Dec. 12, 2000

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford freshman Marcie Ward (Alamo, CA) and junior Amy Sauer (Spring, TX) were both named to the West Region All-America Soccer Team on Tuesday by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and adidas.

Ward, the Pacific-10 Conference Freshman of the Year, was a First Team All-American after leading the Cardinal in scoring with 42 points (14 goals, 14 assists). Her 14 assists broke the single-season record at Stanford, previously held by U.S. National Team member Julie Foudy. Ward, a forward, was also a First Team All Pac-10 selection and led the conference in assists (14) and assists per game (0.67), which ranks 10th in the nation. She finished second in the Pac-10 in points and third in goals.

Sauer anchored the Cardinal defense, which had 10 shutouts on the year while allowing 27 goals. She started in 20 of 21 games and was Stanford's most consistent defender. Sauer earned Second Team All Pac-10 honors and was named to the Pac-10 All-Academic Second Team. Sauer recorded a goal and an assist on the season, including the game-winner over Weber State.

The Cardinal finished its 2000 season with a 14-6-1 overall record after losing to BYU in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament.
