Monday, December 1, 2003



HAMMOND, La. – Centenary Ladies soccer players Mindi Levinski and Sam Savage have been honored by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association, as Levinski was named to the All-Louisiana First Team and Savage earned Newcomer of the Year honors.

Levinski, a junior from Allen, Tex., led the Ladies with eight goals and 11 assists on the year. She finished the season as the top scorer in the Mid-Continent Conference and helped Centenary close out the season with an 8-1-2 run to finish with a 10-7-3 overall record.

Savage, a sophomore transfer from Grapevine, Tex., was the top defender on Centenary’s squad. She led a Centenary defense that recorded six shutouts, while also scoring a goal and adding three assists. Besides being named Newcomer of the Year, Savage earned honorable mention recognition in the voting.

Both Levinski and Savage were named First Team All-Mid-Continent Conference after leading the Ladies to a third-place finish in the conference and a conference tournament berth, where they forced host school Oral Roberts to a penalty kick shootout.

Freshman forward Rebecca Swilley, a native of Colorado Springs, Colo., was also given honorable mention recognition by the LSWA after a four-goal, three-assist campaign that earned Second Team All-Mid-Con Conference honors.

The 2003 All-Louisiana soccer team was selected by the state’s sports information directors. The top 10 vote getters, regardless of position, were named to the first team, as well as the top goalkeeper. Players named on multiple ballots were eligible for honorable mention recognition.
