Iowa soccer’s Cloe Lacasse, Melanie Pickert, and Alex Melin have been named National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Continental Tire NCAA Division I All-Great Lakes Region honorees, the coaches’ association announced Wednesday. Juniors Lacasse and Pickert were named to the second team while Melin — a senior — earned a third-team spot.

It’s the first time in program history in which Iowa has had three all-region honorees in a single season.

For Lacasse, the honor is the second-straight season in which she has been named to the second team. The honor is the first time for both Pickert and Melin.

“Any individual award is a reflection of how the team has done, and the team had a great year,” Iowa head coach Ron Rainey said in a press release. “For these individuals, it is awesome to get recognized by the coaches in the region and the coaches we played against. I am excited for the team and for Cloe, Mel, and Alex.”
