HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – The Hofstra University women’s dynamic duo of juniors Lucy Porter and Sabrina Bryan added to their long resume of postseason honors as they were named NCAA Division I Scholar All-Americans by the United Soccer Coaches.
Porter collected first team distinction while Bryan earned second team honors.
Porter and Bryan are the eighth and ninth Scholar All-Americans in Pride program history. They follow Maddie Anderson (2017), Jill Mulholland (2015, 2016), Sam Scolarici (2013), Tara Kerns (2013), Tiffany Yovino (2019, 2010), Jess Crankshaw (2008) and Sue Weber (2006, 2007).
Porter, who has collected just about every award there is to offer, earned first team Scholar All-America honors after accumulating a 3.49 grade-point average as a Health Science major. She was named to the Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll in each of her last three semesters while also earning Dean’s List distinction three times. Porter also was named to the Hofstra Athletic Director Scholars Academic Honor Roll last spring. On the pitch this season, Porter racked up a program-record 40 points via a conference-high 16 goals and eight assists.
Bryan had put together a 3.40 GPA as an Exercise Science major. She has been featured on the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll in each of her last three semesters and was named to the Dean’s List twice. Bryan put together an excellent campaign on the pitch, recording 32 points this season off 11 goals and a conference-high 10 assists.
The duo led Hofstra to a 16-4-2 record this season while posting an undefeated 7-0-2 CAA mark. Hofstra earned a first round NCAA Division I Tournament win over Loyola Chicago to reach the NCAA second round for the second consecutive year.
