USCB soccer duo named to all-conference team

USCB soccer stars Anna Gignilliat and Lexi Kaeser were named to the All-Sun Conference team announced Wednesday. 

Gignilliat, a senior forward, was named Second Team All-Conference, while Kaeser, a freshman midfielder, garnered Honorable Mention.

Gignilliat had a record-breaking senior season, as she totaled 15 goals shattered three single-season USCB records — goals (15), points (32), and game-winning goals (4). She ranks second on the Sand Sharks’ all-time list for goals (23), points (53), and shots (124), and is tied for second in game-winning goals (5) and tied for fifth in assists (7).

Highlighting Gignilliat’s senior season was earning Sun Conference Attacking Player of the Week honors earlier in the year. She also opened the season scoring in four straight contests and even broke the school record with four goals in a game against Erskine, then matched the mark against Warner.

Kaeser also had an impressive season, as she saw time at both the midfield and attacking positions. The freshman from Cincinnati, Ohio, had the second-most goals on the team with five and tied for third on the squad with 11 points.

Kaeser started her career quickly, as she scored in her first career game (versus South Carolina State). Kaeser collected her first career multi-goal game, as she recorded two goals at Florida Memorial. She followed that performance with a goal versus Thomas for her first career multiple-game stretch with goals scored.

The Sand Sharks finished the season with a 9-8 overall mark and a 5-5 record in conference play, missing the six-team Sun Conference Tournament by one point.
