THREE BLUE JAYS NAMED TO NSCAA/UMBRO ALL-MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL TEAM

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Three Blue Jays have been named to the National Soccer Coaches' Association of America/Umbro All-Mid Atlantic Regional team for the 1999 season. They include sweeper Meredith Uber (Long Valley, NJ/West Morris Central), forward Andrea Thompson (West Lawn, PA/Holy Name) and Toni Stern (New Holland, PA/Garden Spot).

Uber, a senior sweeper and team captain, was also named to the MAC Commonwealth first team for the third time and an all-star for the fourth time last month, and captured her first MVP award. She led a Blue Jay defense which allowed only 16 goals in 23 games and totaled 12 shutouts in 1999. She scored one goal and had one assist. She is a 1996 graduate of West Morris Central High School.

A junior forward, Thompson was named to the All-Region team for the first time following her team-leading goal and point scoring effort in 1999. She scored eleven goals and had six assists for 28 points in her breakout season. She was third in the MAC Commonwealth in both goals and assists in 1999. She is currently ranked fifth on the Elizabethtown career goal scoring list with 28, sixth in career points with 74, and ninth in career assists with 18. She is a 1996 graduate of Holy Name High School.

Stern, a senior midfielder and two-year letterwinner, had five goals and six assists for a total of 16 points. She was the team's fourth leading scorer and notched three game-winning goals en route to her first Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth all-star season and her first NSCAA/Umbro All-Region selection.
She is a 1996 graduate of Garden Spot High School.

The Elizabethtown College women's soccer team finished the 1999 season with a 15-7-1 record. The team tied the program record for longest winning streak with ten, accomplished between September 14 and October 13.

The Blue Jays finished in first place in the Commonwealth with a 7-0 record, and the team was the postseason MAC runner-up.

Etown advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Regional of the NCAA tournament, and fought the nation's number one ranked College of New Jersey to a 0-0 double overtime draw before falling in penalty kicks.
