KANSAS CITY, Kan.-- The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) released the 2012 NCAA Division III Women's Soccer All-Region and All-America teams on Tuesday.

Eastern's Katelyn Rittenhouse (East Earl, Pa./ Lancaster Mennonite) received Third Team All-Mid-Atlantic-Region honors, and Alysia Goodman (Ephrata, Pa./ Ephrata) received First Team All-Mid-Atlantic-Region honors and Second Team All-America honors.

Rittenhouse, a senior back, helped Eastern to nine shutouts this season. Rittenhouse, who earned All-Region recognition her freshman season, bounced back from injuries her sophomore and junior years to return to the All-Region team for her senior campaign.

Eagles' head coach Dan Mouw said he was proud of Rittenhouse's ability to recover and return to such a high level of play. "It was huge for the success of our team this year to have Katelyn return to form after missing two years with injury," he said. "Not only is she a great individual defender, but her ability to organize and lead in the back made us better as a team. This is great recognition for all the hard work she put in."

Rittenhouse also recently received CoSIDA Academic All-District Performer honors for excellence on the field and in the classroom.

Alysia Goodman (Ephrata, Pa./ Ephrata)

Goodman, a senior keeper who has now earned All-Region honors for the third straight year, earned All-America honors for the first time. This season Goodman logged 1,608 minutes in goal and allowed just 12 goals for a low GAA of 0.67. Goodman tabbed 107 saves this year and even scored three goals. She finished her career with the best GAA in school history, 0.62 GAA.

Coach Dan Mouw said Goodman's recognition was well-deserved. "No other goalkeeper does what Alysia does, and I think the coaches that vote on these awards recognized that," he said. "She has unique gifts as a player, but her development this year went far beyond athletic giftedness. Aly really learned the position and played it at a completely different level than what we've seen. She put in a ton of work to get there was a major factor in the success our team had this year. [Assistant coach Neil Hobbins] did a great job teaching Aly this year, and Aly was a fantastic student. I'm very proud of all she's done in her career at Eastern."

Eastern Women's Soccer made it to the Freedom Conference Finals and finished the season with a record of 10-6-4.
