CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Four Patriot League women’s soccer student-athletes garnered All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), it was announced Monday.
Colgate and Navy each garnered a pair on the squad, with both Mid selections appearing on the first team.
Navy goalkeeper Elizabeth Hoerner, the Patriot League Goalkeeper and Scholar-Athlete of the Year, was named to the first team, along with Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year Jade Seabrook.
Colgate forward Jillian Kinter was honored with selection to the second team, while Raider midfielder Caroline Brawner was named to the third team.
Seabrook garnered first-team All-Patriot League honors at the end of the regular season and helped lead Navy to the No. 1 seed in the League tournament. The Mids defeated Lehigh in the semifinals before falling 1-0 to second-seeded Colgate in the championship match. A sophomore, Seabrook finished the season with two goals and four assists for eight points in 20 matches, with one game-winning goal. She earned NSCAA/Continental Tire Third-Team All-America honors last week.
In the few times the opposing offense got the better of the Navy defense, Hoerner was there. The junior earned first-team All-League laurels and finished the year with a 17-2-1 mark with four shutouts. She ended the year leading the League in goals-against average (1.06), while sitting third in save percentage (.808) and tied for seventh in saves per game (4.20).
Kinter, a senior, nabbed her second consecutive Offensive Player of the Year award and finished 2012 with a League-best 37 points. She scored in the Raiders’ League semifinal victory over third-seeded American, and helped lead them to the League title and subsequent NCAA Tournament berth. Kinter led the League with 14 goals and tied for first with nine assists. Her point total was two shy of entering the League’s single-season top 10. Kinter became a four-time All-League honoree, with her last three accolades on the first team.
Brawner, a sophomore, was a breakout in 2011 as a rookie and had a strong second-year campaign. She was named to the All-League team for the second year in a row, garnering first-team laurels in helping Colgate clinch the tournament’s No. 2 seed. She played in all 21 matches and finished third on the team in scoring with 19 points (7g, 5a).
