MILWAUKEE – The American Collegiate Athletic Association announced this year's recipients of the 2019 All-Conference Teams for women's soccer and the yearly conference awards. The Mount Mary University Blue Angels sent three Blue Angels to this year's conference squads while also pulling in Goalkeeper of the Year.
All season long, Hannah Rose (Sr./Jeromesville, Ohio) has led her Blue Angels in saves. The senior goalkeeper has led her team's defense for four seasons, and in her final season she was recognized not only on the All-ACAA first team, but Rose grabbed the ACAA Goalkeeper of the Year as well. Rose earned a spot on the All-ACAA first team by being on task all year long, as a result she set a number of records for the Blue Angels. The senior goalkeeper pulled in 282 saves to lead the ACAA and finish second in NCAA Division III women's soccer in total saves. She not only set the single-season record for saves in a season with her work this year, but she also set MMU's new career record for total saves at 702; the only Blue Angel to ever collect 700 saves.
Along with Rose on the All-ACAA first team is Nyasia Hardy (Fr./Fort Worth, Ind.). Hardy led MMU's offense this season with three goals, two assists and eight points overall. Making most of her shots count, Hardy also led her team with one game-winning goal.
On the defensive end, the Blue Angels have been anchored by not only their goal-play, but by their veteran defender Halee Van de Boom (Jr./Saukville, Wis.) who made this year's All-ACAA Second Team. While Van de Boom might not collect the same stats as the midfielders and forwards, the junior was able to hit one goal on the season to go along with her defensive play.
