Sullivan, Campbell on women's soccer Hermann Trophy watch list

 

Stanford senior goalkeeper Jane Campbell and junior midfielder Andi Sullivan were named to the watch list for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, the highest honor in collegiate soccer.

It is the second consecutive year the duo were selected to the preseason watch list. The Cardinal is one of 10 teams in the nation to have multiple representatives on the watch list, which consists of 36 women's soccer players.

Seven of Stanford's 19 opponents will feature at least one member on the watch list, including multiple representatives on Georgetown, Florida, Minnesota and USC.

Sullivan had an outstanding sophomore season, co-captaining Stanford to its 10th Pac-12 title and an NCAA quarterfinals appearance.

She earned NSCAA first-team All-America honors and was named a MAC Hermann Trophy Semifinalist.

Sullivan started all 23 games and played all but 37:30 minutes this past season. She scored five goals in 2015 with each goal either giving Stanford a lead or erasing a one-goal deficit.

Campbell, a psychology major, registered 10 shutouts in 2015 to increase her career total to 30 – good for fourth all-time in Stanford history.

She earned a 18-2-2 record, boasting a career-best 0.58 goals-against average with 49 saves on the year. Campbell was named to the NSCAA All-Pacific Region first team, All-Pac-12 first team and was the Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year.

The duo were centerpieces to a Stanford team that earned its 10th Pac-12 title, registering 12 shutouts and limiting opponents to 13 goals in 23 games for a 0.55 GAA on the season. Stanford made its 25th NCAA Tournament appearance and 18th consecutive.

Stanford has had three winners in the past seven years and 14 Cardinal over the past decade have made the watch list or been semifinalists.

In 2011, Teresa Noyola, a member of Mexico's national team with Cardinal grad Alina Garciamendez, became the third consecutive Stanford player to win the Hermann Trophy, following U.S. Olympians Christen Press in 2010 and Kelley O'Hara in 2009.

Stanford is the first school to have three different winners in as many years.

Near the end of the collegiate regular season, NCAA Division I coaches will vote on their top 15 choices. The list will be narrowed down to three finalists and the winner will be announced in January.

Women's gymnastics

Five Stanford women's gymnasts were named Scholastic All-Americans, as announced Wednesday by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGC/W).

Sixty-three Cardinal gymnasts have now claimed 126 NACGC/W Scholastic All-America honors since 1990.

The five Cardinal selected were redshirt senior Ivana Hong (human biology, 3.58 GPA), senior Jenna Frowein (architectural design, 3.94), junior Rachel Daum (human biology, 3.52), and freshmen Nicole Hoffman (3.62) and Taryn Fitzgerald (3.70).

It is the fourth consecutive award for Frowein and first honors for Hong, Daum, Hoffman and Fitzgerald.

Stanford was also recognized as an NACGC/W Scholastic All-America team, earning a 3.49 team cumulative GPA.

Stanford is coming off of a 2016 season in which it competed in its ninth NCAA Championships in the past 10 years and 16th overall, tied for the highest score at the NCAA Ann Arbor Regional and picked up four regular season wins against NCAA tournament teams.
