Women’s Soccer Earns Four NAIA All-Americans
After the most accomplished season in Grace’s women’s soccer history, the Lady Lancers were awarded with four honorees on the NAIA All-American list.
Carianne Sobey was named Third Team NAIA All-American — the highest individual award a Lady Lancer has received from the NAIA.
Mallory Rondeau, Meredith Hollar and Abby Schue earned honorable mention status for NAIA All-American. Grace’s four honorees were tied for fifth-most in the NAIA.
The Lady Lancers finished the season with a 15-3-3 record, landing at No. 11 in the NAIA Coaches’ Postseason Top 25 Poll. It marked the 17th straight poll that Grace has been ranked and 17th ranking overall in team history.
Grace advanced to the NAIA National Championships for the first time in school history under coach Michael Voss, hosting and winning an Opening Round matchup with Park.
Grace also earned its highest NAIA ranking (No. 8) during the 2015 season and defeated its highest-rank opponent in team history (vs. No. 2 Northwestern Ohio, Sept. 19).
Sobey graduated as the program’s all-time leader in assists. The midfielder finished her career with 42 assists and 80 points (sixth all-time).
Rondeau graduated as one of the most prolific offensive threats in team history. She led Grace in 2015 in both goals (9) and assists (4). Rondeau finished her career ranked fourth in goals (49), third in assists (28) and second in points (126).
Hollar tied for the team lead with nine goals this fall. She had six game-winning goals in 2015 to rank No. 17 in the NAIA. She has amassed 28 goals through her first three seasons.
