Notre Dame stars Kerri Hanks andJoseph 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 goal 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 second runner-up.

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'sJason Garey won the award in 2005.

The top runner-up vote getter was Boston College junior forward Charlie Davies followed by SMU's Jay Needham.
