Lacee Bethea has whirlwind week capped off with special honors

It is to no one’s surprise that Richland County athletes are excelling at an exceptional rate in college athletics.

This week was no different as three Richland County products had weeks to remember including Lexington’s own Lacee Bethea who brought home some hardware.

Let’s check in with Bethea as well as Madison’s Taylor Huff and Mansfield Senior’s Angelo Grose in this week’s Campus Tour.

Lacee Bethea – Bowling Green Soccer

It was a big week for Lexington’s own Lacee Bethea. After scoring a goal in a 1-0 win over Buffalo in the Mid-America Conference women’s soccer semifinals, Bethea struck again with a game-deciding goal in a 3-0 win over Kent State to help her Bowling Green State University Falcons win the 2021 MAC championship making it the fourth consecutive season and the sixth time in program history, the Bowling Green State University women’s soccer program has won the Mid-American Conference Tournament title.

Lexington product Lacee Bethea celebrates with her team after leading the BGSU Falcons to the MAC championship in women's soccer.

For her efforts, Bethea was named the MAC Tournament Most Valuable Player for the Falcons in just her sophomore season. But the awards didn’t stop there.

On Monday, Bethea was named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week and earned honorable mention honors on the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week. For her two goals in the two tournament games.
