Studer Notched All-Region Honors
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Oregon State women's soccer team's Sydney Studer was awarded the sole United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women's All-Pacific Region award, as announced Tuesday.
The junior has been named to the USC's All-Pacific Region Second Team.
"I'm very proud of Syd for this accomplishment," said head coach Matt Kaga. "She is a great player, a great person, and a terrific leader for the Beavers. She deserves this honor."
Recently named to the Pac-12 All-Conference Second Team, Studer was a strong player throughout the season on both sides of the field. A defender on the roster, she led the team in points (14) and goals (7).
During one of the final weekends of the season, she was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week. Her award was the result of Studer notching the first, and only, Beaver hat trick of the season on April 4.
The Eastvale, Calif. native scored six of her seven goals off of her head, including all three in her hat trick. The final goal was an unassisted ball that she took off the feet of an offender in the penalty box. Studer ran with the ball through all of the players on the field to shoot a cannon into the net from just outside of the opposite penalty box.
Studer played on the field for the third-most minutes, second-most for a field player - behind just redshirt-sophomore defender Madison Ellsworth.
As a team, Oregon State finished with a 4-11-1 overall record. The Beavers will be back to playing in the fall.
