Two members of the Lincoln Christian University (LCU) Red Lions women’s soccer team received recognition by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics’ (NAIA) Association of Independent Institutions (AII) for their excellent play on the field this season.
The AII is a conference comprised of 28 NAIA teams from across the country that are not affiliated with a regional conference.
“This a great honor for the two of them, and a great honor for the team to have two payers on the all-conference list after only two seasons in the NAIA,” LCU Women’s Soccer Head Coach Todd Spellman said. “They both come from great high school programs and have a good history with club play. It’s no surprise that they would contribute the way they have, and get the recognition they deserve.”
Crockett broke LCU’s single season scoring record with an astounding 44 goals. She scored five goals or more five times, including an eight goal outburst and two seven goal matches as well. She also added 12 assists for good measure. Johnson, too, had an excellent season with 15 goals and five assists. Her 15 goals also broke the previous single season record.
“They are great examples of our team values of diligence, perseverance, and love,” Spellman said. “When team awards are announced later this month, I won’t be surprised if their teammates vote for them to receive other honors as well. The best part is, they are both first year players with a lot of time to continue to grow and contribute. I am very excited for the future of the LCU women’s soccer program.”
The Red Lions women’s soccer team finished the season with six wins and eight losses on the year, tying the LCU record for most wins in this program’s history.
