Alums Honored Across College Soccer

Alums Honored Across College Soccer

FC Wisconsin alums are having an unprecedented year of success in college soccer.  Only halfway through the fall season, multiple players have already earned conference individual honors:

  • Kate Del Fava (Illinois State) - Kate is having one of the best season's of any senior in the country.  She has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week a whopping 5 times (a new MVC record), named as one of only 30 players across the country who are candidates for the Senior Class Award, and is in the top 5 of the country in goals, points, and goals-per-game ... as a midfielder.
  • Dani Rhodes (Wisconsin) - Dani was named the Big 10 Offensive Player of the Week last week, before scoring twice against Michigan on October 3.
  • Jen Wandt (Baylor) - Wandt continues to shine in the nets and was named BIg 12 Defensive Player of the Week for her stand-out performance against USC.
  • Emma Jaskaniec (Wisconsin) - A true freshman, Jaskaniec earned Big 10 Co-Freshman of the Week honors last week after scoring the game-winner for Wisconsin over Penn State.
  • Jordyn Bloomer (Wisconsin) - A redshirt junior, Bloomer earned Big 10 Goalkeeper of the Week on October 8 after recording her 7th shut-out of 2019.

Beyond these stand-out individual performers, there are currently 7 alums playing on teams in college soccer's Division I Top 25:

  • Wisconsin (Payton Wesley, Dani Rhodes, Jordyn Bloomer, Emma Jaskaniec)
  • Louisville (Taylor Kerwin)
  • Washington State (Elyse Bennett)
  • SMU (Jess Cooley)

Congrats to all of these alums, and all 39 alums across college soccer this season!
