2016 Daktronics NAIA Women's Soccer Scholar-Athletes | TU Honors Page

KANSAS CITY – The Taylor women's soccer team earned eight Daktronics NAIA Scholar-Athlete Awards, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics recently announced.


In order to be eligible to be named an NAIA Scholar-Athlete, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade-point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved junior academic status at their current institution. Taylor had eight of its 11 eligible student-athletes receive the honor.


Amy Frederickson, Fayth Glock, Shannon Jacobsen, Megan Kammer, Sammi Lawson, Shelbi Lowe, Meghan Sulka and Katie Wierenga were among the 578 women's soccer student-athletes around the nation to be named 2016 NAIA Scholar Athletes and were eight of the 74 student-athletes from the Crossroads League to be honored.


In addition to the academic success, Taylor left its mark in the record books this season, setting program-bests for wins (14), shutouts (11), and goals-against per game (0.65). The Trojans also cracked the NAIA Top-25 for the first time in program history and reached the highest ranking in team history (No. 16).

Record: 7-2 Home: 4-1 Away: 3-1 Neutral: 0-0 Crossroads: 0-0
