Cal Poly's Barry, Bonsall, Johnson, Kreutz Earn All-Conference Honors


SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Four Cal Poly women's soccer players earned All-Big West Conference accolades Wednesday.

A trio of Mustangs — senior Kendra Bonsall and sophomores Caitlyn Kreutz and Chelsea Barry — were chosen for all-conference second-team status, while Jessica Johnson made the all-freshman team.

Bonsall, a midfielder from Santa Cruz, finished her career having played in 70 games, including 60 starts (tying former All-American Brooke Flamson for the 19th-most in school history).

Bonsall tallied the game-winning goal in the 69th minute of the Mustangs' 2-1 victory over Hawai'i on Sept. 30, and recorded a 43rd-minute equalizer (on a rebound of a Barry shot) in a 2-1 loss at Long Beach State on Oct. 6. She also was part of the go-ahead strike (6') in the 2-1 win over Seattle on Sept. 25, as she and Johnson combined to assist Kreutz.

Also an attacking and defending player at different points of her Cal Poly career, Bonsall helped the Mustangs earn four shutouts in 2016 (23 for her career). She played 13 complete games this fall, ending her career with 5,103 minutes played, along with six goals and three assists.

It was the third overall appearance on an all-conference list for Bonsall, as she was an all-freshman team selection in 2013 and garnered an honorable mention in 2014.

Both Bonsall and Kreutz were also chosen to the Marquette Invitational All-Tournament Team on Sept. 18.

Kreutz, a forward from Clovis, finished with a team-leading four goals and three assists. She started 17 of her 19 games, placing an additional seven shots on goal during the season.

Barry, a defender from Danville, played all but nine minutes on the season — 1,771 — a team-high total aside from freshman goalkeeper Sophia Brown (who went the duration).

She won the TopDrawerSoccer National Collegiate Goal of the Week award on Oct. 19 (winning 58 percent of 11,167 votes) thanks to her 82nd-minute free kick from distance in the 1-1 draw with UC Santa Barbara six days earlier. Barry also finished with three assists and took seven corner kicks.

Johnson finished her first season with the Mustangs with two goals and three assists in 17 matches (10 of which were starts), plus six more shots on goal over her 924 minutes in the attack.
