Fredericksburg, Va. – The St. Mary's College of Maryland women's soccer team earned three spots on the 2017 All-Capital Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Team as announced by Assistant Commissioner Tim Mowrer Thursday morning.
Senior Lane Brooks (Middletown, Del./Bohemia Manor), junior Emily Huey (Pocomoke City, Md./Snow Hill), and first-year Emmey German (Lutherville, Md./Towson) were all named to the second team. Both Brooks and Huey are repeat all-stars as Brooks was also a second-team pick in 2016 and Huey was a first-team selection in 2016 for the Seahawks.
Brooks concludes her collegiate career as a four-time all-star. A transfer from Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina, the 5-8 defender collected a pair of All-Conference Carolinas awards in 2014 (second team) and 2015 (third team) while at Barton before claiming two All-CAC awards here.
She helped the Seahawks put up a stingy defense with a CAC third-best 1.05 team goals against average plus a fifth-best five shutouts. Brooks also contributed upfront with a team-best third-best two goals and fourth-best four points. She started all 37 matches played during her two-year career as a Seahawk, finishing with seven points on three goals and an assist.
Huey continued to be an integral part of St. Mary's offensive plan this season. She played both as a forward and in the midfield for the Seahawks, leading the team with three assists and ranking third with seven points and two goals. In the conference, Huey is tied for 10th in assists. She netted the game-winning goal in the team's 4-1 Hawktoberfest win over Wesley College on Oct. 21.
German came in and kick started her career on the right foot, starting every game for the Seahawks (except Senior Day) and leading the team in scoring with six goals, three game-winning goals, and 13 points. She was tied for fourth in the conference in game-winning goals and tied for ninth in goals.
German scored in her first game and then netted three goals over two wins against Penn State Harrisburg (Sept. 23) and at The Catholic University of America (Sept. 27) before adding a goal at Marymount (Va.) University (Oct. 6) and in the CAC Tournament First Round game against the University of Mary Washington (Oct. 28). She now sets her sights to the hardwood as she transitions to basketball mode.
St. Mary's finished this season with a 6-9-4 (4-3-2 CAC) overall record and as the No. 4 seed in the CAC Tournament. The Seahawks advanced to the semifinals for the third straight season under fourth-year head coach Peter Krech '09.
