KANSAS CITY -- Three California women’s soccer players are members of the 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Pacific Region teams, the organization announced Tuesday. Senior Emi Lawson (Seattle) is part of the first team while senior Kaitlyn Fitzpatrick (Pleasanton, Calif.) was named to the second team and sophomore Ifeoma Onumonu (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) is on the third team.

Lawson, a staple of the Cal backline for all four years of her career, leaves Cal after playing in 85 games. She scored 22 points with seven goals and eight assists as a defender and captain. Lawson also claimed NSCAA All-Pacific Second Team honors in 2012, along with being named to the 2013 All-Pac-12 First Team, 2012 All-Pac-12 Second Team and 2010 Pac-12 All-Freshman team. She claimed Pac-12 All-Academic honors thrice with honorable mentions in 2011 and 2012 and a second team selection in 2013.

This is Fitzpatrick’s third selection to the NSCAA All-Pacific team, as she was also recognized in 2012 (third team) and 2011 (second team). The explosive midfielder scored 16 goals and tallied 18 assists in her 81 games, tying for fourth in the Cal program records for career assists. She was a 2011 and 2013 All-Pac-12 honorable mention and a member of the 2010 Pac-12 All-Freshman squad.

Onumonu is now 2-for-2 in NSCAA honors after being named to the first team in her debut season last year. She also picked up Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, All-Freshman and first team honors from the conference in 2012. The sophomore found net eight times and added three assists this season for a total of 19 goals and nine assists, and she was also named a 2013 Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention.
