Four members of the Auburn Soccer team were named to the All-South Region Team, announced by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America on Tuesday. Seniors Kiana Clarke, Brooke Ramsier, Casie Ramsier, and junior Kristen Dodson were recognized for their performances during the 2016 season for Auburn Soccer, which saw the team finish with a 17-7 record, and a trip to the Elite 8, which was a first in program history. Casie Ramsier was a key part of Auburn’s success, earning her first team honors. Ramsier finished second on the team with 31 total points. Her name will forever be enshrined in the Auburn record books, as she ends her career with 37 goals, 89 starts, 94 points, and 20 assists. Clarke and Dodson represent Auburn on the All-South Region 2nd team. Dodson was responsible for 13 goals and 12 assists, which led to a season-best 38 points. She was also in the top three in the SEC in both goals and assists. Auburn Soccer’s defense was among one of the nation’s best, allowing 1.08 goals per game, and produced seven shutouts. Kiana Clarke was a key part in that success. Clarke played in every match this season and recorded 2,168 minutes out of a possible 2,177. Finally, Brooke Ramsier rounds out the selections as a third teamer. She tied for the team lead with 12 assists and was third in goals with eight, including five from set pieces. Ramsier ends her Auburn career with 26 assists, which is fourth most in program history, and 58 total points.
