2018 CCAA Women’s Soccer All-Canadians

2018 CCAA Women’s Soccer All-Canadians

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) is proud to announce the 2018 CCAA Women’s Soccer All-Canadians.

The student-athletes, who are selected by their conference based on performance and contribution to the sport and their team, were honoured at a banquet during the 2018 CCAA Women’s Soccer National Championship, hosted by Douglas College in Coquitlam, BC.

Here are the 2018 Women’s Soccer All-Canadians:

Chloe Gummer

 

Samantha Kell

 

VIU Mariners

 

Douglas Royals

The PACWEST Player of the Year led VIU to a 5-2-5 record and first-place finish in the conference. Gummer, a third-year striker, tied for the PACWEST lead in goals with six. She is always positive, trains hard and is very well respected by her teammates. Her strengths are her pace, athleticism and the ability to finish. Gummer, a recipient of the 2017-18 CCAA National Scholar award, is always eager to get involved in community events and youth clinics.

 

The fifth-year midfielder wraps up her career with a second straight CCAA All-Canadian nod. Kell led Douglas to a second-place finish in the PACWEST with a 5-4-3 record. The Royals captain has embraced her leadership role and was involved in several campus events and activities as a lead up to CCAA Nationals. For the second year in a row, Kell and her teammates wore rainbow laces to show their support for an inclusive environment within sport.



Kaily Mohn

 

Deanna Kuan

 

NAIT Ooks

 

SAIT Trojans

Mohn, the top scorer in the conference with 15 goals, led the Ooks to a first-place finish in the ACAC North Division with a perfect 10-0 record. The fourth-year midfielder kicked off the season with three straight hat-tricks. Mohn is a leader at NAIT; she has an incredible work ethic and is the most determined player on the team. She also volunteers as a community coach with the Edmonton Scottish United soccer program.

 

The ACAC Player of the Year led SAIT to a 12-0 record and first-place finish in the ACAC South Division. Led by the third-year midfielder, the Trojans allowed a league-low three goals against. Defensively, she controls the game by stifling the opposing team’s attack, while turning it into chances for her own side. Kuan, who is also a two-time CCAA Academic All-Canadian, is the epitome of ‘practice makes perfect’ and has a work ethic that is second to none.


Jade Kovacevic

 

Zoe Derkach

 

Fanshawe Falcons

 

Sheridan Bruins

The OCAA Player of the Year led the conference with an incredible 30 goals. Kovacevic, now a three-time CCAA All-Canadian, led the Falcons to a perfect 10-0 record and first-place finish in the OCAA West Division. Kovacevic has the ability to motivate and drive others around her to perform and develop at a higher level. The Falcons captain is a senior figure within the team that draws players to trust her and confide in her.

 

Derkach led the Bruins to an 8-2 record and second-place finish in the OCAA Central Division. The first-year striker was among the conference leaders with 11 goals. Derkach has a vicious shot and can punish keepers from the top of the box, while her speed frequently puts her in behind defenders. Derkach quickly established herself as team leader and a “go to” teammate to discuss on-field tactics and strategy as well as classroom study habits.


Karina Lemire

 

Ariane Langlois

 

Champlain Cavaliers

 

Élans de Garneau

The RSEQ Player of the Year led Champlain to a 7-2-1 record and second-place finish in the always competitive RSEQ. Lemire’s ability to control the ball and playmaking skills are her strengths. The third-year midfielder and Cavaliers captain continues to be a true leader on the pitch. A solid student, Lemire also contributes to the team’s off-field and community activities and she’s involved in community soccer as a player and official.

 

Langlois led the Élans to a 9-0-1 record and first-overall finish in the RSEQ. The third-year defender also suits up for the Dynamo de Quebec in the province’s premier league. Langlois has excellent vision and easily finds her teammates in front of the net. She is very difficult to beat one-on-one and almost always wins duels. Langlois is extremely versatile; she can be used on the attack or strictly defensively depending on the score and pace of the game.


Nikita McCartney

 

Sabrina Molnar

 

St. Thomas Tommies

 

Holland Hurricanes

The ACAA Player of the Year led St. Thomas to a 10-0-2 record and first-place finish in the conference. McCartney, a second-year striker/centre midfielder, led the ACAA with 15 goals as well as eight game-winning goals. She uses her quickness and intelligence to be in the right spot to receive passes from her teammates. McCartney is a fierce competitor and a leader on and off the field for the Tommies.

 

Molnar led the Hurricanes to an 8-3-1 record and third-place finish in the ACAA. She played on the wing, in the midfield and as striker for Holland this season. Molnar is a playmaker with speed and her defensive ability often goes without recognition. She is the team’s role model for dedication and commitment and her fiercely competitive spirit is only matched by her focus in a team-first attitude.
