Amy Howard Picks Up A Pair Of National Accolades
Sept. 22, 2009
AUBURN, Ala. - After being named the Southeastern Conference's Freshman of the Week on Monday, Amy Howard picked up another two accolades on Tuesday for her outstanding performance in Auburn's scoreless tie with top-ranked North Carolina as she was named the Soccer America Player of the Week and a CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performer.
Howard, from Mandeville, La., saw North Carolina fire off 40 shots her way and stopped every shot it put on frame, establishing a career-high with 12 saves.
Howard, who was named to the Duke Nike Classic All-Tournament Team following the match, leads the SEC in saves (49) and saves per game (6.12), is sixth in save percentage (.860) and 10th in goals against average (0.94), having posted two shutouts.
Howard, who is the first Auburn player to ever be named a Soccer America Player of the Week, was also the only freshman on this week's Soccer America Team of the Week and was one of three freshmen listed in the 18 Primetime Performers.
Each week for the rest of the season, CS360 will honor players based on any/all of the following "primetime criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats)"
Must have been playing for a top-25 team or against such a top-level opponent (this requirement may be expanded late in the regular season, based on the importance of non-top-25 games in terms of conference tournament and/or NCAA qualification).
Auburn opens up SEC play on Friday at Mississippi State at 7pm and then will face Ole Miss at 2pm in Oxford, Miss., in a match televised live on ESPNU.
