[HERMANN TROPHY] Seniors Marcus Tracy of Wake Forest and Kerri Hanks of Notre Dame captured the 2008 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy. Tracy is the first Demon Deacon to capture college soccer's top award, while Hanks, who won the Hermann Trophy in 2006, becomes just the fourth two-time winner.

Hanks, who joined Mia Hamm (North Carolina, 1992-93), Cindy Parlow (North Carolina, 1997-98) and Christine Sinclair (Portland, 2004-05) as a two-time winner, finished the 2008 season ranked fifth in the nation in goals (20), tied for third in assists (15) and tied for second in points (55).

Notre Dame was unbeaten and untied going into the Women's College Cup final, which it lost to North Carolina, 2-1, after Hanks set a NCAA championship record by scoring a goal just 16 seconds into the match.

Casey Nogueira, who scored both UNC goals, was first runner-up. UCLA midfielder Christina DiMartino finished third in voting of women's college coaches.

A year after leading Wake Forest to its first NCAA title, Tracy scored 13 goals and added 10 assists for 36 points. He was one of only two players in the country to finish the year with double-digit totals in goals and assists.

Tracy, who is expected to sign with Danish club Aalborg, finished ahead of Akron sophomore Steve Zakuani and Wake classmate Sam Cronin.

Nogueira and Zakuani claimed 2008 Soccer America Player of the Year honors.
