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

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).
