Erin Casey Jamie Hreniuk Carolyn Warner


Senior defender Erin Casey (Hatfield, Pa./Gwynedd Mercy Academy), sophomore forward Jamie Hreniuk (West Caldwell, N.J./James Caldwell) and senior defender Carolyn Warner (Morris Plains, N.J./Parsippany Hills) of The University of Scranton women's soccer team have been honored as three of the top players in the region.

Casey and Hreniuk earned Middle Atlantic Region second-team honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) while Warner snagged third-team honors. Their selection marks the first time since 2013 that the team has had three players earn all-region honors.

Casey earns all-region honors for the second time in her career, having been named to the third team as a sophomore in 2013. This season, she helped the Royals finish 17-1-2 and hold opponents to 0.55 goals per match and post 14 shutouts. She was a first-team all-Landmark Conference selection and earned second-team Academic All-American honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America earlier this season.

Hreniuk had a breakout season en route to being named all-region for the first time. She moved to forward early in the season and finished with 13 goals and three assists for a team-high 29 points, and she scored in both of the Royals' victories in the Landmark Conference playoffs. Hreniuk was named Landmark Conference co-Offensive Player of the Year and a first-team selection after playing in eight matches off the bench in her freshman season.

Warner was the Landmark Conference Defensive Player of the Year after shining on both ends of the field. She teamed with Casey as the team's defensive anchors at center back, helping the Royals hold opponents to just 9.8 shots per game and only 4.0 on goal. She was also an offensive force on set pieces, finishing the season with seven goals and an assist for 15 points, and two of her goals were game-winners.

The selections of Casey, Hreniuk and Warner to the NSCAA all-region teams brings Scranton's total all-region honorees to 63 dating back to 1984.
