FROSTBURG, MD —
The postseason honors continue to roll in for Frostburg State sophomore Karen Kotofski (Northeast/Glen Burnie, Md.)
, who on Friday was named to the 2002 National Soccer Coaches Association of America adidas Great Lakes Region All-America Soccer Team.
Kotofski, who was selected to the third team, is just the second FSU women's soccer player in the program's nine years to earn regional All-America honors.
Former standout Amy Foote was voted to the Mid-Atlantic Region All-America third team in 1998.
This is the third postseason honor for Kotofski. She was named to the All-AMCC first team for the second straight year and also earned second-team Verizon/CoSIDA All-Academic District II accolades with a 3.615 grade point average in early childhood/elementary education.
Kotofski led Frostburg State with 17 goals and 36 points this season despite missing the team's first five games with a leg injury.
The Bobcats posted a 10-8-4 overall record, won their second straight Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference championship and earned a berth in the NCAA Division III Tournament for the second year in a row.
Kotofski made up for lost time by scoring eight goals in her first three games in the lineup.
After finding the net in a 3-1 win over Washington & Jefferson, she scored a career-high four goals in an 8-0 blitzing of Pitt-Bradford and then tallied all three FSU goals in a 3-3 tie with Grove City.
Kotofski scored both Bobcat goals in a 2-1 overtime win over Pitt-Greensburg in the AMCC semifinals, and she converted her penalty kick to spark FSU's shootout-round victory over La Roche in the AMCC title match.
She also scored FSU's lone goal in a 4-1 loss to Westminster in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Kotofski, who set single-season school records with 21 goals and 49 points as a freshman, has 38 goals and 85 points in her two seasons at FSU.
She is chasing Foote's school career marks of 48 goals and 118 points.
