BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Sunshine State Conference announced its Women’s Soccer All-Decade Team for 2010-19 and former Florida Tech goalkeeper Mist Eliasdottir represented the Panthers as a second-team honoree.
In total, 23 players were selected to the SSC’s All-Decade Teams. Voting took place among the league’s administrators and women’s soccer coaches.
A four-year member of the Florida Tech women’s soccer team, Eliasdottir was the Panthers’ net-minder from 2008-11.
The Keflavik, Iceland native piloted Florida Tech to three consecutive NCAA tournament berths from 2009-11, including the program’s first-ever NCAA Division II Final Four appearance in 2010.
Also, in 2010 Eliasdottir helped guide the Panthers to their first SSC regular-season title in program history.
Eliasdottir played in 66 games during her four seasons with 40 career starts, including all 39 games during her final two years at Florida Tech. As a starting goalie, she led the Panthers to an overall record of 22-12-6.
Eliasdottir was a two-time All-SSC selection, earning first-team honors in 2010 and second team in 2011, and was named to the NSCAA All-South Region Second Team in 2010.
She was tabbed the national player of the week by both D2 Sports Insider and College Soccer 360 during the 2010 season in addition to receiving three SSC Defensive Player of the Week awards over her career.
Eliasdottir ranks third in program history with 16 shutouts over her four seasons, while her 136 career saves are sixth-most all-time. She held opposing teams to career goals-against an average of 0.52, which is the lowest of any goalkeeper selected to the SSC All-Decade Team.
Additionally, she currently ranks second in program history with 86 single-season saves (2010) and fourth in single-season shutouts with eight in both the 2010 and 2011 campaigns.
