Five Soccer Eagles Earn All-Conference Accolades – MSU Eagles

MOREHEAD, Ky. — In a season where the Morehead State soccer team had its best finish since 2013, five members of the program have earned recognition on the All-Ohio Valley Conference teams.

Fifth-year midfielder Kate Larbes is a First-Team selection. Sixth-year midfielder Colleen Swift and fifth-year defender Sarah Faloon are on the Second-Team. Freshmen forward Hedda Ornberg and defender Hannah Burke earned slots on the All-Newcomer Team.

This is the highest number of player awards the program has earned in one season since garnering six in 1999 (when the OVC had only six teams playing soccer).

Larbes, from Liberty Township, Ohio, was a catalyst in helping the Eagles to a 6-1-2 OVC mark and a 7-5-5 overall record. She ranks tied for the first on the team with four goals and leads the team with 37 shots. Larbes’ goals all came in two matches. She scored twice at Detroit and at SIUE. Larbes also was credited with two assists to tie for the team lead in points with 10. She started all 17 regular-season matches and has played 1,300 minutes this season.

Swift, hailing from Loveland, Ohio, is tied with Larbes for the team lead  in points with 10. She has scored four goals along with two assists. With 1,243 minutes on the field this year, Swift has played more than 5,700 career minutes. Swift has 20 shots and has a .550 shot-on-goal percentage.

Faloon, from Macomb, Mich., has helped the Eagles to seven shutouts this fall. In addition, she has registered two goals and an assist to lead all OVC defenders in points. She made 16 starts in the backfield and has played more than 1,100 minutes in 2023.

Ornberg, who is from Gothenburg, Sweden, burst onto the college scene with four goals this season. She has led the Eagles in shots on goal with 20. Ornberg has played in all 17 matches and has seen more than 1,000 minutes.

Burke, from Warrington, England, has registered a pair of assists. More crucially though, she has helped the defense post seven shutouts, including six shutouts against OVC teams.

Morehead State got a bye into the OVC Tournament semifinals and will face seventh-seeded Southeast Missouri at 8 p.m. ET at Tennessee Tech Thursday night.
