MAC All-Conference Release
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A trio of Missouri State field hockey players gathered All-Mid-American Conference honors for the 2012 season, the conference announced Thursday. Senior defender Reiann Stoute and junior forward Hillary Lawless claimed spots on the All-MAC First Team, while freshman forward Holly Scherer was named to the Second Team.
Lawless and Scherer were All-MAC players for the first time, while Stoute made the All-MAC Second Team in 2011.
Lawless earned a spot on the first team by becoming one of the top scoring threats in the conference. With nine goals and three assists, the native of St. Louis, Mo. was fourth among all conference players in points (21). She also ranked third in points per game (1.31), goals per game (0.56), and tied for third in goals scored.
Stoute was an outstanding all-around player in 2012, as the senior led the conference with 11 defensive saves and showed a much-improved offensive attack. Stoute ranked 10th in the conference with 2.07 shots per game and tied for fourth in game-winning goals (two).
Scherer was one of only two freshmen who made the cut for the 2012 All-MAC teams. The forward swooped into the all-conference picture with a four-goal performance in Missouri State’s final game of the season, a 5-2 triumph over visiting Saint Louis. The performance gave her five goals in her inaugural campaign, and she ended the season among the MAC’s top-10 players in assists (five), assists per game (0.31) and game-winning goals (two).
