CHENEY, Wash. — Redshirt junior goalkeeper Abbie Faingold and senior midfielder Katie Forsee were each named to the All-Big Sky tournament team Sunday, after the conclusion of the Big Sky championship match between Eastern Washington and Northern Colorado.
No Viking had earned all-tournament honors since Abbey Bergquist was named to the 2014 all-tournament team in the Vikings’ last trip to the Big Sky tournament.
Faingold and Forsee helped lead the Vikings to the semifinals of the tournament, as the Vikings beat Northern Arizona 1-0 in the quarterfinals Wednesday. The Vikings then faced top-seeded and eventual tournament champions Eastern Washington in the semifinals, and gave the Eagles a game but fell 2-1.
Faingold finished the tournament with six saves between the Vikings’ two matches, the third-best single tournament total by a Viking in program history.
