Kelly Schroeder Named RMAC Defensive Player of the Week
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- Another flawless weekend for Kelly Schroeder has landed the senior goalkeeper Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Posting two consecutive shutouts, Schroeder helped propel the No. 17 University of Colorado Colorado Springs to a perfect 5-0 record, including a 2-0 start in the opening weekend of RMAC play.
The Mountain Lions travelled to Alamosa, Colo. on Friday Sept. 20 to take on Adams State University. Schroeder made four saves against the Grizzlies to earn the 1-0 shutout win. UCCS hit the pitch again on Sunday, Sept. 22 to complete their weekend on the road with a match against Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colo. Behind a solid Mountain Lion backline, Schroeder tacked on three more saves to earn another 1-0 shutout victory.
In five games played this season, Schroeder has logged 450:00 minutes of play, five starts, five wins, and four shutouts. Schroeder is currently ranked 20th in the nation at the NCAA Division II level for Goals Against Average at .400. She is also ranked No. 23 for both save percentage and goals against.
In 2012 Schroeder was awarded the RMAC Defensive Player of the Week twice on her way to receiving All-RMAC First Team honors and being named the 2012 RMAC Goalkeeper of the Year. With 18 career shutouts to her credit, she holds the UCCS program record and is ranked seventh in RMAC history.
The latest NSCAA/Continental Tire Division II National Poll was released earlier this morning with UCCS making their debut in the No. 17 spot. This marks only the second year that UCCS has made the top 25 poll, peaking at the No. 11 spot in 2012. As a team, the Mountain Lions are ranked No. 11 in the NCAA for shutout percentage and No. 32 for scoring. In five games played, the Mountain Lions have outscored their opponents 14-2.
UCCS will look to extend their perfect season to 6-0 for the second time in program history when they host Colorado Christian at Mountain Lion Stadium on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
