KOSLOSKY MOVES UP TO FOURTH NATIONALLY IN SAVES

October 4, 2011

DOVER, Del. – The NCAA released their women’s soccer statistics and leader boards late Monday evening and Delaware State University freshman goalie Katelyn Koslosky (East Islip, N.Y.) improved from fifth place to fourth in the saves category with 93.

 

Despite missing the first two games of the season due to an injury, Koslosky is just one save behind Manhattan’s Kara Davis and Texas Southern’s Rebecca Hajny, who are tied for second with 94 saves.  The freshman is also just 25 saves behind national leader, Bianca Garza, who plays for Prairie View A&M and has 118 saves on the season.

 

“Katelyn continues to be truly spectacular this season,” commented DSU head coach Nitan Soni.  “This past weekend she posted a shutout against Great West Conference defending champion Houston Baptist.  This isn’t an easy feat considering we’ve played the last three of four games in overtime, with two in double overtime, with Katelyn recording over 220 minutes in three days of play.”

 

With four regular season games remaining on the schedule, Koslosky is 18 saves away from breaking into the DSU single season top-five category.

 

“Katelyn is a talented goalie and for her to be doing as well as she is as a starting freshman, means there are great things for her and our team in the future,” Soni remarked.

 

Within the rankings, Koslosky is also 78th in the country with a .823 save percentage.  La Salle’s Melissa Sanger is the nationwide leader with a perfect save percentage at 1.000.

 

Koslosky’s totals were boosted on Friday, Sept. 23 as the goalie recorded 22 saves, more than doubling her previous career high of 10, in a 4-3 overtime loss at Rider.  Her 22 saves tied Jessica Gray’s mark set in 2003 for second all-time in school history.  Gray posted a school record 24 saves during the same season.

 

The Hornets continue Great West Conference play at NJIT in Newark, N.J. on Friday at 6 p.m.
