Southampton, NY -  Southampton Senior Annelie Andersson and Sophomore Charlotte Svensson have been selected into prestigious NCAA division II All-American soccer teams.

Players are picked from within the NCAA’s 200 plus Division II participating colleges.

Andersson, the captain of this year’s Lady Colonials, made it into the third team All-America midfield selection. She led her team to a school breaking record of 16-0-2 and a NYCAC regular season title.

Sophomore Svensson, a second team All American defense selection, was the dominant force in the Lady Colonial’s defense which held opposing teams to a record low 9 goals against (.5GAA) in the regular season.

Anderson said she would like to dedicate her All American selection to her teammates and coaches, as what she achieved this year was a team effort.

“It’s an honor to be an All-American selection, as it shows that our team was recognized nationally.  If we had gone further into the NCAA tournament I’m sure we would have had more players selected in the All-American team,” she said.
