|Monmouth College's Brom Earns All-Conference
|Hillary Broms, a junior defender on the Monmouth College women's soccer team, was recently named to the All-Midwest Conference second team.
A product of Richwoods High School, the Peoria resident received all-conference votes from eight of the other nine league coaches and narrowly missed a spot on the 11-player first team.
"Hillary has been one of our leading players the past three seasons, and I was very pleased that the other coaches in the conference recognized that this year," said Monmouth's head coach, Barry McNamara. "She has made a habit of playing tenacious defense while also making well-timed advances up the field into our attack. Hillary has a knack for beating her mark to the ball time after time, and she knows what to do with it when she gets it."
Broms frequently plays on the left side of the field, where she has an excellent rapport with former Richwoods teammate Kelly Russell, who is a sophomore outside midfielder for the Fighting Scots.
The daughter of Jeff Broms and Terri Broms, both of Peoria, Broms started all 18 of Monmouth's games this fall and rarely left the field. She has one goal and six assists so far in her MC career and has played in all but one of the Scots' 54 games during her career.
