Fort Wayne, Ind. – The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) has released the postseason honors for women’s soccer and Indiana Tech had three players receive First Team All-Conference recognition, including freshman Tori Singstock (Southgate, MI/Southgate Anderson) who was also named the league’s Offensive Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year.
Joining Singstock on the First Team were Jordan Roell (Guilford, IN/East Central) and Natalie Zimmerman (Berkley, MI/Berkley).
The trio helped lead the Warriors to one of the best seasons in program history, finishing the regular season in second place in the conference standings with a 6-2 mark in WHAC play and a 14-4 overall record.
As a freshman, Singstock led the league in goals with 18 in her rookie campaign, which ranked 12th in the NAIA. She also added three assists to compile a total of 39 points, good enough for second in the WHAC. Singstock had five multi-goal games this season, including three in her collegiate debut against the University of Saint Francis and four against Marygrove College.
Roell had a breakout year in 2012. The junior goalkeeper recorded career-bests in goals against average (1.35), saves (82), and save percentage (.796). Roell also posted two shutouts so far this season.
Zimmerman earned her third piece of WHAC hardware after taking home Third Team honors as a freshman and Honorable Mention as a sophomore. The junior forward exploded offensively this season scoring 11 goals and dishing out eight assists to finish top-5 in the conference in both categories.
Named to the Honorable Mention All-Conference Team was Megan Perrey (Avon, IN/Avon). Perrey had an outstanding freshman season scoring 15 times and handing out three assists.
