A Washington University athlete and Maplewood native, was recently named to the 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Continental Tire Women's Soccer Division III All-Central Region Team, the organization announced.
The honorary team includes Amy French, a Columbia High School alumnus and goalkeeper for Washington University in St. Louis.
“French had a record-breaking season in 2013 posting a 19-1-1 record with a 0.40 goals against average,” school officials said.
“She set the single-season school record with 11 shutouts, and tied the school record with 19 wins. French, a second-team all-UAA honoree, led the UAA and was seventh in NCAA Division III in goals against average (0.40), while also leading the conference in save percentage (.893) and shutouts (11). She made a career-high nine saves in a 1-0 win at then-No. 7 Emory Oct. 6, and was a four-time UAA Defensive Athlete of the Week honoree,” they added.
French and her team, under head coach, earned a school record 20-1-1 overall mark in 2013, and advanced to the NCAA Division III Quarterfinals for the third-straight season and seventh time in school history.
The Bears also won their second-consecutive and ninth UAA Championship with a 7-0 record. Washington U. was ranked No. 1 in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Top-25 Poll for the second time in school history.
