TACOMA, Washington – Three Puget Sound women's soccer student-athletes earned All-West Region honors, United Soccer Coaches announced this week. Senior defender Emily Prasil and sophomore midfielder Tayla MacPherson were both named to the Second Team, while sophomore goalie Jamie Lange was named to the Third Team.
The trio was named to the All-Northwest Conference First Team shortly after the season ended, and Lange was named the Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
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.
Puget Sound finished the 2017 with a 13-4-3 record. The program has recorded at least 13 wins for 18 consecutive seasons.
