Goetzmann assisted on Morgan Marlborough's game-winning overtime goal against Iowa on Oct. 20. Her third assist of the season came in a 6-3 loss at Minnesota in the season finale on Oct. 28.

A two-time first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection, Goetzmann added Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2011.

2010 (Junior)
Goetzmann was one of eight players to start all 21 games for Coach John Walker's Huskers in 2010. She became a key member of the offense, rankeing third on the team in assists with six, which more than doubled her career total of five entering the year.

Goetzmann earned her first point of the season when she connected with sophomore Jordan Jackson on Jackson's second goal against IUPUI in a 4-0 NU home win. Goetzmann added one assist each in a pair 3-1 non-conference home wins over Cal State Fullerton and Iowa.

Goetzmann tied her career high in assists with two in a 4-1 win over Iowa State at the Nebraska Soccer Field when she found sophomores Jackson and Morgan Marlborough for a pair of goals.

In the classroom, Goetmann was a first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection for the third straight year.
2009 (Sophomore)
Goetzmann became a mainstay in the NU lineup as a sophomore, starting all 20 games of the 2009 season as a midfielder and defender.

Goetzmann finished the year with three assists, two of which came in Nebraska's 9-0 romp over South Dakota on Sept. 18. Goetzmann assisted her twin sister, Colleen, and Morgan Marlborough on the first two goals of the game as NU produced the highest-scoring contest by a Husker team since 2000. Goetzmann also had a noteworthy performance in Nebraska's 7-4 win at Kansas on Oct. 23, as she was responsible for the assist on Anna Caniglia's third goal, marking the 27th hat trick in school history.

Off the field, Goetzmann earned first-team academic All-Big 12 honors for the second straight year.

2008 (Redshirt Freshman)
Goetzmann appeared in all 20 games during the Huskers’ 2008 campaign, and earned her first career starts in NU wins over No. 25 Kansas on Sept. 26 and Missouri on Sept. 28. She posted her first career points with a goal and assist in NU’s 3-0 win over Texas Tech on Oct. 19. Goetzmann ended the regular season with a game-winning assist in Nebraska’s 3-1 victory over Iowa State on Oct. 31. She also earned first-team academic All-Big 12 honors in the classroom.

2007 (Freshman)
After breaking a bone in her foot early in the season, Goetzmann redshirted during 2007. She was one of five Huskers to sit out their first season in the Nebraska program.

High School
Goetzmann joined the Huskers with her twin sister, Colleen, after both spent four seasons with the 2006 state champion Millard North Mustangs. Katie earned first-team All-Nebraska, first-team all-state and Super-State honors in both her junior and senior seasons.

Although a midfielder, Goetzmann was a reliable attacker for Millard North, scoring the game-winning goal in the first round of the state tournament in 2004, as well as the game-winner in the 2007 Shrine All-Star Game. Her efforts gained her recognition as the 2007 Women's Soccer Scholar Athlete of the Year at Millard North.

Goetzmann was a two-time academic all-state selection and a four-year member of the Millard North Honor Roll.
