PULLMAN, Wash. --- Senior goalkeeper Lindsey Jorgensen was named most valuable player at the Washington State soccer banquet Saturday night at the Hilltop Restaurant, highlighting the Cougars' annual postseason banquet.

Jorgensen, who is WSU's all-time leader in shutouts, minutes in goal, and saves, also shared most inspirational honors with fellow senior Natalie Kehl.

Sophomore Rachel Rodrick and senior Liz Duncan were named co-offensive MVP, while Shay Hobby earned defensive MVP for the second time in her two-year career. Rodrick and Duncan combined to score 29 points in 2001.

Christie Spear was named rookie of the year despite having her season cut short by injury in the ninth match.

Freshman Megan Cecchini received the academic award, which is given to the player with the highest semester grade point average, and senior Beth Childs was honored for her work in the weight room.
