Former Hofstra University women’s soccer standout Sue Weber has been elected to the Hofstra Pride Athletics Hall of Fame.
The 2019 class will be inducted at the 2019 Hofstra Pride Athletics Hall of Fame and Golf Outing, which will take place Monday, June 17 at the Huntington Crescent Club.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2019,” director of athletics Rick Cole Jr. said “The five individuals and one team embody Hofstra Pride and further enhance an already-impressive Hall of Fame membership. We look forward to a great night celebrating their outstanding accomplishments in June.”
A member of the Pride women’s soccer team from 2005-07, Weber helped the Pride to Colonial Athletic Association championships and NCAA Division I Tournament berths in 2005 and 2007. She became the first player in program history to earn All-America honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in 2005 and earned the honor once again in 2007.
The Islip, N.Y. native was named the CAA defensive player of the year in each of her three seasons at Hofstra and was the CAA Championship Most Outstanding Player in 2005 and 2007. She helped the Pride to a then school-record 18 wins as a senior that included the Pride’s first NCAA Tournament victory.
Hofstra also set a school record for shutouts in 2007 with 12, including a program-best seven consecutive clean sheets.
Weber also excelled in the classroom, as she was a 2007 CoSIDA Academic All-American and a two-time Academic All-District selection.
Her No. 20 jersey was retired in 2008.
