Stanford, Calif. - Senior goalie Nicole Barnhart (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown) and junior defender Hayley Hunt (San Marino, Calif./Polytechnic) were both selected to 2004 NSCAA/adidas Women's NCAA Division I All-America Team, it was announced today. Barnhart was voted to the First Team, while Hunt earned Second Team honors.
Barnhart, a two-time First-Team All-American, led the Cardinal to 13 wins and a bid to the NCAA Tournament this season. She finished her senior campaign with a 0.44 goals against-average after allowing only 10 goals in 22 games. Barnhart completed her collegiate career ranked No. 1 in school history with a 0.452 goals against-average and No. 2 in career shutouts with 39 (just one shy of the school-record 40). She also ranks No. 3 in the Stanford record-books with 210 saves in her career. Barnhart also received NSCAA First-Team All-America honors in 2001 after posting 18 shutouts and finishing the season with a 0.189 goals against average, the best single-season total in Cardinal history.
Hunt, a first-time NSCAA All-American, was honored by Soccer America and Soccer Buzz in her rookie campaign, earning Freshman All-America honors from both publications. She was a two-time All-Pac-10 honorable mention and earned Second-Team All-Conference honors this year, as she helped anchor the Cardinal defense that limited opponents to only 10 goals throughout the season. Stanford shut out 13 opponents this season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Hunt also scored her first collegiate assist in the first game of the year against Utah.
