NCAA Soccer – 2012 AWK Award WINNERS

First of all, thanks to everyone who sent back a ballot and who voted in the fan vote. Participation was up in both this season, which is a nice sign.

AWK Coach of the Year – Anson Dorrance (North Carolina)
AWK Rookie of the Year – Cari Roccaro (Notre Dame)
AWK Golden Glove – Adrianna “AD” Franch (Oklahoma State)
AWK Defender of the Year – Alina Garciamendez (Stanford)
AWK Midfielder of the Year – Crystal Dunn (North Carolina)
AWK Forward of the Year – Maya Hayes (Penn State)

A few notes:

-Largest margin of victory? Coach of the Year

-It took the second tiebreaker for Alina Garciamendez to be named Defender of the Year, as she and Lindsi Lisonbee Cutshall finished level on voting points and first place votes.

-The unofficial award for best fan support goes to Duke’s Cassie Pecht, who nabbed more votes herself than there were TOTAL votes in the other categories. Well done Duke fans.

    It looks like the coach’s poll and the fan poll were diametrically opposed in most cases. I’m glad Franch and Dunn won, though not sure about Garciamendez and would have voted for Miller.

    Franch was awesome this year… Wait, that was last year. It’s not her fault and good for her but who votes for a player who accomplished nothing this year? She is a great player, but picking her as a winner is a joke
