Freshman (2010):

Gorodetsky became the first NCAA Division III freshman in four years to be named an all-American, and the first defender since 2002, earning a spot on the NSCAA/Performance Subaru all-America Second Team.  She also became the 11th all-American in Emory history, the fifth defender, and the second freshman.  Earlier in the year, she also garnered all-South Atlantic Region and all-University Athletic Association (UAA) first team honors.  Gorodetsky was the center defender for an Emory backfield that recorded a 0.557 goals-against average in 2010, the 23rd-lowest mark among NCAA Division III teams.  The Eagles recorded 10 shutouts during the season, while limiting opponents to just 4.1 shots on goal per game, including 11 games of three shots on goal or less.  Included in that group of contests were Emory’s first two games of the NCAA Tournament, where Gorodetsky and the Eagles backline held Maryville College and Lynchburg College scoreless on four shots, just two on goal, on back-to-back days.  Gorodetsky started all 21 games she played in during the season, while setting a school record with 1,914 minutes player during the year.  She also contributed on the offensive end of the field, scoring a pair of goals and assisting on three others.  One of her goals came during her first collegiate game, helping the Eagles defeat Lee University, the eventual NAIA champions, 2-1 in overtime.  Gorodetsky’s other goal was during the regular season against Maryville College (Tenn.), an NCAA Tournament team, helping Emory to a 3-1 victory.  Two of her assisst came in back-to-back games against UAA opponents Case Western Reserve University and Carnegie Mellon University, both Emory victories.  She was twice named the UAA’s Defensive Player of the Week during the 2010 campaign, once on October 25th, and again on November 15th.
