Dec. 27, 2010
These two Husky co-captains were among the 12 student-athletes from Division I honored on the Second-Team and were named to the All Far-West Region team last week.
“This is another great honor for Kate and Kendyl,” said head coach Lesle Gallimore. “To be honored nationally for their academic and athletic performances is a testament to their dedication to both endeavors. I am proud to coach them and they epitomize the excellence that is UW.”
Deines (Issaquah, Wash.) carries a 3.66 GPA in pre-social science. She was a Second-Team Pac-10 All-Academic selection this season and earned Honorable Mention her sophomore year. Athletically, Deines was named First-Team All-Pacific Region and First-Team All-Pac-10. She led the team in goals on the year and ranks seventh in school history in game winning goals, eighth in total goals and 10th in points.
Pele, a Kennewick, Wash., native, leaves UW as one of the best defenders in school history. She carried a 3.46 GPA in political science and earned Honorable Mention Pac-10 All-Academic honors for the third-straight year. Athletically, Pele was named to the Third-Team All-Pacific Region. She also earned Third-Team NSCAA Scholar All-West Region honors last year. All-time in UW history, she ranks second in games started and tied for fifth in games played.
Deines and Pele join Tina Frimpong (2004) as the only other NSCAA Scholar All-Americans in school history.
