Sarah Kelly and Olivia Barnhill Named USC Scholar All-Americans

KANSAS CITY, MO. – Senior goalkeeper Olivia Barnhill (New York, N.Y.) and junior back Sarah Kelly (Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J.) two key members of the Williams College NCAA DIII Champion women's soccer team have been accorded Academic All-America honors by the USC. 

"I am thrilled to see our players be named to the All America team to represent our program," Ephs' head coach Michelyne Pinard said. "We have an incredible team that is focused on creating a team championship experience, first and foremost, so individual accolades are not our focus, however, these two student-athletes certainly are great representatives for us and they are very deserving of such wonderful recognition by coaches from around the country."

Kelly started 20 of the 24 games this fall for the Ephs and was a key member of the Eph backline that allowed but 12 goals on the year. She was a Third Team USC All-American, and USC Academic All-American and a First Team All-NESCAC selection. She was also a USC First Team All-New England selection. Barnhill started all 24 games in goal this season and allowed 11 goals for a goals against average of 0.45. In 2,203.16 minutes Barnhill made 78 saves to register a save percentage of .876. Barnhill 's season record was 18-1-5 and she recorded 11 shutouts. Barnhill was a Second Team All-New England selection and a First Team All-NESCAC selection. 

Both Kelley and Barnhill were named Academic All-American by the USC and to the USC East Region Scholar Teams this fall as well as Academic All-NESCAC. 

Barnhill turned aside three Middlebury PKs in the NCAA title game shootout to help the Ephs repeat as NCAA champions and claim their third title in the last four years.
