A women's soccer season at Seton Hill wouldn't be complete without Emily LoPresti making all-conference.

The junior forward garnered all-PSAC honors for the third time in her career, most recently earning a first-team nod after helping the Griffins to a record-breaking season.

She was a third-teamer as a freshman and made the second team as a sophomore.

LoPresti led the team and conference in goals (16), including nine winners. She finished with 35 points.

In addition, sophomore forward Katie Kimmich (Franklin Regional) and junior goalkeeper Jessica Neill made the all-PSAC third team.

Kimmich had 17 points, and Neill was 12-6-1 with six shutouts and a 1.27 goals-against average.

The team set a program record for wins as an NCAA program (12) and made the conference playoffs for the first time, where Seton Hill lost to Kutztown in the first round. The Griffins finished 10-0 at home.
