Soccer Buzz Announces Women's National Awards

Jan. 11, 2002

Stanford, Calif. - Soccer Buzz, the exclusive women's collegiate soccer web publication, announced its annual national awards for women's soccer today. Since 1996, Buzz has recognized top players and coaches on the national and regional levels. Awards were decided by voting open to all 278 Division 1 Head Coaches and the Soccer Buzz staff.

Stanford's Amy Sauer (Spring, TX) was named Second Team All-American by Soccer Buzz, while Marcie Ward (Alamo, CA) was an Honorable Mention All-America selection.

Sauer and Ward were both members of the All-West First Team announced earlier this week. The duo was joined by Marcia Wallis (Los Gatos, CA) on the All-West Second Team and Callie Withers (Los Altos Hills, CA) was named to the Third Team.

The Cardinal finished its 2001 campaign with a 15-4-2 overall record. Stanford lost to Texas A&M in the Third Round of the NCAA Women's College Cup, concluding their postseason run.
