Tiffany Cameron might go down as one of the most accomplished members in Ohio State women’s soccer history.
In what was already a record-setting year for the senior forward, Cameron was named a National Soccer Coaches Association of America second-team All-American selection Friday.
“I’m truly blessed to receive this honor,” Cameron said in a released statement.
“I worked really hard from the time I was a freshman until now and I’m proud of what we have been able to accomplish as a team. My coaches and teammates helped me get to where I am today and I can’t thank them enough for helping me achieve this award.”
Cameron leaves campus as the program’s all-time leader in scoring with 40 goals and the all-time leader in points with 96.
This season, the two-time first team All-Big Ten honoree netted a school-record 21 goals – eight more than the previous mark.
“She set a goal a year ago to score 20 goals and had the courage to put it out there,” OSU coach Lori Walker in a released statement.
“She changed her training, worked toward that goal and the support she received from her teammates, specifically in the attack from (senior forward) Lauren Granberg and (freshman forward) Michela Paradiso, helped set her up for this.”
Cameron helped guide the Buckeyes to a 16-4-2 record, a Big Ten Tournament championship and the program’s fourth straight berth in the NCAA Tournament.
OSU played Oakland to a 1-1 draw in the first round of the NCAAs before falling on penalty kicks, 3-1.
