Beam earns more All-American honors

Charlotte junior Hailey Beam, the 2008 Atlantic 10 Midfielder of the Year and the MVP of the Atlantic 10 tournament, has been named to SoccerBuzz Magazine's All-America second-team.

Beam led the conference and ranked among the nation's leaders with 17 goals, 13 assists and 47 points. Her 17 goals and 47 points are the third-highest single-season totals in program history, while her 13 assists tied for the second-highest single-season total.

Charlotte captured its third straight regular-season title and second consecutive A-10 championship and made its fourth-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. The 49ers advanced to the second round and ended the season with a school-record 18 wins.
