Tousley helps create history with Knox College

Dec 4th 2016

Jaqui Tousljacqui-tousleyey has once again made headlines by helping re-write the history books at Knox College for Women’s Soccer. For the first time in the program’s history, the team earned the title “Midwest Conference Champions” while being the first team at Knox to go unbeaten all season since 1919.

This winning season included their impressive winning streak by defeating all opponents who were put up against Knox College in the Midwest Conference Tournament, thus “doing the double” by becoming the Midwest Conference Tournament Champions as well. This win gave them the automatic qualification into their first appearance at the NCAA National Tournament.

Knox College’s stout defence, which only conceded 3 goals, improved to a record of 19-0-1. This record helped earn the team a National Ranking of #25 and regional ranking of #3.

The team experienced their first loss at the NCAA tournament against last years national finalist Washington University in St. Louis (#8).

Despite the loss, the Woman’s Knox College team broke or tied 7 Records including; leading the nation in Goals Against Average (0.15), being second in Nation for Goals Saved (0.936) and outscoring their opponents 65-3!!

We at SDFA are extremely proud of our impressive alumni, and wish Tousley and everyone luck in their upcoming season.
