Dumaine, McCulloch tabbed academic all-region

Senior soccer players Kaitlin McCulloch (Florence, Ky.) and Jennie Dumaine (California, Ky.) have earned academic all-region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

McCulloch, a biology major, was selected to the NSCAA’s North/Central Region first team. Dumaine, a double major in biology and Spanish, earned honorable mention.

This season, McCulloch became the first player in Hanover history to earn all-American honors. The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s two-time defensive player of the year, she helped the Panthers' defense post 10 shutouts in 19 matches and match the 2009 team’s school record by allowing only 10 goals.

In addition to the honor for her work in the classroom, Dumaine was named to the Heartland Conference’s all-sportsmanship team.

A midfielder, she netted a career-high four goals and also had one assist during the season.

Hanover finished with a 13-4-2 overall mark. The Panthers placed third in the HCAC standings with a 6-2-1 record.
