Florida State junior midfielder Jaelin Howell has won the Hermann Trophy, which recognizes the top female college soccer player in the country.

NCAA Division I coaches voted on the award winners, which were announced Thursday by the Missouri Athletic Club.

Howell, a Lone Tree, Colo. native, led Florida State to the NCAA Division I final, where it lost to Santa Clara 4-1 on penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw.

During the season, Howell helped the Seminoles to nine shutouts in 15 games. She also recorded five goals and two assists.

Howell’s teammate Malia Berkely was also nominated for the award, giving the Seminoles two of the free finalists.
