— Frostburg State senior forward Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./Northeast)
has been named to the 2004 All-Great Lakes Region second team, which was selected by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. This is her third straight regional All-America honor.
This fall, Kotofski was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Player of the Year for the second straight year after setting a Bobcat single-season record with 54 points on 21 goals and 12 assists. She surpassed the former mark of 53 points she set in 2003.
In the latest NCAA Division III statistics, Kotofski is tied for 13th in the nation in points per game (2.65) and is also tied for 22nd in goals per game (1.05). She is just shy of ranking in the top 25 in assists per game (.60).

Frostburg State won its fourth straight AMCC Tournament title and earned a fourth consecutive berth in the NCAA Tournament. The Bobcats edged Westminster 5-3 in penalty kicks to advance to the second round for the second year in a row before falling to eventual national quarterfinalist Christopher Newport 1-0.
Kotofski also set a school career record with 26 assists, moving past Erin Hawley’s mark of 25 set from 1994-1997. Kotofski continued to add to her FSU career records for both goals and points as well, finishing with 83 goals and 192 points.
During her career, Kotofski helped the Bobcats to a combined 57-21-7 overall record, four AMCC Tournament titles, four NCAA Tournament appearances and two AMCC regular-season crowns.
