North Carolina's Crystal Dunn Receives Honda Sports Award For Soccer

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- After a 2-year absence from the national championship, 2-time All-American midfielder, Crystal Dunn (Rockville Center, N.Y.), led the North Carolina Tar Heels to a 4-1 victory over Penn State at the 2012 NCAA Women's College Cup and has received the Honda Sports Award for soccer.

"I owe much of this honor to my team for providing the competitive environment and the support necessary to allow me to excel at a high level.  The Honda Committee has honored many Tar Heels with this award and I am extremely humbled to become the 12th Tar Heel over the years to be so honored," said Dunn.

The CWSA presents the Honda Sports Award annually to top women athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports.  With this honor, Dunn becomes a finalist for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year and the 2013 Honda Cup. Dunn was chosen by a vote from 1,000 NCAA member schools. Finalists included Alina Garciamendez-Rowold ( Stanford University), Christine Nairn (Penn State Univ.), and Ines Jaurena (Florida State Univ.).

"Obviously we consider this an extraordinary honor and we're excited the Honda Committee picked Crystal Dunn.  It's clear they were aware of her importance to our run through the NCAA Tournament.  She scored goals in the first four games of the Tournament run and assisted on goals in both College Cup games, including the game-winner against Stanford.  It has been a dream fall for Crystal and the Tar Heels.  We are incredibly proud of Crystal and thrilled with this wonderful recognition," said Head Coach Anson Dorrance.

Dunn is a sociology major who spent part of the 2012 collegiate off-season with the U.S. U-20 Women's National Soccer Team that claimed the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
