Mountain Hawks Hand Out Team Awards
BETHLEHEM, PA. – The Lehigh women’s soccer team announced the program’s three postseason team awards Thursday, which went to three seniors. Ally Friedman, Grace Forsyth, and Mackenzie Anton were all recognized.
Friedman was named the Mountain Hawks Outstanding Athlete. Friedman had been a major pillar in the line-up from their first year and continued to anchor Lehigh’s line of defense, who finished fourth in the Patriot League with goals against the average (0.60). The Mountain Hawks allowed only four goals in six games, including three overtime competitions and three shutouts. Friedman started all six games and added five shots, two on goal – three of the shots that came in the season finale against Loyola.
Meanwhile, Forsyth received the Scholar-Athlete Award for her success in the classroom and on the field. Academically, Forsyth has an excellent cumulative grade point average of 3.90 in Molecular Biology, taking a place on the Dean’s List and a place on the Patriot League Academic Roll of Honor every semester, while posting a perfect 4.0 GPA this fall. On the field, Forsyth started all six games forward and recorded four shots, two on goal.
Anton received the Coaches Award, given to players who are selfless in their actions and who may go unnoticed by others. Anton started in all five games she played in 2021 as an integral part of Lehigh’s strong defense. In their five games played, the Mountain Hawks only allowed three goals with five exclusions.
The Mountain Hawks finished the season 1-2-3, beating American (1-0) while tying Bucknell (0-0), Colgate (1-1) and Loyola (0-0).
