Women's Soccer Picked Third in SAC Pre-Season Poll
ROCK HILL, SC -- Carson-Newman College, which has won the South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer championship for three out of the past four years, is the favorite to win the 2007 SAC championship in a vote of the league coaches, which was announced by the conference office. Catawba was picked to finish third.
Catawba returns six starters from last season’s squad that posted a 12-4-4 record and just missed a NCAA II regional playoff berth. Four ladies have been named to the pre-season all-conference team, headed by senior goalkeeper, Kathleen Blake, a first team selection.
Blake was second in the SAC last season with a 0.85 goals against average and posted seven shutouts. Second team honors went to junior defender Alyssa Schoenberg, junior midfielder Lainey Nichols and sophomore forward Tasha Wilhelm.
Catawba will open its season at home on September 1 at 5 p.m. against Barton. The Lady Indians will host Mount Olive on September 4, before its road trip to Columbus, GA, to participate in the Columbus State Invitational on September 7 & 9.
