2012 MAC Hermann Trophy Winner

Dunn was a key member of the 2012 U.S. National Team that captured the U20 World Cup in Japan in September. As a result, she missed the non-conference portion of the Tar Heels’ schedule, but once she joined the lineup, her experience and versatility made an immediate impact. Dunn started at center back for the first 11 games before being moved to the center midfield for UNC’s six-game NCAA Tournament run.
She played a key role in helping Carolina capture their 21st national championship in school history. Dunn assisted on goals in both College Cup games. The three-year starter earned NSCAA First Team All-America honors and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year.
The first runner-up was Penn State senior midfielder Christine Nairn (Arnold, Md.) followed by Virginia senior midfielder Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.).
