Freshman of the Year, Seven Cardinal Lauded

Nov 8, 2022

STANFORD, Calif. – Freshman Elise Evans was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, highlighting a group of seven Cardinal players who landed on All-Pac-12 teams.
In addition to being named the Pac-12's top freshman, Evans earned a spot on the all-conference first team alongside senior midfielder Maya Doms. Doms, a first-team selection for the second consecutive year, has earned All-Pac-12 honors in all four seasons on The Farm after placing on the third team as a freshman and the second team as a sophomore.
A trio of Cardinal were named to the second team, with freshmen Jasmine Aikey and Lumi Kostmayer earning nods alongside senior defender Kennedy Wesley. For Wesley, the selection is the second of her career after earning third-team honors a year ago.
Landing spots on the third team were junior goalkeeper Ryan Campbell and freshman Allie Montoya.
Making an immediate impact on The Farm, Evans, Aikey, Kostmayer and Montoya were all named to the all-freshman team.
Evans' selection continues a streak of nine straight years of a Stanford player claiming at least one of the Conference's year-end honors. The native of Redwood City, Calif. is the 10th Freshman of the Year selection for Stanford, including the first since Catarina Macario in 2017.
