Two Laramie County Community College Golden Eagles women’s soccer players were recognized for their performance this season on the field. Sophomore Eden Stoddard (New South Wales, Australia) and freshman Jemma House (Sydney, Australia) earned NJCAA All-American honors.
Stoddard earned a spot on the NJCAA All-American second team. She was the third leading scorer this season with 12 goals, and she recorded three assists on the year. Stoddard started in 17 of the 21 games she played in this year. For her career at LCCC, she has 20 goals and seven assists.
“(Stoddard) deserved a spot on there, because she had a fantastic season and was Player of the Year in our region,” said LCCC head coach Jim Gardner. “She fought hard through injuries early on and was a threat in the midfield and up top for us, especially in the air.”
House made the NJCAA All-American third team. She led the Golden Eagles in scoring with 15 goals and in assists with 10. House was fifth in the country in shots with 90 on the year, and she started in 17 of the 20 games she played.
“(House) showed really well at the National Tournament and caught the eyes of other coaches with her explosiveness and ability to take players off the dribble to create for herself,” said Gardner.
The Golden Eagles finished the 2015 season 15-5-2 and made their seventh National Tournament appearance.
