University of Southern Indiana Women's Soccer had a program-record seven Screaming Eagles named All-Great Lakes Valley Conference in a release today as it prepares for its conference title defense this weekend.
The record-breaking All-GLVC class was highlighted by sophomore forward Morgan Beyer, senior forward Maggie Winter, senior midfielder Taylor McCormick, and senior defender Madelyne Juenger being named to the first-team. Sophomore midfielder Jill DiTusa was named to the second-team, while the All-GLVC honors were rounded out by junior midfielder Katlyn Andres and sophomore forward Maya Etienne being awarded third-team honors.
Beyer, who earned her first All-GLVC honor, led the Eagles in scoring this spring with 16 points on a team-high seven goals and two assists. The seven goals included two game-winners and she tied a USI single-match record with three goals in the victory over Missouri University of Science & Technology.
Winter picked up her second All-GLVC honor after earning a second-team honor in 2018. The senior forward follows Beyer in the scoring column with 15 points on four goals, including a team-high three game-winners, and tied for a team-high with seven assists.
McCormick is selected for her first All-GLVC award after posting nine points on one goal and tied for the team-lead with seven assists. She also received the James R. Spalding Sportsmanship nomination from USI.
Juenger becomes the second Eagle in the history of the program to be named All-GLVC four times, including three first-team honors. The four-time All-GLVC performer led the USI defense to a team 0.53 goals against average (GAA), allowing eight goals in 15 matches, and had five points on one goal, the game-winner versus Quincy University, and three assists.
The All-GLVC second team featured DiTusa, who earned her first conference honor. She was fourth on the team in scoring with 11 points on five goals, including the game-winning tally versus Maryville University, and one assist.
Andres and Etienne are named the third team after the COVID-19, conference-only spring schedule. Andres earned All-GLVC honors for the second-straight season after posting 13 points on three goals and tied for the team lead with seven assists.
Etienne receives her first All-GLVC award after leading the Eagles to an 11-3-1 and a 0.53 GAA. She also has nine shutouts this year, two shy of tying the single-season record she set in 2019.
