Stanford's Taylor heads All-Freshman team
December 16th, 2008 8AM



[SOCCER AMERICA AWARDS] Stanford forward Lindsay Taylor, who tied for the team lead with 16 goals for the NCAA Division I semifinalist, is the 2008 Soccer America Freshman of the Year.

Taylor, a 5-7 forward from nearby Los Altos, scored four multi-goal games, including a blistering three-goal performance against Santa Clara, for the Cardinal.

"Scoring 16 goals as a freshman is an extraordinary accomplishment," said Stanford head coach Paul Ratcliffe. "I can't say enough about Lindsay."

Taylor was joined by Cardinal teammates Teresa Noyola and Camille Levin on the Soccer America All-Freshman first team.

"She is a great team player, as well," added Ratcliffe. "She really helped our team emerge as one of the top teams in the country."

Taylor was just one of several forwards to have sensational freshman seasons.
