Five UCO soccer players named All-Region

1 Broncho earns All-America honors

EDMOND — Central Oklahoma placed five players on the 2012 NSCAA/Continental Tire Women’s NCAA Division II All-Central Region Team, with Jordan Hutchison going on to earn second-team All-America recognition.

Making the first-team All-Central Region unit as voted on by coaches were Hutchison at fullback, Meagan Burke at goalkeeper and Brittni Walker at forward, while midfielder Stephanie Fleig was a second-team choice and midfielder Alyssa Anderson a third-team pick.

Hutchison, a junior from Edmond North High School, went on to become UCO’s first All-American since Alli Miller in 2009 by making the second-team squad. She spearheaded a defensive unit that recorded 11 shutouts and gave up just 14 goals this fall.

Hutchison, who has started 48 consecutive games for the Bronchos, also earned third-team Capital One Academic All-America honors this season.

Walker, a senior from Carl Albert High School in Midwest City, was UCO’s leading scorer for the fourth consecutive year. She topped the Bronchos in goals (eight), assists (six) and points (22) while knocking in three game-winning goals.

Walker ended her career ranked in the top five in three all-time categories at UCO — goals (fourth, 35), points (fifth, 89) and assists (tie-fifth, 19).

A senior from Lakewood, Colo., Burke transferred to UCO from Wyoming for her final season and recorded 10 shutouts between the posts. She allowed just 13 goals and made 71 saves while playing 1,963 of the team’s 2,066 minutes.

Fleig was UCO’s second-leading scorer this year, collecting six goals and four assists for 16 points. The Broken Arrow senior ended up tied for fifth on the school’s career assists list with 19.

Anderson, a senior from Allen, Texas, had six goals and one assist this fall after moving from fullback to midfielder.

UCO finished with a 16-3-3 record and was runner-up in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association en route to making its ninth appearance in the Division II national tournament since 2000, advancing to the second round.
