Spartanburg, S.C. – USC Upstate junior defender Alexa Hone was selected to the College Sports Madness preseason All-Atlantic Sun second team, the publication announced Wednesday.
Hone started all 18 games last season for the Spartans and was instrumental in helping Upstate post five shutouts, which was the most in a season since the 2010 squad also featured five shutouts.
“I am honored and blessed to be recognized because I know there are so many deserving candidates in our conference,” Hone said. “I am so excited about our team and can’t wait for the season to begin. As soon as we stepped onto the field I could tell there was something special about these girls. We like to call ourselves a family and that’s something we will act upon all year long. Being a part of a team that’s so hard working and motivated makes me excited to make a statement in our conference this season.”
