Sophomore Forward Anne Van Devender Lauded With First Team Honors

Sophomore Anne Van Devender

MISSION, Kansas -- Washington and Lee placed three players on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/adidas Division III All-South Region women's soccer team, which was announced on Friday afternoon.

Sophomore forward Anne Van Devender (Jackson, Miss./Choate Rosemary Hall) was named to the first team, while senior midfielder Maggie Megear (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor), senior forward Anne Wiltshire (Richmond, Va./Collegiate) and sophomore goalkeeper Kiki Moreo (Westport, Conn./Staples) were all named to the third team.

Van Devender received the honor after being named First Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference earlier this fall. She started 22 of the team's 23 games and posted a school-record 57 points for the season. Her 23 goals also tied the W&L season record, with seven of the scores serving as the game-winner. She also added 11 assists and ranked 18th in Division III in points per game (2.59 ppg).

A three-time All-ODAC selection, Megear received all-region recognition for the first time in her career after starting 21 of 23 games and recording one goal and one assist. She also helped the Generals lead all NCAA Divisions with a 0.127 goals-against average and 20 shutouts.

Wiltshire, a four-time All-ODAC honoree, was lauded with all-region honors for the third time in her career. A first team selection last season and a third team pick as a sophomore, Wiltshire started 21 games this fall and finished second on the team in scoring with 35 points on 14 goals and seven assists. She finished her career ranked second all-time at W&L in goals (57), assists (25) and points (139).

Moreo was named all-region after receiving Second Team All-ODAC honors earlier this fall. She shattered the record books this season after allowing just three goals in 21 games played. Her 0.156 goals-against average and .929 save percentage were both school records and ranked second and third in Division III, respectively.

Washington and Lee completed the 2006 campaign with a school record 19 victories (19-1-3). The Generals advanced to the NCAA Tournament "Elite Eight" for the first time in program history and finished the season ranked 10th in the final NSCAA/adidas Division III poll.
