SH Prep grad Davidson, three others honored by soccer site


Three Stanford players earned Postseason Best XI honors and one Cardinal player received Freshman Best XI recognition, as announced Monday by the website.

Andi Sullivan was named to the first team for the second consecutive season, while Maddie Bauer and Jane Campbell earned second-team honors. The co-captain trio also earned NSCAA All-America recognition earlier this year.

Midfielder Tierna Davidson was selected to the Freshman Best XI first team.

The group helped lead Stanford to its second consecutive Pac-12 title and an 18-2-1 record – the team's 11th consecutive season with 15 or more victories. The Cardinal has won six of the past eight conference titles. Stanford earned the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Sullivan was one of two Pac-12 players selected to the first team after being the only conference representative a year ago. She had a career year with the Cardinal and was the only collegiate player in the country called into multiple senior U.S. Women's National Team camps during the season, making four starts with the team.

Sullivan registered career highs and led Stanford in points (29), goals (11) and game-winning goals (4). She was named a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist for the second straight year, Pac-12 Player of the Year and earned All-Pac-12 first team honors for the third consecutive season.

Bauer started every game at center defender in 2016 and helped Stanford register nine shutouts and limit opponents to 0.79 goals per game. She anchored the Cardinal's defense that held opponents to one goal or fewer in 73-of-88 games during her career.

Bauer is a 2016 MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist, three-time NSCAA All-Pacific Region first team and four-time All-Pac-12 selection, including being named to the first team in 2016. She is a 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-American and a 2015 NSCAA Scholar All-American – the only Pac-12 player named to either of those teams. Bauer was also named a 2016 Senior CLASS Award Top-30 finalist.

Campbell completed her career as one of the most accomplished goalkeepers in Stanford history and earned a call-up to the senior U.S. women's national team during the season. She ranks in the top-five in multiple Stanford career categories, including minutes played (1st, 7431:34), shutouts (t-1st, 35), saves (t-3rd, 210) and goals-against average (5th, 0.65).

Campbell is a three-time All-Pacific region selection, three-time All-Pac-12 and the 2015 Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year. She registered 14 shutouts in 2014, which is tied for the second-most in Stanford single-season history and 16th in NCAA Division I history.

Davidson had an outstanding freshman campaign, starting all 21 games in the midfield. She registered six points on two goals and two assists and excelled at maintaining possession through the midfield and distributing. Davidson earned All-Pac-12 second team honors and was selected to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team.
