Campbell Receives Two National Awards
Nov. 1, 2006
GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina goalkeeper Amber Campbell has been named along with Nick Cardenas (San Diego State) as the NSCAA National Players of the Week for Nov. 1. This is the first time an ECU player has won this prestigious award. In addition to being named to the NSCAA, Campbell was named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week, an award given to the best players in the nation for that week.
Over the last week Campbell held UTEP and Colorado College scoreless during 169 minutes of play. The dominant play helped ECU claim two wins and boost its seeding going into the Conference USA tournament. On Friday, she tied the single-season school record with her seventh shutout by recording a 2-0 victory over UTEP.
ECU sophomore defender Nicole Moore was the first Pirate to be named to the Soccer Buzz Team of the Week for her play during the week of Aug. 28. During that time, Campbell was in the midst three consecutive shutouts against in-state opponents.
Campbell's excellent season has moved her up in the ECU goalkeeping record books. Campbell has recorded seven shutouts to tie her for first place for a single season. Her career goals against average is currently 1.225 which is good for first place all-time. In addition, her current 0.67 goals against average for the season beats the previous mark of 1.10 set in 2003.
