(NEWS RELEASE) -- Junior Charlyn Corral of the Louisville women’s soccer team was selected as the 2012 BIG EAST Conference Midfielder of the Year while three other Cardinals earned All-BIG EAST honors during Thursday night’s awards banquet at the Hartford Downtown Marriott.
 
Corral (Mexico City, Mexico/Tecnologico de Monterrey) was also a First Team All-BIG EAST selection, while junior forward Angelika Uremovich (Oakville, Ont./St. Ignatius of Loyola) earned Second Team All-BIG EAST honors. Senior goalkeeper Chloe Kiefer (Whitefish Bay, Wis./Divine Saviour HS) and junior forward Christine Exeter (Pickering, Ont./Pickering HS) were selected Third Team All-BIG EAST giving the Cardinals their most all-conference honorees since the school record total of five in 2007.
 
Corral’s honor marks the third straight season Louisville has earned at least one of the major BIG EAST Conference awards. Last year, Exeter was named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year and head coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes was selected as BIG EAST Coach of the Year, while in 2010, Exeter was selected as the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year.
 
In her first season in the program, Corral tallied 19 points, including eight goals in BIG EAST play. She had 52 shots in 11 league games, more than any other BIG EAST player. Corral had a point in seven of 11 BIG EAST games and overall, she amassed a team-high 23 points, including eight goals and seven assists. The junior earned BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week honors on Oct. 22. An athletic forward with extensive international experience playing for the Mexican National team, Corral was a member of Team Mexico at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany seeing action in one match.
 
Uremovich led the Cardinals with nine goals on the season to go with two assists. She tallied two goals in a game twice this season with the first coming in the Aug. 24 win over Purdue and the second in the Sept. 9 win over Toledo. In her three seasons as a Cardinal, Uremovich has 18 career goals and eight total assists while playing in 60 matches overall.
 
Kiefer has started every game in each of the last two seasons in goal, 42 straight overall. In 2012, she had eight shutouts to increase her career total to 18, which ranks second on the Cardinals’ all-time list. Overall, she has played more than 4,800 career minutes in goal, which also ranks second on Louisville’s career list.
 
Exeter, a First Team All-BIG EAST choice in 2011, scored one goal and added one assist in 2012 despite being limited in her game action. The international standout missed the first two weeks of the season while playing for the Canadian National Team at the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan. She also missed the final five games of the season due to injury.
 
The Cardinals (10-4-4), who were eliminated from the BIG EAST Championship in the quarterfinal round last Sunday at USF, will await their NCAA Championship fate when the field of 64 is unveiled on Monday at 4:30 p.m., ET on NCAA.com.
