Anika Washburn Earns All-America Honors

Sophomore midfielder Anika Washburn of the Case Western Reserve University women's soccer team has been named to the All-America Second Team.

Washburn becomes the first Case Western Reserve women's soccer player to receive this honor in the ten years that has announced a Women's All-America Team.

In addition to this honor, Washburn has also earned 2019 CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team honors, All-Great Lakes Region First Team honors, University Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Year of the Year honors and was selected as an All-UAA First Team honoree.

Washburn started all 19 games for the Spartans this season, leading the squad with a program-record 33 points on a program-record 14 goals and five assists. She led the UAA in the regular season in both points and goals. Washburn also set a school-record with seven game-winning goals. She set the program-record for goals and points during the Spartans' 2-0 win over then 12th-ranked Chicago on November 1st.

Washburn and the Spartans received a NCAA Tournament bid for just the second time in the program's history during the 2019 campaign. Case Western Reserve ended the season with a 13-5-1 record under first-year Head Coach Jen Simonetti. The 13 wins tie a CWRU women's soccer record, while the team's 46 goals set a new program record.
