BERKELEY - California sophomore forward Andrew Wiedeman earned a spot on the NSCAA/adidas All-America third team, the coaches' association announced today. Recently, Wiedeman was named to the NSCAA Far West All-Region first team.

"We are very proud of Andrew's accomplishments this year," said Cal head coach Kevin Grimes. "Having an All-American on the team is a great testament to the program and his teammates."

Last year, former Cal midfielder Andrew Jacobson and goalkeeper Stefan Frei were named to the NSCAA All-America first-team.

Wiedeman, a forward from San Ramon, Calif., was also named to the All-Pac-10 first team and the Pac-10 All-Academic second team. He finished a strong sophomore campaign with a team-best 29 points (12G, 5A). He ended the season recording at least a point in the final six games and scored Cal's last three goals of the year. Wiedeman earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors after a five-point weekend to open the campaign. He scored in double overtime when Cal beat UC Santa Barbara in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
