  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers junior Carli Lloyd (Delran, NJ) has been named to the Soccerbuzz Preseason Elite 12 All-America Team for the second consecutive year, the group has announced.

    Lloyd, a midfielder, is a two-time first-team all-BIG EAST selection after leading RU with 31 points (12 G, 7 A) last season, earning All-America honors from Soccerbuzz. One of 15 finalists for the 2002 Hermann Trophy, awarded to the top female collegiate soccer player in the nation, Lloyd was also named an All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), Soccerbuzz and Collegesoccer.com following her freshman season. In addition, she was the only unanimous choice to this year’s Preseason All-BIG EAST Team, and in 2002 she was named the Preseason BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year as well as a preseason all-conference selection.

    As a team, the Scarlet Knights were picked eighth in the Soccerbuzz Preseason Mid-Atlantic Region Poll. Rutgers also received votes in the Preseason National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Top 25 Poll.

    Rutgers, under the direction of fourth-year head coach Glenn Crooks, will begin the 2003 season on Friday, Aug. 29, with a home non-conference match against Providence at 7:00 p.m.
