Double-Doubles Update (players w/ 10-plus goals and assists; courtesy CS360)

Notre Dame recently became the first team in Division I women's soccer to have two players each with double-digit goals and assists, with junior forward Melissa Henderson (Garland, Texas) joining senior M/F Rose Augustin (Silver Lake, Ohio; 11G-10A) on that exclusive list. Henderson (17G-10A) – now one of 11 players in the nation with 10-plus goals and 10-plus assist – registered her 10th assist of the season in the closing minutes of the 2-0 quarterfinal win at Oklahoma State, setting up Elizabeth Tucker's second goal of the game to help secure the victory.

Later that night (Nov. 26), Stanford junior midfielder Teresa Noyola (Palo Alto, Calif.) became the 11th member of this list when she scored in the 5-0 rout of Florida State (10G-12A).  (note – research courtesy of CollegeSoccer360.com.).

Two top forwards who will be competing this week at the NCAA College Cup's final weekend – Stanford senior Christen Press (26G-8A) and Boston College sophomore Victoria DiMartino (14G-8A) are two assists shy of earning the "Double-Double" distinction. BC sophomore M/F Kristen Mewis (Hanson, Mass.) already has reached double-digits in both categories (10G-14A). Ohio State – which will join ND, Stanford and BC at the final-week showdown – does not have a player within realistic range of the double-double list (soph. F Tiffany Cameron is closest, with 7G-5A).

Two sophomores – Nebraska forward Morgan Marlborough (Lee's Summit, Mo.) and Dayton midfielder Colleen Williams (Titusville, New Jersey) – are the only players in Division I women's soccer currently with 12-plus goals and 12-plus assists, as each totaled 18G-12A during the 2010 season.


Two players on the Double Double list saw their teams eliminated in the round-of-16: North Carolina junior forward Courtney Jones (11G-14A; Danville, Calif.) and UC Irvine senior forward Tanya Taylor (11G-12A; Buena Park, Calif.). Two more members of this exclusive group played for teams that qualified for the 2010 NCAAs but lost in the second round: South Carolina junior F/M Kayla Grimsley (12G-10A; Lakeland, Fla.) and Central Florida sophomore forward Tishia Jewell (10G-12A; Satellite Beach, Fla.). Marlborough and Canisius junior midfielder Kelly Reinwald (11G-12A; Stafford, Va.) played for teams that narrowly missed spots in the 2010 NCAA field.


The 11 players currently on the Double-Double list are fairly evenly-divided between forwards and midfielders (several split times at both positions). The 11 include two seniors, five juniors and four sophomores, plus three players who are California natives and two more from Florida hometowns (one each who hail from Missouri, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Texas and Virginia).

It's highly unlikely that the 2010 season with produce any players with 20-plus goals and 20-plus assists – a feat completed only 11 times in the 29-year history of Division I women's soccer (see list at bottom of release), by four players from Notre Dame, three from North Carolina and one each from Santa Clara, Connecticut, UC Santa Barbara and UNC Greensboro.
