Naeher honored

The honors keep rolling in for Seymour's Alyssa Naeher.
Two days after the Penn State junior was named the goalkeeper on the National Soccer Coaches Association of American Division I All-American team, Naeher was named the outstanding goalkeeper in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup.
Naeher allowed just one goal in five matches to lead the U.S. to the gold medal.
In Sunday's final in Santiago, Chile, Korea outshot the U.S. 15-9 but only managed a goal in injury time by Cha Hu Nam.
Sydney Leroux and Alex Morgan had first-half goals for the U.S. in the championship match.
Naeher had a 1.11 goals against average and six shutouts in 19 games this season at Penn State.
Naeher, who had eight shutouts for the U-20 national team in 2008, is one of three members of the team in the running for U.S. Soccer Young Female Athlete of the Year award. Fan voting on the site ends Monday.
