PRINCETON, N.J. – Wrapping up a highly-successful campaign that ended with a 12-3-1 record, 5-1-1 in conference play, six student-athletes from the Harvard women's soccer team have earned All-Ivy League recognition, while junior Murphy Agnew was tabbed the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year.
Agnew joined first-year Gabby DelPico on the first team, while first-year Angela Caloia, sophomore Sophie Hirst and senior Kimaya Cole headline the second team. Senior goalkeeper Kat Hess rounds out the recognition with an honorable mention nod. The six honorees are Harvard's most since 2016.
A unanimous first-team selection, Agnew becomes the 10th Ivy League Player of the Year in program history, and the sixth to win both Rookie and Player of the Year over the course of a Harvard career. Agnew led the Ivy League with four goals and 11 points during Ivy League play, and finished with seven goals and 22 points this season. The All-Ivy League recognition is the third in-a-row for the junior, who was a second team selection in 2017 and a first team honoree in 2018.
DelPico tallied a high-octane first year at Harvard, ending with seven goals and 20 points, including three goals and nine points during conference play. One of three first-year student-athletes on the first team, all three of DelPico's goals in Ivy play were game winners.
The Ivy League leader in assists, Caloia capped her first year ranked fourth nationally in assists per game (0.69), and finished with six goals, 11 assists and a team-leading 23 points on the season. She tallied two goals and three helpers in conference play.
One of the top midfielders in the conference, Hirst earns her first All-Ivy League honor with a second team selection. Hirst had five goals and 15 points on the season, including the game-winner early in the season against Northwestern.
Wreaking havoc on opposing offenses, Cole tallies her first-career All-Ivy honor with a second-team selection. Cole helped Harvard in shutting out eight opponents in 2019, including four in Ivy League play. A co-captain of the team, Cole started at center back during each Ivy contest.
Hess was one of the most productive goalkeepers in the conference, earning her All-Ivy League honorable mention status. She played a part in six shutouts on the season, including all four in Ivy play. Hess finished with only 10 goals allowed, and a goals-against average of 0.82 and a save percentage of .841.
