Four Olds College Broncos soccer players have been named to Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) all conference teams and one was also named rookie of the year.
Forward Felicia Rodney, defender and team captain Katharina Oeltermann as well as goaltender Julianna "Jewels" Hallock were named to the women's ACAC South all conference team. Hallock was also chosen the ACAC women's soccer rookie of the year. In addition, striker Fabian Gromenida was named to the men's ACAC South all conference team.
Oeltermann had a great year for Olds College, where she was strong on both offence and defence.
She finished the season second on the Broncos with seven goals, which also tied her for 16th in the ACAC and sixth in the ACAC South.
Oeltermann also had two assists for 16 points. She also took 23 shots and had two game winning goals (seventh in the ACAC and fourth in the ACAC South). She was 2-for-2 on penalty kicks. This is an amazing feat for a defender.
Hallock ranked highly in several statistical categories.
Despite missing the final two games of the season due to injury, she ranked second in the ACAC in save percentage with a .872 (top in ACAC South), sixth in goals against average with 1.50 (third in ACAC South), third in saves with 102 (2nd in South) and third with six wins (tops in the South).
Hallock had three shutouts this season (sixth in ACAC and third in ACAC South). She was also ranked fifth with 900 minutes played (top in ACAC South).
“Her solid work ethic, technique and leadership have been a major asset to our team," Broncos soccer head coach Niels Slotboom said. "Julianna has shown a lot of growth on and off the field this season and we are proud to have her as part of our Broncos family."
Rodney had an amazing year as a second-year forward for Olds College, ranking highly in several statistical categories.
Despite missing two games midseason due to injury, Rodney ranked third in the ACAC in goals with 15 (tops in ACAC South), fourth in points with 32 (top in ACAC South), first in shots with 63 and seventh with two game-winning goals (fourth in ACAC South).
As was reported earlier, a highlight of the year for Rodney was an ACAC record-tying seven goals against Red Deer College on Oct. 13.
Gromenida had a great year as a fifth-year forward for Olds College, ranking highly in several statistical categories.
He ranked third in the ACAC with 12 goals (first in the ACAC South), fourth in the ACAC with 28 points (tops in the South), and led the ACAC in game-winning goals and shots with four and 61 respectively. He also ranked ninth in the ACAC with four assists (third in the ACAC South).
