Senior defender Lauren Roy, of the Capital University women's soccer team, has been named to the NCAA Division III National Tournament All-Tournament Team following the Crusaders first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament National Semifinals.
Roy, a Toledo, Ohio, native, earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team after helping the Crusaders lock down the back half of their defensive line, while appearing in her first-ever NCAA Division III National semifinal match.
On the season, Roy tallied four points on two goals, both of which came in two of the biggest games for the Crusaders this season, as she scored one of four goals in a 4-0 shutout win over John Carroll in the Ohio Athletic Conference Tournament Championship, while the other goal was the biggest of her career in a 2-1 victory over Thomas More (Ky.) in the NCAA Tournament Sectional Semifinals.
All season long, Capital's defense has been the backbone of its OAC regular season and Tournament Championship honors, while also helping lead the Crusaders on an incredible run through the NCAA Tournament, all while helping strong goalkeeping allow a 0.76 goals per game mark on a .059 shot percentage to its opponents.
Capital capped off its historical season this past Friday, falling 1-0, against William Smith (N.Y.) in an NCAA Tournament National Semifinal match, finishing with a program best 19 wins (19-5-2 overall).
