As in past seasons, College Soccer 360 presents its "Dynamic Duos" feature, showcasing Division I women's teams that have multiple double-digit goalscorers. 

Penn State and Dayton so far are the only teams that have boasted three players with double-digit goals (listed below), while Boston College, Hofstra & Pepperdine each are close to that triple distinction and still playing. In 2011, Dayton was the only DI women's soccer team with three double-digit goalscorers, while Penn State had two players with 10-plus goals in 2011. 

Penn State's Christine Nairn (13; right) combines with teammates
Maya Hayes (12) and Mallory Weber (11) to make PSU one of two
DI women's soccer teams with three double-digit goalscorers in 2012.

Duke had two double-digit goalscorers in 2011 (Kelly Cobb & Kaitlin Kerr) and has two different players who have eclipsed the 10-goal mark in 2012 (Laura Weinberg & Kim DeCesare). Two other teams – Virginia and Texas A&M – are on the verge of joining Duke, Penn State & Dayton in having multiple double-digit goalscorers for the second straight season. 

As of Nov. 5, there now are 13 teams (out of 300-plus) that have featured multiple double-digit goalscorers, with most earning that distinction over the past couple weeks. Nine of those teams will be competing in the 2012 NCAAs 

There also are 15 teams (likewise listed below) that are close to joining the Dynamic Duos list (within 1-2 goals).

This page will be expanded soon to include info. and links on the players, along with headshots, action photos, etc.
