SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Following one of best goalkeeping seasons in USC Upstate women's soccer history, Sarah Plantz has been listed in the final NCAA national statistics at No. 15 in the country in total saves with 122.
She tallied a season-high 11 saves in each of her last two games of the season against North Florida and Jacksonville and recorded nine saves or more three other times.
The junior recorded a pair of shutouts, blanking VMI with five saves to open the season and holding Lipscomb scoreless with five saves to give Upstate its only conference victory in the last two seasons.
Along with being ranked in the top 15 in the country in saves, Plantz led the A-Sun in total saves and saves per game at 7.18.
She has also etched her name in the Upstate record book, sitting fifth all-time in career saves with 220, while her 122 saves this fall have her in second all-time for a single season. With her senior season waiting in 2013, Plantz is 155 saves from holding the school's all-time record for saves in a career.
