At the beginning of November, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced their All-Conference women’s soccer teams for the 2011 season. Courtney Bernecker '14 was named to the All-Conference Second Team as a midfielder.

There is a reason the soccer team gave Courtney Bernecker ‘14 the nickname "Fancy Feet."

At the beginning of November, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced their All-Conference women’s soccer teams for the 2011 season. Bernecker was named to the All-Conference Second Team as a midfielder.

"I was excited and happy all the hard work paid off," said Bernecker. "I felt lucky to be recognized."

Fancy footwork


Bernecker’s quick footwork on the field helped her score seven goals and assist two team mates in scoring this past season.

To choose the teams, the NEAC examines the performances of all the players in the conference, and ranks them based on performance, with chances of being named to the First, Second or Third Team. In total, 34 players in the conference are selected to receive this honor.

"I am excited and very proud of Courtney. She works extremely hard and has made a huge impact on our team. She deserves this recognition for her efforts," stated Head Soccer Coach Beth Weixel.

The last soccer player to earn a NEAC All-Conference honor was Colleen O’Reilly ‘12 in 2008.
