ANDERSON, LUM AMONG WOMEN’S SOCCER’S EIGHT ALL-BIG SKY SELECTIONS
OGDEN, Utah – Sophomore forward Alyssa Anderson and redshirt freshman midfielder Jennifer Lum earned all-Big Sky women's soccer second team honors while six Hornets garnered honorable mention selections, the conference announced Tuesday.
Anderson led the Hornets in scoring with seven goals and one assist for 15 points while she finished the regular season tied for second in the Big Sky in goals and was tied for third in points. She had three game winning goals and led Sacramento State in shots on goal (21) while recoding a .583 shots on goal percentage. She earned her second all-Big Sky honor in as many seasons after garnering honorable mention as a freshman.
In her first season playing with the Hornets Lum shined in the midfield, tallying two goals and four assists for eight points. She had one goal and three assists in conference play and posted two game winning goals. Lum also ranked fifth in the conference and led the team with 43 shots on the season, placing 18 on goal.
Mata was second in the Big Sky in saves per game (5.62) and third in total saves (90) and shutouts (6) in her first season as a starter. Anast and Swanson anchored the defense in front of Mata and were the only two Hornets to start all 18 matches during the season, leading the team with 1,665 and 1,611 minutes played, respectively. A defensive midfielder, Small started 16 games and added one assist offensively as she earned her second-consecutive honorable mention selection, as did Swanson.
Seniors Rolling and Trenton ended their collegiate careers leading the Hornet offense, especially during conference play. Rolling earned her second all-Big Sky honorable mention selection after she led the team with four goals and two assists in Big Sky play and finished tied for fifth in the conference with five total goals for the season. Trenton had two assists in non-conference play before striking for four goals in the Big Sky, including the fifth hat trick in program history when she scored three times against Southern Utah.
Six of the eight Hornet honorees will return for the 2014 season, as will 2012 all-Big Sky second team selection Kassidy Kellogg, who played in just four matches this season before suffering a season-ending injury.
