University of Colorado soccer players Anne Stuller and Lizzy Herzl were named
All-Pac-12 Conference Second Team selections by collegesportsmadness.com.
The juniors are the first Buffaloes to receive post-season honors from the site. It also marks the first time either player has received non-academic post-season honors.
Stuller had a stellar season, leading the Buffs with 18 points. The Boulder native kicked it up a notch in her third year with the Buffs, scoring eight goals and contributing two assists. Stuller had three multiple-goal games in the Buffs' first four games of 2012. She joins Nikki Marshall (2006) and Katie Griffin (2005) as the only players in CU history to have three multiple-goal games in a single season.
Stuller broke into numerous spots in the CU record books, taking more shots on goal this season than in her first two years combined. Her career performance ranks her amongst the Buffs' top junior performers. She holds down third on the junior list with 78 shots, ties fourth for goals and ties sixth for points. She ranks fifth for both shots and shots on goal in a single season. She also holds career records, at seventh all-time with 65 shots on goal and ties ninth with 143 shots attempted.
Herzl, a defender from Littleton, has been an amazing asset for the Buffs. She helped the dominate defense to eight shutouts, including a record-setting three in a row to start the season. She scored the game-winner, her first goal since her freshman season, in the Buffs' 3-0 victory over Arizona. The win helped Colorado to its first back-to-back road wins in the Pac-12.
