Junior Katie Cousins
of Jefferson Forest (Va.) was named the 2013-14 Gatorade National Girls Soccer Player of the
Year. She did not play high school soccer as a sophomore but has led the Cavaliers to a 20-1-1 record and the Conference 24 title in the Roanoke area this spring.
The Tennessee commit
missed the final three games of the regular season due to duty with the U.S. under-18 women's national team. She had six goals and eight assists through 19 games.
Cousins is the first
player from Virginia to win the award. Morgan Andrews
, now at Notre Dame, also won the award as a junior two years ago.
