Philadelphia, Pa. - The Atlantic 10 Conference announced the 2008 Women's Soccer Preseason All-Conference and All-Rookie teams this afternoon, with the Rams being well represented. Three women's soccer players, senior Kim Boulos (Croton, N.Y./Croton Harmon), junior Courtney Fedge (Bellport, N.Y./Bellport), and sophomore Katie McDermott (Tucson, Ariz./Catalina Foothills) were named to the Preseason All-Conference team, while freshman Mariella Romano (Whitestone, N.Y./Townsend Harris) was named to the Preseason All-Rookie Team.
McDermott, a Second Team All-Conference and All-Rookie Team selection last fall, stepped into the line-up immediately in her first season, playing in all 20 games, starting 19. She was the top freshman scorer on the Rams with four goals and two assists for ten points, while helping the Rams' defense record seven shutouts. She was also named to the Atlantic 10 All-Championship team, as Fordham advanced to the championship game for the second straight year, while also garnering Third Team NSCAA All-Northeast Region.
