Belhaven University women's soccer player Anna Crane was recently named Third Team All-American Southwest Conference (ASC). The Pearl High School graduate was one of seven Blazer women's soccer players to earn individual recognition from the conference.
Crane, who transferred from Jones College, had a great debut season in Jackson. The junior forward started all 15 games in which she appeared. She tied for the team lead with eight goals on 34 shots. Five of her goals were game-winners, and she had multi-goal games against both Austin College and Centenary College. She also tallied an assist this season, giving her 17 points.
The Blazers finished the year with a 10-8-1 record and qualified for the ASC Tournament for the third consecutive season. Crane is one of seven juniors who will return and provide leadership to the team next season.
