ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba took the fourth spot in the 2019 South Atlantic Conference Women’s Soccer Preseason Coaches Poll. In addition, the Catawba Indians put four players on the preseason All-SAC teams.

First team preseason honors went to junior midfield Jovana Sanchez and sophomore defender Katie Webb. Sanchez delivered team highs with six goals and seven assists a year ago. Three of those goals were game-winning tallies. Webb helped the defense post eight shutouts, while adding three goals and six assists.

Sophomore defender Katie Beck and senior goalkeeper Shelby Thompson were second team picks. Beck scored one goal, which was a game winner, and helped produce the eight shutouts. Thompson started all 19 matches and went the full distance in seven of those shutout matches. She posted a 1.13 goals against average with 76 saves.

Lincoln Memorial was selected as the favorite for the conference title, grabbing seven first-place votes. Carson-Newman collected three top votes and was second, while Lenoir-Rhyne stood third with one first-place vote.

The 2019 SAC Women’s Soccer season is set to begin tonight with non-conference matchups. Catawba will open on Saturday at Lynn University.
