Rutgers women’s Soccer Has Six Named All Big-Ten Conference
After another standout season that saw Rutgers women’s soccer go 13-3-2 this year, six players were recognized by the Big Ten Conference for the 2022 Big Ten Women’s Soccer All-Conference Awards.
Per Rutgers Athletics: “Sophomore Emily Mason earns her first All-Conference nod with a spot on the First Team for defenders. Junior Sara Brocious is Second Team for midfielders. Juniors Sam Kroeger and Allison Lowrey, along with sophomore Riley Tiernan, have been named Third Team All-Big Ten for forwards, and junior Emma Misal earns a spot on the Third Team for defenders.”
“We are very happy. Anytime we get recognized we are thankful. To have six players apart of Big Ten honors says alot about what we do,” Head Coach Mike O’Neil said.
Rutgers is getting set to face Northwestern in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Rutgers is the seventh seed in the tournament this year; Northwestern is ranked number 2. Both squads met back on September 29 in a game that ended in a 1-1 tie.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to play on Sunday,” O’Neil said about facing Northwestern. “Northwestern is a very good team. You learn a lot from those games. We learned a lot about that match-up because it was a really good game. We learned a lot about oursleves, and we are better since we played them. But so are they. We expect another really good game.”
