Women's Soccer All-Conference Award Winners Announced

ATLANTA, Ga. – The Great South Athletic Conference celebrated the 2015 GSAC Women's Soccer All-Conference award winners at a banquet held in Atlanta on Friday night. Rika Goto of UC-Santa Cruz captured Player of the Year honors while Zoey Perchaluk of Agnes Scott won Freshman of the Year. Salem's Jay Callahan won his fourth consecutive Coach of the Year honor from his peers.

Rika Goto (No. 21 pictured at right), a senior defender from Petaluna, Calif, won GSAC Player of the Year honors after captaining the backline of a defense that held opponents to a 1.95 goals per game average. Goto's relentless defensive efforts helped the Banana Slugs earn the top seed in the 2015 GSAC Women's Soccer Tournament. Despite her defensive position, Goto also managed to tally two goals and an assist in her award winning senior campaign.

Zoey Perchaluk, a freshman forward from Ontario, Canada, enjoyed a breakout season in 2015 on her way to collecting Freshman of the Year status. She ranked inside the top fifteen in several major statistical categories including goals (7th), assists (15th), points (9th) and shots (10th). Perchaluk also showed a flair for the dramatic by notching four game-winning goals for the Scotties on the season.

Jay Callahan piloted Salem to a 13-2 overall record in 2015 and the second seed in the 2015 GSAC Women's Soccer Tournament. In his ninth year as the head coach of the Spirits soccer program, Callahan has led his squad to 6 straight seasons with at least 10 wins, and 7 of the last 8 seasons. This marks Callahan's fourth consecutive GSAC Women's Soccer Coach of the Year honor.
