Rider's Meier All-Region
LAWRENCEVILLE--Rider University junior Jennifer Meier was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America as an All-Region selection.
A First Team All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference selection this year, Meier (Sayville, NY/St. Anthony's) was named to the Third Team All-Northeast Regional Team by the NSCAA.
"It is great for Jenn to receive this recognition from the NSCAA," said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome. "It is also great for our soccer program and Rider Athletics to have a student-athlete named to an All-Regional team for the second consecutive year."
Abi Cottam, a two-time Academic All-American at Rider, was an All-Northeast Regional Team selection in 2011.
Other members of the All-Northeast Region team this year were from such teams as Marquette, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Louisville and Boston University.
Meier finished 10th in the MAAC in both points (11) and goals (four) this season, while leading the MAAC in shots per game from her midfield position.
The Broncs finished tied for fourth place in the MAAC at 5-3-1 and compiled an overall record of 10-4-3, Rider's most wins since the 2004 season and the highest winning percentage (.676) in program history.
