Ruedt Headlines Women’s Soccer’s All-Ivy Honorees

PRINCETON, NJ – Defender sophomore Courtney Ruedt was named to the First Team All-Ivy League to highlight a quartet of Lions deserving All-Ivy honors. The Ivy League office announced its honors and awards for women’s soccer after the 2022 season on Wednesday afternoon.

Joining Ruedt as Columbia’s All-Ivy representative was second-team selection Ania PreussakAward Maia Tabion and Academic All-Ivy winner Jordan Beverina. This is the first time since 2019 that the Lions have had at least one player to earn the four separate awards.

Ruedt joined Columbia after reaching the Final Four of the NCAA Women’s College Cup with Rutgers last season. It had an immediate impact on Columbia’s defenses. The Wayne, New Jersey native played in all 15 games, started 14 and saw the field 1,242 of a possible 1,350 minutes. While she didn’t amass many stats as a defender, Ruedt helped the Lions to four shutouts.

Prussak’s role increased from her 2021 rookie season through her 2022 All-Ivy runner-up campaign. The Glen Ridge, New Jersey native scored three goals and assisted four more to share Columbia’s 10-point team lead. Her first college goal helped Columbia defeat Loyola Maryland 3-2, while her first Ivy League goal helped the Lions defeat Penn 2-1. Prussak saw the field for 1,033 minutes and ranked in the top three on the list with shots (22) and shots on goal (13).

Tabioin’s first-year Honorable Mention campaign yielded three goals and two assists. She scored in three of the team’s first five games, led the Lions to a 3-1-1 start and also collected her first Ivy League assist in a 1-0 win over Cornell. In addition to her rookie season, the Sammarish, Washington native was twice named Ivy League Rookie of the Week and was also named to TopDrawerSoccer.com’s Freshman Top 100 list. Like Ruedt and Prussak, Tabion was on the field for over 1,000 minutes.

Jordan Beverina received Lions’ Academic All-Ivy League selection. Each program within the league gets a representative. The senior has a 3.91 GPA as a business major from Columbia College. She played in 13 of the team’s 15 games that year and earned two starts on defense.
