Four members of the Lenoir-Rhyne University Women's Soccer Team earned 2013 NCAA Division II Daktronics All-Southeast Region honors.
Of the four players, sophomore defender Amber Madriaga (Wailuku, Hawai'i) was selected to the all-region first team. Madriaga, a first-team all-conference honoree, finished with two goals and two assists this season and anchored a defense which limited its opponents to just 20 goals in 20 matches.
Madriaga picked up all-region accolades for the second straight season as well.
L-R sophomore forward Garcelle Alequine (Wilmington, Del.), junior midfielder Hanna Kiebel (Parker, Colo.) and sophomore midfielder Emmi Dunn (Reading, Pa.) were all named to the All-Southeast Region Second Team.
Alequine led the team in goals scored (nine) and total points (23) this year while Dunn and Kiebel finished with six and four goals, respectively, on the season. All three players earned 2013 All-South Atlantic Conference honors as well. Kiebel garnered all-region accolades for the second consecutive year.
Lenoir-Rhyne finished the year with a record of 14-4-2 including a 9-1-1 mark in league play and won its fourth straight SAC Regular Season Championship. The Bears also earned their fourth straight trip to the playoffs and hosted one part of the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Tournament.
All first-team members are eligible for the 2013 Daktonics All-America Teams which will be released next month.
Sports information directors from NCAA Division II schools and conferences selected the two Daktronics All-Southeast Region teams. This is the eighth year Daktronics has sponsored the NCAA Division II Women's Soccer All-America and all-region teams.
The teams are sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. The team is voted on by the NCAA Division II Southeast Region member sports information directors who are members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
