Two Soccer Angels Recognized

Fox/Haynes Honored

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Two Meredith College soccer Avenging Angels were honored by the USA South as announced Thursday afternoon. Sophomore Lillian Fox and freshman Emily Haynes were recognized.

Fox scored five of Meredith's 19 goals this season for a share of the team's lead and was named to the USA South Women's Soccer East Division second team for her efforts. This award marked the first end-of-season honor for Fox, who started in all 18 matches this season. Fox scored two game winning goals this season in 28 shots and 20 shots on goal for a percentage of .714.

Named to the All-Sportsmanship team, rookie defender Haynes played two matches as a field player during the first half of the season and closed out the season on the field in Wednesday's tournament game. Early in the USA South campaign, Haynes stepped in goal for the Avenging Angels to replace an injured starting keeper. A self-taught goalie, who learned the skill as a way to contribute to her collegiate experience, covered the box for five league matches and an overall record of 3-2. She recorded 37 saves, a 1.40 goals against average, and a .841 save percentage in 450 minutes in goal.

After winning their last five regular season matches, the Avenging Angels earned a third-seed in East Division standings for round one hosting privileges. MCSC finished in a tie with the N.C. Wesleyan, and the Battling Bishops advanced to the quarterfinals on penalty kicks with a score of 5-3.
