Grinnell College's Frances Leslie '10 was named to the honorable mention list of the 2009 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Scholar All-Central Region Women's Team.

The forward also helped the Pioneer women claim the 2009 Team Academic Award from the NSCAA. Leslie led the Pioneers in goals in 2009, including a four-goal performance against Illinois College that was just one shy of the school record.

Grinnell's men had two honorees on the All-North Central/Region Team, as JP Prouty '10 was named to the first team and Alex Exarhos '10 the second team.

Prouty, a defender from Stilwell, Kan., is a biological chemistry major and Exarhos, a defender from Richland, Wash., is majoring in computer science. Prouty is a three-time All-Region selection, twice before earning third-team honors, while Exarhos was a third-teamer last year. Both again helped the Pioneers earn the Team Academic Award from the NSCAA.

Prouty and Exarhos, who are also multiple All-Midwest Conference selections, helped anchor a Pioneer defense that gave up a measly 1.43 goals a game. Both also ranked second on the team in assists with three, while Prouty was third in goals with five. Exarhos had one goal.
