LOS ANGELES - UCLA senior forward Sydney Leroux is still in contention for college soccer's highest honor, as she was recently named one of 15 semifinalists for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, an award given annually to the nation's top player.
Leroux, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, recently concluded a stellar four-year career for the Bruins. She led the team in scoring for the third-straight season in 2011, posting 16 goals and three assists for 35 points. She also led the Pac-12 in game-winning goals with eight. Leroux came in second in the voting for Pac-12 Player of the Year in 2011, landing a spot on the conference's first team.
Leroux finishes her college career ranked in the top 5 at UCLA in several offensive categories, including points (126 - 4th), goals (57 - 4th) and game-winning goals (23 - 4th).
