Orange Elks member Laura McCarty is a very proud mom. Laura’s daughter Katie, a goalie,  who graduated from Canyon High School is a freshman at Fresno State University and was named the Western Athletic Conference Defensive Athlete of the Week.
Here is the Fresno State press release:
Aug. 29, 2011
FRESNO, Calif. - Freshman Katie DeVault was named Western Athletic Conference Defensive Athlete of the Week, the league announced Monday. The 5-9 Santa Ana, Calif. native started both of the Bulldogs games in goal and earned her second consecutive shutout.
"I'm so grateful to have won this award and am honored to be recognized," said DeVault. "But [the defense] really preformed. They're very talented players."
Ranked second in the WAC in shutouts (2), DeVault picked up five saves in 119:30 minutes on the pitch this past week.
"Katie has really stepped up her game and made some important plays for us," said Head Coach Brian Zwaschka. "She is part of a defensive unit that is starting to gel."
Her last shutout was against Loyola Marymount, ranked No. 21 in the nation by Soccer America.
She boasts a 0.097 goals against average (third best in the WAC) this season and has 15 saves in her four straight starts.
"As she grows into the leadership responsibilities we demand from the goalkeepers," added Zwaschka, "she will undoubtedly continue to have a very positive impact on our program. She's only really begun."

Katie

The Orange Elks, “Care and Share”! The lodge members donate their time and energy to many community projects during the year. Some of these include handing out dictionaries to all the third graders in the city of Orange, handing out Christmas Baskets to needy families in our city or helping with various projects involving our Veterans. Sunday, two of our members, sisters Stacey Gentry and Laura McCarty went to Cal State Fullerton to support Laura’s daughter Katie DeVault, a member of the Fresno State’s women’s soccer team. Katie chose Fresno State because of the people and the environment.

Katie graduated from Canyon HS in 2011 where she was Captain of the ladies soccer team, earned first-team All-Century League and helped her team to three Century League championships.  

Katie’s is a goalie and in her freshman year she started 17 games, ranked nationally in saves, save percentage and was voted WAC Defensive Player of the Week twice.

In 2012 as a sophomore, she appeared all 20 games in goal. She ranked nationally in saves, led the Mountain West in saves and saves per game and set a new school record for saves in a single match with 13 saves.  Katie was named MW Co-Defensive Player of the Week. One of her top awards was being named a Mountain West Scholar-Athlete. The M W Scholar-Athlete Award is one of the highest academic honors bestowed by the Conference. To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least two academic terms at the member institution, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better, and have participated in varsity competition in an NCAA-sponsored sport.

Katie Update!
Junior goalkeeper Katie DeVault earned her third straight MW (Mountain West) weekly accolade on Oct. 21 for matches played Oct. 15 through Oct. 20. Katie recorded 15 saves over the weekend to help guide Fresno State to a scoreless draw at Wyoming on Oct. 18 and a 2-1 double-overtime victory at Air Force on Oct. 20. She led Fresno State with 11 saves in the Bulldogs 0-0 draw at Wyoming, recording her fourth shutout of the season and 14th of her career. The junior goalkeeper then made four saves, including a crucial one in overtime in the win over the Falcons, as the Bulldogs ran their unbeaten streak to six games.
Katie DeVault is in the Record Books! After 17 games DeVault leads the Mountain West with 84 saves this season and ranks 33rd in the country. Her save percentage of .840 ranks first in MW and T-38th nationally. DeVault now sits solely in second on the Fresno State all-time saves list with 312 career saves. The junior goalkeeper recorded her 14th career shutout against Wyoming on Oct. 18 which ranks fourth on the Fresno State all-time list.
