Menlo's Swart named to All-American women's soccer team

 

Menlo College goalkeeper Kaylin Swart stormed onto the scene as a sophomore and immediately left her mark on the Oaks, the GSAC and now the nation as she was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

The NAIA revealed its women's soccer All-America teams earlier this week.

Swart, a transfer from AIB College of Business (Iowa), stepped into the starting role and anchored a defense that ranked second in the GSAC in goals allowed per game (0.85) and personally boasted an impressive 0.87 goals against average, the best mark in a single season in Menlo history.

Swart finished her sophomore campaign with six shutouts, good for second in a single-season in Menlo history, and sent away 96 shots, ranking her third in the single season record book.

She is the second player in the last two seasons to earn NAIA Honorable Mention All-American honors joining Kayla Cisneroz who earned the award in 2014.

Menlo College women's soccer finished the 2015 season 8-7-5 overall and advanced to the semifinal round of GSAC tournament in its first year in the conference.
