hermann trophy

TBT: January 9, 2010

KO, Tobin & Cheney at the annual MAC Hermann Trophy banquet, where Kelley beat out the other two for the previous year’s trophy. 

Little-known fact:

Stanford’s Kelley O’Hara & Teresa Noyola are two of only three players in the history of women’s collegiate soccer to unite the Hermann Trophy and the NSCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year awards (2009 & 2011, respectively), joining Portland’s Christine Sinclair in 2005. (Sinc won the Hermann in 2004 too, but wasn’t top #jocknerd that year).

All three of Stanford’s MAC Hermann recipients (O’Hara, Press & Noyola) were Academic All-Americans, the #jocknerd bracket of the All-America selection.

anonymous asked:

I never understood why she was 4th pick. She lead her team to 2 consecutive NCAA finals (I mean literally coz she had the most goals & assists) and won the Hermann trophy in her senior year. Plus those two years, Stanford had the best record in the entire country. What did the other 3 draft picks achieve? (Except for Kling whose team won the championship in her junior year).

Sineah Farrelly of all people hahaha

Let’s chat about Kadeisha Buchanan

Okay tumblr, I know you guys are all super into CanWNT youngster Jessie Fleming. She’s 17, she’s a force, and she’s cute, what’s not to love. Realistically though, Jessie will only be used as a sub. So let’s talk about a girl who is a main stay in our starting XI and also happens to be 19. 

Kadeisha Buchanan

Fun fact, along with Christine Sinclair, there is only one member of the Canadian roster who was started every game of 2015. Do you know who that is? Kadeisha Buchanan. 


The sophomore at Western Virginia University was semi-finalist for the MAC Hermann trophy this year. That makes her only one of 4 sophomore’s  out of 35 semi-finalists. 

The defender has played appeared in 36 games, had 33 starts and scored 2 goals. 


“I’m not frightened to say it. She’s the Sinclair of defenders,” John Herdman said in May 2014 after Buchanan and Abby Wambach faced off in a 1-1 draw in Winnipeg. “She’s that good.”

Frisco, TX, February 13, 2016 etc…

Las Tri 0-1 USWNT

—Lindsey Horan as holding MF did the holding part great.
—So *OVER* Hinkle.

Pictured for Las Tri: Teresa Noyola (MEX 8),  Janelly Farias (MEX 3), Ariana Romero (MEX 2), Monica Ocampo (MEX 11) and Alina Garciamendez (MEX 4/Stanford 4)

—And Las Tri VS USWNT woulda been more interesting if KO subbed instead of Hinkle. KO would’ve given Monica a run for her mo-nay

Also if Jill did right by KO, four Stanny Trees would have been on the pitch today (KO, Press, Noyola and Garciamendez), as well as all three Stanford MAC Hermann recipients (KO, Press, and Noyola). 

Little-known fact:

KO & Noyola are two of only three players in the history of women’s collegiate soccer to unite the Hermann Trophy and the NSCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year awards (2009 & 2011, respectively), joining Portland’s Christine Sinclair in 2004 & 2005.

—Ecstatic Ali Riley is always a bonus.
