Ferreira and Schimmel to Captain Rhode Island College Women’s Soccer
 

Providence, RI—Rhode Island College seniors Kerri Ferreira (Bristol, RI) and Caitlin Schimmel (Cumberland RI) will captain the women’s soccer team for the 2001 season.

Ferreira transferred into RIC last fall from the University of Hartford, where she had spent the previous three years, and had an outstanding season. She was named Second Team All-Little East Conference. She played in 13 games, starting 12 of them. She had ten goals and three assists for 23 points on the year. Ferreira was tied with Jen Danielian for the team lead in goals. She was second on the team in points. Ferreira had one game-winning goal.

She is a physical education major and a 1997 graduate of Mt. Hope High School.

As a junior in 2000, Schimmel saw action as a forward, midfielder and goalkeeper. She played in 17 games, starting all of them. She had seven goals and five assists for 19 points on the season. Schimmel was third on the team in goals, led the club in assists and was third in points. She had two game-winning goals on the year. As a goalkeeper, she played in five games, starting four of them. She logged 322 minutes with 35 saves, a 2.24 GAA, a .814 save percentage and one shutout on the year.

Schimmel played a vital role in the Anchorwomen’s berth into the 2000 LEC Tournament. During the final regular season game against Eastern Connecticut on Oct. 21, Schimmel started in net. With RIC down 1-0 at the half, she tied the game up in the second half and then scored the "golden goal" with just 13 seconds left in the second overtime period to lift RIC past ECSU. For her efforts, she was named the LEC’s Player of the Week.

Schimmel is a psychology major and a 1998 graduate of Cumberland High School.

The Anchorwomen are currently 1-0, having defeated Salve Regina 4-0 on Sept. 1. RIC will play at the Muhlenberg Tournament on Sept. 7-8.
