Charity Shipman, a senior from Lindale, was named Second Team West Region after leading the team with 10 goals and 23 total points scored. Shipman started every game for the Patriots this season, finishing her career 18 goals.
Amanda Weaver, a senior from Arlington was named Second Team West Region after leading a defensive unit that allowed just 15 goals on the season (0.75 per game). During her career at UT Tyler, Weaver was named All-ASC twice and a member of the All-Academic team for three seasons.
