TACOMA, Washington – Seven Puget Sound women's soccer student-athletes earned All-Northwest Conference honors, including Jaime Lange's Defensive Player of the Year nod. Puget Sound has placed at least six All-NWC selections in every season since 2004.
Lange, senior defender Emily Prasil, and sophomore midfielder Tayla MacPherson were named to the All-NWC First Team. Junior midfielder Tess Peppis was named to the All-NWC Second Team, while All-NWC Honorable Mentions include junior midfielders Lura Morton and Elizabeth McGraw, and freshman forward Genenieve Cheatham.
Four times this fall Lange was named the NWC Student-Athletes of the Week for defense. She led the conference in saves (99), and ranked second in both save percentage (.900) and goals-against average (0.57).
Prasil's leadership on the back line is a big reason why the Loggers allowed only 13 goals in 20 games. Meanwhile, MacPherson helped control the middle of the field for the Loggers, totaling 16 points on six goals and four assists.
Peppis ranked second in the NWC for assists (six), and Morton tied for the third-most goals in the league (eight). Cheatham finished just one goal shy of Moton's total.
