The Quincy University women's basketball team continues to pile up the postseason awards.

Senior defender Sam Andert was named a first-team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America on Tuesday. Freshman midfielder Ashley Burton was named an NSCAA third-team All-American. Both were consensus All-Americans, having earlier been given the honor by Daktronics, which is voted on by the nation's sports information directors.

The NSCAA All-Midwest Region teams were also announced Tuesday, and the Lady Hawks were represented by a program-record six players. Senior forward Brittany Casey joined Andert and Burton on the first team. Junior midfielder Kristine Vogt and junior forward Jaclyn Mastroianni were named to the all-region second team, and junior goalkeeper Jodi Chapie was selected as third-team all-region performer.

Hawk takes honor: Honors continue for Quincy University men's soccer player Chris Garavaglia, who racked up another award as he was once again recognized for a stellar season as a defender for the Hawks.
The sophomore received NSCAA Second Team All-America honors on Tuesday (Dec. 4) afternoon.  NSCAA All-Americans are chosen by NCAA Division II men's soccer coaches.

Just recently, Garavaglia was named a Daktronics third team All-American on November 29th.
