NORTHFIELD, Minn. -- Three members of the Carleton College women’s soccer team received recognition today as the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference handed out its all-conference awards. Senior defender Layne Teska (Wilmette, Ill/ New Trier) and junior midfielder Bailey Ulbricht (Severna Park, Md./ Severna) were named to the All-MIAC First Team while sophomore goalkeeper Mikayla Coulombe (Crystal, Minn./Benilde-St. Margaret’s) was tabbed All-MIAC Honorable Mention.
For the second consecutive season, Teska was voted to the All-MIAC squad by the conference coaches. She started in each of the team’s 18 contests this year and played a team-leading 1589 minutes. The defender made her presence felt on offense by netting the game-winning goal against Wartburg and assisting on the deciding tally in the victory over Saint Mary’s.
Ulbricht paced the Knights with 13 points season. She led the squad and ranked eighth in the conference with five assists. She tied for the team lead with four goals, all of them proving clutch as each either tied the game or gave Carleton the lead. One of five Knights to start every game this season, Ulbricht also assisted on a pair of game-winning scores, including a 2-1 victory over No. 24 Concordia College.
For the second consecutive year, Coulombe’s name is among those receiving honorable mention. Starting every game in net for the Knights this year, Coulombe tallied a career-high 87 saves on her way to recording eight wins and four shutouts. She registered double-digit stops in four games this season.
As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the MIAC announced the eighth-annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for women's soccer. Courtney Jones (Jr./Westerville, Ohio/Westerville Central) was selected by her coaches and teammates for demonstrating ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition.
