Washington junior Tina Frimpong received All-America accolades from three publications that recently released their NCAA women's soccer awards.

The Soccer Post magazine selected Frimpong as one of three forwards on its second-team All-America squad. She received third-team All-America recognition from Soccer Buzz and Soccer Times.

Frimpong was named the Pac-10 co-player of the year in November after leading the league with 13 goals. She shared the award with UCLA defender Nandi Pryce.

A product of Hudson's Bay High School in Vancouver, Wash., Frimpong led the Huskies to an 11-7-3 record and their third postseason berth in the last four years. Washington lost 2-1 to Nebraska in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The 13 goals scored by Frimpong represent the second-highest season total in school history. Washington assistant coach Tami Bennett established the school record with 16 goals in 2000.

Frimpong is tied for second in UW history with 27 goals. The school record of 34 is held by Bennett, who played from 1997 to 2000.


• USC will seek its fifth straight Pac-8 ice-hockey title in the conference tournament Feb. 20 and 21 in Mountlake Terrace. USC (15-0) will play Washington State or UCLA in the first round on Feb. 20. Washington (15-9) plays California in the other first-round game at Olympic View Arena.

• The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will appear at a Tacoma Rainiers game at Cheney Stadium on July 10. The women will perform before the game and between innings, and they will be available for autographs.
