The Lincoln Christian University (LCU) Red Lions women’s soccer team ended its season on Saturday, October 31 with an on-the-road loss to Saint Louis College of Pharmacy. The women finished two games shy of .500 this fall, but it was a season full of accomplishment nonetheless.
The squad’s six wins against eight losses ties the LCU record for wins in a season by any team in the women’s soccer program history. The 2015 squad was led by stars Abigail Crockett (freshman, Normal IL) and Rachel Johnson (freshman, Normal IL), each of whom broke the single season record for goals in a season.
Crockett scored an impressive 44 goals while notching 12 assists on her way to receiving all-conference second team honors. Johnson scored 15 goals and had five assists and received honorable mention recognition.
The Red Lions won back-to-back matches twice, held three opponents scoreless, and two more to just one goal.
“I’m grateful that the program is getting back to form after a disappointing season last year,” LCU Women’s Soccer Head Coach Todd Spellman said. “I’m very proud of the girls for all the effort they put in. We did very well this season, even when fighting injuries to several key players.”
LCU finished the season ranked first in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in total goals scored and goals per game. LCU competes as a member of the NAIA and the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Division I.
