Clinton CC soccer standout an All-American

PLATTSBURGH — Emily Schultz, standout goalkeeper for the Clinton Community College Cougars, has been named a First Team All-American in National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Women’s Soccer.

Schultz is the third Clinton CC athlete to achieve All-American status in women’s soccer in nine years.

The former Plattsburgh High School star recorded 14 shutouts and 341 saves in 30 games for the Clinton Cougars.

“This accomplishment is a result of her development in the local soccer clubs and her high school. We’ve seen her in action the last two years and watched her develop into one of the top goalies in the country,” CCC Head Coach Donna Dixon said.

“We (Assistant Coach Mel Defayette and Dixon) are extremely happy for Emily.”

There are 98 Division III teams in the NJCAA and being named one of the top 10 players in the Country is a huge achievement.

“This is definitely a great accomplishment considering she played for one of the smallest community colleges in the country,” Dixon added.
