Pfeiffer's Kaley Hyatt Named USA South Goalkeeper of the Year; Women's Soccer Claims 15 Postseason Awards

Misenheimer, N.C. (Oct. 31, 2019) – Pfeiffer University senior goalkeeper Kaley Hyatt was named the USA South Goalkeeper of the Year and the women's soccer team captured 15 total postseason USA South awards the league has announced.

Hyatt, a senior from St. Cloud, Fla. earned the Goalkeeper of the Year award after posting a 0.77 goals against average this season.  Hyatt has allowed just nine goals during the 2019 campaign while making 46 saves on the season.  She currently stands at 10-3 on the season and has four shutouts and three combined shutouts. She currently ranks second in the Pfeiffer record book for the lowest single-season goals against average.  Her current save percentage of .836 is also second in program history.

Senior Hailey Metzger (Naples, Fla.), junior Gabby Bosak (Charleston, S.C.) and sophomore Morgan Cecil (St. Cloud, Fla.) join Hyatt in making the USA South All-Conference First Team.

Metzger has posted three goals and made two assists this season, including two game-winning goals, the first coming in a season-opening 1-0 nonconference win against Piedmont and the second coming in a 4-0 win at Averett.  Her other goal came in a 2-0 at Southern Virginia.

Bosak earned the first-team honor after supplying a team-best seven assists on the season. She also has added one goal in a 4-0 win at Meredith.  On the year, Bosak has notched two assists on two separate occasions, with the first coming on Sept. 5 in a 4-0 win at Southern Virginia and the second in an 8-0 home win over Mary Baldwin.

Cecil has been the field anchor for the Falcon defense that has allowed a paltry 15 goals on the season with a .93 GAA.  In conference play, the Falcon defense has given up just three goals in USA South play.  Individually, she has supplied two assists on the season, her first coming in the 2-1 win over Edgewood and the second coming on Oct. 23 in a 1-0 division-clinching win over Greensboro.

Pfeiffer also had several players earn USA South East Division honors.  Forwards Cayci Eaton (Harrisburg, N.C.) and sophomore Mackenzie Pruitt (Havelock, N.C.) joined junior defender Meredith Manson (Auburndale, Fla.) all earned first-team divisional honors.

Pruitt leads the Falcons with nine goals while Eaton has netted eight on the season.  Pruitt also has supplied six assists while Eaton has logged three. Pruitt currently stands with a team-best 24 points while Eaton has 19 points on the season.

Manson has scored five goals on the season, none more important that her strike against Greensboro that eventually captured the Falcons' first ever divisional title as a member of the USA South.  She also has one assist on the season to bring her season points total to 11.

Midfielder Sophia Griffin (Durham, N.C.) and senior defender Krystal Jaimes (Asheboro, N.C.) was tabbed second-team East Division selections.  Griffin has one assist on the season, with it coming on Oct. 5 at Meredith.  Jaimes, who has flanked first-team selection Morgan Cecil, has been a solid contributor to helping the Falcon defense become one of the stingiest in league play.  Jaimes has also logged a pair of assists on the season, with the first coming in a 3-1 win over Guilford and the second in the 8-0 rout of Mary Baldwin.
