4. HERMANN TROPHY: Notre Dame stars sweep awards
Notre Dame stars Kerri Hanks
and Joseph Lapira swept the
2006 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy as the top college players.
This marks the first time since the MAC began awarding both a men's
and women's award in 1991 that players from the same school have won
the award in the same year. Hanks and Lapira each led the nation in
scoring this season. The winners were decided by a vote of NCAA
Division I soccer coaches who are current members of the NSCAA.
Hanks, who plays for an NCAA Division I women's title on Sunday when
the Irish face North Carolina, is the first sophomore to claim the top
individual honor in
women's soccer. She leads the country in both goals (22) and assists
(21). She has a
chance to join UNC great Mia Hamm
as the only Division I players to
lead in goals and assists in the same season. Hanks was selected the
Big East Conference Offensive Player of the Year.
With 136 career points (50 goals, 36 assists), Hanks has totaled more
points over the course of her first two seasons than all but two
previous players in the 25-year history of Division I womens soccer.
The first runner-up was North Carolina senior forward
Heather O'Reilly, and fellow
Tar Heel Yael Averbuch was the
Lapira led all NCAA Division I men's scorers in
points with 50 and goals with 22 as he became the first player in Notre
Dame men's history to win college soccer's top honor. This marks
the second year in a row that a Louisiana native who led the nation in
goal scoring has won the Hermann Trophy. The Maryland's Jason Garey won the award in 2005.
The top runner-up vote getter was Boston College junior forward Charlie
Davies followed by SMU's Jay
