Men's & Women's Soccer Places Four on Scholar All-Region Teams

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Berry College men's and women's soccer teams placed a total of four student-athletes on the 2018 United Soccer Coaches Division III Scholar All-South Region Teams, the organization announced last week.

From the women's team, seniors Megan Radosta and Samantha Schoppy earned recognition. Caleb Ford and Carson Oakes received honors for the men's team.

Radosta, a senior defender from Sandy Springs, Ga., earned her second-straight All-SAA nod and first spot on the All-Conference first team. She passed one assist this season, helping the Vikings to a 9-4-4 overall record for the 2018 season. That mark is Berry's best overall record since 2015 and the Vikings' 4-1-2 finish in SAA play is the best since the 2014 season. She has a 3.79 GPA in education, earning first-team Scholar All-Region honors.

Schoppy, a senior midfielder from Canton, Ga., earned her fourth straight All-SAA honor also scoring four goals this season. She boasts a 3.58 GPA in accounting, earning second-team recognition.
