Knights Bring Four to the Table in USA South Post Season Conference Honors

BUENA VISTA, VA. — The USA South Athletic Conference today announced the women's soccer All-Conference Teams, with Makinna Winterton earning a First Team All-Conference selection and three other Knights receiving East Division honors.

Winterton received the top honors on the team, being selected to the USA South All-Conference First Team and First Team East Division. Winterton's selection marks the first player in program history to be selected to an All-Conference first team, finishing the season with nine goals and 19 total points. The Charlottesville native recorded two-goal games two separate times against NC Wesleyan and William Peace.

Freshmen Anna Roberts and Ella Thomas join Winterton in the First Team East Division selection being staples in the team's success this year. Roberts led the way at the midfield position, starting all 17 games while dishing out a team-high four assists. Thomas anchored the defense all year, helping lead the squad to the team's first conference tournament appearance.

Makya Lindgren rounds out the All-Conference awards, being selected to the Second Team East Divison for the forwards position.

The McKinleyville, California native scored a career-high four goals in the 5-4 comeback victory against Salem in Knight Stadium.

For the All-Sportsmanship Team, goalkeeper Alyssa Trueman was honored to round out the awards for the Knights. Trueman was the voice of the defense all year, using her experience in the net to help guide a young defensive unit.

Southern Virginia will look to continue with the current success, hosting Maryville (TN) in Knight Stadium for the second round of the USA South Conference Tournament on Saturday, October 30. Game time is scheduled for 5 pm.
