More on Mowery… Ashley has appeared in seven games, and been a valuable member to the Virginia goalkeeping corps. Most recently, she appeared in a 7-0 victory over Liberty on Sept. 26, getting credit for half a shutout. Ashley is planning to attend the University of Hawaii, and will pursue her PhD in observational astronomy. After being a star on the field, Mowery likes to look stars in her spare time. “I’ve enoyed working at McCormick Road Observatory. Most universities don’t have a ten-inch telescope, much less a 26-inch telescope. Being able to explain some of what I have learned to the public is very gratifying.” Among her finer moments in Charlottesville include a 1999 win over then defending National Champion Florida and a win at Portland on their home field last season. “Playing soccer at the highest level, and with the best people/players. I will miss my teammates and the bonds we’ve made.”

Lindsey’s Last Laugh Team accomplishments come first for the senior from Indianapolis, as she lists an overtime-victory over Florida two years ago as her favorite memory as a UVa soccer player, followed by being named ACC Player of the Year.

Darci’s Diary Virginia fans have not heard the last of Darci Borski. While it’s been frustrating watching from the bench her senior year, it is quite possible that the Philadelphia native could return to play next season, if she accepts a redshirt this season. “I would like to stay a fifth year and go to grad school, then play another year here. After that, I’m not sure what my plans are,” Borski said. The very first time she heard her name announced at Klockner Stadium, followed by a roar from the crowd, was what Darci Borski will remember most about playing soccer at UVa. Another fond memory was a cross she sent to Katie Tracy, which Tracy sent into the net on a diving header. “Everyone piled on us in celebration.” Of course, there was a hearbreaking loss to Hartford two years ago in overtime, that Borski says is the toughest loss she’s had to take at any level. “I’ll miss my friends and teammates most. They are like my sisters and my best friends. I’ll never forget when we went splunking our second year with April (Heinrichs). I thought it was the most horrible and scariest thing I ever took part in,” Borski said.

Her comeback is inspirational to her teammates, and her courage has set a model for younger players and future players of this program. The Seattle, Wash., native is the daughter of Kay and Bob Westinghouse. Tammys prime accomplishment of the season includes a three-assist performance in a 7-0 win over Liberty, a single-game high for the season. Ladies and gentlemen, a senior midfielder from Seattle, Wash, number 18, Tammy Westinghouse.

It was the first really big win since I had been here. Losing to Georgia still frustrates me, as we lost in a shootout, and I know we were the better team.” Among prime accomplishments Tammy will include, as far as being a student and an athlete at UVa, she has enjoyed the “expereince of a lifetime” as a regular student, while a trip to Disney World during the ACC Tournament a couple years ago was also exciting. “Without a doubt, I’ll miss my teammates, and the time I get to see them every day.” A career in sports marketing awaits Tammy, as she’s already off to a fast start, volunteering some time as a student assistant for Cavalier Sports Marketing.
