Lee's Bricker, Lanter Capture Academic All-America Honors

Thursday, December 7, 2017 - by Carman Lastoria
More accolades keep rolling in for the No. 9 Lee women's soccer team as senior standouts Summer Lanter and McKenzie Bricker were named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team on Thursday.

Lanter garnered second team honors with a 3.89 grade point average as a Nursing major. The forward was named a D2CCA and USC All-American, D2CCA and USC All-South Region and the Gulf South Conference Player of the Year.
Lanter finished her final season with the Lady Flames with 20 goals, eight of those scores coming in Lee's six playoff matches. The Soddy Daisy, Tenn. native ends her career ranked seventh in program history in goals scored.


Bricker was named to the Academic All-America Third Team. The defensive leader boasts a 3.95 GPA as an Accounting major.  Bricker was a major force in helping the stingy Lee defense allow just 0.65 goals per game. Bricker was also a force offensively in several set pieces for coach Chris Hennessey and the Lady Flames and tallied six assists and one goal.

Twenty-eight of the 33 members of the 2017 CoSIDA Academic All-America® Division II Women's Soccer teams have at least a 3.90 GPA, with 14 student-athletes maintaining a perfect 4.00 GPA. The 12 members of the first team have an average GPA of 3.93.

Lee ended the season ranked No. 9 in the final NCAA Division II Top 25 poll after advancing all the way to the Sweet 16 and capturing the program's first GSC Tournament Title. It's the Lady Flames highest season-ending ranking since joining D2 as an official member in 2015.
