ST. LOUIS -- Eight Saint Louis University women’s soccer student-athletes, including three first-team selections, earned Atlantic 10 Conference postseason honors as announced by the league office Thursday.
In addition, sixth-year head coach Katie Shields was named Coach of the Year after guiding the Billikens to a school-record-tying 16 wins and the A-10 regular-season title with a 10-0-0 conference record.
Junior defender Alli Klug was tabbed Defensive Player of the Year for a second straight season, giving Saint Louis three consecutive recipients after Kacey Bright won the award in 2016. Klug joins Courtney Hulcer (2005, 2006) as a two-time A-10 Defensive Player of the Year from SLU.
Junior goalkeeper Olivia Silverman and junior midfielder Courtney Reimer joined Klug on the All-Conference first team. Silverman’s selection gives Saint Louis the A-10’s first-team All-Conference goalkeeper for a third consecutive season, following Mary Niehaus in 2016 and 2017. Reimer garnered her third A-10 postseason honor after making the 2017 second team and the 2016 All-Rookie team.
Senior forward Maddie Pokorny earned a spot on the All-Conference second team for a third straight year and was joined on the squad by freshman forward Hannah Friedrich and sophomore midfielder Olivia Petit. Freshman defender Isabel Burkejoined Friedrich on the All-Rookie team as the Billikens placed two players on that unit for a second successive year.
