Jermier, Proffitt and Powell Named NSCAA All-Region
Dec. 3, 2015
KANSAS CITY – Jacie Jermier, Morgan Proffitt and Darian Powell of the Marquette University women’s soccer team were awarded NSCAA All-Northeast Region honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, it was announced on Thursday, Dec. 3. Jermier was named first team all-region, while Proffitt and Powell each earned a spot on the second team.
“All three are very deserving and played a huge role in our success this year,” 20th-year Marquette head coach Markus Roeders said. “Our entire team is excited that they were selected among the best players in our region and we extend our congratulations to them.”
Both Jermier and Proffitt played key roles this season for the Golden Eagles in their defensive unit and in the midfield, while the pair also chipped in offensively. Jermier tied for second on MU with 10 points coming off a pair of goals and a team-high six assists. She was a Senior CLASS Award candidate this season and an All-BIG EAST First Team selection.
Proffitt was also an All-BIG EAST First Team choice and joined Jermier as a second team all-conference selection in 2014. The Columbus, Indiana native scored three goals this season and earned BIG EAST weekly recognition on three occasions, including a pair of defensive player of the week honors.
“Jacie was instrumental with our defensive group but also played a huge role in our attack and always posed a threat going forward,” Roeders said. “Morgan took her play to another level and her motor always goes 90-plus minutes. She does the job on defense and offense and is the glue between our lines.”
Powell was Marquette’s leading scorer with 15 points on seven goals and one assist and tallied four goals over the final three matches of the regular season. The La Porte City, Iowa native also led the Golden Eagles with seven goals last season in her first campaign on the pitch, and was the only Golden Eagle to average over a point-per-match in conference action.
“Darian came on really strong at the end and her scoring output speaks for itself,” Roeders said. “She has the nose for the goal and with a little good fortune could have had four or five more goals this year.”
The Golden Eagles concluded the 2015 campaign with an overall record of 8-8-4.
