WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Corina Gabbert and Amy Hasson, two standouts on the Whitman College women's soccer team, have been voted to the All-Northwest Conference First Team.

                   Corina Gabbert

Three more Missionaries received All-NWC women's soccer honors. Courtney Porter and Kristin Innes were voted to the All-NWC Second Team while Liz Forbes received Honorable Mention recognition.

Gabbert, a forward-midfielder and senior captain, led Whitman in scoring this season with 19 goals (plus six assists) and made the NWC First Team for a third straight season. She was a second-team selection in her first year at Whitman.

Gabbert, a graduate of Portland's Catlin Gabel School, booted three hat tricks during the conference season this fall.

She was named NWC Player of the Week (offense) in four of the season's final six weeks. 

After recovering from an early season injury, Gabbert did most of her scoring during the NWC schedule. In conference games only, she led the NWC in scoring with 18 goals and four assists in just 14 games.

Her 19 goals and six assists stand as Whitman's most prolific single-season scoring campaign in more than two decades. She finished her four seasons with 45 goals and 12 assists, giving her 102 points overall.

Earlier this fall, Gabbert was also named to the Academic All-District First Team and is eligible for Academic All-American honors.

                                Amy Hasson

Hasson, a sophomore midfielder, had two goals this fall while handing out eight assists. Only one player in the conference had more assists.

Hasson, a graduate of the International Community School in Kirkland, Wash., started all 19 games this season and tended to dominate opponents with a direct, physical style of play.

Hasson also started for Whitman last season, when she was second on the team (behind Gabbert) in scoring with five goals and three assists.

Porter, a 6-foot senior goalkeeper, had seven shutouts this season, which ranked her second in the conference. She was third in saves.

    Courtney Porter

Porter, a graduate of Inglemoor High School in Redmond, Wash., was named NWC Player of the Week (defense) in late October after posting back-to-back shutous against Pacific and George Fox. That capped a stretch in which she blanked four of the five teams Whitman played.  

        Kristin Innes

As a four-year starter, Porter finished with 25 career shutouts.

Porter had eight shutouts in both her junior and sophomore seasons. She was named to the All-NWC First Team as a junior and to the Second Team as a sophomore. 

Innes, a junior forward, was Whitman's second-leading scorer this season with four goals and five assists.

A graduate of Kentridge High School in Kent, Wash., Innes moved into a prominent starting role this fall after playing her first collegiate soccer season a year ago.

         Liz Forbes

Innes played on the varsity basketball team in her first year at Whitman.

Forbes, a senior and three-year mainstay in the midfield, had her most productive scoring season this fall with four goals and two assists.

A graduate of Burlington (Vt.) High School, Forbes started all 38 games for Whitman over the past two seasons.

Forbes has also competed on the Nordic ski team at Whitman.
