FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University junior forward Katie Riley has been selected to the 2004 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-America Team.
Riley was named to the 12-member third team. She becomes the second All-American in the history of the young FMU program, joining two-time honoree Katie Roberts.
Riley, a native of Hampstead, Md., tallied 13 goals and nine assists to rank fourth in the Peach Belt Conference in total points. Among her goals were four match-winning scores. She led the Patriots with 66 shots and 43 shots on goal.
She scored all three FMU goals in the Patriots’ two PBC Tournament matches, including a header in overtime to defeat Georgia College & State University.
Riley ranks third in the Peach Belt with 38 career goals.
She helped lead FMU to a 13-4-0 record and the program’s first PBC regular-season championship. The Patriots lost a one-goal decision in the PBC Tournament semifinals, knocking the squad out of consideration for an NCAA Division II national tournament invitation.
In addition to Riley, four other players from PBC schools were named to the All-America squad.
