CHESTER­TOWN — Ari­anna Sa­batino has added an­other post-sea­son honor to her ex­ten­sive all-star ré­sumé, earn­ing a spot on the United Soc­cer Coaches Divi­sion III Scholar All-South Re­gion’s elite first team.

A bi­ol­ogy ma­jor, she has a cu­mu­la­tive grade point av­er­age of 3.95 on a 4.0 scale.

Sa­batino also landed on the Mid-At­lantic Re­gion third team of the United Soc­cer Coaches Divi­sion III All-Re­gion teams, the first Washington women’s soc­cer player to earn all-re­gion recog­ni­tion.

She is one of the most dec­o­rated soc­cer play­ers in the Cen­ten­nial Con­fer­ence this fall — as the con­fer­ence’s Scholar Ath­lete of the Year for women’s soc­cer, a three­time Aca­demic All-Cen­ten­nial qual­i­fier and a sec­ondteam all-star in vot­ing by the con­fer­ence’s head coaches.

Sa­batino, who re­peats on the sec­ond team, is the first Washington women’s soc­cer player to earn All-Cen­ten­nial recog­ni­tion three times.

Washington (8-6-1) fin­ished above .500 for the first time in the 21-year his­tory of the pro­gram.

Sa­batino (7-3-17) led the Shore ladies in goals and was sec­ond in points.

She fin­ishes her Washington ca­reer tied with her twin sis­ter Olivia for the pro­gram record in goals (20) and sec­ond in points (48). Olivia Sa­batino holds the school record of 57 ca­reer points.
