KANSAS CITY, Kan. – UMBC women's soccer red-shirt junior Jessy Brown (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage) added another award to her 2013 campaign by being the first Retriever women's soccer player to be named to a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Region Team. The midfielder was one of 33 players to be named to one of the three Northeast Region teams, earning a spot on the NSCAA/Continental Tire All-Region Third Team.
Brown returned from a season-ending injury in 2012 to have a breakout campaign in what proved to be a Cinderella year for the Retrievers. The Plantation, Fla., native became the first UMBC women's soccer player to earn a major award in the America East by being named the league's Midfielder of the Year, in addition to earning All-Conference First Team honors and being an All-Academic selection.
Brown, who entered the season without having scored a goal in her career, ranked second on the team and fourth in the conference with seven goals on the year. Her conference-best six game-winning goals were highlighted by the go-ahead goal in the 59th minute of the America East title game against No. 2 Stony Brook, which earned her America East Championship Most Outstanding Player recognition. Brown finished the season with 17 points, which tied for first on the team and third in the league.
Brown was honored by being named the America East Player of the Week three times this season, including back-to-back selections on Sept. 16 and Sept. 23, becoming the first Retriever to do so since UMBC joined the league in 2003. The red-shirt junior was also recognized as the TopDrawerSoccer.com Player of the Week in the final week of the regular season.
The Retrievers made one of the biggest turnarounds in the nation, going from 1-11-5 overall and last in the conference in 2012 to posting a program-record 13 victories, capturing a share of its first-ever regular season title, earning its first-ever conference tournament crown and making its first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament.
