WS1The Pacific West Conference recently released its 2014 All-PacWest Women’s Soccer Teams with four Hawai’i Pacific players landing on the team. Erika Ellis was named to the All-PacWest First Team, Ashlyn Ubongen to the Second Team and Lexi Cameau to the Third Team. Sierra Kadooka earned honorable mention honors.

Ellis earned her first All-PacWest award after playing an outstanding season and scoring 12 goals in 17 matches. The junior from Waianae not only proved her skill as a goal getter, but Ellis also contributed three assists to the Sharks’ successful season. The season highlight was a hat trick against Dominican, the forward finished tied for first in the PacWest in goals and points per game (1.59).

Playing her last season for the Sharks, Ubongen, originally from Kauai, contributed eight goals and eight assists to the Sharks’ performance. After being named Third All-PacWest Team last season, Ubongen was awarded Second Team All-PacWest for her achievements this year.

Senior Cameau received her first PacWest award after finishing the season with seven goals and two assists. The forward from San Diego played in 58 games for HPU throughout her career and started in 31 games in the last two seasons. Cameau not only showed her skill in long distance shots this year, she also took over responsibility during heated phases of the game frequently and became a key player on the field.

Kadooka, a key player on the Sharks’ defensive line, also earned an honorable mention for her exceptional performance. Kadooka’s defensive skills and her dedication helped the Sharks’ defense to become an insurmountable barrier. The junior from Kailua has played in all 52 games of her career, starting 49. Kadooka also scored one goal against Azusa Pacific this season.

The Sharks finished their season with an 11-4-2 overall record and a 8-3-1 mark in the PacWest. The 11 wins are the most in program history.
