Soccer Players Make NCAA All-Region, Including First-Ever 1st Team

Webster University women's soccer players Ashley Mess and Brianna Pagan were voted to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's (NSCAA) 2015 NCAA III All-Central Region Team, with one making Webster history.

Mess became the first First Team selection in Webster program history, while Pagan was a Third Team choice for a second straight year.

Mess, a senior from St. Louis (Northwest HS) anchored a Webster defense that allowed just 21 goals in 19 games this past season.  Mess was named the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 2015 Co-Defensive Player of the Year and was a SLIAC First-Team All-Conference selection for a second straight year as well.  She finished the season with four goals and five assists.

Mess is now eligible for NSCAA All-American consideration by virtue of her First Team selection.

Pagan, a sophomore midfielder from St. Louis (Washington HS), had four goals and two assists this past season.  She was also a SLIAC First-Team All-Conference choice and now has the distinction of garnering both All-Central Region and SLIAC First Team recognition her first two seasons of collegiate play.

Webster went 13-5-1 overall this year, winning the SLIAC title for a fourth straight season with an 8-1 record. Webster has gone 33-2 in the SLIAC over that period.
