There weren’t a lot of positive moments this 2008 season for the Clayton State Laker women’s soccer team, but of the few, one took place recently.

The Peach Belt Conference released its 2008 All-Peach Belt Conference team and the Lakers had two representatives get selected. Midfielder Jennifer Powell and defender Bose Tanimola were both selected second team All-Peach Belt Conference for Clayton State.

This is the second All-Peach Belt Conference selection for Powell, a senior from Rincon who played at  South Effingham High School. She was also an All-Peach Belt selection as a freshman in the 2005 season. This season, Powell became the anchor of the Laker midfield with two goals and three for seven points, ranking her third on the team in scoring.

For her career, Powell played 65 games, starting all but three.

Tanimola, a senior from Kigo-State, Nigeria, started 15 games this season, serving as the defensive leader most of the time. For her career, Tanimola started every game (68), including the first 56 straight games.
