HANOVER, IN - Hanover College sophomore defender Abby Shroyer (Zionsville, Ind.) has been selected a third-team All-America by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s defensive player of the year, Shroyer anchored the Panthers' defensive unit, which limited opponents to just 7.35 shots and 0.63 goals per contest with 10 shutouts.
Shroyer is the fourth Hanover player to earn all-America honors in the past four seasons. She joins Kaitlin McCulloch (3rd team, 2012), Rachel Alvis (2nd, 2013) and Anna Cornacchione (3rd, 2014) as the program's consecutive all-America selections.
Shroyer is a two-time first-team All-HCAC honoree and also a two-time NSCAA All-Great Lakes Region selection.
Hanover posted a 15-6 overall record this fall and advanced to the NCAA Division III tourney for the fourth time in the past five seasons.
The Panthers earned the HCAC’s regular-season title with an 8-1 record. The squad captured its fourth league tournament crown with wins against Transylvania University (Ky.) and Franklin College.
