FRISCO, Texas -- Lamar's Lisa Hance and Lisa Topping were both listed among the members of the 2009 Women's Soccer All-Southland Conference Teams as announced by the league office Tuesday.

Both student-athletes were named to the Honorable Mention list. They joined former standout Aline Pugliesi as the only all-conference honorees in program history. Pugliesi also nabbed honorable mention plaudits following the 2008 campaign.

Hance, a sophomore forward in her second year at Lamar finished the season as the team leader in goals, assists and points, with four, five and 13 respectively. The Grapevine, Texas native had a game-winning goal in the 3-0 win over Central Arkansas and all three assists in last weekend's 3-2 overtime win at Nicholls - the first-ever golden goal for the Lady Cardinals.

She ranks 11th in the SLC in assists, however, all five came in league play which is tied for the most in the conference. She was also seventh in shots with a team-high 46.

Topping, a freshman midfielder from Leyland, England, ranked tied for second in scoring with 11 ppints on three goals and five assists - tied with Hance for the lead. She recorded a pair of multi-point games with a goal and an assists in the season-opener at Louisiana Tech and a goal and two assists in the 6-1 win over Texas Southern, which established the school-record for margin of victory.

Her 43 shots on the season ranked 10th in the conference, while her five assists matched Hance for 11th.
