STANFORD, AGAIN: Noyola wins top college honor

Stanford senior midfielder Teresa Noyola claimed college soccer’s top prize on Friday, winning the 2011 Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy. The award is presented annually to the top male and female college soccer players. Duke junior forward Andrew Wenger won on the men’s side.

For Stanford, it’s more of the same. Stanford forward Christen Press won the award in 2010 and Kelley O’Hara captured the honor for the 2009 season, making Noyola the third-straight Cardinal player to win the MAC Hermann Trophy. It is the first time ever that three players from the same school have won the award for three-straight years.

Noyola finished 2011 with nine goals, including the game-winner against Florida State in the national championship match. She added 15 assists to her 2011 campaign.

In Noyola’s four years at Stanford, the Cardinal went 95-4-4. She finished her career with 31 points and 40 assists (102 pts.). Next up for Noyola is the WPS Draft on Friday, Jan. 13, followed by Olympic qualifiers with Mexico.
