Hofstra University senior midfielder Lucy Porter was named a first team All-American by the United Soccer Coaches, the organization announced Thursday.

Porter is the women’s soccer program’s first first team selection. She also is the second player in Hofstra history to earn All-America honors twice, joining Hall of Famer Sue Weber. Last season, Porter was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-America second team.

Porter already had secured All-East Region First team, Colonial Athletic Association midfielder of the year, All-CAA first team, and MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist nods this season.

During Hofstra’s shortened season, Porter posted huge numbers, topping the CAA with 10 goals while adding our assists for 24 points. She scored multiple goals four times and recorded a hat-trick in the regular-season finale against Towson University. Porter ranks fourth national in points per game (2.67) and goals per game (1.11).

She was named the CAA offensive player of the week three times.

In her career, Porter has 98 points on 41 goals and 16 assists. Her 41 goals rank third in program history behind Sam Scolarici (50) and Leah Galton (48), while her 98 points are also third behind Galton (122) and Scolarici (108).
