LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Incoming Virginia women's soccer player Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) was named the 2010-11 Gatorade National Female High School Athlete of the Year during a ceremony Tuesday at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. She becomes the first soccer player (male or female) to receive the honor in the nine-year history of the Gatorade National High School Athlete of the Year award.
A 5-7 midfielder, Brian will be a freshman on the 2011 Cavalier soccer team. She has served as captain of the United States U-17 National Team and was named the 2011 National Girls Soccer Player of the Year by both Gatorade and Parade. Brian had 71 goals and 30 assists in 20 games during her senior season at Frederica Academy and finished her high school career with 186 goals and 95 assists.
Brian was presented the award by former Gatorade winners Lisa Leslie, Jessica Mendoza and Allyson Felix. In addition, she was recognized on Wednesday during the telecast of the ESPY Awards.
The National Male High School Athlete of the Year Award was Dylan Bundy, a pitcher from Owasso, Okla., who was the fourth overall selection in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft by the Baltimore Orioles.
