Women's Soccer Athlete of the Year

By: Jimmy Robertson

Jazmine Reeves | Senior | Dover, Delaware

The Virginia Tech women’s soccer team had its best season in school history, winning a school-record 19 games, scoring a school-record 56 goals and making it to the College Cup – NCAA soccer’s version of the Final Four – for the first time.

And most of that success came about because of the play of the program’s first All-American – Jazmine Reeves.

Reeves, who started 25 of 27 games, tied for the team lead in goals with 11, and she also added five assists. Her 11 goals were the fourth-most goals scored in a single season at Tech, and she finished tied for third on the team with two game-winning goals.

Reeves’ best performances probably came in the ACC tournament. In the quarterfinals, she headed in the game-winning goal to lift Tech to a 2-1 double-overtime win over Notre Dame. In the semifinals, she scored two goals in the Hokies’ stunning 4-2 upset of then-No. 1 Virginia.

Reeves was named to the all-tournament team following that performance. She later was named a first-team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, making her the Hokies’ first All-American in women’s soccer. Reeves also became the first Tech women’s soccer player to be named a semifinalist for the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy, the highest intercollegiate soccer award.

Reeves closed her career by appearing in a school-record 91 matches. She scored the second-most points in Tech history (69), tallied the third-most assists (19) and the fourth-most goals (25).
