SLU’s Gillette, Raines named to Southland All-Tournament Team

Published 1:47 pm Tuesday, November 9, 2021

Southeastern Louisiana University’s Darby Gillette and Jamie Raines were named to the 2021 Southland Conference Women’s Soccer All-Tournament team, the league announced at the conclusion of Sunday’s Southland Tournament title game between UIW and Northwestern State.

Gillette, a second team All-Southland selection last week, assisted on SLU’s game-winning goal by Ellie Williams in the Lady Lions’ 1-0 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Thursday. The defender played 162 of the 180 minutes SLU played in the conference tournament yielding just one goal to Northwestern State, the 2021 tournament champions.

Raines, a senior, played 150 minutes in the two tournament matches. The local product from Covington, Louisiana was terrific in both matches, particularly in the semifinals against Northwestern State. The Lady Lions’ midfielder helped SLU control the offensive attack for much of the second half against NSU despite falling 1-0.

Gillette and Raines joined nine others from the conference as UIW and Northwestern State got seven of the nine slots while McNeese claimed the other two spots.
