ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Navy senior forward Brigitte Fox (La Mesa, Calif.) closed out her soccer career better than a month ago, but she continues to earn accolades for a stellar 2007 campaign. Most recently, Fox recently garnered all-region kudos from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Soccer Buzz.
Fox was named to the NSCAA's All-Mid-Atlantic Region Third Team, while garnering Second-Team All-Mid-Atlantic Region kudos selected by Soccer Buzz. A first-time NSCAA honoree, Fox is the 12th different player in school history to be named to one of the All-Mid-Atlantic Region teams. Meanwhile, it's the fifth consecutive year in which a Midshipman has earned all-region mention.
Additionally, Fox was named to Top Drawer's Women's College Team of the Season. Earning honorable mention status, Fox was named one of the top 100 players in the country with 17 players named to each of the top three teams and an additional 49 to the honorable mention squad.
Fox, who garnered First-Team All-Patriot League recognition for a second consecutive season, was an offensive juggernaut for the Midshipmen this season, scoring 16 of the team's 41 goals, including six of the 14 game-winners. She paced the league with her 35 points on a league-best 16 goals and three assists. Additionally, she led the conference in goals per game (0.70) and was tied for second in points per game (1.52).
On a national scale, she finished 2007 ranked 34th in points per game and 21st in goals per game.
Her 35 points in '07 are the second-most scored by a member of the senior class, just four behind record-holder Meggie Curran (12G-15A), while her 16 goals are the most by a senior in program history. Overall, her goal production was the sixth most in school history for a single season, while tying for third alongside Justine Fisher (1999) in goals.
Fox is one of only seven different players in school history to produce a hat trick (she's accomplished it twice) and on Oct. 30 of 2007, she became only the third different player to score four goals in a game. Her four-goal performance in Navy's 8-1 win over Howard tied the school record, joining Amelia Sheveland (twice) and Cori Thornton on the list.
Despite missing nearly her entire sophomore campaign due to injury, Fox has etched herself into the Navy career record book as its sixth-leading scorer with 78 points on 32 goals and 14 assists. She is just one of six players in the program's 14 year history to finish their career with 75 or more points. Her 32 goals rank sixth on the career list, while her 11 game-winners are the third most.
