Five Lady Evangels Named to the NCCAA All-Central Regional Squad
Congratulations to five Lady Evangels Soccer players who made the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) All-Central Regional squad on November 26th.
Junior forward Chelsea Swisher and sophomore defender Rachel Lynn were first-team selections, with senior midfielder Michelle Medina and sophomore forward Ciara Mitchell earning second-team honors. Junior forward Kaci Power was an honorable-mention performer.
Swisher put together a record-breaking year for the Lady Evangels, setting school single-season marks in points (52), goals (19) and assists (14). She also blasted a team-leading four game-winning scores. Lynn was a key component for a defensive unit that posted five shutouts on the season.
Medina anchored the midfield this year and also dished out two assists. Mitchell made an immediate impact in her first season with the program, tying for second on the team with 13 goals and five helpers.
After an injury cost her the entire 2012 season, Power returned with a vengeance, finishing tied for second on the team with 13 goals along with one assist. She also scored a team season-high four goals in a 5-0 win over Ozarks (Mo.) back on Sept. 20.
The Lady Evangels advanced to the semifinals of the NCCAA Central Regional Tournament before falling 4-3 to Oklahoma Wesleyan University (Nov. 22).
