Senior midfielder Kristie Smilanich (Kalamazoo, Mich./Christian)
has already reached double figures in points for the fourth consecutive season with
a team-high 10 points (4-2=10) to date in two matches. Smilanich, who holds the distinction
of being Ferris State's first All-American in women's soccer after receiving Daktronics
NCAA-II All-America First-Team recognition a season ago, has presently accumulated
77 career points (31-15=77) in 56 matches. She trails only Emily Rogers (2000-03;
45-29=119 pts.) for the top spot among the Bulldogs' career scoring leaders.
Ferris State has already compiled seven goals in its first two matches this fall after
garnering three in its initial two a season ago. The Bulldogs' six goals at Kentucky
Wesleyan (8/24) represents the most since last season when FSU scored 11 times in
a 11-1 conference home decision against Northwood (9/13).
Junior forward Tammy Unsworth (White Lake, Mich./Walled Lake Northern) is four points shy of registering her 50th career point. Unsworth, who currently
has one point (0-1=1) in two matches this campaign, has posted 46 points (17-12=46)
in 38 career matches to date.
