Locastro given first team honors for 2016 season

Mary Ruth Locastro was voted onto the first team All-Ohio Valley Conference for women’s soccer in 2016. The senior defender started 20 games for APSU and was a crucial part of the back line that allowed only six goals through conference play.

Locastro tallied over 1,800 minutes for the Lady Govs and even scored in the teams 2-0 win over Alabama A&M on Senior Day.

Among other players with end of the year accolades were junior forward Kirstin Robertson, named to the 2nd team All-OVC, and redshirt-freshman Pamela Penaloza, named to the All-Newcomer team.

Robertson found the net 11 times while linking up for five assist and Penaloza had a pair of goals and assist on the year.

Voting was done by OVC coaches and OVC Sports Information Directors.
