Four Scots named to the United Soccer Coaches All-South Atlantic squad

Four Maryville College women's soccer players have been named to the 2017 United Soccer Coaches Association All-South Atlantic Region team following a 14-3-2 fall campaign.

 

Sophomore forward Shannon Reagan, a first-team All-USA South performer from Tullahoma, Tennessee, was named to the coaching association's second-team. Reagan, a transfer from Robert Morris University, tallied a team-high 16 goals directing four game-winning scores.

 

A trio of Scots earned United Soccer Coaches Association third-team honors. Junior defender Miranda Lukas, a native of Cape Coral, Florida, earned first-team All-USA South honors after anchoring a defense that posted 10 shutouts on the season. Sophomore midfielder Hannah Clothier, from Knoxville's Christian Academy, added to the Scots' dynamic offense that averaged 3.47 goals a game with seven goals and five assists. Her efforts also earned her first-team All-USA South accolades. Freshman standout Bailey Sipos, a forward from Knoxville's Hardin Valley, earned All-USA South honors while also being named the league's Rookie of the Year following a 15 goal, three assist inaugural collegiate season.

 

Maryville earned the USA South Western Division crown along with Piedmont College following a 6-0-1 regular season slate. The Scots fell to Meredith College 2-1 in overtime in the USA South semifinals in the fall league tournament.

 

"This is the most all-region selections in one season in our women's program history," stated Maryville College Head Soccer Coach Pepe Fernandez. "Having four selections is great, but what excites us most is that each standout returns next fall which raises our expectations. This honor is a credit to their consistency throughout the season. Our defense, anchored by Lukas, was exceptional the entire season. Our back four defenders were really connected and we ask a lot of our outside backs to defend and attack the entire field non-stop and they do it each and every game. Offensively, we have a dynamic group of attackers and finishers that makes the future bright for our program."
