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.
