PSU Women’s Soccer player earns All-New England honor

Schmidt represents Panthers with Third Team selection

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The starting goalkeeper on the Plymouth State University women's soccer team has received another post-season honor, this one from the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA).

            Junior goalkeeper Annaliese Schmidt (Newmarket, N.H./Newmarket) was named to the 2015 NEWISA Division III All-New England Third Team. Schmidt is a two-time All-Little East Conference (LEC) First Team selection and was a key player on a Panther squad that posted its best season record since 2009.

            A 5'9" junior, Schmidt started 15 of PSU's 17 games in goal, ranking third in the LEC in total saves (121) and save percentage (.834).  She posted double-digit saves in seven of her 16 appearances, including five in a row in October.  She recorded shutouts over Rhode Island College and New England College, and was the winning keeper in PSU whitewashes over Daniel Webster College, Salem State University and Norwich University.

            The Panthers finished the season with a 7-9-1 overall record and a 2-4-1 mark in LEC contests. PSU was eliminated from the LEC Tournament in the quarterfinal round at the University of Massachusetts Boston, 2-0.
