The Eastern Michigan University’s league office announced the women’s soccer team was awarded Mid-American Conference postseason honors, Thursday, Nov. 2.
Junior Peyton Davis earned an All-MAC Second Team honors while freshman Madeline Olson earned an All-Freshman selection.
Davis became the 20th player in school history to land on the all-conference Second Team, all while having a career season for the Eagles. She was one of four Eagle players to start every game in 2017 and she made the most of her minutes by recording five goals and 12 assists, all of which were career highs. Like Davis, Olson started every game this season -- the only freshman to do so -- while ranking second on the team in goals. Olson was able to close the season riding a three match point streak, the longest by an Eagle since Angela Vultaggio from Sept. 26 through Oct. 3, 2014.
"The most exciting part about playing on the pitch for EMU is definitely being able to compete every weekend and be able to make a difference on the field," Davis said.
"I love coming on the field and working with my team to score goals and win games. I'm excited to do that next year."
Eastern Michigan finished the 2017 campaign with a 7-12-1 record, including a 4-7-0 mark in conference play, narrowly missing the MAC tournament.
"This group of girls has a lot of talent, and I'm eager to start working in the offseason so that we are physically and mentally prepared for next fall season," Davis said.
"The season grind was tough so I am looking forward to having some down time with my family and friends."
