KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- BSU juniors Ashlee Ellefsen and Alysha Domiano were named to the 2009 NSCAA Women's NCAA Division II All-Central Region Third Team for their efforts in the 2009 season that saw the Beavers go 11-6-2 (7-5-1 NSIC).
Both Ellefsen and Domiano were named to the 2009 Daktronics All-Central Region Women's Soccer Second Team and both were honored with All-NSIC Team selections this year, Ellefsen (First Team) and Domiano (Second Team).
Ellefsen had a standout junior year. She broke the school records for most career points (80), most career goals (32), and game-winning goals (11). She also tied the school record for most assists in a season (7).
