2010 Season - Moesle and Johnson pull down MVP honors

Junior Kelly Johnson was selected as the Most Valuable Defensive Player for the 2010 Augustana women's soccer team. Johnson was a key member of the Vikings' defense that shut out 14 opponents, including eight straight to start the season.

Sophomore Taylor Moesle (Carl Sandburg HS, Orland Park, Ill.) was voted Offensive MVP and junior Kelly Johnson (Homewood-Flossmoor HS, Flossmoor, Ill.) was voted Defensive MVP for the Augustana women’s soccer team in the recently completed 2010 season. After another successful regular season, the Vikings returned to the NCAA Division III tournament for a second straight year, and for the fourth time under head coach Scott Mejia. Their overall record was 13-2-5, with a 4-1-2 record in College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin play, good for a third place finish in conference.

Moesle was the leading scorer for the Vikings with twelve goals and four assists for a total of 28 points. Four of her goals were game winning goals as the team outscored their opponents 48-11 on the season. Moesle made the single season top 10 list for goals scored and points, and is already on the career top ten list for goals (21, tied for 10th) as a sophomore. Moesle was also selected to the CCIW All-Conference team.

Johnson was a key member of the stout Vikings defense that allowed only 11 goals in 20 matches this year. The Vikings shut out 14 of their opponents, including eight straight shutouts to start the season, and posted a 0.56 goals-against-average.

Freshman midfielder Amanda Tucker (Crete-Monee HS, Crete, Ill.) won the most improved player award. Tucker appeared in 5 games and had 2 shots during the season.

Junior Ashley Higuchi (Smoky Hills HS, Aurora, Colo.) received the Iron Viking Award. She tied for second on the team with six goals and was tied for the team lead in assists with four, giving her 16 points on the season. Higuchi was also selected to the CCIW All-Conference second team.
