WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Nov. 1, 2012 -- Four James Madison women's soccer players have received postseason honors from the Colonial Athletic Association.

Junior defender Becky Sparks (Laurel Springs, N.J./Paul VI) was selected to the All-CAA Second Team, and senior midfielder Katie Menzie (Chantilly, Va./Chantilly) and junior forward Lauren Wilson (Coatesville, Pa./Downingtown) were named to the All-CAA Third Team.  Freshman defender Elissa Halik (Spring, Texas/Klein Collins) was a CAA All-Rookie Team honoree.

Sparks and Wilson both received All-CAA honors for the second year in a row, while Menzie won All-CAA recognition for the first time.

Wilson was JMU's leading scorer with eight goals, while Menzie ranked tied second on the team in assists with three.  Sparks and Halik were part of a Dukes' defense that recorded five shutouts and a 1.46 goals-against average, and Sparks contributed three assists this season.

The awards, selected in voting by the league’s head coaches, were announced Thursday night on the eve of the semifinals of the CAA Championship in Williamsburg, Va.

William & Mary senior midfielder Mallory Schaffer was selected as the CAA Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.
