Lyco’s Lazarich becomes first all-region women’s soccer player

A breakthrough season for junior forward Jordan Lazarich continued when the Lycoming College women’s soccer player became the first in program history to earn National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors.

Lazarich, a second-team All-MAC Commonwealth honoree, earned a spot on the third team in the region, which also includes the MAC Freedom, Centennial, North East Athletic, Landmark and Colonial States Athletic Conferences.

Lazarich finished her junior year with 19 goals and 40 points. The 5-foot-7 forward won two MAC Commonwealth Offensive Player of the Week honors during the season, scoring two goals and an assist in a 3-2 win over Lebanon Valley to earn it on Oct. 24, and posting back-to-back hat tricks against Summit and Pitt-Bradford, on Sept. 6, a feat that also helped her earn the NSCAA National Division III Player of the Week award.

She made an impact on a national level, leading the nation in goals heading into the month of October. She ended the year 20th in Division III and second in the MAC Commonwealth with 19 goals, while her six game-winning goals were 19th in the nation. She also finished third in the MAC Commonwealth with 2.11 points per game.
