LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Centenary women’s soccer player Marissa Hughes was named to the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team, as released by the conference office on Tuesday. Hughes was one of three freshmen from the conference named to the team.

One of the top defenders for the Ladies this season, Hughes was charged with the duty of defending one of the SCAC’s top goal scorers in Sioned Kirkpatrick among helping anchor a defensive unit for the Maroon and White.

“Marissa had a “stand out” performance in the conference tournament against Texas Lutheran,” said head coach Glenn Evans. “She left her heart on the field during the match and as a coach how could you ask for more.  She was one of six freshmen for us this season and proved to be a very pleasant surprise and was one of our best defenders.”

Hughes, who attempted seven shots this season as a defender with three coming on goal, was the lone Centenary representative on the team. SCAC Champion Trinity placed six on the team headlined by Kelsey Falcone and Emily Donnan as the offensive and defensive MVPs for the tournament. TLU along with the University of Dallas and Southwestern each placed two members on the list.

Centenary, which fell 1-0 in overtime to TLU, concluded the season with a 5-13-2 overall record after gaining a berth into the conference tournament for the first time since 2004.
