Soccer star Ozimek to have jersey retired

Former Atlantic 10 Midfielder of the Year and three-time ESPN The Magazine academic all-American soccer star Lindsey Ozimek will become the first women's soccerplayer in Charlotte 49ers history to have her jersey retired.

The ceremony will take place during halftime of the Feb. 14 homecoming men's basketball game between Charlotte and George Washington. This past fall, Ozimek was one of nine finalists for the 2008 NCAA Woman of the Year award.

During her four-year career, Ozimek helped the 49ers win 45 games, two A-10 regular-season titles, one A-10 Tournament title and a bid to the 2007 NCAA Tournament. She also for the United States U-23, U-20, U-17 and U-16 national teams and helped the U-20 national team win the CONCACAF Championship in January 2006. She graduated in 2008 with a 4.0 GPA in Special Education.
