Saenz Named Second Team All-Region

By Alex Sommers published November 16, 2010

UCCS junior, Julia Saenz was named Daktronics second-team All-Central Region on Wednesday. Saenz led the Women's Soccer team in points with 24 that came off of 7 goals and a team high 10 assists. Those numbers rank her second in the RMAC for assists, third in points, and tied for eighth in goals.

Julissa Rodriguez from New Mexico Highlands was named the player of the year. Others to join her with first team honors are: Jordan Miller from Regis, Fort Lewis' Hayley Hollenga, Ashlee Ellefsen from Bemidji State, Megan Woodworth from Colorado Mines, Metro State's Madison McQuilliams, Anna Evans from Colorado Mines, Erika Shisler from Fort Lewis, Minnesota-Duluth's Maria Leider, Nicole Renko from Metro State, Jessica Stark from Colorado Mines, Reegan Lloyd from Minnesota-Duluth, and Anna Belpedio of Winona State.

Six of the first-teamers are seniors which leaves plenty of room for Mountain Lions to move into the ranks. UCCS will have ten returning seniors next year including Saenz and team goal leader, Kristin Preble who will be hungry for a great season and great success.
