Northwestern State places pair of All-Louisiana Team


Northwestern State placed a pair of forwards on the 2018 Louisiana Sports Writers Association All-Louisiana Collegiate Women’s Soccer Teams, which were released by the LSWA on Sunday.

Seniors Brittany Caserma and April Trowbridge were selected to the first team by a panel of women’s soccer sports information directors from around the state.

Caserma makes her second straight appearance on the All-Louisiana First Team after producing eight goals and two assists.

The Murrieta, California, native finished her career ranked fifth in NSU history with 24 goals and ninth with 52 points.

Trowbridge earned her first nod on the All-Louisiana team after her 13 goals led the Southland Conference in the regular season and ranked 13th nationally.

Her seven assists ranked second in the SLC.

Despite playing for just three seasons, Trowbridge’s 22 career goals (eighth), 15 career assists (fifth) and 59 career points (fourth) are among the best in Lady Demon lore.

NSU has been represented on the All-Louisiana team by at least one player every season since 2015, earning multiple bids for the second time in that span.

Caserma and Trowbridge were also the only SLC members on the first team.

The pair led NSU back to the SLC Tournament as an eight seed and finished with a 10-10 record in the first season under co-head coaches Jess and Anna Jobe.
