March 28, 2005

LAWRENCE, Kan. – FC Indiana of the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) has announced that two members of the University of Kansas soccer team will join the team over the summer.

Sophomore Holly Gault and junior Caroline Smith, who helped lead the Jayhawks to their first ever Big 12 Championship during the fall, will both suit up for the team this summer. FC Indiana, which recruits the top collegiate and international players, is based out of Goshen, Indiana, and is led by head coach Shek Borkowski.

Gault, a sophomore from Spring Hill, Kan., anchored a young Jayhawk defense, which surrendered only 13 goals all season and finished ninth in the country with a team goals against average of 0.55. Gault finished fourth on the team with 13 points during the season, tallying four goals and five assists during the year, including a career-high two assists in the Big 12 Championship clinching match against Iowa State on Oct. 29. Following the season, Gault was selected as a first team All-American by both the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and SoccerBuzz.

For the second consecutive season, Caroline Smith garnered All-America honors, as she was named a third-team performer by the NSCAA and an honorable selection by SoccerBuzz. Smith, a junior from Edina, Minn., who entered the season as the program’s all-time leading scorer, led KU in scoring for the third consecutive season. Smith topped the Jayhawks in goals (11), assists (10) and points (32). During the season, Smith collected three or more points in six matches and set a school record with the least time elapsed between goals when she tallied a pair of goals 48 seconds apart on Oct. 3 in 3-0 win over Baylor.
