Soccer's Bingham Tabbed First Team All-Pac-10
Nov. 10, 2006
TEMPE, Ariz. - Kim Bingham, a member of the Arizona State University soccer program, has been named to the All-Pac-10 First Team, the conference office announced Thursday. The lone goal keeper selected to the league's top squad, Bingham recently completed her senior campaign in which she turned in solid numbers in helping the Sun Devils finish 8-8-3 overall and 3-5-1 in the Pac-10.
Bingham concluded her career in Tempe as one of the top keepers in the history of the program as she helped limit opponents to 17 goals this year, a record-low for the Sun Devils that surpassed the 23 allowed in 2003, 2001, 2000 and 1999. Individually, Bingham ranks second in career saves (264), goals against average (1.15) and shut outs (16.5) while her senior campaign saw her rank second in both shut outs (7.0) and goals against average (0.86) while her 89 saves ranked fifth in a season. Bingham also recorded the fourth-best goals against average against Pac-10 foes (1.18) while ranking fifth in fewest goals allowed in Pac-10 play (11).
Bingham's selection to the conference team means ASU has had at least one of its players selected to the Pac-10's first team each of the last seven seasons. All told, Bingham is the sixth different Sun Devil to earn a place on the first team and gives the program its 12th first team honoree. She joins previous selections Stacey Tullock (1998, 1999, 2000 & 2001), Amy LePeilbet (2001, 2002 & 2003), Elizabeth Bogus (2002 & 2005), Manya Makoski (2004) and Brittany Cooper (2005) as the Sun Devils to have earned the honor.
