Schott Named to Women's Soccer First Team NSCAA All-West Region Team
Dec. 12, 2000
MISSION, Kan. - California sophomore forward Laura Schott and senior defender Tami Pivnick were named to the 2000 NSCAA All-West Region team. Schott earned first team honors, while Pivnick was named to the third team.
Last week, Schott became the first Golden Bear to be named an NSCAA first team All-American since U.S. national team member Joy (Biefeld) Fawcett was selected in 1989. Cal's last All-American was Erika Hinton, who earned second team honors in 1993.
A first team All-Pac-10 pick and two-time Cal Offensive MVP from Wilsonville, Ore., Schott finished the season as the Pac-10's leader for points (47), goals (23) and game-winning goals (9). Her 23 goals tied Fawcett's school record set in 1987. Nationally, Schott concluded the year ranked second for goals per game at 1.15 and ninth for points per contest at 2.35. After two years in Berkeley, Schott ranks third in school history for goals (34) and fourth for points (77) and is on pace to break Fawcett's records of 55 and 133, respectively.
Pivnick, Cal's two-time Defensive MVP, helped anchor the 10th-best team defense (0.645) in the nation this season. The sweeper from West Hills, Calif., also found ways to contribute to Cal's attack in 2000, tying for fifth on the team with eight points (2 goals, 4 assists). Her outstanding efforts on the field and in the classroom helped Pivnick earn a selection to the second team All-Pac-10 (athletic) team and the first team Academic All-Pac-10 squad. Soccer America twice recognized Pivnick's contributions to the team this season with selections to its Team of the Week.
Cal finished the 2000 season with a 17-3-1 record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
