Senior goalkeeper Rylee Foster and sophomore defender Jordan Brewster of the West Virginia University women’s soccer team were named to the 2019 United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women’s All-Midwest Region Second Team, as announced on Tuesday.
“I am so proud of everything that Rylee and Jordan were able to accomplish this season,” WVU coach Nikki Izzo-Brown said. “They have both worked incredibly hard throughout the season, so I’m thrilled that all of their hard work this season has been recognized.”
The award marks the third consecutive season that Foster has been named to an All-Region team, after being selected to the first team in 2017 and 2018. Foster, a native of Woodbridge, Ontario, tied for second in the Big 12 with seven shutouts in 2019. She also ranked third in the league with 87 saves on the year.
Foster started 84 career games for the Mountaineers and finished second in program history with 39 shutouts and 7,670:10 goalkeeper minutes played in her career. She amassed 202 saves in her four-year career, which places fourth all-time.
The award marks the first of Brewster’s career. The North Canton, Ohio, native started all 21 matches for the Mountaineers this season and has anchored a backline that has earned nine clean sheets. She has registered four points on the year with one goal and a pair of assists.
