[SOCCER AMERICA AWARDS] Crystal Dunn, whose postseason play was instrumental in North Carolina's 2012 national title run, is the 11th Tar Heel player to be named the Soccer America Women's Player of the Year.

Dunn's golden goal gave Carolina a 2-1 win at BYU in the quarterfinals and set up fellow SA MVP Kealia Ohai for the golden goal that gave the Tar Heels a 1-0 victory over defending champion Stanford in the semifinals.

Dunn, who scored both goals for the Tar Heels in the win over BYU, missed the first part of the season to represent the USA at the Under-20 Women's World Cup in Japan. She finished with five goals for UNC, all in NCAA Tournament games.

Dunn, who also won the 2012 Hermann Trophy, played at right back for the USA but was moved to midfield for the Carolina run to its 21st NCAA title in 30 years.
