Pipers Place Pair On Women's Soccer All-Conference Team

In a season where the Hamline women's soccer team basically rewrote their record book, add another first to it: The Pipers have two representatives on the All-MIAC team.

Aileen Scheibner and Jordan Sammons (pictured) were named to the 21-member team, the first time the school has ever had more than one player on it. In addition, Kelsey Caracciolo earned a spot on the Honorable Mention roster.

It may not be the last time Scheibner and Sammons get so honored. The sophomores were standouts as the Pipers won a school record 12 games and posted nine shutouts. Scheibner, who made the team for the second year in a row, tied with Caracciolo for the team lead in goals with nine and led in points with 21. Schiebner also earned an Athlete Of the Week honor for the second year in a row when she had a pair of two goal games in the last week of September.

Sammons was officially listed as a defender but she often dominated the middle of the field and, as evidenced by her four goals, had the ability to score as well. She has traded in her cleats for sneakers and is currently preparing for a new season as a member of the Piper basketball team.

Caracciolo made her senior season one to remember by tying Scheibner for the team lead in goals scored. She went on a tear in the last week of the season, netting all three goals in the Pipers' final two games.

Senior Emily Stein was named to the All-Sportsmanship team.
