White Named to All-Region Team
Olympia, WA - The Evergreen State College women's soccer team received another post-season award today as junior forward Alisha White was named to the NAIA Region I All-Region Team.
White had already been named to the Cascade Collegiate Conference All-Conference Team and received Newcomer of the Year honors as well. She was also one of two Geoducks nominated for Conference Player of the Year honors.
White led the Geoducks in scoring with 15 goals on the season. Fourteen of those goals came against conference opponents to lead all conference scorers in goals against conference foes.
With five multiple goal outings this season including hat-trick wins against Cascade College and Albertson College, White led the Geoducks to their best-ever conference season. Evergreen posted an 8-2-1 record against conference opponents earning third place in the league.
Evergreen finished the 2004 regular season with an 8-8-2 record. All of the losses the Geoducks suffered were to teams ranked in the top five in region one, or to NCAA Division II programs, including a 2-1 loss to perennial power Simon Fraser University who finished the season ranked fourth in the country, and a 0-0 tie with sixth-ranked Concordia University, who lost in the finals of the National Tournament.
The junior forward will return for her senior season in 2005, as will all eleven starters and 18 of 19 players, to lead the Geoducks in their quest for their first national tournament berth.
