Kaskaskia College soccer player Miranda Burroughs has received another first as she was recently named to the NJCAA Division I Women’s Soccer All-American Team. She is the first female soccer player at Kaskaskia College to ever attain this honor.
The sophomore forward from Poplar Buff, Missouri is another accolade to add to her already long resume of awards. In her career at KC she has been named 1st Team All-Region as a freshman and sophomore and this fall was named Region Player of the Year. As a freshman she scored 26 goals and had 10 assists. As a sophomore she scored 21 goals and had 12 assists. Miranda also finished this season nationally ranked in three categories. She was ranked 22nd in goals, 28th in assists, and 19th in points. She amassed 46 goals and 22 assists for a total of 114 points in her two seasons.
As a freshman, Miranda was also named Female Athlete of the Year. She has also been a member of the women’s basketball team.
Kaskaskia College Soccer Coach Joe Basch says, “Miranda in my opinion was an obvious choice to be named All-American. She is as complete of offensive player as you are ever going to find. She is a true example of a student-athlete as she is also on track to become an Academic All-American. I could not be happier for Miranda to receive this honor.”
She is the daughter of Mark and Helen Burroughs.
