Former Women's Soccer Stand-out Kim Witteman '95 Inducted Into Northeast-10 Conference Hall of Fame

Former Quinnipiac women's soccer stand-out Kim Witteman (Doheny) '95 has been announced as an inductee in the Northeast-10 Conference Hall of Fame 2011 class. The honor is the latest in the career of an individual many consider to be the greatest women's soccer player in program history. The all-time leading scorer, Witteman was inducted into the Quinnipiac Hall of Fame in 2009 and was also named to the Quinnipiac Women's Soccer 20th Anniversary Team. Witteman will be honored at one of Quinnipiac's home games this season.

Witteman, now Doheny, was a four-time All-Northeast-10 Conference First Team selection at Quinnipiac and finished her career ranked second in career points (136) and goals (58), while ranking third in assists (20). As a freshman in 1992, she was selected as the NE-10 Rookie of the Year and gained All-America Honorable Mention. As a senior Witteman was named the 1995 Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Year while earning All-Conference and All-New England First Team honors. She was also given the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association Ed Tremble Excellence Award and stands as the Northeast-10 Conference all-time leader in goals and points. Witteman was named the program's all-time Most Valuable Player during the 20th anniversary celebration of Quinnipiac women's soccer in 2007.

Witteman was one of nine student-athletes honored by the NE-10 that included: Dana LeVangie '91 (baseball) from American International College, Ben Nassar '99 (football) from Bentley University, Jon Sjogren '88 (baseball) from Bryant University, Justin Blood '01 (baseball) from Franklin Pierce University, Raffaella Paparo '96 (softball) from Merrimack College, Andy Wasik '01 (lacrosse) from Pace University, Kim Witteman '95 (women's soccer) from Quinnipiac University, Kateema Riettie '03 (track and field) from Southern Connecticut State University, and Nancy Smith '83 (basketball, soccer, and softball) from Stonehill College.
