ISU's Joanna Haig tabbed to Preseason team

Iowa State sophomore goalkeeper Joanna Haig was voted to the Preseason All-Big 12 Soccer Team by the league?s head coaches and released by the conference office today.

As a freshman in 2004, Haig was voted to the Big 12 all-newcomer team and notched eight victories, the most for a Cyclone goalkeeper since 1999. Her 1.39 goals-against average ranked second on ISU?s single-season list.

Haig, an Inver Grove Heights, Minn., native, was joined by fellow keeper Kati Jo Spisak of Texas A&M. Other nominees included defenders Laura Munnelly (Colorado), Sasha Andrews (Nebraska) and Tanya Dennis (Nebraska). Four midfielders were chosen in Brittany Timko (Nebraska), Fran Munnelly (Colorado), Elyse Nikonchuk (Mi! ssouri) and Carrie Berend (Texas A&M). Forwards are Kelsey Carpenter (Texas), Caitlin Kennedy (Texas) and Ashlee Pistorius (Texas A&M).

The Cyclones will open the 2005 season Friday, August 26 against Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss.
