The Menlo College women's soccer team made its mark on the California Pacific Conference postseason awards list, placing three individuals on the All-Cal Pac First Team, and earning two of the four most coveted conference honors, as well. Junior Natalie Ingram was tabbed as the Newcomer of the Year, sophomore Kayla Cisneroz earned Defender of the Year recognition, and the two were accompanied by senior Erika Savela on the all-conference First Team.

Ingram led the Cal Pac in two of the three major offensive categories. Her 16 goals and 37 points topped the conference, while her five assists were good enough for second overall. It was the second straight year in which Menlo has hoisted the Newcomer of the Year accolade.

Cisneroz makes it three consecutive years that an Oak has taken home the Defender of the Year Award. She served as the anchor of Menlo's stingy defense, one that allowed more than two goals in a match just twice over the course of the 17-game regular season, shutting opponents out six times as well.

Senior Erika Savela rounds out the Menlo trio of first-team selections after making an immediate splash in her first year with the team. She finished tied for second in the conference with five assists, tied for sixth in points with 23, and ended in seventh with nine goals.

Menlo enters the inaugural California Pacific Conference Postseason Tournament as the No. 3 seed, preparing to take on William Jessup for the third time this year on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
