Kansas City, Kans. – Sophomore Tori Eskay (Damascus, Md./Urbana) was rewarded for her stupendous sophomore campaign with selection to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Performance Subaru NCAA Division III All-South Atlantic Region Second Team.
Eskay becomes the fifth Seahawk to earn all-region honors in program history, following in the footsteps of Stephanie Karpinski '97 (1995, 1996); Kathy Holmes '02 (1998, 1999); Lauren Carrier '09 (2008); and Sophia Esparza '10 (2008).
Along with her selection to the NSCAA All-South Atlantic Region Second team, Eskay picked up first team All-Capital Athletic Conference honors on November 12.
During her breakout sophomore season, the 5-8 forward just about doubled her scoring output from last season as Eskay tallied team-highs of 13 goals, three assists and 29 points in 2010, following a six-goal, three-assist effort as a rookie.
She finished third in the league in goals and fourth in points while tying for eighth in assists. Eskay scored seven goals in back-to-back league wins at Wesley College (3g, 1a) and against Hood College (4g) for her first two career hat tricks.
Eskay was a two-time CAC Offensive Player of the Week on October 4 and November 1 while earning her first career nod as St. Mary's Athlete of the Month for month of October.
Eskay was one of five conference players to make the all-region team as Frostburg State University's Heather Fleishell and Amanda Wharton along with Stevenson University's Taylor Zimmerman and Allison Humphries were all named to the third team.
St. Mary's finished third in the conference standings with a 6-8-3 (5-2-1 CAC) overall record. After eliminating the 2009 CAC champion, University of Mary Washington, in the first round, the Seahawks suffered a 2-1 setback at Frostburg State in the semifinals.
