Sarah Uyenishi


2005: One of Marquette's most active defenders, Uyenishi helped Marquette to a 0.89 goals against average in 24 matches. She provided three goals and one assist on the year. She netted the match winner in overtime against Syracuse (Oct. 21). She also scored against Miami (Fla.) (Sept. 11) and Pittsburgh (Oct. 9) and assisting against Northwestern (Aug. 28). She was named all-tournament at the Milwaukee Cup and BIG EAST Honorable Mention player of the week after the first week of the season. Uyenishi was also named honorable mention All-BIG EAST. Uyenishi was also named second team All-Great Lakes by Soccer Buzz. Uyenishi continued her playing career overseas following her successful career at Marquette.

2004: Uyenishi solidified herself as one of Marquette's most steady defenders with her play as a junior. She was a solid force on the back line, contributing greatly to Marquette's nine-shutout season. She also continued to prove to be a timely goal scorer, connecting against East Carolina (Oct. 3) and TCU (Oct. 15). The goal against TCU was the game-winner. In the summer, she was part of the USASA National Team which played a two-game tour in Mexico.

2003: Uyenishi moved into a starting role for most of the 2003 season, serving as a capable defender. She was a big part of the reason Marquette held opponents to 0.95 goals per match. As a defender, her speed and size complement the mental part of her game.

2002: Uyenishi showed promise early in the season. She made her collegiate debut against Ohio (Aug. 30). She played the best game of her season in her second match, launching four shots -- two of which were on goal creating legitimate scoring chances -- against Oakland (Sept. 1). That was the most time she would see in a match during the rest of the season. She played in 12 more contests, all off the bench, during her freshman year.

At Lake Zurich: A four-year letterwinner, Uyenishi scored 42 career goals and had 24 career assists. She had a career high of 13 goals and seven assists as a freshman, serving as team captain as a junior and senior, she was an all-conference, all-area, all-sectional and all-state selection during her career. She was a first-team all-state nominee by the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times. She was also named Player-of-the-Year by the Northwest Herald and was team MVP as a senior.

Personal: Born March 16, 1984, in Boulder, Colo., Sarah Anne Uyenishi is the daughter of Steve and Betsy Uyenishi. Her father was a collegiate baseball player at Cedarville College and her older sister is a cheerleader at the University of Colorado. She is a communication major.
