Women's Soccer Picked For Fifth in SAC; Conte & DiMarco Named Preseason All-SAC

08_WSOC_DiMarcoMarisa

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba was tabbed fifth in the 2011 South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer preseason poll as announced by the league office on Thursday.  Catawba played sophomore Juliana Conte (Hampton, Ontario, CANADA/Holy Trinity Catholic) and senior Marissa DiMarco (Voorhees, NJ/Eastern HS) on the preseason All-SAC second team.

Conte was the SAC co-Freshman of the Year in 2010 and led the team with seven assists.  She collected three goals, including one game winner.  DiMarco handed out a pair of assists from her defender position.  She helped the team to seven shutouts.

Lenoir-Rhyne, which finished one win shy of the 2010 NCAA Women’s Soccer Final Four, is a nearly unanimous selection by the SAC coaches to win the 2011 league title.  The Bears, 2010 co-regular season champions and Food Lion SAC Tournament winners, received nine of the 10 first-place votes. 

L-R is also heavily represented on the preseason All-SAC team, with six first-team selections, including defending conference Player of the Year and Daktronics All-American Catherine Hauck.  The Bears also have one student-athlete on the second team. 

Wingate comes in at No. 2 in the preseason poll.  The Bulldogs, runners-up in last season’s Food Lion SAC Tournament, also have two first-team and one second-team preseason All-Conference selections.  This includes 2010 first-team All-SAC honorees Izabella Miranda and Kelly Moldenhauer. 

No. 3 in the poll is Tusculum, which features four preseason All-Conference selections.  TC forward Tramicka James is the Pioneers’ lone first-team selection after also being named to the 2010 All-SAC first team. 

Carson-Newman, which tied Lenoir-Rhyne for the 2010 regular season title is fourth in the coaches’ poll and received the other first-place vote.  The Eagles also landed one student-athlete on the preseason All-SAC first team – 2010 first-team selection Trenna Howell – and two on the second team. 

Next in the poll is Catawba at No. 5, Newberry at No. 6 and Lincoln-Memorial at No. 7.  Catawba and Lincoln Memorial each placed two on the preseason All-Conference team, while Newberry has one. 

Rounding out the coaches’ poll is Mars Hill at No. 8, Anderson at No. 9 and Brevard at No. 10.  MHC has two preseason All-SAC selections, and Brevard and Anderson each have one. 

The SAC women’s soccer season officially kicks off on Sept. 1, and the Food Lion SAC Championship is slated for Nov. 1-6, with the semifinals and final taking place in Rock Hill.
