Molly Lester (TH-07 Gold) - Captain of Duke in the Finals of Women's College Cup 2011

KENNESAW, Ga. — Molly Lester’s story could easily be about what might have been.

It’s just that once you’re done chronicling what is for the fifth-year senior, there doesn’t seem to be much time left for the maybes and mights.

In addition to some posters that aren’t as profound as they seemed freshman year and some overdue library books, at least if she’s anything like most college students, Lester will leave Duke with more than memories in tow. She’ll take away an undergraduate degree in history, magna cum laude, with minors in English and French. She’ll exit with a master’s in management, part of a one-year program from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business that is the subject of buzz in the business world the same way the Blue Devils are in the soccer world.

On the soccer field, she will leave with at least six goals to her credit. Even if she doesn’t add to the total Sunday against Stanford, she may well leave with a national championship, the first in the history of the Duke program. (read full article)


 

Winner of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company's

"Most Responsible Coaches" for Tennessee - Ashley Halter, Tophat Gold '97

 

Former Tophatter, Ashley Halter '97 Gold, is currently working in Nashville, TN, and coaching U-16 girls at the Brentwood Soccer Club. The parents of her team nominated her for Liberty Mutual Insurance Company's "Most Responsible Coaches" honor. There are nominees in each state and Ashley was one of the finalist for the state of Tennessee and was recently informed that she was the winner for her state.  Ashley is one of only two women winners. Her team, The Brentwood Beat, won a $500 award because of her selection.

 

Ashley graduated from The Lovett School and went on to start for four years at Florida State University and her team went to the NCAA Sweet 16 her senior year. She attended graduate school at University of Tennessee where she was team manager while she worked on her Master's Degree. She was hired by the University of Pennsylvania where she completed graduate courses and was assistant coach. Ashley says that Tophat was very instrumental in preparing her for her college play and for coaching.
