SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Vixen Soccer midfielder Ava Simond (Wilder, Vt. / Hartford) earned Old Dominion Athletic Conference Honor Roll recognition for the week of September 4, 2012. In Sweet Briar's lone game last week, Simond came up big on the goal line. Against Bryn Mwar College, Simond swept two would-be goals off the line. The effort preserved the Vixen second half shutout in the 2-0 loss to the Owls.
In the 56th minute of play, Simond knocked away an Owl attempt off a corner kick. Simond was equal to the task again nearly 13 minutes later off a similar play. Simond is no stranger to the line, prior to suiting up for the Vixens, she played in the goalkeeper position.
