INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --- Eleven Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference soccer student-athletes have been named to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division III All-Great Lakes Region teams.

Maddie Fleet, Third Team, Franklin

The Indianapolis, Ind.-native became a four-time all-region selection by the United Soccer Coaches. Fleet was a first team selection in 2015 and 2016 and picked up second team honors in 2017.

Fleet put on another dominant performance in 2018, earning HCAC Offensive Player of the Year honors for the fourth straight year, becoming the first athlete in conference history to do so. She finished her final season with 22 goals and four assists for 48 points, leading the conference in scoring for the fourth straight year.

For her career, Fleet netted 96 goals and handed out 34 assists for 226 points, setting program records in all three categories. Additionally, her 22 game-winning goals are also the most in the history of the Franklin women's soccer program and earlier this month, she became a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-District selection.  

Brandi Brock, First Team, Hanover

Brock was tabbed a first team all-HCAC selection in early-November, as she paced the Panther offense with nine goals and 25 total points. The junior midfielder also tied for the team-high in assists with seven, which ranked among the top three in the conference. Brock was key to HC's success late in the season, as she recorded at least one point in six of the final eight games. The junior also netted the game-winner in double overtime at Mount St. Joseph in late October, which secured the Panthers their fifth HCAC regular season title in six years.

Amanda Carmosino, First Team, Hanover

Carmosino, the 2018 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year and first team selection, tallied a season goal against average of 0.41, which led the league and ranked 17th across all of NCAA Division III.

The goalkeeper logged nine solo shutouts and was a part of all 11 clean sheets for HC this season.

Cassidy Evanson, Second Team, Hanover

Evanson, who is the only current member in the program with multiple all-region accolades from the United Soccer Coaches, tallied a career-high six goals this fall.

All three of Evanson's offensive marks this season were higher than her 2017 totals, which earned her second team all-region accolades.

Shannon Hawkins, Second Team, Hanover

A backline led by Hawkins allowed a goal against average of 0.594 this season, while also recording the aforementioned 11 shutouts. The senior, who was a first team all-HCAC honoree, played a vital part in a defense that conceded eight shots per game, less than four on goal, and a .071 shot percentage. Hawkins' lone goal of the season came in a 2-0 win over Rose-Hulman on Oct. 11.

Kelsey Hughes, Second Team, Hanover

Hughes joined Brock and Evanson in an explosive, but balanced offensive attack this fall.
