ASU Women's Soccer Lindsay Johansen selected to participate in Canada Excel Camp

Posted:

From Arkansas State University

Arkansas State women's soccer freshman Lindsay Johansen has been selected to participate in the Canada U-20 National Excel camp in Portland, Ore., from March 16-25.


Johansen is one of 23 players selected to the camp, which will feature women's soccer players from the 1994-1996 age groups from Canada. The group will also play a friendly match against the University of Portland on March 22.


Johansen is the first Arkansas State women's soccer player to be selected to participate in a national team camp at any level.


"To be the very first Arkansas State soccer player to be selected into a national team setting is an incredible feat," ASU soccer coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge said. "This is another example of the hard work this team is putting in. For this I congratulate Lindsay and thank her teammates. Lindsay is a very fierce competitor blessed with athleticism, speed and power. I have no doubt in my mind that one day we will see her playing for Canada at the World Cup. We as a Red Wolves soccer family are excited for Lindsay and remain grateful to the Canadian Soccer Association."


Johansen was a pivotal piece in one of the best season in ASU women's soccer history in 2012. As a true freshman, she was one of just four players to start in all 20 games and helped anchor a defensive back line that recorded seven shutouts, the most in school history. ASU also gave up just 10 goals in nine home games and had a 7-2 record at the ASU Soccer Complex.


A-State also set the school record for most wins in a season (11), the most wins at home (7) and the longest home winning streak (6).
