ATLANTA — The Berry College women’s soccer program placed five total student-athletes on the All-Conference teams, the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) league offices announced on Monday.
Berry’s Megan Radosta led the way as the lone first-team honoree. Olivia Nye, Vanessa Belanger and Samantha Schoppy earned second-team recognition with Alyssa Stevens earning a spot on the honorable mention squad.
Radosta, a senior defender from Sandy Springs, Ga., earned her second-straight All-SAA nod and first spot on the All-Conference first team. She passed one assist this season, helping the Vikings to a 9-4-4 overall record for the 2018 season. That mark is Berry's best overall record since 2015 and the Vikings' 4-1-2 finish in SAA play is the best since the 2014 season.
Nye, a sophomore forward from Lynchburg, Va., earned her first All-SAA selection after a career season. She scored four goals and passed a pair of assists, both career-highs. Her four goals also tied for the team-lead.
Belanger, a freshman midfielder from Knoxville, Tenn., earned second-team honors in her first season of competition. She also scored four goals this season, tying the team-lead.
Schoppy, a senior midfielder from Canton, Ga., earned her fourth straight All-SAA honor also scoring four goals this season.
Stevens, a freshman goalkeeper from Lexington, S.C., had a strong opening season in goal for Berry. She ranked top-five in the league in saves, save percentage, goals against and goals against average.
