2016 all-CCAC Women's Soccer Team

Kayla Anderson and Jordan Eisenberg were named to the all-CCAC Women's Soccer First Team and teammates Jess Mlachnik, Sarah Treat and Nicole Staines were selected to the second team as the conference announced its postseason awards today.

Anderson, a senior from Naperville, Ill., was the backbone of the St. Ambrose defense, a defense that allowed just 0.90 goals per match. She also ended the year as the Bees' leading scorer, finishing with 11 goals and a pair of assists. Three of her goals were game-winners.

Down the stretch Anderson came up big, with six goals over the team's final five matches, including the game-winning goal in a 3-0 win over then-No. 21 Cardinal Stritch on Oct. 29.

She was a two-time CCAC Defensive Player of the Week this season.

Anderson finished her career with 16 goals and five assists.

Eisenberg, a senior from Quincy, Ill., was one of three Bees to start every match this year. She finished third on the team with seven goals and added two assists.

She scored a hat trick in the Bees' big win at Holy Cross on Sept. 24 and had a pair of goals in a 3-3 tie at Culver-Stockton in early September.

Eisenberg's 24 career goals are 12th most in program history and she is 16th at SAU with 60 career points (24 goals, 12 assists).

Mlachnik, a senior from Muskego, Wis., provided a physical presence in the middle of the field. She finished the season with five goals and three assists. Two of her goals came in SAU's 5-1 CCAC Tournament quarterfinal win over St. Francis on Nov. 5. Mlachnik totaled 10 goals and five assists in her three-year Bee career.

Treat, a senior from Springfield, Ill., was second on St. Ambrose with both eight goals and six assists. She had a pair of two-goal games, including in the season-opener against the University of Northern Iowa. Treat recorded 14 goals and 10 assists as a Bee.

Staines, a junior from Waverly, Iowa, finished the year 14-4-2 overall with eight shutouts in goal for SAU. Seven of her shutouts came in conference play. She allowed just 0.89 goals per match. Over the last two years, Staines has 27 wins and 17 shutouts with a 0.95 goals-against average.

The conference also named 11 Bees to its all-academic team. Anderson, Eisenberg, Staines, Treat, Christina Franzese, Emily Rappold, Kaitlin Schmidt, Kristen Slomba, Mary Tadda, Kaelin Trippe and Madison Volpert were recognized for their work in the classroom.

The Bees finished the season 14-4-2 overall and took third in the CCAC with a 10-2 conference mark. The year came to an end with a 1-0 loss at No. 22 Olivet Nazarene in the CCAC Tournament semifinals Wednesday night.
