Freshman of the Year

Wojtek Krakowiak (St. John's)

Four of his 11 goals came in the NCAA playoffs, and Krakowiak scored in both final-four matches as the Red Storm won the national championship. The diligent attacker started in 25 games, proved he had a nose for the goal, and his accurate passes resulted in 14 assists.
