Second-team selection Christina DiMartino was also a 2006 MVP.

This year's first team reflects women's soccer's promising future. Only four players are seniors: Rachel Buehler (Stanford), Meghan Schnur (Connecticut), Lopez and Pistorius.

Nine players are Americans, along with Canadian Amanda Cicchini (West Virginia) and Japan international Mami Yamaguchi (Florida State).
