CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Former Coastal Carolina women's soccer standouts Ashleigh Gunning and Blair Monroe were named to the Big South's All-Decade Team for the 2000s, the conference announced on Wednesday. Part of the Big South's 30th anniversary celebration, the all-decade teams were determined by conference administrators and fan voting.

Gunning was one of four midfielders named to the team, while Monroe was selected as one of five forwards. The duo combined to help lead Coastal to consecutive Big South Conference regular-season championships and tournament finals appearances in 2007 and 2008.

Gunning, who was recently inducted into Coastal Carolina's Sasser Athletics Hall of Fame, was two-time Big South Player of the Year, three-time all-conference and a three-time all-tournament selection. She ranks third in CCU history in goals (36), points (84) and shots (221) in just three seasons as a Chant and also holds the school's single- season mark for points in a season with 39 in 2007.

Monroe was Big South Freshman of the Year in 2005 and a three-time all-conference pick over her four seasons at Coastal. She is the school's all-time career leader with 42 goals and ranks second in points (94) and shots (228). Monroe's 17 goals scored during the 2005 season remain Coastal's single-season record.
