Athletics - posted on 11/11/2010
Three members of the Lakeland College women's soccer team earned All-Northern Athletics Conference honors as the league announced the 2010 All-NAC Women's Soccer team Thursday.
Ashley Sarbacker, a freshman from Middleton, Wis., and Kristina Borts, a junior from Milwaukee, Wis., garnered Second Team All-NAC accolades at goalkeeper and midfielder, respectively. Marian Santelli, a senior from Pleasant Prairie, Wis., earned All-Sportsmanship Team honors. Sarbacker was also named to the All-Freshman team.
Sarbacker recorded 142 saves and one shutout this fall. She was the backbone of Lakeland's defense and came up with some great saves.
"Ashley's recognition is well deserved," said head coach Tony Pierce. "She came into this year as a strong freshman goalkeeper and kept us in a lot of games. It's a tribute to her hard work this season. I look forward to working with her the next three years."
Borts, a central midfielder, capped a team-high 10 goals and added eight assists. She started in all 18 games and was the team's playmaker.
"Kristina is a solid midfielder," said Pierce. "She and Dana (Schmidt) were a tandem in the midfield and distributed the ball nicely. Kristina is technically very sound and sees the game well. I am proud of her accomplishments this fall and I look forward to a great senior year from her."
Santelli, a central defender and team captain, was an outstanding defender. Her ability to shutdown offensive players and distribute the ball played an integral part on the team. She started and played in all 18 games for Lakeland.
"Maria is the hardest working girl on the team," said Pierce. "From start to finish she was always go-go-go. Her recognition is a reflection on her four years of hard work and dedication to the team."
