Aug. 18, 1998

ONEONTA, N.Y. – Virginia’s Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va./Norfolk Academy) was named one of 15 finalists for the 1998 Hermann Trophy by the United States National Soccer Hall of Fame. The Hermann honors the outstanding male and female collegiate soccer player in the United States.

Hucles led the Cavaliers in scoring last year with 18 goals and 5 assists. A second-team All-American (NSCAA) in 1997, Hucles ranks second all-time at Virginia with 35 goals and needs just two goals to take sole possession of first place in that category. She has scored at least 17 goals in each of her first two seasons, while no other Cavalier has ever scored more than 13 in a season. Hucles needs 28 points to become Virginia’s all-time leading scorer. A first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection in both 1996 and 1997, Hucles had four game-winning goals in 1997, which led the team. She added a pair of game-winning assists, including against then third-ranked Portland on the road.

The Cavaliers, ranked sixth in the NCSAA poll, open the 1998 season at George Washington on September 1 at 4:00. Virginia returns home to take on the James Madison Dukes at 7:00 pm on Saturday, September 5.

The winners of the 1998 Hermann Trophy will be announced on Saturday, December 12, in a ceremony at the Richmond Centre. The other 14 finalists are listed below:
