GAFFNEY, S.C. – The Division II Conference Commissioner's Association (D2CCA) released its Women's Soccer All-Southeast Region Team Tuesday, with Georgia College senior defender Unnbjorg Omarsdottir (Reykjavik, Iceland) earning a spot on the second team.

A two-time All-Peach Belt Conference selection, Omarsdottir was a senior leader for a defense that allowed just a 0.86 GAA and posted 12 shutouts this season. She also got heavily involved in the scoring, posting four goals and three assists. The team was 3-1-1 in matches where she tallied points.

Omarsdottir is the fifth D2CCA All-Region selection in school history; the honor formerly sponsored by Daktronics. Defender Morgan Cobb was a two-time selection in 2007 and 2009, with Mary Rob Plunkett joining her in 2009. Amanda Bartholomew (Peachtree City, Georgia) won the honor just a season ago.

The Bobcats wrapped up another great season in 2018, posting back-to-back double-digit win seasons for the second time in program history. Georgia College also had a Cinderella postseason run, getting to the championship match and falling in penalty kicks to national No. 3 Columbus State University. Omarsdottir, Bartholomew and Ashlee Graham (Decatur, Georgia) each earned All-PBC status, with Graham taking the PBC Elite-15 Award as well.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup and the 2017 PBC Sportsmanship Institution of the Year, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
