(SNO) — Saint Lucia’s Lyla Lionel has been selected to the NJCAA Region XIX Women’s Soccer All-Region 1st Team for the second time in as many years.
Lionel, who lead the attack for Essex College, was one of four Lady Wolverines to be selected. The sophomore has recorded nine goals and two assists this season.
Three other Saint Lucians, two freshmen and a sophomore, are also women’s soccer student-athletes at Essex – Samara Edward, Chresilda Cox, and Shaunasha Prevot.
The 8-0-1 Lady Wolverines, led by veteran coach and alumna Monique Edouard, will face Harcum College, of Bryn Mawr, Pa., at 1 p.m. Saturday, October 20 at Newark’s Weequahic Park in a semi-final matchup. The women will be seeking to defend their Region 19 crown won last year.
The Region winners advance in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I soccer championships.
