Kansas City, Kan. – Lynn University women's soccer player Donish Cole was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America as a Third Team All-South Region selection on Thursday.  She becomes the fourth Lynn player since 1996 to collect all-region recognition as a freshman.

She joins Melissa Ortiz (2008), Piper Seaman (2001) and Marie Kolbert (1996) as all-region honorees in their freshman campaign with the Blue & White.
