Junior midfielder Molly Bruh was named to the Jewish Sports Review 2011 Women’s Soccer All-America First Team, just one of 10 Division I student-athletes selected by the bi-monthly periodical.

After tallying her first career goal and complementing it with two assists for a career-high four points in GW’s 5-1 victory over Robert Morris Sept. 4, Bruh continued on to net a career-high six points during the 2011 season. The junior paced GW in assists over the season, adding four throughout 2011 play.

Her third came against Davidson Sept. 9, and Bruh recorded her fourth against Liberty Sept. 23, both setting up goals for senior Sierra Smidinger.

Bruh finished third on the team in points, and was one of just three Colonials to start all 19 games of the 2011 season.
