Kansas City, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the 2012 NAIA Women’s Soccer All-America teams and Florence Dadson of Robert Morris was selected to the Third team while fellow Eagle Linda Eshun was named to the Honorable Mention team.

Dadson is a junior forward from Cape Coast, Ghana and was the Eagles’ leading scorer in 2012 for the second consecutive season with 31 goals and ten assist for 72 points.  Her 72 points and 31 goals were second most in the country despite missing the Eagles’ first four games of the season to compete in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup.   She was also ranked third in points per game (3.79), fourth in total game-winning goals (7) and goals per game (1.63), and sixth in game-winning goals per game (0.37).  Dadson was named the 2012 CCAC Conference Player of the Year as well this season and was a NAIA All-America First team selection in 2011.

Eshun (pictured below) is a junior midfielder from Takoradi, Ghana and was RMU’s second leading scorer during the 2012 season with 11 goals and four assists for 26 points.  This is the second straight Honorable Mention selection for her and she also earned CCAC All-Conference 1st team honors in 2012.

The NAIA All-America committee consists of the NAIA-Women’s Soccer Coaches Association Executive Committee, the championship games committee and two men’s soccer coaches based on geography. There were 11 members on each of the first Team, second Team and third Teams, and then an additional honorable mention list.
