Three women's soccer YellowJackets Earn All-ASC Recognition

LONGVIEW, November 14, 2013-- Three members of the LeTourneau University women’s soccer team were recognized by the American Southwest Conference for postseason honors, the ASC Office announced Wednesday, Nov. 14, after a vote of the league’s head coaches.

Freshman midfielder Stephanie Vana (La Verne, Calif.) was a technical presence on the field for the YellowJackets in 2013. She played multiple positions for LeTourneau, seeing action as a center midfielder or a forward. Vana was a significant offensive threat for the YellowJackets with four goals and two assists to her credit.

Junior Katy Wallace (Honolulu, Hawaii), who will graduate in December, served as the YellowJackets captain in 2013. Wallace anchored the back line playing as a center back in a back three. As the captain, she exhibited great leadership and direction to a team that was playing numbers down throughout the season. Not reflected in statistics was the discipline that Wallace exhibited to her teammates, especially in the back and as they were playing a very difficult formation.

Sophomore Kaitlynn Conway (Damascus, Md.) was a tireless and dynamic presence on the field for the YellowJackets, playing and starting every minute of the 19-game season. She provided exemplary service and combination play for LeTourneau. Conway was the designated server from the corner for the YellowJackets, who finished the season with 59 corner kicks, despite playing 3 players down for the majority of the season.

LeTourneau University head coach Jamie Lindvall and his staff was proud of his honorees. “Rachel (Lindvall, assistant coach) and I are so proud of our team for the remarkable character that they have shown this season. Stephanie (Vana), Katy (Wallace) and Kaitlynn (Conway) have been brilliant and I’m really glad for them to get this recognition from the other coaches in the ASC. Each of these women has shown an amazing buy in to what our program is all about and I can honestly say that it has been a privilege to get to coach them.”
