DURHAM, N.C. – After completing a standout freshman campaign with the Duke women’s soccer team, Duke rookie Christina Gibbons earned TopDrawerSoccer.com Freshmen Best XI accolades on Thursday.  

Gibbons, who is a product of Raleigh, N.C., started all 24 contests for the Blue Devils on the defensive end helping Duke (9-9-6) advance to at least the NCAA quarterfinals for the third straight year.  She guided the Blue Devil defense to seven shutouts and played a team-best 2,228 minutes, which was a school-record for a freshman.  

One of the most consistent players on the team in 2013, Gibbons registered assists against Arkansas in the NCAA Tournament, Virginia Tech and Kennesaw State.  Gibbons earned All-ACC Freshman team honors as well as Duke Classic All-Tournament team recognition during the season.
