The senior midfielder from St. Louis finished her career with her third straight selection to the SA MVPs. She helped the Heels win their 17th ACC title in 19 years.

Sarah Huffman, Virginia

Another repeat selection, the senior midfielder led the Cavaliers in assists with eight and ended her Cavalier career with 28 career assists, the second most in school history.

A member of the SA All-Freshman team in 2002 and an SA MVP in 2003, Huie, a midfielder, closed out her college career with a second national championship.
