a junior, she was named the team's defensive most valuable player. In her career, she appeared in 64 games, including making 50 starts.

The Bulldogs finished with an 8-7-2 overall record, the 10th time in the last 11 years they have had a winning overall record.
