DURHAM, N.C. – Soccer America released its 2013 preseason All-America teams on Thursday with Duke seniors Natasha Anasi and Laura Weinberg each named to the squad.  

Anasi was one of four defenders selected to the preseason team, while Weinberg was one of 10 forwards receiving honors.

The senior product of Arlington, Texas, Anasi started all 23 games for the Blue Devils at the center back position in 2012. A two-time NSCAA All-America, three-time MAC Hermann Award candidate and the 2011 ACC Defensive Player of the Year, Anasi registered two assists last season and guided the Blue Devils to six shutouts on the year. She has helped lead Duke to 32 shutouts over the last three seasons.

A native of Boca Raton, Fla., Weinberg is coming off a breakout junior campaign collecting 16 goals, 12 assists and a school-record 44 points last season.  Her 16 goals were tied for a team high and was a career high, while ranking tied for second on Duke’s single-season chart.  Weinberg, a Soccer America MVP in 2012, also notched five game-winning goals and registered eight of her 16 goals against ACC opponents.  Over her career, Weinberg has scored 34 goals and posted 86 points to rank tied for fourth and fifth, respectively, on Duke’s career lists.  

Duke will open the regular season on the road at 12th-ranked Texas A&M on Friday, Aug. 23.  The Blue Devils will close the weekend at South Carolina on Sunday, Aug. 25.  The first home contest will be in the Duke Nike Classic Sept. 6 and 8, which includes three top-10 ranked teams -- North Carolina, UCLA and Duke.
