BANNER ELK, N.C. -- Anderson University senior Lasse Sohrweide headlines the 2011 Daktronics NCAA Division II all-Southeast Region Men's Soccer team, garnering Southeast Region Player of the Year honors for the second-straight year to lead a group of three repeat selections, announced region officials Tuesday.

The Daktronics NCAA Division II all-Southeast Region Teams are voted on by the sports information directors of the Southeast Region. The region is comprised of the Conference Carolinas, the Peach Belt Conference, and the South Atlantic Conference.

Members of the first team are now eligible for Daktronics NCAA Division II All-America honors.

Sohrweide garners Southeast Region Player of the Year honors for the second straight season after earning SAC Player of the Year recognition for the second consecutive year. The senior forward led the SAC in points, goals, match-winners, and assists, while ranking third in the nation in helpers and fifth in markers.

Flagler College paced the region with five all-region selections, while Anderson placed four players in the two-team group. Coker College and Lees-McRae College also received three selections each. Sohrweide was joined by 2010 selections Luke Duffy of Lees-McRae and Tom Winspear of King College.
