Haig Garners NSCAA Central Region Honors

The sophomore's third-team selection is the first-ever regional honor in ISU history

Iowa State sophomore goalkeeper Joanna Haig picked up another postseason award on Friday as she was named third team all-Central Region by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Haig is the first all-region honoree in Iowa State soccer history.

On Tuesday, the Inver Grove Heights, Minn., native was selected as one of 30 women to qualify for the U.S. Under-20 Women's National Team pool. Haig will participate in a nine-day training camp from Jan. 2-10 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., as the team begins its accelerated preparation for the CONCACAF Women's U-20 Final Qualifying Tournament.

Haig anchored a Cyclone defense that helped garner the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2005. Eventual NCAA champion Portland defeated ISU in the first round of the Lincoln, Neb., regional on Nov. 11.

The sophomore was named second team all-Big 12 by the league and finished at least in the top two in four major regular season statistical categories, including save percentage (1st, .836), saves (2, 97), saves per game (2nd, 5.11) and shutouts (T1st, 7).

Haig also set new Iowa State single-season records for shutouts (7), goals-against-average (1.15), minutes (1943) and tied the school record for wins with 11.
