WELLESLEY, Mass. – Clark University sophomore Jamie Joseph (Cazenovia, N.Y.) received her second conference honor of the 2019 season as the midfielder was named to the NEWMAC Women's Soccer Second Team All-Conference as officially announced on Wednesday afternoon.
Joseph, who also earned a spot on the Academic All-Conference Team one week ago, started all but one game for the Cougars this past season. Joseph controlled the pace of action from the midfield position in the most recent campaign, elevating the play of her teammates and leading through her contagious on-field energy.
Joseph's ability to contain the opposing team's top-offensive threat helped the Cougars maintain a 0.87 goals-against average throughout the season which was the fourth-lowest amongst the 11 NEWMAC teams. Offensively, the sophomore tallied a pair of goals while dishing out an assist to help the Cougars to a 9-8-1 overall record.
On October 22, Joseph delivered the game-winning goal with her strike in the 42nd minute, leading the Cougars past Wellesley in a 1-0 final to nab a crucial NEWMAC victory. Earlier in the season on September 1, Joseph logged her first goal of the season to aid a 7-0 offensive eruption against Becker College.
Joseph set new individual single-season highs in games started (17), shots (34) and shots on goal (17) during her 2019 campaign. So far in her young career, the midfielder has tallied five goals and five assists while participating in 34 games with 30 starts.
With the All-Conference selection, Joseph becomes just the second underclassman in the program since 2011 to be named to a NEWMAC All-Conference Team. Additionally, she becomes the 37th All-Conference recipient for Cougars' women's soccer since 1995 and the third during the six-year tenure of head coach Brie Smith.
The NEWMAC Women's Soccer All-Conference Team consists of a first team and second team of 13 individuals that are voted on by the eleven women's soccer coaches from the conference.
