GULF SHORES, Ala. - Junior forwards Mandy McCalla and Rafaelle Souza were honored recently for their efforts on the 2012 season when they were tabbed for postseason honors by the league's coaches, the conference office announced on Monday.

McCalla and Souza were both named All-SEC second team selections, while Souza was also named Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year with Missouri's Allison Hu.

"This is a much deserved honor for both of these young ladies," said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott." They have had terrific seasons and continued to score all season long, in non-conference and conference games."

Souza was selected for the Scholar Athlete honor with a 3.72 GPA in Engineering as the junior excels in both the classroom and on the field.

McCalla led the Southeastern Conference this season in both goals (13) and points (32) as she and Souza combined to be the most prolific offensive duo in the league this season. Souza finished the regular season second in the league in both categories, tallying 12 goals and 32 points through 20 matches.

The 13 goals for McCalla surpassed her previous best of five goals as a sophomore, while Souza also eclipsed her previous season best of nine goals set in her sophomore campaign. McCalla also tallied four game-winning goals this season for the Rebels, while Souza chipped in with three game-winners.

Souza and McCalla also finished in the top 10 in the Southeastern Conference in assists this season with seven and six, respectively.
