The Eastern Washington University women's soccer team had three players named to the All-Big Sky Conference first team after an outstanding season saw the Eagles claim second place in the conference with a 4-2-1 record. Entering the 2009 season, five times had an Eastern player earn first-team accolades.

Named to the first team were defender Chelsey Hannesson, midfielder Brittney Doran and forward Brittany Sparks. Earning honorable mention accolades were four more Eagles: goalkeeper Lisa Dimak, defender Hannah Kreminski, midfielder Lauren Jacobsen and forward Whitney Brannan.

EWU in Big Sky Tournament

EWU plays Idaho St. in a BSC semi-final
game at 1:30 p.m. on Friday.  The winner
advances to the conference finals to
play the winner between Portland St. and
Nothern Arizona.  The BSC winner gets
an automatic berth into the NCAA
Championships.
Hannesson earned second team All-Big Sky honors as a junior and honorable mention accolades as a sophomore. She has three assists this year and has been an outstanding defensive player for the Eagles. The senior has played in 70 games in her career, two from the school record, entering this week.   

Doran was named second team All-Big Sky as a freshman in 2005. She has been an important part of Eastern's team throughout her career, starting 65 contests, the third-most in school history. Offensively, she scored the goal that gave EWU a 1-0 road win over Montana in the season finale.

Sparks attained All-Big Sky second team honors last year as a sophomore. This year, she led the league in scoring with 0.65 goals per game, an average that places her 31st among NCAA Division I players. She also set the team record for goals in a season with 11 and has tied the career mark with 14.

Dimak has posted four shutouts this season, all in Big Sky play, moving to within one of the single-season school record. Her four shutouts this year also tie her for fourth-most in a career by an Eagle.

Kreminski had a pivotal role in helping lead a back line post those four blankings. That shutout total was the most by any Big Sky school in conference games only in 2009.

Jacobsen scored twice on just six shots in 2009. The first goal was pivotal in that it helped the Eagles win in Ogden, Utah, against Weber State, the preseason league favorites, for the first time, 1-0.

Brannan ranked in the top 10 in the Big Sky in both goals per game and points per game this season with 0.29 and 0.76 averages placing her seventh and eighth, respectively.

The Eagles (7-8-2) will play Idaho State (9-7, 4-3 BSC) in a Big Sky semifinal at 1:30 p.m. on Friday (Nov. 6) in Portland, Ore.
