Katy Frierson Named NSCAA All-America
Dec. 3, 2010
Katy Frierson has been named a 2010 NSCAA/Performance Subaru Women's NCAA Division I Second Team All-America, it was announced on Friday. She is just the third Auburn soccer player to be named All-America and the first since 2004.
"We are real excited to see Katy recognized by NSCAA as an All-American," Auburn Head Coach Karen Hoppa said. "We feel that she is that level of a player and shows it every time she steps on the field. Her string of scoring a point in every one of our wins this season shows how valuable she is to our team and our program."
Frierson, a junior midfielder from Homewood, has previously been named to the NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-South Region First Team, the All-SEC First Team, the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Season and an ESPN Academic All-American.
This past season Frierson led Auburn and was fourth in the SEC with 28 points (eight goals, 12 assists), recording at least one point in all 11 of Auburn's wins. Her 12 assists were second-most in the conference and 11th nationally.
"This is a tremendous honor and I'm so happy and thankful for my coaches and teammates who put me in positions to succeed here at Auburn," Frierson said. "I'm just glad I could help the team and program move forward this year."
Auburn's previous NSCAA All-America selections were Megan Rivera in 2002 (Third Team, goalkeeper) and Ronda Brooks in 2004 (Third Team, defender).
Frierson, who was also named a Preseason All-American by Soccer America and was placed on the Hermann Trophy Watch List by the Missouri Athletic Club and the NSCAA, becomes Auburn's first soccer player to ever be named both an academic and athletic All-American during her career.
