At the MPSF level, the junior ranked fifth in goals per game (2.03) and her 65 goals were the second most among conference players. Pezzolla also led SDSU in scoring 10 times over the course of the 2012 season. So far in her Aztec career, she has tallied 158 goals, 234 steals and 124 assists.
Campoli entered her final season on The Mesa as the school's all-time leader in saves and added to her total this year. The Lake Forest, Calif., native played in all 33 games this season and tallied 378 saves and 31 steals. The senior led the MPSF in saves per game with 12.00 and her 378 stops were also tops in the league. Campoli has played in 128 total games and has made 1,337 saves in her Aztec career.
The two San Diego State honorees mark the sixth consecutive season in which multiple Aztecs have earned all-conference accolades.
