Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University women's soccer senior forward Bri Borgman (Holland/West Ottawa) capped off her collegiate career by being named to the 2011 All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) First Team.
The league's annual postseason honorees were voted on by the conference's member head coaches and announced in conjunction with the GLIAC Tournament Semifinals and Finals on Friday night (Nov. 4) in Allendale, Mich.
Borgman was among 11 first-team recipients and one of only four forwards on the squad, which also included three midfielders, three defenders and a goalkeeper. Eleven others were recognized as second-team selections.
Grand Valley State junior forward Ashley Botts was named the 2011 GLIAC Offensive Player of the Year while her teammate, junior midfielder Alyssa Mira, was named Defensive Player of the Year in balloting conducted by the league's coaches. Saginaw Valley State rookie goalkeeper Laura Ivezaj was honored with the league's Freshman of the Year award and Dave DiIanni, who guided Grand Valley State to the GLIAC Championship, earned Coach of the Year accolades.
The 5-5 Borgman finished the 2011 campaign with a team-high 10 goals and added two assists for 22 total points. It marked the third consecutive year in which Borgman has scored 10 goals in a season and the third year in a row she's tallied 22 points or more.
The four-year letterwinner claimed All-GLIAC First Team honors for the second time as she was also a first-team recipient in 2009 when she was also named to the Daktronics All-Midwest Region Second Team.
Borgman wrapped up her Bulldog career with 35 goals, eight assists and 78 total points in 74 career outings. She concluded her career ranked third in goals, fourth in points and 10th in assists among FSU's all-time leaders. In addition, her 10 career game-winning goals is currently second on the school chart.
This season, Borgman wrapped up league regular-season play listed third in goals (10) and fourth in points (22) among the GLIAC's seasonal leaders.
Ferris State finished the 2011 campaign with a 7-9-3 overall record and reached the GLIAC Postseason Tournament for the second-straight year. This year's appearance in the tournament represented the program's fourth ever as the Bulldogs also made the tournament in 2007 and 2008 before the back-to-back trips in 2010 and 2011.
