UCLA senior defender Abby Dahlkemper of Menlo Park was named a National Soccer Coaches Association of America first-team All-American on Friday.
The Sacred Heart Prep grad, who led the Bruins to the national title last season, made the first team for a third time -- the only player so honored.

LaBonta, a captain from Rancho Cucamonga, became the 26th Stanford player to be named to the All-America team by the NSCAA. Those players have combined for 39 All-America honors. This is LaBonta's first All-America selection.
In addition, LaBonta is among four Stanford players named to the NSCAA All-Pacific Region team along with Dahlkemper, a first-team pick.
LaBonta and senior forward Chioma Ubogagu were first-team selections, and sophomore goalkeeper Jane Campbell and freshman midfielder Andi Sullivan were named to the second team.
The Stanford players will be in action Friday (4:30 p.m. PT; ESPNU) when Stanford (20-1-3) plays Florida State (22-1-1) in the NCAA College Cup semifinals.
LaBonta, also a semifinalist for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy as collegiate soccer's best player, leads Stanford in goals (13) and points (31). She also has five assists and has been a strong leader and playmaker. Dahlkemper also is semifinalist for the award.
