Former McKinney High Lionette Amanda Frisbie was named one of 15 finalists for college soccer’s top award, the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy.
A senior at the University of Portland, Frisbie was named to the 2013 NSCAA All-America First Team, which was announced on Friday morning. Frisbie became Portland’s first First Team All-American selection since 2009, when both Michelle Enyeart and Sophie Schmidt earned that distinction.
A forward for her entire career, Frisbie was named the West Coast Conference Defender of the Year in her first year playing on the backline. She helped the Pilots to nine shutouts and a 17-3-1 overall record, while also scoring eight goals and four game-winners.
Frisbie played for MHS coach Alex Pantarotto as a freshman and sophomore in high school before playing her final two seasons for a club team. Frisbie set the Lions’ freshman scoring record in 2007 with 14 goals and eight assists in 13 games, helping the Lions win the 2007 District 15 4-A Championships
