Boldt, a Midlothian High School graduate, received Second Team All-SAC honors as a freshman.
During the 2021 season, Boldt led the Sooner Athletic Conference goalkeepers with 130 saves in her 14 games started giving her a .818 save percentage. She also led all conference goalkeepers in saves per game, averaging 9.69. Nationally, Boldt ranked 14th in saves throughout the NAIA.
"For the second year in a row, Zoe has proven herself to be one of the premier goalkeepers in the nation,” SAGU head women’s soccer coach Paul Hason said. “What's exciting is the fact that her performance today is only the tip of the iceberg of her potential. The future looks bright for Zoe and her teammates."
Additionally, the SAGU women's soccer team had three NCCAA First Team All-Region selections: junior midfielder Paula Moreno of Bogota, Colombia; freshman defender Brooke Thatcher of Las Cruces, N.M.; and freshman forward Alexis Roman of Milwaukee, Wis.
