Liberty midfielder Amy Oberlin has named to the 2008 VaSID All-State roster, honoring the best Division I women's soccer players in Virginia.

With the selection, Oberlin becomes the only Lady Flame to be named to the team three times, having also been voted to the squad's second team in 2006 and 2007.

The senior capped her Liberty career this past fall by becoming the second Liberty women's soccer player to be named to the Big South All-Conference team each of her four seasons in a Lady Flame uniform. In addition, she is only the third Lady Flame to be selected to the first team three times. Oberlin joins former Liberty standouts Nancy Davis, who was named to four All-Big South first teams from 1998-2001, and Mandee Judd Wheelock, who was selected to the first team in 2003, 2005 and 2006.

The senior forward was named to the all-conference first team the past three seasons, after being selected to the Big South's all-conference second team her freshman year. Having played in all 17 Liberty games this season, the Lady Flames' leading scorer completed her senior campaign tied for fourth in the conference with 18 points and tied for third with eight goals. She also picked up two assists during the year.

Oberlin finished her career ranked second on both the program's all-time points list with 54 and on the goals scored list with 24. In addition, she was honored with selection to the 2008 Big South All-Academic team for her efforts in the classroom, as well as on the soccer field. It was the second straight year Oberlin has been selected to the all-academic team.

Virginia senior defender Nikki Krzysik and James Madison junior forward Corky Julien shared the 2008 VaSID All-State University Division Player of the Year Award. Radford's Ben Sohrabi garnered Coach of the Year honors from the voting panel, while VMI forward Olivia Moore was selected the Rookie of the Year.

The 2008 VaSID All-State University Division Women's Soccer team was nominated and voted upon by sports information directors at colleges and universities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
