Shannon Lovejoy and Jennifer Hull: SPU’s First All-Americans in Women’s Soccer

third year of existence, the Seattle Pacific University women’s soccer team had become a national powerhouse, ranked 23rd in the country. Now two players have been named SPU’s first All-America selections in women’s soccer.

Sophomore Shannon Lovejoy, a midfielder from Seattle, was named by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America to the NSCAA second team. Lovejoy established a new school record for goals and led the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) with 17 goals and 38 points.

Junior Jennifer Hull, a goalkeeper from Eugene, Oregon, was the NCAA Division II goalkeeping leader in goals-against average (0.30) and led the GNAC with 12 shutouts. She was named to the NSCAA third team. Earlier, she and Lovejoy were both voted first team all-region and all-GNAC.

“I am so proud of Shannon and Jennifer and our entire program,” says Coach Chuck Sekyra. “Our team accomplished a great deal last season. And the best part is that we have such a great group coming back next season.” The Falcons graduated just one senior.

In 2003, its first season under Sekyra, Seattle Pacific won its second straight conference championship, qualified for the NCAA playoffs and finished 17-2-2.
