Johns Hopkins Lands Three on NSCAA All-Region Team
BALTIMORE, MD- Three members of the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team were honored by the NSCAA as All-Mid-Atlantic Region, the organization announced Wednesday. Meg Van de Loo was named First Team All-Region, while Ana Bengoechea was named second-team and Kristen Hori earned third-team honors.
The trio bring Hopkins’ total NSCAA All-Region selections up to 47 in program history, and this marks the 12th consecutive season that at least two Blue Jays were named all-region.
Van de Loo was a catalyst for the JHU offense all season, scoring 17 goals and two assists (36 points). The Eau Claire, WI native was named First-Team All-Centennial last month and also took home the Centennial Conference Tournament’s MVP honors after scoring an overtime goal to help Hopkins win the title.
This marks the third-straight year that Bengoechea received all-region honors. The junior was named first-team in each of the previous two seasons and battled through injuries this year to score three goals and four assists (10 points). A native of North Bethesda, MD, Bengoechea was also named First Team All-Centennial last month.
Hori was one of just three freshman to earn All-Mid-Atlantic Region recognition this season. The Honolulu, HI native led the team in assists (9), while finishing second in both goals (6) and points (21). Her nine assists were the third most from a freshman in program history.
The Blue Jays wrapped up their season last month, falling to Bowdoin in the NCAA Tournament. Hopkins concluded the 2015 season with a 14-5-1 record and earned the program’s 12th Centennial Conference championship.
