Keyser Pegged to Women's Soccer All-America Team
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Dec. 15, 2010) — For the first time in program history, a Plattsburgh State women’s soccer player has landed a spot as an All-American.
Lindsey Keyser was the only State University of New York Athletic Conference representative on the 2010 NSCAA/Performance Subaru Women's NCAA Division III All-America Team, netting third-team honors. The announcement comes after Keyser already garnered first-team All-SUNYAC accolades and a spot on the NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-East Region first team.
"We are very excited for Lindsey. She is extremely talented and hardworking," Coach Karen Waterbury said. "Lindsey represents herself, the team and the institution in many positive ways, and this award is a reflection of the Cardinal women's soccer program."
A midfielder from Keeseville, N.Y., Keyser registered 17 points on seven goals and three assists in her junior campaign, starting in each of the team’s 20 games. Three of her seven goals were game-winning tallies for a Cardinal team that finished tied for first in the SUNYAC and cracked the NCAA Division III tournament for the second straight year.
Her seven goals matched her career total going into the 2010 season, and the 17 points were a career-high. In Keyser’s three years as a Cardinal, she has totaled 14 goals and eight assists.
Plattsburgh ended up with a 15-4-1 overall record that included the Skidmore College Classic and SUNYAC regular-season titles.
