PROVO -- The BYU women's soccer team had four players selected to the Mountain West Conference All-Decade Soccer team. The selections, announced July 22, include forwards Maren Hendershot and Katie Larkin and midfielders Aleisha Rose and Jamie Beck.
Hendershot scored 52 goals over her career at BYU, tying her for second all-time in career goals scored with Sara Reading. As a senior, she was named to the NSCAA All-America First Team. She was also selected as the 1999 MWC player of the year and was named All-MWC First Team. She was also named to the MWC All-Tournament team. She is also second in career points, with 138.
Larkin, currently a senior on the team, has scored 23 goals in her time on the team. A three-time All-MWC First Team selection, she has totaled 68 points and has been the team's leading scorer for the past two years. She was named to All-America teams her sophomore and junior years.
Now working as an assistant coach for the team, Aleisha Rose was a four-time All-MWC First Team and All-America Team member. A highly-touted recruit, Rose finished her career eighth all-time in goals scored with 28, fourth overall in points with 250, and first overall with 47 assists.
A two-time All-MWC First Team selection, Jamie Beck lead the conference in goals and assists as a junior in 2004. As a senior, she lead the conference in points, goals and game-winning goals. She was also named to three All-America teams her senior year.
A combined panel of media, institutional and conference personnel as well as an on-line fan poll determined the selections for the team. To be eligible for the team, players must have been an All-MWC First-Team selection at least once in their careers.
The Cougars led all MWC schools with four athletes named to the team. UNLV, San Diego State, and Utah each had two athletes selected.
The 10th Anniversary teams are being named in conjunction with the celebration of the Mountain West Conference's 10th anniversary. During the 2008-09 sports seasons, teams will be named for all 19 conference-sponsored sports.
