Shae Fournier Named Second Team All-American
June 16, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana's Shae Fournier has been named Second Team All-American for the 2014 season as announced today by the ACWCP. This award follows Fournier's senior season where she became the all-time leading scorer and assist leader in IU water polo history. This is Shae's second All-American nod after she was named to the Third Team in 2012.
Named CWPA Player of the Year, Fournier became Indiana's all-time leading scorer during the 2014 season with 302 goals. Fournier is one of only five women's collegiate water polo players to ever reach 300 goals in their career.
Fournier, who currently holds the record at Indiana for most goals scored in a season with 95, and most goals scored in a single-game with six, scored 82 goals during her senior campaign, which is second-most all-time in a single season at IU.
The All-American and four-time All-Conference selection earned 19 weekly Player of the Week honors from the CWPA, a conference record. She has also set a new Indiana all-time assist record with 154, passing Brooke Zimmerman's (2006-08) previous record of 151. She also ranks second in career steals (306) in the IU record books.
With less than one minute on the clock, Fournier scored the game-winner against Princeton in the CWPA Championships, earning her team the eighth and final spot in the NCAA Tournament and earning herself Tournament MVP honors. It gave the Hoosiers their third appearance in the NCAA Championship, and the second of Fournier's career.
Shae joins Kristin Stanford as the only two Indiana water polo players to be named ACWCP Second Team or higher. Stanford, who held the career scoring record at Indiana before Fournier broke it this past season, was named Second Team All-American in 1999.
Shae Fournier was named to the All-American Third Team following her sophomore season in 2012 where she put together one of the most productive years in program history headlined by a single-season school record of 95 goals. She also finished the season with team-highs of 86 steals and 95 field blocks, to go along with 41 assists and 51 earned exclusions.
Fournier currently wrapped up a week-long tour of China where she competed for the Canadian National Team in the Women's World League Super Finals. Shae is currently stationed in Montreal, Canada as a member of the National Team training for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
