Character

Farquharson is an incredible teammate who has an unrivaled passion for the game of soccer. She works as hard in practice and the weight room as she does on game days. She is a proud representative of her school and is constantly striving for greatness in everything she does. Like any great player, Farquharson always strives to make those around her better.

Community

Farquharson is very active in the community. In 2014, she was one of 10 Arizona State University student-athletes who accompanied ASU American Indian students to Hopi and Navajo lands to bring the university to tribal nations, learn about native cultures and share in healthy activities. In addition to participating in a service project that consisted of clearing rocks to allow space for a new water line, students who joined the tour learned about traditional Hopi perspectives on running, participated in a Sun Devils 5k Run and 3k Walk and learned about Navajo contemporary and traditional culture. Farquharson has also participated in a number of other service projects, including Fantasy Flight, an event that takes place during the holidays in several United Airlines cities to help make a Christmas wish come true for children. More of her community service activities include volunteering at ASU’s annual Pat’s Run; visiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital to play games and do crafts with the patients to help bring some joy into their lives; helping out at Special Olympics; and assisting with serving food to the homeless.

Competition

Farquharson has been ASU’s most dangerous scoring threat since her freshman season in 2012. As of Oct. 26, 2015, Farquharson is tied for 15th among active NCAA Division I players with 40 goals and is tied for 16th in points (94). She is No. 2 on the school’s all-time list in career goals (40), points (94) and is tied for second in career game-winning goals (13). This season Farquharson leads the team in goals (6 – second in the Pac-12) and points (16 – fourth in the Pac-12) despite missing 4.5 games due to injury and is second in the Pac-12 in both goals per game (0.55) and points per game (1.45). Last season she joined Sun Devil Hall of Famer Stacey Tullock as the only other Sun Devil to score double-digits in goals three straight seasons. In 2014, Farquharson recorded a career-high of 14 goals, and had 10 goals for each of her first two seasons. Last year, Farquharson earned first-team NSCAA All-Regional and first-team All-Pac-12 recognition. She concluded her junior season as ASU’s leader in goals (14) and points (32) for the third consecutive season. She also finished tied for first in the Pac-12 in goals per game (0.67) and third in points per game (1.52). Farquharson, who has a pair of career hat tricks to her credit, also owns the school record for most consecutive games scoring a goal (eight – last three games in 2012 and first five games of 2013). In addition to her impressive statistics, Farquharson has also participated in USWNT U23 Training Camp.
