LOGAN, Utah - Sophomore Natalie Norris and junior Chandra Salmon were named to the Western Athletic Conference all-tournament team following the completion of the tournament in Ruston, La.

Both Norris and Salmon were also named to the first-team all-WAC squad this season. Norris also earned WAC Defensive Player of the Year honors.

The sixth-seeded Bulldogs went on to capture the WAC Tournament title after defeating second-seeded San Jose State in the championship match on Sunday in penalty kicks. After completing two overtimes with a 0-0 score, Fresno State captured the win going 3-1 in penalty kicks.

Utah State will say good bye to three seniors midfielders Stefani Shiozaki, Heather Pond and forward Lauren Hansen, who played their final home match.
