Four L-R Players Named All-Southeast PDF Print

Four members of the Lenoir-Rhyne University Women's Soccer Team were named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division II All-Southeast

Region Teams. NSCAA is the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.


Of the four, sophomore forward Garcelle Alequine (Wilmington, Del.) and sophomore defender Amber Madriaga (Wailuku, Hawai'i) were selected to the all-region first team for the Bears.


Alequine finished the season as the team leader in goals scored (nine) and total points (23) while Madriaga tallied a pair of goals and two assists and anchored a defense which limited its opponents to just 20 goals in 20 matches. Both players are eligible for All-America honors.


L-R sophomore forward Leah Mullins (Kissimmee, Fla.) garnered second-team all-region accolades after leading the squad in assists (six) and was second in goals scored (seven) and total points (20) while junior midfielder Hanna Kiebel (Parker, Colo.) was a third-team All-Southeast Region honoree. Kiebel finished with four goals and two assists.


All four players were All-South Atlantic Conference selections in 2013 while Madriaga, Alequine and Kiebel picked up D-II All-Southeast Region accolades last week by Daktronics.


Lenoir-Rhyne finished the year with a 14-4-2 record including a 9-1-1 mark in SAC play en route to its fourth consecutive league regular season championship. In addition, the Bears earned a postseason berth for the fourth straight year and hosted the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Tournament in November.
