The Rose-Hulman women’s soccer team swept three major awards and placed 10 players on the all-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference team in results released by the league Tuesday.

Jennifer Gordon earned HCAC Player of the Year honors, Molly Richardson captured league Freshman of the Year accolades and Brad Hauter was named conference Coach of the Year.

In addition to Gordon and Richardson, first-team all-league honorees included Morgan Coan, Sarah Graber, Rachel Miller, Liz Ridgway and Julie Roebel.

Rose players capturing second-team all-league accolades were Caroline Bundrick, Ame Turner and Jen Lyman.

Gordon leads all NCAA soccer players (male or female in Division I, II and III) with 26 assists and 1.24 assists per game this season. She has added seven goals to share the conference scoring lead with 40 points.

Gordon’s career has featured school records with 49 career assists, in addition to her conference record 26 assists this fall. The biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering double major has earned two ESPN The Magazine academic all-district honors in her career and is a finalist for the Academic All-America Team this fall.

Richardson sparked Rose-Hulman’s offense with 17 goals and ranks third in the conference, behind Gordon and Roebel, with 39 points. Her efforts have included seven game-winning goals, including the lone score in the HCAC championship-game victory over Transylvania last weekend.

Hauter has coached the Engineers to a school-record 19-2 mark this season, including 16 conference victories entering the team’s first NCAA Division III tournament appearance that begins this weekend against Denison.

Rose-Hulman earned its first conference championship in women’s soccer this fall and also chalked up the first league title in women’s athletics history at the college.
