Schroeder Earns Second RMAC Defensive Honor This Season
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Kelly Schroeder, the all-time leader in shutouts and one of the top goalkeepers in Division II based on save percentage, earned her second RMAC Defensive Player of the Week honor for the No. 11 University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer program this afternoon. Schroeder recorded two more shutouts last week to increase her career total to nine.
Schroeder made 15 saves last week, with nine against Metro State, and lowered her goal-against average to 0.35 to rank No. 19 in the nation. She's seventh in Division II with a save percentage of 94.4% and is No. 40 in total saves. Schroeder is also the anchor for a defense that is ranked No. 20 in the nation with a shutout percentage of 67%.
The Mountain Lions improved their record to 6-0 this season after going 3-0 last week against Western Colorado, New Mexico Highlands and Metro State. UCCS made its first ever appearance in the NSCAA national polls at No. 11 this week and improved to a program-high second in the South Central Regional rankings.
Schroeder and the rest of the team will travel for the first time this season to Regis on Friday and No. 14 Fort Lewis on Sunday for afternoon contests. Both opponents went 1-0-1 during the opening weekend of the conference season.
