A Winning Tradition

  • 1 NAIA Regional Tournament (1998)

NEWBERG, Ore. --- George Fox University's Abby Anderson, Emma Logan and Michala Denn have been named to the 2017 All-Northwest Conference Women's Soccer team, announced by the conference office Wednesday.

The three All-NWC athletes marks the first time since the 2012 season that the Bruins had three or more athletes named to the list.

Anderson and Logan were named second-team All-NWC, while Denn received an All-NWC honorable mention. Anderson and Denn become the first freshman duo to make the team since the 2007 season when the Bruins had freshman's Melissa Leighty and Nicole Akiu earn the honor.

Anderson, a freshman from Arlington, Washington, played in 19 games for the Bruins, while starting in 18 of them. As a midfielder, Anderson was tied for fourth on the team in goals (2), tied for third in assists (1) and fifth on the team in points (5). She was crucial in helping the Bruins on the both sides of the ball and scored one game-winner over Beloit on Sept. 1.

Logan, a senior from Sandpoint, Idaho, earns her second straight All-NWC second-team honor. In 2016, Logan was named second-team as a defender, while this season she earns the honor as a forward. She was second on the team in points (7), tied for second in goals (3) and tied for third in assists (1).

Denn, a freshman from Medford, Oregon, was stellar for the Bruins as a new addition on defense. Denn played in all 19 games for the Bruins, while starting in 18 of them. Her one and only goal of the season came as a game-winner over Willamette on Oct. 8.

Machaela Graddy of Pacific Lutheran was named Offensive Player of the Year, Jamie Lange of Puget Sound was named Defensive Player of the Year, Michayla Sponsel of Linfield was named Freshman of the Year and Seth Spidahl of Pacific Lutheran was named Coach of the Year.
