Six Norse named first team All-GLVC

Northern Kentucky University had 19 athletes from the fall sports teams earn All-Great Lakes Valley Conference honors, including six All-GLVC first team selections.

Leading the group was Amanda Mason, a senior midfielder for the women’s soccer team.
Mason was named the GLVC Offensive Player of the Year. Mason ranks third nationally in points per game (2.39) and is tied for sixth in total assists (13).
Joining Mason on the women’s soccer first team are sophomore defender Allison Ponzer and senior defender Laura Painter.

Senior defender Tommy Barrick made the first team for men’s soccer. Barrick has been an anchor for the team on defense this season.

The women’s volleyball team had two first-team selections in junior setter Jenna Schreiver and senior middle hitter Kim Nemcek. Schreiver leads the GLVC and is fifth in the NCAA in assists per set (11.67). Nemcek was No. 4 in the nation in hitting percentage before suffering a season-ending injury last month.
