KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Nova Southeastern University women's soccer forward Sierra Lelii added another milestone to her already impressive career resume as the program's first All-American since 2007, designated as such by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
 
Lelii (R-Sr., Seminole, Fla.) was voted by the NSCAA member coaches as a Second Team honoree, and was one of just two players selected from the Sunshine State Conference. This comes on the heels of her other recent recognitions, both on the conference and regional level, following an unprecedented final season on the pitch.
 
Besides setting the NSU women's all-time single-season records in goals (18) and points (39), Lelii also finished in the top three on the program's career lists in goals (34), game-winning goals (10) and points (76). She is the third Shark All-American in the NCAA era, following Stephanie Quinones (2006 and 2007) and Shurell Burton (2007).
