November 19, 2003
Fifth-ranked DePauw was well-represented on the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference team as nine players earned spots on the three teams and head coach John Carter was named the league's Coach of the Year.
Junior midfielder Meredith Rinaker (Omaha, Neb.) and senior goalkeeper Ali Glibkowski (Glen Ellyn, Ill.)earned spots on the first team. Rinaker, a third team choice last year, is third on the team with seven goals and fourth with 17 points.
Glibkowski's honor is her fourth in as many years. She was a first team choice last year, a third team selection as a sophomore and second team as a freshman. Glibkowski has posted eight shutouts this season and has a 0.67 goals-against average for the Tigers who have blanked 12 opponents. In nine conference games, the Tigers allowed just an own goal against Trinity and Glibkowski posted a 0.12 GAA.
Five Tigers earned second team honors including sophomore forward Crissy Harter (Zionsville, Ind.), senior back Emily Hakeman (Glen Ellyn, Ill.), junior forward Kate Nickols (St. Charles, Ill.), senior forward Corinne Scott (Gurnee, Ill.) and senior midfielder Jocelyn Keller (Cincinnati, Ohio).
Junior back Katie Breen (Orland Park, Ill.) and freshman back Mo Mohan (Naperville, Ill.) were chosen to the third team.
In 14 seasons as head coach, Carter's teams have posted a 170-71-11 record including a 48-4-1 mark in SCAC play. He was the SCAC Coach of the Year in 1999 and the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 1995 and 1996. This year's NCAA appearance is the Tigers' fourth since 1997.
Carter directed the Tigers to a perfect 9-0 SCAC record and into the NCAA Division III Championship. DePauw takes on 12th-ranked Virginia Wesleyan in Virginia Beach, Va., this Saturday in the first quarterfinal appearance for both schools.
