Three members of the Middlebury College women's soccer team were honored today with the conference announced its all-league teams. Junior Anjuli Demers (Dracut, Mass.) earned first-team honors, while seniors Caitlin Parker (Seattle, Wash.) and Lindsay Rotherham (Bozeman, Mont.) were both named to the second-team. The three helped lead the Panthers to an 8-6-2 record, including a 5-2 mark in their final seven games with a trip to the NESCAC semifinals.
