Seven Crusaders Receive All-OAC Honors

Seven Crusaders Receive All-OAC Honors

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Seven Capital University women's soccer players earned recognition on this year's Ohio Athletic Conference postseason awards list. Seniors Monique Hanayik (Sidney, Ohio), Becca Cartmill (Temecula, Calif.), and Claire Quinn (Coto de Caza, Calif.) headline the list of Crusader representatives as first-team honorees.

Hanayik received recognition as a standout forward last season, earning a second-team nod. With a need to fortify Capital's backline before this season, Hanayik made the switch to the defensive side. The senior showed off her versatility, making an instant impact on Capital's defense. She was still able to find ways to score as a defender, scoring a goal in three straight matches. Hanayik took 23 shots, 12 of which were on goal, while also tallying seven points and an assist. Against Kenyon College, Hanayik registered the game-winning goal.

Quinn rounded out the list of Crusader representatives on the OAC's first-team selections. Quinn improved upon a junior season in which she was named second team by scoring a career high five goals. She put together a streak of four-straight matches with a goal, the longest of any Capital player. The streak included goals against Muskingum University, Mount Union, Marietta College, and The University of John Carroll. Quinn notched 38 shots, 18 shots on goal, and a team-leading five assists. Quinn also led Capital with three game-winning goals.

Women's Soccer placed four student-athletes on the All-OAC honorable mention list, including Mary Bushee (San Marcos, Calif.), Caroline Hester (Milford, Ohio), Chloe Brown (Monclova, Ohio), and Maggie Peddicord (Delaware, Ohio).

Bushee has been one of Capital's most reliable defenders the past few seasons. She scored two goals this season, coming on Oct. 18 against Marietta and the semifinal match against Mount Union on Nov. 3. She recorded an assist on Sept. 10 against Wittenberg University.

Hester received All-OAC honorable mention recognition for the first time in her career. She provided a scoring option as a defender, recording the fifth most goals on the team with four. That number is the most she has recorded in a season. Hester also recorded 10 points and a pair of assists.

Brown, a two-time All-OAC honorable mention recipient helped fortify Capital's backline this season. She registered a goal, an assist with three points this season. Her goal came on Sept. 24 at Hanover College.

Peddicord was one of five freshmen throughout the OAC to earn All-OAC honors. The defender gave opposing offenses fits this season as she got off to a promising start to her career as a Crusader. She tallied nine shots, six on goal with an on goal percentage of .667.
