LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior defender Kelley Zagol (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) was one of 11 players named to the 2004 CoSIDA Academic All-District III First Team in women's soccer.

Zagol, who also earned first team honors as a junior, is a neuroscience major with a 3.588 grade-point average.

Last season, Zagol garnered First Team All-ODAC, First Team All-State, First Team NSCAA All-South Region and Second Team NSCAA All-America accolades. As a sophomore, she was named Second Team All-ODAC and NSCAA First Team All-South Region. She was an Honorable Mention All-ODAC selection and was named to the All-ODAC Tournament Team as a freshman.

Zagol, who has helped W&L to back-to-back ODAC Championships, leads the third-seeded Generals into the ODAC Tournament semifinals where they will play second-seeded Virginia Wesleyan at 2:00 pm on Saturday at Lynchburg College. W&L enters the game with an 11-3-3 record.
