Jamie Achten (Lee/Franklin, Tenn.) closed her collegiate soccer career in style by claiming her fourth All-America selection with the announcement of the 2011 NSCAA/Continental Tires NAIA Women's All-America Team.

Achten, the 2010 National Player of the Year, led Lee to its fourth consecutive national championship this fall. Four teammates joined her on the All-America team: Amy Cochran (Yorba Linda, Calif.), Leah Fortune (Chicago, Ill.), Ode Fulutudilu (Cape Town, South Africa) and Laura Thacker (Norwich, England). Concordia (Ore.) matched Lee with five players named to the squad, while Baker University and Embry-Riddle (Fla.) each had four representatives selected.

The 39 athletes will be recognized at the annual All-America Luncheon, to be held in the Kansas City Convention Center's Grand Ballroom on Saturday, Jan. 14, in conjunction with the 2012 NSCAA Convention in Kansas City, Mo.
