Nouanesengsy Earns NSCAA/Continental Tire First Team All-Great Lakes Region Honors
Dec. 4, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Senior midfielder Lisa Nouanesengsy (Huber Heights, Ohio) was named to the NSCAA/Continental Tire All-Great Lakes Region First Team on Wednesday, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced. She is just the fourth player in program history to receive first team all-region accolades and the first since 2007.
She joins Kelly Lawrence (2007), Kim Grodek (2003) and Tracy Grose (1998) as the only Hoosiers to earn first team honors.
Accompanying Nouanesengsy on the all-region team was senior Rebecca Candler (Medina, Ohio), who was named to the third team by the NSCAA. It is just the third time in IU history that two players were named to the all-region team in the same season (1995, 2008, 2013).
Nouanesengsy led Indiana with 11 goals this season, tied for third-most in a single season in school history and tied for sixth in the Big Ten this season, on her way to being named Second Team All-Big Ten. Her 25 points on the season were good for the fifth-most in a single-season by an IU player and tied for ninth in the Big Ten this year. She also added to the record she held entering the season by recording her third career game with three goals scored - no other IU player has done it more than once in their career.
Candler led the Hoosiers in assists for the second straight year, finishing with nine in her senior campaign to rank fifth in the Big Ten in that category. After logging 10 assists as a junior to set a new IU single-season record, the nine she posted this season are the second-most in a single-season in IU history. Her 20 career assists rank second all-time at Indiana, trailing Wendy Dillinger's career mark of 24. Candler also added a career-best five goals this season, equaling her career total entering the 2013 season.
