Schott, Yokers Named First Team All-Pac-10
Nov. 20, 2002
BERKELEY - California senior forward Laura Schott and junior midfielder Kim Yokers have been selected to the first team All-Pac-10 team by the conference coaches today. Senior midfielders Carly Fuller and Brittany Kirk earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 honors.
Schott, who hails from Wilsonville, Ore., will graduate from Cal as one of the most decorated players in school history. In Cal's 2-0 NCAA first round win over Denver, the two-time All-American tallied her school record 56th career goal. After tying for the team lead with 18 points (7G, 4A) this year, Schott finished her career second all-time in Cal history for points with 128, five points shy of U.S. national team player Joy (Biefeld) Fawcett's school record of 133. This is Schott's third straight first team All-Pac-10 selection.
Meanwhile, Yokers' first team all-conference honor comes on the heels of a second team pick as a sophomore. The Seattle product posted five points in 2002 from one goal and three assists. Her one goal was the game winner against Denver. More important than the points, Yokers was a dominating force in Cal's central midfield.
Kirk posted 11 points this year from four goals and three assists and wrapped up her career tied for second all-time at Cal with 20 assists. This is her third consecutive honorable mention All-Pac-10 honor.
Fuller, who played three seasons at Duke, made the most of her one campaign in Berkeley in 2002. Known for her lethal free kicks, she tallied 12 points this year from four goals and four assists.
