Three women's soccer players earn Big Ten season honors

Three Indiana women’s soccer players earned accolades with the Big Ten individual player awards on Tuesday.

Senior midfielder Lisa Nouanesengsy was named to the Second Team All-Big Ten team as voted by conference coaches.

It is the second consecutive year Indiana has had a player named All-Big Ten after forward Orianica Velasquez earned second team honors in 2012.

Nouanesengsy leads IU in goals (10) and points (23) this season in helping lead the Hoosiers to a No. 4 seed in this week’s Big Ten Conference Tournament in Champaign, Ill. For her career, she is sixth on the all-time school record list in goals (23) and points (54).

Joining Nouanesengsy was freshman midfielder Veronica Ellis, who was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team.

Ellis has played in all 11 Big Ten Conference games and has recorded two goals in those games. Both of her goals proved game winners, including an overtime goal against Michigan State on Oct. 20.

Also earning recognition was junior midfielder Rebecca Dreher who was named Indiana’s representative with the Sportsmanship award.
