Kat Norris Named To NSCAA All-South Second Team
Dec. 4, 2006
GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina defender junior Kat Norris has been named to the NSCAA All-South Second-Team. This is the first time Norris has received this award and she joins eight other Lady Pirates of the past in receiving this award.
Norris, a co-captain of the Lady Pirates, was named first-team all-conference during the 2006 campaign. Her stellar season as the backbone to the ECU defense, played a big role in keeping the opponents scoring at an ECU record low. Norris was named second-team all conference as a sophomore and received C-USA All-Tournament team honors. This season, Norris was a big part in shutting out four conference opponents. Throughout her career, she has started all but one game.
"I am very happy for Kat to receive this honor," said head coach Rob Donnenwirth. "Our team posted its best goals against average in our program's history and Kat was a big part of our team's success."
In recognition for her hard work and excellent defensive play, the soccer team and coaches voted Norris defensive player-of-the year.
