Senior forward Jaycie Johnson earned third-team NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer All-America honors, announced by the NSCAA on Friday.

Johnson, who previously garnered first-team NSCAA All-Great Lakes Region accolades, becomes the 19th All-American (13th different player) in program history. The last player to accomplish the feat at Nebraska was Ari Romero, who earned second-team status in 2013.

Johnson led the Huskers with 11 goals during her final season at Nebraska. The Lake Winnebago, Mo., native started all 22 games and tallied two assists in 2016. Johnson also collected first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Johnson finished her career with 42 goals, tied for sixth-most in program history. She had 17 career game-winning goals (second-most in Husker history) and nine career multiple-goal games (tied for seventh in Husker history).

The 40 players who made the All-America Teams will be formally acknowledged for their accomplishments at the NSCAA All-America Luncheon on Jan. 14, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in conjunction with the 2017 NSCAA Convention.
