[AWARDS] Teresa Noyola became the third Stanford in three years to win the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy, edging teammate Lindsay Taylor, the runner-up, and Penn State sophomore Maya Hayes.

Noyola, a hometown girl who grew up in Palo Alto but plays for Mexico, followed former teammates Kelley O’Hara (2009) and Christen Press (2010) in creating an unprecedented achievement. It marks the first time in its history that three different players from the same school have won the award in consecutive years. 

Noyola and Taylor, the 2011 Soccer America Player of the Year, were part of a Stanford senior class that went 95-4-4 over its four years, including 53-0-1 at home, and reached the NCAA College Cup four times, reaching three consecutive finals.

In the final, Noyola provided the winning goal to beat Duke, 1-0, and provide Stanford with its first national championship.

She finished the 2011 season with nine goals and 15 assists and totaled 31 goals and 40 assists for 102 career points, placing her ninth of the Cardinal’s all-time points list.

    With the triple award to Stanford, and especially with an award to a mid-field play maker, perhaps the rest of the nation will realize that the future of Women's College Soccer is the possession game. Once they do, the USWNT will be assured of a steady supply of the one thing it lacks - - great play-makers.
