Scheider Named Third Team NSCAA/Adidas Scholar All-American
Dec. 19, 2003
LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming senior goalkeeper Lori Scheider was recently named to the NSCAA/ Adidas 2003 Scholar All-America third team.
To qualify for the award, a player must be at least a junior in academic standing (in the second year of attendance at the school if a transfer student), have a minimum of a 3.30 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), start more than 50 percent of the time and be a significant contributor to the team's success.
Scheider, a native of Littleton, Colo., is majoring in criminal justice and has a cumulative GPA of 3.344.
Scheider was named first-team All-Mountain West Conference this past season after leading the Cowgirls (10-9) to the best finish in Wyoming soccer history. She led the MWC in saves, saves per game and tied for the lead in shutouts with seven. She leaves Wyoming with the second most career saves in school history (326) despite playing just three seasons. She transferred to UW from Portland State prior to the 2001 season.
"Lori is well deserving of the recognition she has received this year both on and off the field," said UW head coach Anne Moore. "She has worked extremely hard during her three years here at Wyoming and has been a big part of our teams success. We will miss her leadership next year but know she will be a success in all of her future endeavors."
The honorees will be recognized at the NSCAA All-America
Luncheon on Jan. 17, 2004. The luncheon is part of the 57th
Annual NSCAA Convention, which will be held Jan. 14-18,
2004, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.
