Kelley O'Hara became the first Stanford player to win the Women's Hermann Trophy when she was named the winner of the 2009 award, beating out follow a pair of seniors and Olympic gold-medalists, North Carolina midfielder Tobin Heath and UCLA forward Lauren Cheney.

"It's a great way to end the college season," O'Hara said. "I'm so thankful, and blessed. But the reason I was able to get the award was because of my teammates. I couldn't have done it without them."

O'Hara, who also was named the 2009 Soccer America Player of the Year, led Stanford to 25 straight wins before falling to North Carolina, 1-0, in its first NCAA championship final

She shattered school scoring records along the way and led the nation in goals (26) and points (65).

O'Hara said she wasn't nervous, and never felt as if she was destined to win.
 
"I'm sitting next to Tobin Heath and Lauren Cheney, and they both have Olympic gold medals," she said. "I had a good season, but I don't know if I could have expected it."
