Kaitlyn Hummel named NCCAA All-American
GREENVILLE, — The National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) has named Bob Jones University Bruins women’s soccer player Kaitlyn Hummel to the All-American Teams for Division II.
“We have been blessed once again to be represented by some truly remarkable women,” Bruins Head Coach Chris Carmichael said. “Hummel has been a key part of our program’s success and we’re proud to see each one honored as some of the best players in the nation. They each have worked so hard and they play for God’s glory.”
Katie Hummel, a resident of Florence, earned 2nd Team All-American for the Bruins. Hummel played nearly every minute for the Bruins this season while serving as one of the captains on the team. Hummel also earned All-American honors last spring in Track where she finished 3rd overall at the National Championships in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
“She is one of the hardest workers we’ve had in our program,” Coach Carmichael said. “She continues to push herself and has evolved into an elite-level athlete during her career here.”
The Lady Bruins battled through their toughest schedule to date to finish 11-9-1 on the season. The team battled back from a 1-0 deficit in the 2nd half of the NCCAA DII South Region Championship to win the match 2-1. After earning the #1 seed for the national tournament, the Bruins defeated #4 Randall University in the semifinal before edging #3 Providence University College 1-0 in overtime to capture their 3rd straight NCCAA DII National Championship.
Bob Jones University is a Division II institution in the South Region.
