Clemson, S.C. – The Clemson women’s soccer team picked up three All-Atlantic Region selections following the 2020-21 season, United Soccer Coaches announced on Tuesday. Megan Bornkamp, Makenna Morris and Maliah Morris occupy three of the 30 spots among the Atlantic Region’s First and Second teams and make up three of nine underclassmen among the two teams.
All-Atlantic First Team
Bornkamp, who led all Atlantic Coast Conference freshmen for goals this season, contributed 17 points for the Tigers throughout the split season by way of a team-leading eight goals and an assist, including a team-high four game-winning-goals. Playing and starting in all 19 games, Bornkamp recorded just shy of 1,700 minutes of action, a mark that ranks first among the team. The midfielder native to Mooresville, N.C. is one of just two freshmen earning First Team honors, joining Lia Godfrey of Virginia.
All-Atlantic Second Team
Freshman defender Makenna Morris and her sister, sophomore forward Maliah Morris, earned Second Team honors after high-caliber play on both sides of the ball. Makenna, in just her first year on campus, proved to be one of the most sound defenders in the league after aiding the Clemson backline to six shutouts throughout the regular season. Playing nearly 1,400 minutes during her freshman campaign, Makenna added an assist to her career log. Maliah recorded six goals and a team-high five assists en route to Second Team honors. The Germantown, Md. native held a three-way tie of the team lead with 17 points across her nearly 1,500 minutes of action.
United Soccer Coaches will announce this year’s All-America honors on Thursday, May 13. All-Region and All-America teams are selected through voting by member coaches in their respective divisions.
