Seven players from the FGCU women’s soccer team have received postseason awards. Among these awards sits the Player of the Year honor for Tabby Tindell, who has earned this award three consecutive times.
Along with Tindell’s recognition, three additional Eagles – Ashley Parks, Ali Rogers, and Paulina Speckmaier – also earned First Team honors.
For her freshman season, Lindsey Patton was rewarded with Second Team All-Conference and earned a spot in an All-Freshmen Team selection. Emilie Olsen and Melissa Weck also received All-Freshmen Team honors.
Senior forward, Tindell, was the only unanimous superlative selection and was also named First Team All-Conference. She has also become the first player in ASUN history to receive a superlative award each season she played, as well as the first to be named ASUN Player of the Year.
Tindell led in several offensive categories. The forward led in goals (13), assists (8) and points (34) this season after finishing at the top of the conference in goals and assists in each of her three previous seasons.
Outside of the conference, Tindell continues to rank supreme. She ended the regular season ranked second nationally in game-winning goals (7), third in total points and eighth in total goals.
This is Rogers’s first career post-season honor, earning First Team All-Conference honors. With 10 career goals, Rogers moved into a tie for tenth place all-time at FGCU, also receiving six assists for 26 career points.
Speckmaier earned a spot on the ASUN’s First Team for the third time in her career. She ended her senior season with three goals, and six assists, placing her in the top 5 in career goals (22), assists (21), and points (65) in FGCU history.
Her six assists put her in a tie for sixth in the ASUN this season and within the top 75 nationally.
Parks also earned a spot on the ASUN’s First Team. Though she did not score a goal this season, the centeback helped the Eagles allow only 13 goals this season, the fifth-lowest total in ASUN history. For conference play, that number went down even more, allowing their opponents only four goals – lowest in the ASUN.
Fellow centerback, Patton, earned a spot on the ASUN’s Second Team and the All-Freshmen Team in her first season at FGCU. Patton was also named the ASUN Defensive Player of the Week the final week of regular season.
The rookie made a huge impact for the Eagles as she started every game and played in all but 12 minutes. She was also named a Top 100 Freshmen by, ending the season with one goal and three assists while also helping in the back field.
Olsen was a unanimous All-Freshmen Team honoree, starting all 17 games, but scoring five goals in the last eight matches, totaling 13 points this season. The rookie ended the season eighth in the ASUN in both points and goals.
Weck stepped up after the departure of Brittany Brown and led the ASUN with nine shutouts. Her 0.76 goals against average also tops in the conference. Nationally, Weck finished the year 44th in goals against average and 11th in shutouts.
Weck’s performances earned her ASUN Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 3 and was also named to TopDrawer’s Team of the Week Sept. 6 following an 11 save performance against Alabama.
