2001: As head coach Patrick Baker has stated on numerous occasions, when FSU plays its best soccer, Marte Vik Edvardsen is usually on the field. For more than two years, Vik Edvardsen has been FSU’s leader in the midfield. Few players are as comfortable on the field as she is and the senior is continually making things happen for the Seminole offense. She is already FSU’s all-time leader in shots (132) and she increased that lead with 18 this season. Her 13 starts in 2001 brought her career total to 69 and moved her into sole possession of fourth place amongst FSU’s all-time starts leaders. After scoring a goal and recording an assist versus GMU and Loyola and adding two more assists against Clemson and UNC, Marte is sixth on the all-time point scorer’s list with her career total now at 37. Her header goal against Loyola placed her as one of the top seven goal scorers in Florida State history. She is now also amongst the top six in career assists. Vik Edvardsen’s game-winner against George Mason and assists versus Clemson and UNC gave her 11 assists in her career. She also entered the top five all-time for game-winning assists after the assist versus George Mason and she should finish her career among the career leaders in game-winning goals and game-winning assists. She also set the mark for the longest consecutive start streak at 57 straight matches. The Oslo, Norway native moved into first with her 55th consecutive start at UCF October 5th. The streak unfortunately came to an end when a knee injury forced the senior to the bench against FIU, ending a streak that dated back to her sophomore campaign in 1999. It was the first time that she hadn’t started in almost three years.
Baker on Vik Edvardsen: I think she is our best player when all is said and done. Especially when you talk about a soccer mind, she is the best. She is very competitive and hates to lose at anything. She is about to have her best season ever as a senior this year. Her skill, desire and vision are unmatched on our squad. We will go as far as Marte will take us.
