KANSAS CITY, Kan.-Marshall women’s soccer player Erika Duncan (East Haven, Scotland) was named to the National Soccer Collegiate Athletic Association’s All-Central Region Second Team.  The award is the first All-Region accolade that a Thundering Herd player has earned since Amanda McMahon was named First-Team All-Great Lakes Region in 2001.

Duncan stands as one of 11 members of the second team and one of 33 that represent the Central Region.

“This is an exclamation point to a great career here,” head coach Kevin Long said.  “She leaves the leading scorer in history, tremendous in the classroom and will graduate on time.  This is another accolade that she will put along with the many others that she’s received here.” 

Duncan concluded her senior season with the Thundering Herd in November, finishing her career as the program’s all-time leading scorer.  The forward also ranks in the top-five in five additional career categories including points, game winning goals, multiple goal matches, shots and matches played. 


 

 

Duncan registered four of her five season goals during conference action this season to capture All-Conference USA second team honors in back-to-back years.  The senior also added four assists on the season to lead the team with 14 points.

“We were very fortunate to have her play here, I don’t think she is done playing so I look forward to seeing where her next path takes her,” Long continued. 

The honor is the second NSCAA award that Duncan has earned in her career.  Last season Duncan joined Rebecca Voss and Molly Snead as Scholar All-East Region Honorable Mentions.
