Schott Named First Team All-Pac-10 For Women's Soccer
Nov. 7, 2000
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - California sophomore forward Laura Schott was named first team All-Pac-10 today for her outstanding play during the 2000 regular season. Golden Bear senior defender Tami Pivnick and senior midfielder Natalie Stuhlmueller were selected to the second team.
Schott, a native of Wilsonville, Ore., finished the regular season as the league's leader for points (47), goals (23) and game-winning goals (9). A 1999 second team All-Pac-10 pick, Schott's 23 goals tied U.S. national team member Joy Fawcett's school record set in 1987, and she still has the postseason to break the record. Nationally, Schott ranks second for goals per game at 1.22 and eighth for points per contest at 2.47. She also was named Pac-10 Player of the Week, Oct. 2.
Stuhlmueller's second team selection follows two first team all-conference honors as a sophomore and junior. The product of Los Gatos is tied for third among all Bears in scoring this year with 13 points on four goals and five assists. Two of her goals were game winners against San Francisco and Oregon State. She has 20 career assists, which ranks second all-time at Cal.
This is Pivnick's first selection to the all-league team. A West Hills native, Pivnick has been a major factor in Cal boasting the No. 9 goals-against average in the country at 0.58. A former midfielder, she also finds ways to contribute to the Bears attack, posting eight points on two goals and four assists. She nailed the game-winning goal in Cal's 2-1 victory over No. 14 Wake Forest. Soccer America has twice recognized Pivnick's contributions to the team this season with selections to its Team of the Week.
Seven Cal players received honorable mention All-Pac-10 recognition - goalkeeper Maite Zabala, defenders Ashley Mueller and Amy White, midfielders Brittany Kirk, Kim Yokers and Ashley Valenzuela and forward Kyla Sabo.
Cal is 17-2-1 overall and finished second in the Pac-10 with a 7-2 mark. The No. 8 seed Bears host the winner of the Santa Clara/Cal Poly NCAA first round game Wednesday in the second round, Sat., Nov. 11, at 1 p.m., at Edwards Stadium.
