Stump Picks Up NSCAA Women’s Soccer All-Region Accolades
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Sophomore defender Elizabeth Stump became the second player in program history to earn All-Region accolades when the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) announced its women's soccer All-South Atlantic region teams on Wednesday.
Stump earned a spot on the all-region third team and is Bridgewater's first All-Region honoree since Meghan Groos' third-team nod following the 2009 season.
Last month, Stump was named to the all-conference first team as one of the top four defenders in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC).
Stump was an anchor in the back row for the Eagles and was also named to the ODAC All-Tournament team after Bridgewater earned the program's first berth to the conference championship tilt. The Roanoke, Va. native dished out one assist on the year with her lone helper coming in Bridgewater's 5-0 victory over Randolph.
With her selection to the first team, Stump was just the second player in program history to be recognized on the all-conference first team and the first for the program in a decade. Goalkeeper Julianne Blevins earned a first-team honor following the 2002 season.
Stump and the Eagles finished the season with a 12-7-2 overall record and earned the program's first victory in postseason play with their 2-1 victory over Virginia Wesleyan in the conference semifinals.
