Knox College's Dornam Earns All-Conference Recognition
Knox College's Arielle Dorman has been named to the 2009-10 All-Midwest Conference Women's Soccer Second Team.

The freshman forward from from Bothell, Washington (Inglemoor High School) led the Prairie Fire in goals, points, shots, and shots on goal. She also finished the season second on the team in assists. Dorman is the first women's soccer player from Knox to be honored on any All-Conference team in ten years, since 1999.

This season the 5'9" forward finished fifth in the Midwest Conference in goals (13) and finished sixth in the conference in points (31). Dorman cemented her place in Knox College women's soccer history, as she is now the school record-holder for goals in a season by a freshman and she tied the record for most points in a season, while also finishing second all-time for assists (5) by a freshman in a single season.

The Knox women's soccer team finished 2-15 overall and 1-8 in the MWC this year. The Prairie Fire defeated Illinois College 2-1 at home on October 4th to record their first conference victory of the season. Dorman collected both a goal and an assist in the win.

"Arielle is a phenomenal player and a natural goal scorer. She can create ways to score on opponents out of nothing," said Knox head coach Nikki McLellan. "I am extremely excited about the future of this program and Arielle has helped us turn a bunch of heads in the Midwest Conference. She will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in years to come."
