Zimmeck ranks among Tribe leaders
September 20th, 2007 8AM

TAGS:  college women


[PROFILE] The list of William & Mary women's greats is long, beginning with such legends from the early days of women's soccer as Megan McCarthy, Julie Cunningham (the current Princeton coach) and Jillian Ellis (UCLA coach).

More recently, U.S. international Natalie Neaton, who leads all players with 81 career goals, and three-time All-American Missy Wycinsky (75 goals) have had outstanding careers with the Tribe.

Claire Zimmeck should go down as one of William & Mary's greats. Following up on sensational freshman and sophomore seasons, she has been on a tear in the last two weeks.

Zimmeck's hot streak continued when she scored the winning goal in No. 24 William and Mary's 2-0 victory over Albany on Wednesday evening -- the fourth straight game she has scored the winning goal.

Zimmeck's late goal was the difference in W&M's 1-0 victory over mighty North Carolina Sunday in Richmond, Va., the Tribe's first over the Tar Heels in 22 meetings. Two days earlier, she scored twice in a 4-0 win over Navy. And she had the golden goal in William & Mary's win over Maine to start its current four-game winning streak.

Zimmeck, an NSCAA All-American out of Woodson High School in Fairfax., Va., was the 2006 CAA Player of the Year and scored 14 goals for the Tribe, who finished the season with a 17-game unbeaten streak.

As a freshman, she also led the Tribe with 11 goals.
