Five Foresters Appear on All-Midwest Conference Lists

The All-Midwest Conference women's soccer teams were released Monday (November 16) and five Lake Forest College players made the lists.

Freshman forward Becky Esrock (St. Louis, Mo./Whitfield School) and senior sweeper Monica Thomas (Los Gatos, Calif./Los Gatos) were First Team All-MWC selections. Esrock set a new school record with 20 goals and led the team with 48 points, the second-highest single-season total in team history. She also ranked second in the league with 13 goals and 28 points during nine conference games. Thomas, who was a second team all-conference selection as a freshman, moved to sweeper this season and helped the Foresters rank second in the league with just 29 goals allowed in 19 games.

Junior midfielder Bianca Greene (Santa Monica, Calif./Santa Monica) and junior defender Emily Weber (Cincinnati, Ohio/Seven Hills Upper School) were Lake Forest's Second Team All-MWC honorees. Greene led the league with 15 assists, the second-highest total in program history. Weber helped the team post a 1.51 goals against average on the season and recorded nine points of her own on three goals and as many assists.

Joining Esrock in the Foresters' starting lineup at forward was fellow freshman Lisa Sorensen (Muskegon, Mich./Western Michigan Christian), who earned Honorable Mention All-MWC honors after ranking fifth in the conference with 34 points on 14 goals and six assists.

Lake Forest posted a 12-7-0 overall record and a 7-2-0 mark in league play. The Foresters tied for second place in the MWC regular season standings and fell 3-2 in the conference tournament semifinals to St. Norbert College.
