Four Players Earn All-Conference Recognition

The 2008 SCIAC Women’s Soccer All-Conference team was announced November 14th, with four Pomona-Pitzer players earning SCIAC recognition. Junior Elli Seo received her third consecutive 1st team All-Conference award.  Seo was a key player on the Sagehen attack, picking up four goals and five assists on the year.  Also receiving 1st team recognition was junior Claire McGroder.  McGroder highlighted a strong Sagehen defense that allowed the second fewest goals in conference play.  This is McGroder's second year of All-SCIAC recognition, as she was named to the 2nd team in 2006.  Freshman forward Katy Metcalf led the team in scoring this season with six goals.  Her stellar play down the stretch earned her 2nd team All-Conference status and bodes well for the future.  Also recognized by the conference coaches was senior Lily Hitchner.  After two years on the All-Conference squad, Hitchner’s senior year was cut short due to injury, but her efforts in the classroom and in the community earned her the SCIAC Award of Distinction, given to one player from all the women’s soccer teams in the conference.
