LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville women’s soccer junior forward Christine Exeter was named to the Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) Hermann Trophy watch list for 2012 on Monday.
The MAC Hermann Trophy is the highest individual award in intercollegiate soccer presented annually in January during a banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
Exeter (Pickering, Ont./Pickering HS), the 2011 BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year and a unanimous preseason All-BIG EAST selection in 2012, led the Cardinals with 14 goals and three assists while starting 23 of 24 games as a sophomore. A 2011 NSCAA All-America honoree, Exeter connected for five game-winning goals, including the only goal of the match in the Cardinals' win at Cincinnati to clinch the program’s first ever BIG EAST National Division title.
The watch list will be narrowed down by NSCAA members from Division I programs to 15 semifinalists by November 29. Member coaches and fans will then vote for their top three choices and the finalists will be announced December 6. The winner will be announced at the awards’ banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club on Friday, Jan. 11.
The Cardinals will open the regular season on Friday at 7 p.m., ET at Butler. Louisville’s home-opener is set for Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m., ET against Purdue.
