KANSAS CITY, Kan.- While the season may have come and gone, the accolades continue to pile up for Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s soccer player Angie Kuhn. A standout not only on the soccer pitch as evidenced by her numerous athletic-performance based awards, Kuhn has now also been honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) as a member of the Scholar All-South Region team.
A nursing major and a native of North Fort Meyers, Florida, Kuhn was awarded a spot on the All-South Region 2nd-Team after posting a solid showing both on the field and in the classroom.
“We all are very proud of Angie and her accomplishments,” said head coach James Kryger.
“This award goes very well with her all region award a few weeks ago as itencompasses the entire student-athlete. If you have been out to see us play you will be able to see that Angie displays some of the finest soccer talent on the field, but what is often not seen is her dedication to her off-the-field pursuits in the nursing field,” continued Kryger.
Kuhn was honored by the NSCAA as an All-Region 3rd Team member a few weeks ago after posting team-high totals of 15 goals and four assists in leading the Sailfish to 11 wins including a pair at the NCCAA National Tournament.
“This award is a true reflection of her ability to not only balance school and soccer but to do both real well. We are ecstatic she has be recognized in such a tough south region by the NSCAA and this is indicative of the athlete we continually try to recruit at PBA. Although we hate to see them leave we can’t wait to see how well they will do when they graduate with the skills they display on and off the playing fields,” concluded Kryger.
