Amy Sauer Named To Soccer America's MVP Team
Jan. 11, 2002
BERKELEY, Calif. - Stanford senior Amy Sauer (Spring, TX) has been named to the Soccer America's 11-player College Women's MVP Team. Sauer was one of the Cardinal's best defenders and also its primary playermaker, starting attacks from the back to offset Stanford's creative deficiencies in midfield.
Always solid in defense and dangerous when going forward, Sauer was the pivotal player in Stanford's march to a second NCAA third-round appearance in three years, anchoring a back line that surrendered fewer than five shots on goal per game.
Sauer played every match of her career and started all but one, holding the all-time school record with 83 matches played. She also tied former Cardinal Jessica Fischer (1992-95) with 82 games started.
