Foote and Lewandowski Named to All-MIAA First and Second Team

FREELAND, Mich.--Adrian seniors Tori Foote and Lexi Lewandowski were named to the All-MIAA First and Second Team as announced by the MIAA Coaches on Wednesday, November 10.

Foote, who was named to the first team as a defender, received more votes than any other defender in the conference. She was an integral part of a defense responsible for tying the 2012 Bulldog squad's school record for shutouts in a season with 11, Foote is the only player to start for both of those teams. "After being looked over for this honor in the past, Tori played this season with something to prove, and I agree with the other MIAA coaches that she was the best defender in the conference," said Adrian Head Coach, Ali Alamdari, "She was a true captain, a leader on and off the field that was willing to sacrifice herself physically every day to get a result.  This is a fitting reward for a one of the best defenders to ever put on a Bulldog uniform."

Lewandowski was named to the second team as a goalkeeper. She had the best start of the season than any Adrian goalkeeper before her posting four straight shutouts giving the Bulldogs a 2-0-2 record. Like Foote, Lexi was a big part in the record-tying 11 shutouts for the season. She recorded a season save percentage of .847 which was the best in the conference. She also had the second most saves in the MIAA with 111. "Lex's performances this season were always dependable and often spectacular," said Coach Alamdari, "She's had her share of injuries in the past but we saw her fight through them, improve consistently throughout her career, and most importantly earn the right to step off the field at the top of her game."
