Madison Ledet named all-tournament as Cards win Southland title
CONWAY, Ark. — Nederland graduate Madison Ledet was named the Southland Conference All-Tournament team shortly after helping Lamar University win the conference women’s soccer championship Sunday in Conway, Ark.
Ledet made an assist and took two shots in the Cardinals’ first-round victory against Stephen F. Austin on Wednesday. She also assisted on one of Esther Okoronkwo’s two goals in the title match, a 3-1 win over Northwestern State on Sunday.
