LONG BEACH, Calif. - Oklahoma State goalkeeper AD Franch has been named to the 2012 TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Season third team, it was announced today.
Franch capped her record-setting career this fall, starting all 20 games for the Cowgirls and recording six shutouts, 79 saves and a 1.07 goals against average. She was named to the All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the fourth time, becoming only the seventh player in Big 12 Conference history to achieve that distinction.
One of the most decorated players in Big 12 and OSU soccer history, Franch is a two-time All-American and a two-time MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist. She owns the OSU career record for shutouts with 38 and led the Big 12 in that category in three of her four seasons. She finished her career with 325 saves to rank second on OSU's all-time list. Franch's 38 shutouts rank sixth all time in NCAA history, and her 8,064:02 minutes in goal rank ninth on the NCAA list.
Franch was on the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Season first team in 2010, but the publication did not name a Team of the Season in 2011.
