Groom and Streight Named to All-Region Team

Posted: Updated:

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Texas A&M had two players named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) NCAA Division I All-South Region team, announced earlier this week.

Juniors Shea Groom and Meghan Streight were named to the NSCAA All-South Region First Team.

The Aggies were one of four squads to have multiple players named to the 11-player First Team, joining Florida (3), Ole Miss (2) and South Alabama (2). The South Region encompasses all the members of the Southeastern Conference, Sun Belt Conference and Ohio Valley Conference.

Groom was named a first-team midfielder after earning first-team recognition as a forward in 2012. The Liberty, Mo.-product led the Aggies with 35 points on the year with 14 goals and seven assists. She earned All-SEC First Team status and was named to the All-Tournament Team as A&M won its first-ever SEC Tournament title in November.

Streight, who earned NSCAA/Continental Tire All-America Third Team recognition as a midfielder last season along with All-South Region First Team status, was tabbed a first-team defender. The McKinney, Texas product tallied six points on the season, including two goals. She helped the squad post eight shutouts and register a 0.98 goals-against average. This season, Streight repeated as a member of both the All-SEC First Team and the SEC All-Tournament Team.

The Aggies finished the regular-season ranked No. 13 in the NSCAA Coaches Poll. A&M posted an 18-5-2 record for the year and claimed their first-ever SEC regular-season title with a 9-2-0 league ledger. The Maroon and White appeared in their 19th consecutive NCAA Division I Championship, advanced to the Second Round for the 16th consecutive year and appeared in the Sweet 16 for the 12th time in program history.
