COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Dominican's women's soccer team saw four of its student-athletes named to the Ohio Collegiate Soccer Association (OCSA) Division II All-Ohio team, which matched a program-high in selections for a single school.
Junior Marissa Wierzbicki (Powell, Ohio) earned the distinction as the only keeper to be named to the list. Wierzbicki earned a program-record 16 wins at keeper this season and most recently garnered College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Third Team Academic All-America honors.
Also earning OCSA All-Ohio honors were seniors Lauren Bates (Hilliard, Ohio) and Alli Pavlik (Cortland, Ohio) and freshman Lindsay Buten (Cincinnati, Ohio). Bates was named a D2CCA First Team All-American and is the first student-athlete in program history to earn that status. Pavlik finished third all-time in goals scored in ODUWS history, recording 11 in 2017 and 30 for her career. The senior forward scored twice in ODU's 2-1 (2OT) win over McKendree on November 10 in the program's first NCAA Championship victory. Buten earns All-Ohio honors at defender after starting in all 23 contests for ODUWS and anchoring a defense that allowed just 1.01 goals per match.
Ohio Dominican women's soccer set a program record for victories in a single season with 16 wins and advanced to its furthest point in the NCAA Championship.
