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.
