ALAMOSA, Colo. - BSU juniors Ashlee Ellefsen and Alysha Domiano were named to the 2009 Daktronics All-Central Region Women's Soccer Second Team for their efforts in the 2009 season.
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).
Ellefsen was named All-NSIC First Team and was awarded NSIC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 27 - Nov. 1.
On the season, Ellefsen scored 13 goals and notched seven assists for a total of 33 points. It was her best single-season performance at BSU after scoring 16 points (7G, 2A) her freshman year and 31 points (12G, 7A) in her sophomore season.
Domiano was earlier named All-NSIC Second Team. Domiano was named honorable mention in both her freshman and sophomore years. She was a crucial part of the Beaver backline all year.
