By Datti Jinkiri
Former Long Beach soccer standout Alexa Beets was named to the NJCAA All-Region 23 Team in June. This was the Pearl River Community College defender's second individual honor of the season, as she was named to the All-MACCC Second Team at the conclusion of the regular season.
Beets, who was the team captain, started all 14 games for the Wildcats during the spring season. She was a key part of a defense that tallied four shutouts and only conceded one goal during five other games. She also chipped in offensively with one goal which came in a win over Copiah-Lincoln Community College.
Beets finished her Wildcat career with 27 starts in 27 appearances. She tallied two goals and led the team to two postseason appearances.
