Four Trinity women’s players have been named in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-West Region team, announced on Tuesday. Yasmeen Farra, Julia Kelly and Julia Camp were all named in the first team while Colleen Markey was named to the second team.
Farra was the golden boot for Trinity in her senior season as she scored 14 goals through the season, half of them classified as game winners. On top of that she had seven assists and earned Conferense Offensive Player of the Season honors.
Camp was closely behind Farra, scoring 12 goals but had more assists, with eight in another strong season. Camp had a strong season and will return for Trinity next season for her senior season looking to continue winning accolades.
Kelly wrapped up the Tigers who were named in the all-region first team after scoring eight goals and providing three assists. One of those goals opened the season and was the goal of the season for Trinity while she also contributed to a strong Trinity defense, as a holding midfielder, the Tigers only allowed eight goals all season.
For Markey, she has received second team all-region honors for the second season in a row after a strong season on the wing for the Tigers. Markey managed seven goals and seven assists in her junior season building to hopefully push in to the first team in her senior season.
While Trinity’s season ended in disappointment in the NCAA Quarter-Finals that was an improvement on a second round exit in 2015. 2017 will be head coach Dylan Harrison’s second season and with more of his recruits the side will be able to kick on again and remain in contention for a national championship next year.
