Jamie Kissel '00
Induction Class of 2010
A native of Pearl River, N.Y., Jamie Kissel played soccer at Binghamton from 1996-99. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology in 2000.
A gifted forward with speed and scoring ability, Kissel is the program's all-time scoring and points leader after compiling 63 career goals and 31 assists in 78 games. During her four-year career, BU averaged more than 13 wins a season and advanced to the post-season all four years.
Kissel burst onto the scene as a freshman, turning in one of the greatest seasons in program history. In the team's final year of Division III, the Kissel-led Colonials went 17-2, reached the NCAA tournament and were ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation. She feasted on opponents with 19 goals in 19 games and was a first team all-conference and second team all-region selection. Kissel set a program record with at least one goal in nine consecutive games and her team won 16 straight to reach the NCAA round of 16.
As a sophomore, she pumped in 15 goals with 10 assists to carry Binghamton to a New York State crown and ECAC berth. She earned first team all-state and all-region honors, earning entry on the national All-America ballot.
In 1998, Kissel and BU elevated to Division II competition yet her production remained strong with 10 goals and eight assists in 18 games. She led the team to a 14-3-1 mark, conference runnerup status and a first-ever ECAC Division II championship. Honors included first-team all-conference and second team all-region.
In her senior season, Kissel steered a nationally-ranked BU team to a 13-6-1 record with NECC and ECAC runnerup finishes. She broke the school scoring record with 19 goals, including five game-winners, and earned all-region accolades for the fourth straight year. A scholar-athlete, Kissel was also voted to the national Academic All-America team.
She was a two-time ECAC Merit Medal recipient and also received the school's Foundation Award in 2000.
