Sharts Named United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-America
KANSAS CITY — Colorado defender Hannah Sharts added to her postseason accolades, earning United Soccer Coaches Second Team Scholar All-America and First Team All-West Region on Thursday.
Sharts, a junior from Newbury Park, Calif., completed her undergrad with a 3.90 GPA in communications and is pursuing a Master's in organizational leadership.
Sharts enjoyed her best season in the Black and Gold in the spring, totaling four goals early on in the season. She recorded back-to-back game-winners against Northern Colorado and Weber State and added goals in CU's win at No. 10 California and Stanford. She finished second on the team with nine points, assisting on the game-winning goal at Utah.
The 5-11 defender led CU in minutes (1,574) this season and started every match. Sharts, a team captain this season, was a large presence on CU's youthful backline. She has helped the Buffs record eight total shutouts on the way to Colorado's 12th NCAA Tournament appearance.
She was earlier selected First Team All-Conference and All-Pacific Region. Sharts was also the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week (Feb. 15) and was named to Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week for April 13.
