KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee senior Hannah Wilkinson has been named to the 2014 Women's MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List, as announced by the NSCAA on Wednesday.
Wilkinson is one of 35 NCAA Division I women's soccer players recognized as preseason favorites for the 2014 MAC Hermann Trophy. Wilkinson is one of eight SEC players on the list. The 2012 NSCAA All-American has amassed 13 goals and six assists over 32 appearances in her previous two years at UT.
Wilkinson was previously named to the 2013 MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List.
The MAC Hermann Trophy is the most prestigious individual award in NCAA soccer presented annually to one male and one female athlete. The winners will be announced Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, at the trophy presentation banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
The 2014 Watch Lists were announced earlier today on NSCAATV.com on the "2014 NSCAA College Soccer Review Show," which also revealed the 2014 NSCAA/Continental Tire Preseason College Rankings for NCAA Division I men's and women's teams. The lists are compiled by the NSCAA Men's and Women's NCAA Division I All-America Committees, based on their analysis of returning All-America and All-Region players, as well as any prominent newcomers.
Near the end of the collegiate regular season, NCAA Division I coaches that are NSCAA members will vote on their top choices and the lists will be narrowed down to the top 15 players. College soccer fans will also have the opportunity to participate in the selection process, by voting for their favorite semifinalist in November at the MAC Hermann Trophy website, managed by LockerDome.
From that pool of 30, six finalists (three men, three women) will be chosen for the award. The winners will be announced in January.
