Saturday, November 3, 2012 - 3:04 am

Sophomore Kim Kenline (Akron, NY) became the first member of the Clarkson University Women's Soccer team to attain Liberty League First-Team All-Star status since 2006, being named as the conference's top goaltender to highlight the Golden Knights' conference all-star selections.

Kenline and senior defender Ellen Heenan (Bridgeport, NY) were chosen as the team's Liberty League All-Star representatives, with Heenan gaining Liberty League Honorable Mention notice.

With a goals against average of 0.92 per game, Kenline set a Clarkson program record for lowest GAA among full-time starting goalkeepers, and her figure is only topped by Brianna Thibeau's mark last season, with whom she split time in the Clarkson goal in 2011. Kenline posted a .870 save percentage as well, the best single-season figure at Clarkson since 1995, with her 94 saves leading the conference by a wide margin.

Kenline was the first member of the Clarkson Women's Soccer team to be chosen to the Liberty League First-Team since 2006. Striker Jinna Stugart was the Golden Knights' lone first-teamer since the conference became known as the Liberty League in 2004.

Senior defender/midfielder Ellen Heenan was named a Liberty League All-Star for the first time in her three years at Clarkson. Heenan started 14 of the 16 games in 2012 and, despite playing a defensive role, took 18 shots to rank among the team leaders. Her prowess on defense helped the Golden Knights allow only 14 goals all season, the fourth fewest in the Liberty League, and among the bottom fifth in the country.
