Receiving all-conference honorable mention were junior midfielder Patrick Fisher, senior defender Leo Krupnik and freshman defender Troy Roberts.

Roner, a Novato native, has started in all 17 games thus far, tallying three goals and two assists for eight points. He had the game-winning goal in a 4-0 win over Oregon State, Oct. 28.

Saunders, a junior transfer from Cal State Fullerton, has also started all 17 games so far in 2001, recording five shutouts. With just under 1,600 minutes of play under his belt, he has a goals-against-average of 1.02 and a save percentage of .788.

Munoz and Ripmaster lead Cal in assists and goals, respectively. Munoz, a native of Los Alamitos, is second in the conference in assists with seven. He has also contributed in the scoring column, scoring the game-winning goal in overtime versus Santa Clara, Oct. 7. Ripmaster has been a spark plug this year on the attack for the Golden Bears scoring six goals, including game-winners against No. 4 Washington and No. 14 San Jose State. He was selected Pac-10 Player of the Week, Sept. 25 for his effort in the latter victory.

Fisher, Krupnik and Roberts earned all-conference honorable mention, bringing Cal's Pac-10 all-conference total to seven, two more than the inaugural all-conference team last season.

Roner's selection to the first team marks the second time he has earned the honor in as many years. Krupnik was an honorable mention all-conference selection last year.
