PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State freshman Carly Dobratz has been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-West Region third team.
"We are all delighted for Carly," said Head Coach Matt Potter. "Carly has made quite the impact both on our team and obviously across the region. I am delighted for her considering her season was cut short by injury. It goes to show the talent she has and the depth of our team to still have the successes we had. It serves as a great testament to the efforts of such a keen competitor and as another indication of the progress and direction we all believe Cougar soccer is heading."
Dobratz started in 15 matches for WSU and recorded three goals and five assists in her debut season. She led all Cougar scorers with 42 total shots and scored the game-winning goal in the Cougars' 1-0 win over archrival Washington Oct. 8. For her efforts, Dobratz was named to the Pacific-10 All-Conference second team as well as the All-Freshman team. Most recently, she earned recognition from Soccer Buzz Magazine when the national publication named Dobratz to their All-West Region third team and All-Freshman team.
The Cougars finished in fourth place in the Pac-10 with a 9-7-4 overall record and a 4-3-2 record in conference play. WSU's ten shutouts in 2006 tied a school record. The Cougars also set a single season record for fewest goals allowed as only 15 goals slipped past the WSU defensive line.
