Dec. 10, 2012

MILWAUKEE - The Marquette women's soccer team has been recognized with additional postseason honors as four student-athletes have been named to the 2012 NSCAA/Continental Tire Women's NCAA Division I All-Northeast team.

Senior Ally Miller and freshman Amanda Engel were awarded with first team honors, while senior Rachel Brown and junior Maegan Kelly have been named to the second team.

"These selections are again a direct reflect of our team's success this fall," head coach Markus Roeders said. "Ally, Rachel, Maegan and Amanda had great seasons and we are proud of their play and contributions. With them, but more importantly, the daily work of all the players on our team, we reached new heights as a program, finished top ten in the country, reached the NCAA Sweet 16 and won multiple championships. It's been a fantastic year and we thank all those involved, our families, fans and supporters."

Miller adds this to a long list of accolades this season. She was one of just 10 finalists for the 2012 Senior CLASS Award®, which is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I women's soccer and was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year. Miller was also named to the NSCAA All-American second team and was a Capital One All-America first team selection.

Engel had a fantastic freshman season that saw her compile a 14-0-2 record in the net and earn a spot on the All-BIG EAST Rookie team as well as third team all-conference honors. She ranked third in the NCAA with a 0.42 goals against average.

Brown earned a spot on the All-BIG EAST first team this season in which she produced four goals and three assists for the Golden Eagles. Two of her goals were game-winners.



Kelly led MU's offense this season with 29 points on eight goals and 13 assists, which ranked among the top-10 in the NCAA. She had one game-winning goal and was named to the All-BIG EAST first team for her play.

The Golden Eagles had a record-setting season with a team-best 17 shutouts to lead the NCAA. They won a fourth consecutive BIG EAST American Division title and a first-ever BIG EAST Tournament championship title. MU advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third time in program history.
