NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Christina Huang, who helped anchor a Yale defense that allowed only 16 goals in 20 games, has been named a second team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Huang, a midfielder, started all 20 games for the Bulldogs and was fourth on the team in scoring with nine points. She also was named first team All-Ivy for the third straight year. One of her goals was the game-winner in the Bulldogs key Ivy League victory over Dartmouth.
Huang was the only Ivy League player to earn All-America honors.
Yale won a school record 15 games, captured the Ivy League title and advanced to the third round of the NCAA College Cup for the first time in school history.
The honorees will be invited to the NSCAA All-America Luncheon, which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 21, as part of the 2006 NSCAA Convention in Philadelphia, Pa.
