ANDERSON, S.C. – The Anderson University women’s soccer team continues to rank among the nation’s leaders statistically in the latest release by the NCAA.

Individually, junior Krystal Goss is 59th in assists per game and 62nd nationally with her team-leading seven assists. The Newry, S.C., native tied for fifth in the South Atlantic Conference with eight goals.
Junior net-minder Kaitlyn Neipp started every match in goal this season and was named Second-Team All-SAC, while leading the conference with seven shutouts.
