YORK, Pa. — As one of only two women's lacrosse players in the history of the Capital Athletic Conference to be chosen Player of the Year more than once and earn first-team all-conference honors all four seasons she played, Goucher's Kristin Carey Schulze certainly deserved her spot on the CAC Silver Anniversary Women's Lacrosse Team that was revealed today.
The CAC, the conference to which Goucher belonged for 16 years before it joined the Landmark Conference in 2007-08, is in its 25th year of intercollegiate varsity competition. To recognize the occasion, the CAC is announcing a Silver Anniversary Team in 19 championship sports over the course of the 2014-15 academic year.
Each Silver Anniversary Team will feature 25 former or current standout student-athletes and the process which determined the make-up of the teams was primarily based on season-ending conference awards as voted by the conference's head coaches.
Statistically, Schulze's best season at Goucher was as a sophomore in 1996 when she supplied the Gophers with 77 goals and 26 assists for a total of 103 points, but she trailed teammate Courtney Crangi in all three categories.
Schulze was the leading scorer during each of her final two seasons. In 1997, she accumulated 65 goals and was the Division III national leader in assists (34) and points (99); in 1998, her 43 goals and 31 assists added up to 74 points. In both of those seasons, she was named CAC Player of the Year, although she shared the honor with Gia Trionfo from St. Mary's (Md.) in 1998.
Schulze remains the Goucher women's lacrosse program's all-time leader in goals (251) and points (360), and ranks second in career assists (109).
