The Concordia women's soccer team may have missed out on the Great Plains Athletic Conference Tournament title, but the Bulldogs pulled in an impressive number of postseason honors.
Bulldogs goalkeeper Lindsey Carley was named the conference's defensive player of the year to lead three first-team selections and Greg Henson was named coach of the year when the conference announced postseason honors Monday.
Carley was jonied by defenseman Chelsea Bright and midfielder Maria Deeter, a Lincoln Lutheran graduate, on the first team. Midfielder Lauren Martin and forward Kaitlyn Radebaugh were second team.
Midland forward PT Perez was named the women's offensive player of the year.
Hastings swept the men's postseason honors, with forward Daniel Whitehall named offensive player of the year for a third straight year, goalkeeper Joe White the defensive player of the year for a second straight year and Aaron Champenoy coach of the year.
Hastings downed Concordia for a second straight year in the tournament final. The Bulldogs had three players on the first team – defenseman Florian Caraballo, forward Marcelo Hernandez and midfielder Micah Lehenbauer – along with another three second-team – goalkeeper Jack Bennett, forward Carlos Ferrer and midfielder Lewis Rathbone.
