Women's soccer signee Hein earns All-America honorable mention
GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNC Greensboro women's soccer signee Lauren Hein has earned ESPN RISE Winter Girls' Soccer All-America honorable mention honors, the organization announced this week.
Hein, a 5-8 forward/midfielder, will join the Spartans as a freshman for the 2009 season. The Torrance, Calif., native was named the California Interscholastic Federation Player of the Year as a prep senior, helping South Torrance High School to the CIF Southern Section Division V tournament title with game-winning goals in the semifinals and overtime.
The first-team all-league, all-CIF and all-area selection led the league in scoring three times and scored 34 goals a senior.
ESPN RISE named first, second and third teams as well as an honorable mention list. Hein was the only Southern Conference recruit among those honored. The Spartans have won the last three regular-season SoCon crowns.
