Four Cardinal Named Top Drawer All-American

Dec. 10, 2007

Rachel Buehler and Kelley O'Hara picked up another honor by being named to the Top Drawer Soccer College Teams of the Season. Buehler was named to the First Team and O'Hara was named to the Third Team after leading the Cardinal to a 15-3-5 record on the season. Christen Press and Allison McCann were also named to the All-Rookie squads, with Press being named First Team and McCann being named to the Second Team.

Buehler continues to earn postseason accolades after another strong season. She anchored the Cardinal defense and led the unit to nine shutouts on the season and a 0.74 goals-against-average. She was recently named to the U.S. Women's National Team's Training Camp roster and was named First Team All-Pacific-10.

O'Hara, a sophomore forward, has scored nine goals and added five assists to lead the team with 23 points. O'Hara in the summer played for the U-20 U.S. National team and participated in the Pan Am Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Press has already been named the Freshman of the Year in the Pacific-10 conference and was Second Team All-Pacific-10. She was the third Cardinal in the programs history to earn Freshman of the Year honors. Press, from Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., scored eight goals in her rookie campaign and also assisted on six other goals throughout the season despite missing the first two games of the season.

McCann completed a strong rookie season by starting every game but one. She provided strong play in the midfield and added one assist for the season. She was also one of five players to appear in every game for the Cardinal on the season.
