SOCCER HONOR . . . Stanford forward Christen Press won college soccer's most prestigious award, the Hermann Trophy, last week. At a ceremony at the Missouri Athletic Club, Press became the second consecutive Stanford player to win the award, following Kelley O'Hara. Stanford became the first school since North Carolina from 1991-94 to have different individuals win in consecutive years. Press led the nation in goals (26) and points (60) while helping the Cardinal reach the College Cup final and a 23-1-2 record. Her 26 goals tied the school's single-season scoring record, set last year by O'Hara. The senior leaves the program as the most prolific scorer in Stanford history, establishing the career record in goals (71), assists (41) and points (183). Press earned Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year and NSCAA first-team All-America honors. She also excelled in the classroom, earning first-team Academic All-America honors and winning the Pac-10's Scholar-Athlete of the Year for her sport. Stanford had an impressive 67-0-1 record when Press had a goal or assist during her collegiate career. She is the Cardinal's all-time scorer in NCAA Tournament play with 13 goals. This season, Press led Stanford to its second consecutive perfect conference season, sending the team to its third consecutive College Cup, earning all-tournament honors each year.
