2003 MAC Hermann Trophy Winner
College: University of North Carolina
Hometown: Birmingham, AL
Reddick spent part of the collegiate season with the U.S. Women’s National Team, where she was a starting defender in the 2003 Women’s World Cup. She returned to UNC following the World Cup to score six goals and dish out five assists for 17 points in 13 matches. The senior defender was a key part of Carolina’s historic season in which the Tar Heels went 27-0, the best record ever in women’s college soccer.
Reddick keyed a dominant UNC defense that did not allow a goal in post-season play, earning NCAA Tournament Defensive MVP honors. North Carolina posted a 6-0 shutout over Connecticut in the finals to capture the school’s 18th national championship.
With Reddick‘s selection, the Tar Heels have had the sixth players earn college soccer’s top honor a total of eight times: Shannon Higgins, 1989 (Hermann); Kristine Lilly, 1991 (both the MAC. and Hermann awards); Mia Hamm, 1992 and 1993 (both each year); Tisha Venturini, 1994 (both); and Cindy Parlow, 1997 and 1998 (both each year).
The two other finalists for the award were University of North Carolina sophomore forward Lindsay Tarpley (Kalamazoo, Mich.) and Penn State senior forward Joanna Lohman (Silver Spring, Md.), a two-time NSCAA/adidas Scholar Athlete of the Year.
