Emmanuel College Sports Information Department

FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga.---Four Emmanuel College women's soccer players have earned National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) regional honors for the 2014 season.

Liene Vaciete and Ellie Chapman have been named to the South All-Region team while Kelly Hall and Alyssa Hearn have been named to the South Region All-Tournament team.

Vaciete was the leading scorer for the Lions in 2014 and scored a huge goal on Senior Night 2014 as the Lions defeated Palm Beach Atlantic in overtime. She was named the NCCAA national player of the week for November 10.

Chapman was the anchor of the EC defensive line all season starting all 19 games for the Lions. She also chipped in two goals this season including the first-ever goal in the NCAA era at USC-Aiken in September.

Hall was a steady performer in the EC midfield during the 2014 regional tournament winning 50/50 balls and drawing free kicks in dangerous places with her aggressive dribbling.

Hearn was strong in the EC defense during the tournament clearing several dangerous chances and stepping into strong tackles to shut down the opponent's attacks.

Emmanuel now enters the off season and will be back on the field in February as the spring scrimmages begin on February 28 at NCAA D I Alabama State.
