North Carolina junior midfielder Crystal Dunn won the MAC Hermann Trophy as the best player of the 2012 college soccer season.
Dunn kicked off the season away with the United States Under-20 team, which won the World Cup with a 1-0 victory over Germany. She scored five goals and added five assists in 17 games for the national champion Tar Heels.
“This is an amazing honor and I am so very thankful that I am playing this game — the game that I love,” Dunn said in her acceptance speech.
In receiving the award, Dunn breaks a streak of three-straight Stanford players earning the honor (Teresa Noyola in 2011, Christen Press in 2010 and Kelley O’Hara in 2009). Here’s the full list of previous winners.
