GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior midfielder Leah Greene, senior forward Audrey Reid and sophomore backs Taylor Clar and Rachel Walsh were each chosen as United Soccer Coaches All-East Region Selections, announced Tuesday evening. Greene, Reid and Clar were each first-team all-stars while Walsh landed a third-team nod.
The Knights earned four all-region honors for the first time since 1994, tying William Smith for the most All-East Region honors.
Greene finished the season with seven goals, including the overtime game-winner in the NCAA First Round victory over Penn St.-Berks. Greene started in all 22 games for the Knights, and ends her career tied for ninth in Geneseo history with 27 goals and tied for 11th with 66 points. She becomes the first Geneseo women's soccer player to be named a three-time All-Region First Team selection.
Reid set program records with 19 goals and 46 points this season on her way to a first-team all-region selection. The forward scored multiple goals in six games this season, including a hat trick in a 3-2 overtime victory over Oneonta (Sept. 29). She finishes her career ranked 14th in Geneseo history with 61 points.
Clar earned her second-consecutive All-Region First Team honor, starting all 22 games for the Knights on defense. The center back scored a goal in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Championship and recorded an assist in the Knights' NCAA Tournament First Round win over Penn St.-Berks.
Walsh was named All-Region Third Team after starting in all 22 games alongside Clar at center back. She finished the season with a goal and an assist, and contributed to 12 Geneseo shutouts. The Knights' defense allowed just 12 goals in 22 games, ranking 23rd in NCAA Division III with a 0.53 goals against average.
The Knights tied the program record for wins, finishing the year with an 18-2-2 mark. The team hosted the first and second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time, and advanced to the round of 16 for the second time in program history with overtime victories over Penn St.-Berks, 2-1, and Misericordia, 1-0, before falling to Johns Hopkins, 2-0, to end the season.
