Weide Wins Second MIAA Most Valuable Player Award

ROYAL OAK, Mich. - The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association has announced its 2014 All-MIAA women's soccer team, as voted on by the league's coaches.

Adrian College midfielder Erin Weide (Madison Heights/Bishop Foley HS), who was the MIAA's Most Valuable Player in 2012, was named the MVP for the second time after tying for the MIAA scoring championship with nine goals and 20 points in conference play for the season. Weide also became the 13th MIAA women's soccer player to be named First Team All-MIAA four consecutive years and the first in Adrian College history. It's the fourth straight year an Adrian College player has received women's soccer Most Valuable Player honors, with Sam Barker being honored in 2011 and 2013.

Weide played in all 20 matches for the Bulldogs this season and finished overall with 11 goals and two assists. She attempted 53 shots with 26 on goal and also had three game-winning goals including two in overtime. Weide scored a goal in four of the first six matches this season and fittingly scored in her final collegiate match at Saint Mary's on Nov. 1 in a 2-1 victory. She also set a career-high with four goals, which was one shy of the school record, against Alma on Oct. 28 in a 5-2 win in her last home match.

Weide leaves after 82 career matches in which she totaled 49 goals and 20 assists. She ranks second all-time at Adrian College in points (118), goals and assists. Weide ranks third with 15 game-winning goals and shots on goal (138).

"Erin has cemented her legacy not only as one of the best players in Adrian history, but also in MIAA history," said head coach Ali Alamdari. "Several other coaches in the league sent their heartfelt congratulations, and I believe it's a testament to the respect that she has earned over the course of her stellar career. We've witnessed a tremendous era of Adrian Soccer over the past four years, and we're excited to continue working toward that level of excellence in the future."
