SAN DIEGO, Calif. - All-American senior striker Stephanie Ochs of the University of San Diego women's soccer team was drafted No. 3 overall in the Women's Professional Soccer League by the Boston Breakers.

"I am really excited! This was unexpected to get drafted this high," stated Ochs. "I was really shocked, and at the same time I am just really excited for the opportunity."

"There is no steps that Stephanie cannot achieve, and everyone at the University of San Diego is proud of her continued accomplishments," stated USD head coach Ada Greenwood. "She is so driven and has helped our program reach new heights, because of her dedication to her team, and the game she loves. I know that being selected No. 3 in the draft is a surprise to her, but that is what makes her so special. She is never content and that's why she carries the Torero flag so high."

Ochs, who became the first San Diego player to be recognized as the WCC Player of the Year award this season, helped the Toreros reel off seven straight conference wins to earn a share of the 2011 WCC championship for the first time in school history. Ochs tied for the conference lead with 13 points during WCC play, while leading the West Coast Conference with nine assists in eight conference matches. For the season, Ochs scored eight goals and registered 14 assists in helping lead USD to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament with wins over UC Irvine and No. 2 UCLA. The 5-foot, 9-inch forward scored 25 career goals and had 31 assists for the Toreros during her four-year career, and was a two-time NSCAA All-America selection.

"I think Stephanie Ochs' best soccer is still ahead of her. A lot of people are excited about her and her potential," Breakers Head Coach Lisa Cole said. "She has great athleticism. She is somebody who has taken her team and made them better, and that's important."
