Fisher named to all-region team
The awards keep piling up for Minot State University soccer player Zoe Fisher.
The sophomore forward was selected to the 13-member all-Central Region first team Monday.
Fisher, a native of Cambridgeshire, England, set a school record with 11 goals this season. She was named first-team all-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and the most valuable player of the NSIC tournament after leading the Beavers to the championship.
The Beavers finished 15-4-3 in their first season in NCAA Division II and qualified for the national tournament.
Five other NSIC players - all of them from regular-season champion Minnesota State-Mankato - were named to the all-region first team. Mankato senior Nicole Dooher was named player of the year.
