Vidal Honored by College Soccer 360 and Big 12 Conference

Aug. 30, 2011

LAWRENCE, Kan – For the second-straight week, a University of Kansas soccer freshman has been honored by the conference as Ingrid Vidal was named the Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Week Tuesday for games played Aug. 22-28. Vidal also earned a spot on College Soccer 360’s Primetime Performers Honor Roll.

Last week, KU freshman Jamie Fletcher was named conference rookie of the week on Aug. 23.

Down 1-0 with only 10 minutes left against 20th-ranked San Diego on Sunday, Vidal came through in the clutch for the Jayhawks as she netted a pair of goals in a four minute stretch to propel KU to the 2-1 upset. The victory gave Kansas a 2-0 mark at the San Diego Tournament, after downing USC, 3-2, on Friday. In that contest, Vidal added an assist. The two goals were the first of Vidal’s career as she moved into a tie for fifth in the conference in total goals.

Kansas concludes its three-match road stint when it travels to Missouri State on Friday, Sept. 2 for a 7 p.m. contest. The Jayhawks then return home to host South Dakota State on Sunday, Sept. 4. Kick-off is slated for 1 p.m. at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex.
