Daniella Famili Named Third Team All-Region


Dec. 5, 2017


Coastal Carolina forward Daniella Famili added to her list of accomplishments by being named to the 2017 United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women's All-South Region team.

Famili garnered third team All-South Region honors, scoring 10 goals and seven assists for 27 total points. This is Famili’s second All-Region honor as she was tabbed first team last season. She is the only Chanticleer to be a two-time selection and joins three other Chanticleers that have made the prestigious team including Ashleigh Gunning (2007), Kacey Kelley (2014) and Amber Adams (2016).

The United Soccer Coaches South Region includes schools from the ACC, SEC, Big XII, ASUN, Sun Belt, C-USA, Southland, and Ohio Valley Conference.

Famili, a native of Stockholm, Sweden, led Coastal to a second runner-up finish in the Sun Belt this past fall and earned second team all-conference honors. Her 10-goal season set a career high after notching consecutive nine-goal seasons in 2015 and 2016. Famili ranks fourth on the program's all-time list with 31 career goals and 75 points. She tallied five game-winning goals this season.

Famili was named first team All-Sun Belt in 2016, first team All-Big South in 2015 and was the Big South 2014 Freshman of the Year.
