Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) was announced tonight as the 2013 winner of the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy. Brian becomes the first person in Cavalier history to win the award on the women's side.

The Missouri Athletic Club's (MAC) Hermann Trophy is presented to the best female and male players in NCAA Division I soccer. The winners were decided by a vote of NCAA Division I soccer coaches that are current members of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), along with a weighted fan vote hosted at the MAC's website hosted by LockerDome.

Winning the women's MAC Hermann Trophy caps Brian's stellar 2013 campaign. She finished the season as the ACC's leading scorer with 46 points on 16 goals and a conference-best 14 assists. She also made Cavalier history by setting the single-season record in assists.

Her honors include First Team All-ACC and NSCAA First Team All-American, as well as earning spots on the ACC All-Tournament and All-NCAA Tournament teams. She also made three appearances for the United States Women's National Team in 2013, scoring her first international goal against Mexico on Sept. 3, 2013.

Brian was also named TopDrawerSoccer.com and Soccer America Women's Player of the Year. She was also the first Cavalier to be named the Soccer America Women's Player of the Year.

First runner-up was North Carolina senior midfielder and 2012 MAC Hermann winner Crystal Dunn (Rockville Centre, N.Y.), followed by UCLA junior defender Abby Dahlkepmer (Menlo Park, Calif.).

On the men's side, Maryland senior forward Patrick Mullins (New Orleans) won the award for the second straight year.
