Ehrhorn finishes with a flourish
AUDREY Ehrhorn finished her college career at George Washington by starting all 36 matches her last two seasons for the Colonials of the Atlantic 10 Conference.
Six weeks after her last match and 3 1/2 years since she enrolled at the Washington, D.C., university, Ehrhorn graduated with a double major in political and environmental science.
The Iolani graduate also has been named to the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll every year.
"Audrey had a tremendous career at GW," Colonials coach Tanya Vogel said. "She started and played almost every minute this season as a defensive center midfielder. Most of the time, she was involved with defending the strongest player on the field and was quite successful at it.
"Audrey was a strong addition to our team and was well respected for her hard work and discipline throughout her career. She will be missed."
"It (marking the opponent's top scorer) was always a challenge and looked forward to it," Ehrhorn said. "It means so much to defend the top scorer and not let them score. I love it."
The highlight of her senior season came when she had to defend Mariko Strickland, a former Honolulu Bulls teammate.
"We went to California and played San Diego State," Ehrhorn said. "I knew Mariko was on their team, but I thought she would be playing in the middle. I didn't expect her to be a striker.
"I marked her the whole game and didn't let her score. We ended up winning 1-0 in overtime. That's what made it so great."
Ehrhorn gave up playing her senior year for Iolani to travel with the Bulls to mainland tournaments during the prep season and showcase her talents for college coaches. She has no regrets about that decision.
She had a partial athletic scholarship her first three years at GW and a full ride this year. She also received academic financial aid.
Erhhorn has passed the LSAT and plans to enter law school this fall.
"I'll go where I get accepted but my top three choices are Duke, California (Berkeley) and Harvard," Ehrhorn said.
She has not decided yet which specific area of law to study, but has narrowed her options to constitutional, civil, international, environmental or intellectual property law.
