CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Seniors Lauren Mann and Lizzy Nichols and junior Katherine Sheeleigh of the Ivy League champion Harvard women's soccer team have been named to the NEWISA All-New England Team.  Mann and Sheeleigh garnered selections to the first team, while Nichols grabbed a spot on the second team.

Mann, a goalkeeper from Encinitas, Calif., was also recently selected to participate in the NEWISA Senior Bowl.  Mann was tabbed to her fourth All-Ivy League team this fall, as she was named to the second team. She posted a 9-7-1 overall record and had three shutouts, while owning a 1.34 goals-against average. Mann completed her career ranked third in program history with 290 saves.

Sheeleigh, an Academic All-Ivy League choice, is a nominee for Soccer News Net Player of the Year.  A native of New Vernon, N.J., Sheeleigh, a forward, was honored on the All-Ivy League first team for the third straight season.  She led Harvard offensively with 21 points, including a team-best eight goals, four of which counted as game-winning tallies. Sheeleigh also stood third in the Ivy League in points and fourth in goals.

Nichols, who hails from Princeton, N.J., joined Mann as a selection to the NEWISA Senior Bowl.  A finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, Nichols was honored on the All-Ivy League team for the fourth time, earning a nod to the second team for her effort this fall. Nichols also succeeded outside of the classroom, as she was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District first team, as well as the Academic All-Ivy League team.
