A pair of SEMO Soccer student-athletes earned All-Ohio Valley Conference honors last week. Sophomore midfielder Esmie Gonzales was named First-Team All-Ohio Valley Conference and freshman forward Lexi Grote claimed All-Newcomer accolades, the league announced during its pre-tournament banquet.
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Gonzales ranks fourth in the OVC with eight goals this season. She also rates among the top five in the conference in shots, shots per game, points and game-winning goals. Gonzales's six goals in OVC play are a league-high.
