HARTFORD, CONN. -
Providence College women's soccer players Jenna Roncarati (Cumberland, R.I.) and Catherine Zimmerman (Madison, N.J.) were honored by the BIG EAST Conference on Thursday, November 1 at the league's annual championship banquet in Hartford, Conn.
Roncarati, a senior defender, was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team. Roncarati has found her place in the history books at Providence, as the only Friar defender to earn post-season recognition from the league. She was a two-time All-BIG EAST Third-Team selection in 2010 and 2011, and an All-Rookie Team honoree in 2009. Roncarati is the only Friar in program history to earn All-BIG EAST honors multiple times as a member of the First, Second or Third Team.
Zimmerman, a striker, was named to the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team on Thursday night. She is the first Friar to earn All-Rookie honors since Roncarati in 2009. Zimmerman played just two BIG EAST Conference regular-season games this season and 10 games overall because of injury. She led the Friars in scoring with 15 points on seven goals and one assist. Three of her seven goals were game winners. In her first career BIG EAST game, she netted two goals in a 2-0 victory over St. John's
