Yates Earns All-American Honors
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Summer Yates earned her first career All-American honors, with the United Soccer Coaches naming her to the All-American Second Team. Yates is the first Husky to earn All-American honors since 2004, when Tina Frimpong Ellertson did.
After leading the Huskies in scoring, Yates has now earned All-Pac-12 First Team, All-Region First Team, and All-American Second Team. Yates is the fourth Husky ever to earn All-American honors: she joins Tina Frimpong Ellertson (2004), Hope Solo (2000 & 2001), and Melanie Brennan (1993) in that regard.
This year, Yates had 12 points, helping the Huskies finish third in the Pac-12 for the second year in a row. Yates was a major part of the Huskies earning another NCAA Tournament bid, where they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2014. Yates now has 42 career points through her junior season, good for 15th in Husky history.
The junior also scored her second career brace this year, with two goals against Colorado. Yates is one of 18 Huskies ever to record multiple braces in their careers. She now has eight multi-point games in her career.
Yates is one of five players from the Pac-12 to earn All-American honors this year.
