"Tina is our first-ever selection and someone that is very deserving," said USD head coach Jessica Maddox, who was named the NCC Women's Soccer Coach of the Year. "Tina is a talented offensive player, who because of her passion for the game and her speed and quickness caused problems for our opponents this season. We are honored that she was selected by the NSCAA," Maddox said.
