Two Bearcats earn United Soccer Coaches All-Southeast Region honors:
Following the program’s first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament, two Lander women’s soccer players have garnered All-Southeast Region honors from the United Soccer Coaches.
Sophomore forward Brianna Taylor was selected to the All-Southeast Region second team, while junior forward Emily Jermstad earned a third-team slot.
Taylor, a second-team All-Peach Belt Conference selection, scored nine goals and registered six assists on the season. The Delran, N.J., native started 16 matches for the Bearcats, ranked second on the team in goals, assists and points, and led the Bearcats with four game-winning goals.
Jermstad was a second-team All-PBC performer who ranked second in the conference in assists and shots. The Irmo, S.C., native started all 17 mathes, led the team with 10 assists, and scored seven goals on the year. The Bearcats were 11-0 in matches when Jermstad recorded either a goal or an assist.
Lander finished the season with a 12-2-3 overall record, finished second in the PBC and made its first trip ever to the NCAA Tournament, earning the No. 3 seed in the Southeast Regional.
