    SAN FRANCISCO - The University of Colorado soccer team had two student-athletes honored on Tuesday in the Pac-12 postseason awards voted on by the coaches in the conference. Madi Krauser was named second team all-Pac-12 and Sarah Kinzner was selected to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team.

    Kinzner is the third CU soccer player to be named to the all-freshman team in school history, joining Krauser in 2012 and Brie Hooks in 2013. This is the first postseason honor for Krauser since her freshman year.

    Krauser, a senior defender from Irvine, Calif., started all 20 matches for the Buffs this season, tallying four assists on the year. She also attempted 11 shots. For her career, she ranks third in CU history in assists with 16 and finished with nine goals after playing forward during her first three seasons.

    “Madi had a great season transitioning from the attacking player she has been her whole career to outside back,” head coach Danny Sanchez said. “Her ability to attack out of the back was excellent.”

    Kinzner, a midfielder from Calgary, Alberta, started all 20 matches for CU. She had two assists on the year and scored her first career goal on Nov. 30 against No. 21 Arizona. Kinzner became the first Buff to start every game as a freshman since current junior Alex Huynh in 2013. She is also a member of the U-20 Canadian National Team and helped her country reach the FIFA World Cup quarterfinals in 2014.

    “It is great the coaches in the league noticed Sarah’s qualities,” Sanchez said. “She had a fantastic first season and we look forward to seeing her develop further in the future.”

    CU finished the 2015 season with a 7-10-3 record.
