The Eastern Washington women’s soccer team had five players recognized by the Big Sky Conference on Monday.
Leading the Eagles’ contingent was senior forward Whitney Brannan, who was selected to the All-Big Sky second team. This is Brannan’s third postseason recognition. She was honorable mention in 2009 and 2010.
Senior Dashia Huff, juniors Lauren Jacobsen and Jamie Walker and freshman Katie Cashman all received honorable mention. It is Jacobsen’s third straight year on the honorable mention list and Huff’s second.
Brannan was one of the biggest offensive threats in the Big Sky, finishing second overall in shots per game at 3.56.
She finished the season with three goals and four assists for 10 points. Six of those points came in conference play, which ranked fifth in the league.
Portland State junior Megan Martin was named Offensive MVP and Northern Colorado senior Aundreaha Martinez was named Defensive MVP. Northern Colorado’s Kirstin Salminen was named Goalkeeper of the Year.
