Buena Vista, Va. -- The Virginia Sports Information Directors named four University of Lynchburg women's soccer players to its 2018 College Division All-State teams, the organization announced Wednesday.

Three Hornets -- senior midfielder Kennedy Jakubek (Leesburg, Va.), senior forward Caitlin Mertens (Succasunna, N.J.), and senior defender Katie Waring (Chester, Va.) -- took first-team honors, while senior forward Hannah Olds (Wilmington, N.C.) was Lynchburg's lone second-teamer.

Jakubek moves up to the first team after earning a second-team accolade as a junior. She ranked sixth in Division III with 15 assists for the Hornets while adding nine goals. She was also a first-team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference and All-South Region selection.

Mertens, the ODAC's player of the year, earned her third-career All-State honor and her second nod to the first team. The second-team All-American and first-team all-region and All-ODAC pick ranked second in Division III with 29 goals, a mark that also checked in second in Lynchburg's single-season record book. She also made 10 assists; her 68 points also ranked second in the country. Mertens scored 10 game-winning goals, checking in third on the D3 leaderboard in that category.

Waring, a first-time All-State honoree, stepped up to become one of the finest defenders in Division III as a third-team All-American and first-team all-region and all-conference player. She moved to center back from the wing before the season and anchored a defense that allowed just 18 goals in 26 matches, ranking 43rd in Division III in goals-against average. She also added a goal and two assists.

Olds returns to the All-State teams after earning a first-team selection as a sophomore in 2015. The fifth-year scored 17 goals and made two assists in her final collegiate season. She was a second-team All-ODAC and ODAC All-Tournament Team selection.

Lynchburg's women won the program's 16th Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship in 2018 and advanced to the quarterfinal round of the national tournament for the fifth time in program history. The team finished with a 20-3-3 record, reaching the 20-win mark for the sixth time in the past seven seasons.

Christopher Newport midfielder Gabby Gillis earned the All-State player of the year title for the second-straight season, while Captains mentor Dan Weiler repeated as coach of the year.

Bridgewater standout Hanna Randolph took the Commonwealth's rookie of the year honor.

Lynchburg has earned four or more spots on the All-State teams each of the past 11 seasons.
