Five players from the Alabama State women’s soccer team were honored by TopDrawerSoccer.com in their annual midseason awards in each conference for NCAA Division I women’s soccer.
The website ranks who they consider the top 20 best players in each conference based upon their first half performance during the 2014 season.
Among the Lady Hornets named in the list included Aaliyah Lewis, Shelbi Vienna-Hallam, Alexandria Cannon, Kaedi Walther and Kayla Edwards.
“It shows as a team that we are accomplishing a lot,” said ASU coach Jodie Smith. “It’s always nice to see your players recognized—especially when you consider that we had five players chosen for this. But, we couldn’t do this without an all-around team effort.”
Lewis ranks first in the SWAC with 41 points on 15 goals and 11 assists. Vienna-Hallam moved up to second in the conference with 21 points on six goals and nine assists. Edwards is seventh in the SWAC with 18 points on six goals and two assists. Cannon has been one widely regarded as one of the most consistent, hard-nosed defenders in the conference. Cannon has one goal and one assist and has played on defense throughout the season. Walther has done a nice job connecting passes and winning 50/50 balls. She has one goal and two assists playing from the midfielder position.
