St. John’s University graduate forward Zsani Kajan was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-America second team, the organization announced on Thursday.

Kajan, who was selected to the United Soccer Coaches East Region first team earlier in the week, secured the accolade for the first time in her career. The Budapest, Hungary native became the third player in program history to be named a United Soccer Coaches All-American, joining Rachel Daly (2013 and 2015) and Georgia Kearney-Perry (2015).

The 2021 Big East offensive player of the year, Kajan compiled one of the finest seasons in St. John’s women’s soccer history. The 5-7 forward recorded a league-best 16 goals in 23 games and ranks among the top-five among Division I opponents.

Kajan tallied a conference-high seven goals during conference action and registered at least one point in seven of 10 conference games to finish atop the league ledger with 17 points.

She recorded five multi-goal games, including two hat-tricks – against Saint Joseph’s on Aug. 21 and Creighton on Oct. 24. Kajan is the only player in program history to record four career hat-tricks.

Kajan climbed the program’s all-time list for a number of career records this season. With 45 goals and 101 points, Kajan concluded her Red Storm career second in both statistical categories.
