The Cougar women’s soccer team was riding high last season with their highest ranking ever in the top 10. They were unable to quite maintain that success for the entire season as they bowed out in the second round of the NCAA tournament. One of the reasons that they were unable to keep up that pace was an injury to star goalkeeper Ella Dederick. A silver lining to this is that Dederick has now been granted a sixth year of eligibility for 2019 for an extension of the clock waiver by the NCAA.
As a junior Dederick was selected third team All-Pac-12. She ended the season with an incredible 11 shutout, whichwas 2nd most in WSU history. She has been a three year starter since arriving from Newbury Park high school in Camarillo CA. Going into her senior year Dederick ranks second all-time in WSU in wins, 3rd in shutouts, and 5th in saves. With the combination of Dederick and star forward Morgan Weaver coach Todd Shulenberger’s squad should be a force to be reckoned with this coming fall.
