Kristin Olsen Is USC's First NSCAA All-America First-Teamer
Dec. 8, 2009
USC senior goalkeeper Kristin Olsen has added another high honor to her list of career accolades with the Women of Troy. Recently named a semifinalist for the prestigious Hermann Trophy, Olsen has just become USC's first-ever NSCAA All-America First Team selection. Olsen is one of six Trojans to have earned NSCAA All-America honors, but she now stands as the only USC player to take a spot on the first team.
Olsen earned a place on the NSCAA All-America Second Team as a sophomore in 2007 when the Trojans won their first-ever NCAA Championship - standing as the only Pac-10 team ever to win a national championship. In her senior season, Olsen stood out as the top goalkeeper in the Pac-10 and in the nation. She was the lone goalkeeper selected to the All-Pac-10 First Team, and is the only goalkeeper on the recently announced roster of Hermann Trophy semifinalists. Her selection to the NSCAA All-America First Team is further evidence of Olsen's highly regarded position in the collegiate goalkeeping scene this season. She's also been named a finalist for Soccer News Net Player of the Year.
Olsen now has wrapped up her illustrious career as a Trojan as USC's all-time leader in wins (46), shutouts (29) and goals-against average (0.69) and second all-time in career saves (253).
