WALTHAM, Mass. – Four members of the Brandeis University women's soccer team have been named second-team All-University Athletic Association in a vote of the league's coaches. Seniors Juliette Carreiro of Upton, Massachusetts, and Caroline Swan of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, were honored for the third time, junior Sydney Lenhart of Tucson, Arizona, for the second time and sophomore Ali Karafotias of Middleton, Massachusetts, for the first time.

Carreiro, a forward who earned third-team All-America honors in 2021, led the Judges in scoring for the second year in a row. She finished with nine goals and six assists for a career-best 24 points, including three goals and an assist in UAA play. Carriero had a point in 13 of the team's 17 contests this season, including a two-goal game in a non-conference contest against Roger Williams. She scored her UAA goals against Emory and NYU. Carreiro finished her career with 25 goals – only the 14th player to reach the milestone – and 71 points, finishing ninth on Brandeis's career list.

Swan, a midfielder, finished with three goals and six assists for 12 points. She tied with Carreiro for the team-high in assists and tied with two other players for second on the squad in overall points. Swan had two goals and three assists in UAA play, finding the back of the net against Washington University and NYU. Her goal against NYU established a new career scoring high. Swan finished her career with six goals and 17 assists, tying for sixth on the Judges' career assist list.

Lenhart, a midfielder, finished fifth on the team with 11 points and fourth with five goals. She netted the game-winning goal in three of the Judges' seven wins, helping defeat Lasell, Bridgewater State and Johnson and Wales. Lenhart has started all but six games over the past two seasons. She has nine goals and four assists for 22 points in her career.

Karafotias, a left back, helped the Judges generate three shutouts on the Brandeis defense. She was a reliable and consistent defender who showed a strong ability to maintain possession and build out of the back. Karafotias was able to shut down some of the UAA's top offensive players. Along with Carreiro and senior Makenna Hunt, Karafotias was one of the only Judges to start in all 17 games this season.

The Brandeis women's soccer team finished with a 7-8-2 record in head coach Mary Shimko's second season. They will have to replace their top four scorers for next year.

Carreiro is a 2018 graduate of Nipmuc Regional High School.

Swan is a 2019 graduate of Pine Richland High School.

Lenhart is a 2020 graduate of Salpointe Catholic High School.

Karafotias is a 2021 graduate of Masconomet Regional High School.
