Elizabethtown College Women's Soccer Players Dana Moyer and Courtney Phillips Named to All-Region Teams
ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Two Elizabethtown College women's soccer players have been named to the National Soccer Coaches' Association (NSCAA) All-Mid-Atlantic Region teams for NCAA Division III. Sophomore sweeper Dana Moyer (Harleysville, PA/North Penn) has been named to the all-region Second Team, while senior midfielder Courtney Phillips (Mechanicsburg, PA/Mechanicsburg) has earned a spot on the Third Team.
Moyer took over as Elizabethtown's starting sweeper in 2004 after spending her first-year campaign in 2003 as a starting defender. While this is the first time in her career that she has received regional recognition, she has already been twice named an All-Commonwealth Conference player, earning first team honors in 2004 and landing a spot on the second team as a first-year student in 2003. In 2004, she started all 19 of Elizabethtown's games and scored three goals with one assist for seven points from the backfield. She has tallied eight points in her two-year collegiate career.
This year marks Phillips' second appearance on the All-Mid-Atlantic Region teams, as she was named to the region's second team in 2002 as well. She is also a four-time All-Commonwealth Conference player, having earned conference first team honors in 2002 and 2004 and second team honors in 2001 and 2003. Phillips was also recently named to the Middle Atlantic Conferences' All-Academic team for the fall 2004 season as well. In 2004, she totaled three goals and four assists for 10 points. Over the course of her career, she totaled 18 goals and 22 assists for 58 points.
The Elizabethtown College women's soccer team was a Commonwealth Conference playoff semifinalist in 2004 and finished the season with a 9-8-2 overall record.
