Amber Ellis Earns Scholar All-Region Accolades

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Evangel University senior Amber Ellis was named to the United Soccer Coaches Women's Scholar All-Region Team on Monday for her hard work in the classroom and on the field.

A senior from Gentry, Ark., she was named All-Heart Third Team after finishing with six goals and three assists.

Those meeting the criteria will be considered by the committee for one of the Scholar All-America teams. The committee reviews both the academic and athletic accomplishments of the nominees.
