KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The United Soccer Coaches recently announced the NCAA Division II Women's Soccer All-Region Teams, with three Georgia College players taking spots on the Second and Third Teams.
Senior Amanda Bartholomew (Peachtree City, Georgia) takes a spot on the All-Southeast Region Second Team, her second All-Region selection with the coaches association. Bartholomew scored eight goals and had four assists in 13 games this season, before a career-ending injury.
Senior Unnbjorg Omarsdottir (Reykjavik, Iceland) and sophomore Kai Jeffries (Lawrenceville, Georgia) take spots on the Third Team. Omarsdottir was named to the D2CCA All-Region earlier this season, becoming the fifth selection in history. The senior had four goals and three assists in 21 games played this season, finishing out her career in style. Jeffries added two assists this season and started 20 of 21 games played.
Bartholomew, Omarsdottir, and Jeffries make 12 all-time All-Region selections in GC Soccer's program history, eight of which have come under Coach Hope Clark.
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 Peach Belt Conference championship match and falling in penalty kicks to national No. 3 Columbus State University.
