ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF women's soccer goalkeeper Aline Reis (Campinas, Brazil) received a very high honor at the end of the season as she was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America College Scholar All-America Second Team. The junior helped lead the Knights to a 15-5-3 record, the Conference USA regular-season title and a national seed in the NCAA Tournament in the fall.

UCF has now had a player selected as a NSCAA College Scholar All-American in each of the past four seasons. Only 35 student-athletes in the entire country at the Division I level received College Scholar All-American status by the NSCAA this year.

Reis also joined senior defender Lauren Halbert (Niceville, Fla.) on the NSCAA Scholar All-South Region Teams, giving the Knights 13 academic all-region selections since 2003.

Reis holds a 3.507 grade-point average while majoring in interdisciplinary studies. She has received a spot on the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll every year from 2007-09.

An All-C-USA First Team member the past two seasons, Reis recorded five shutouts in 2010 and finished with a 1.03 goals-against average along with 77 saves. She posted a season-high 10 saves at Colorado College, as well as seven saves in a shutout win over No. 19 Arizona State.

During the season, Reis tied a C-USA record with her seventh-career Defensive Player of the Week award.

In front of Reis as a starter for the last two seasons, Halbert was instrumental in helping the Knights hold opponents to just 22 goals in 23 matches. She also chipped in an assist from her position on the backline in 2010.

Halbert has now been honored with a spot on the scholar all-region team in each of the past two seasons. She carries a 3.839 GPA while majoring in health sciences, pre-clinical.
