Soccer’s Goldman Earns Degree in Kinesiology

Baton Rouge, La. Emma Grace Goldman earned her degree in kinesiology on Friday afternoon at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

Goldman enrolled at LSU in January of 2016 and has been nothing but an exceptional teammate on and off the pitch. She earned her first playing time in net this season as a redshirt junior and she made the most of it. She led the SEC with 108 saves on the season, the fifth most in LSU single season history. She had two shutouts on the season and made a career-high 16 saves in LSU’s road match against Georgia on Sept. 26 to help LSU to a 1-1 draw. The 16 saves in the match were the second most ever recorded by an LSU keeper in a game. She helped out a bit too on the offensive end with the first assist of her career in the Tigers’ season finale against Kentucky, a game the Tigers won by a tally of 3-2.

Goldman has served in the Baton Rouge community numerous times throughout her time at LSU racking up a total of 133 community service hours. She has helped with Kids Hope, the annual MLK Festival, LSU Food Bank, and the Special Olympics amongst others.

Goldman was one of 28 LSU student-athletes to graduate on Friday and a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
