Two Kansas soccer players earn Big 12 postseason honors

For the eighth time in the last nine seasons, multiple Kansas soccer players earned Big 12 postseason soccer honors.

Senior Ceri Holland was named to the 2020 All-Big 12 Second Team and Moira Kelley was listed on the Big 12 All-Freshman Team, as the conference announced the soccer postseason awards on Wednesday. Selections for the All-Big 12 teams were voted on by the league’s head coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own players.

Holland is a second-team selection for the second year in a row. She was tied for the Big 12 lead with three goals and three assists in KU’s nine games this season. Holland also scored two game-winning goals in 2020, which tied for fifth in the conference.

Kelley, who is from Overland Park, started all nine of KU’s matches on the defensive end and played every minute of the season. As a team, Kansas tied for third in the Big 12 with four shutouts and tied for fourth in the conference in goals allowed with eight. KU’s 92 shots allowed were the second-lowest mark in the league.

Kansas finished fourth in the Big 12 with a 5-3-1 record in the pandemic-shortened season.
