Meier, Maierle Honored by CollegeSportsMadness has announced its Women’s Soccer Preseason All-Star team for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Two Rider University Broncs, senior Jennifer Meier (Sayville, NY/St. Anthony’s) and freshman Heather Maierle (Wantagh, NY/Friends Academy) were honored by the website.

Meier was named to the First Team All-MAAC and Maierle was named the MAAC Preseason Freshman of the Year.

“It is great for Jenn to be recognized on last year’s performances and Heather to be recognized based on her high school and club achievements the last 12 months,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome, who led the 2012 Broncs to the highest winning percentage (.676) in program history. “We are looking forward to them both having successful seasons.”

Meier was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Third Team Scholar All-America Team last year as an All-MAAC midfielder.

A veteran of 52 Rider games, Meier enters her senior season fifth on Rider's all-time scoring list with 45 points, fifth in goals with 18 and 10th in assists with nine.

Maierle was a five-year starter for the Friends Academy, leading the Quakers to five County Championships, three Long Island Championships and two New York State finals, winning the State Championship in 2011.

A two-year captain, Maierle earned All-Class and All-State honors. She led her ECNL premier team East Meadow United to the 2007 and 2011 ENYSA State Championships and in 2011 was selected to the ECNL id2 Player Development Program.

The Rider women’s soccer season begins August 23 with a game at Bucknell. The home opener is August 30 against Bryant.
