Women's Soccer Hands Out Awards at Postseason Banquet
The Oglethorpe women's soccer team put the finishing touches on their 2011-12 season by spending the evening with family and friends at the team's postseason awards banquet held at the Buckhead eatery Maggiano's.
After tabulating the team voting, Head Coach Alan Woods announced the team's award winners from the past season. Sophomore Lexie Craig was named the Offensive MVP while Jordan Weaver, who announced she will return for another season and accept the captain's armband, was named Defensive MVP. Graduating senior Kristen Koch picked up the Stormy Petrel Award for her dedicated service to the program.

In addition to the team award winners, the squad also placed six student-athletes on the SCAC Honor Roll: Elia Breijo, Kendall Burke, Lexie Craig, Elvira Hernandez, Eliza Newland and Kim Overmier. Newland was selected as the athletic department's Female Academic Athlete of the Year after her outstanding year in both the classroom and on the pitch.
