GREENVILLE, S.C.- A total of four Palm Beach Atlantic women’s soccer players were recognized this week by being named to the NCCAA All-American teams as released by the national office. Seniors Allison Fox and Andrea Jefferson were joined by sophomore Kasey Wyer on the All-American second-team while freshman Karina White was selected to the All-American third-team.
Fox and Jefferson each round out their PBA playing careers with multiple All-American accolades as Fox is named for the third time in her career while Jefferson picks up her second All-American nod in as many seasons.
Fox earned All-American honorable mention honors following her freshman campaign while being named to the third-team following her junior season in 2012. Jefferson was selected as an honorable mention pick following last season. Wyer and White were each selected for the first time in their careers.
The team’s starting goalkeeper all four seasons of her collegiate career, Fox finished 8-7-3 this season while limiting her opponents to a 1.30 goals against average. The Naperville, Ill. native and former Waubonsie Valley High School player made 92 saves in goal on the season while playing nearly 1,600 minutes.
Jefferson closes her career as a four-year starter, spending most of her time in the defensive backfield. The West Palm Beach, Fla. native and local product out of The King’s Academy aided her strong defensive work by chipping in two goals and two assists on the season while leading all players with 1,656 minutes played.
Guiding much of the offense this season was the work of Wyer who played all across the pitch. The Greer, S.C. resident led the team with 10 assists and 24 total points while adding in seven goals. She also produced a pair of game-winning goals while starting 17 matches.
White made an immediate impact on the team in her rookie season and should provide the ‘Fish with a versatile option moving forward. The Tarpon Springs, Fla. native managed five goals and two assists while primarily joining Jefferson along the back line as a defender. As the season moved forward she became more of an attacking option and finished with 12 points on the season.
