MADISON, Wis. (BVM) — Yesterday the Big Ten released the awards and honors for the 2020-2021 women’s soccer season.
The University of Wisconsin had four players named to an All-Big Ten team. Midfielder Maia Cella was named to the All-Big Ten First Team and Sammy Kleedtke was named to the All-Big Ten Second Team.
Senior goalkeeper Jordyn Bloomer was also awarded first-team honors and also won her second straight Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year award. Bloomer is the first Badger to ever win the award twice. Bloomer is coming off a season where she was not only goalkeeper of the year but also first-team All-Big Ten and first-team All-American. Bloomer doubled down this season, helping lead Wisconsin to a 6-3-3 record.
During her 12 games this season, Bloomer has recorded 38 saves over with a .826 save percentage.
In the Badgers most recent game against Northwestern, Bloomer had two big saves in a penalty shootout that helped the Badgers advance to the Big Ten Tournament semifinals. Tonight she will look to help the Badgers move on to the Big Ten Tournament championship by beating Rutgers.
