Murphy also ranked in the NAC top 10 in shots (60), shots per game (3.53), points per game (1.53), goals (13), goals per game (0.76), and game winning goals (4).
A freshman goalie who has yet to declare a major, Schroeder (Lake Villa, IL/ Lakes Community) received honorable mention and was named to the NAC All-Freshman Team. Schroeder led the NAC with 160 saves and was seconds in the conference with 9.41 saves per game.
Rockford finished the 2008 season 4-13 overall, but managed two conference wins, their first since joining the Northern Athletics Conference in 2006.
