STANFORD, Calif.- Senior Becky Dru has been named a 2012 Longstreth/NFHCA First Team All-American, earning the sport's highest honor for a second consecutive season.
Meanwhile, sophomore Kelsey Harbin was chosen as a Third Team All-American selection, giving Stanford a pair of honorees in the same season.
A two-time First Team All-American, Dru was honored as the 2012 NorPac Player of the Year, earning the distinction for the second straight season and collecting her fifth conference award overall. A native of Buckinghamshire, England, Dru led the Cardinal in goals (12), assists (12), points (36), shots (65) and game-winning goals (3) this season. Arguably one of the most decorated players in school history, Dru totaled 54 goals, 36 assists, 144 points, 311 shots and 15 game-winning goals in 87 career games.
Harbin continued to emerge as one of the nation's elite young players, tabbed an All-NorPac selection while earning the conference's Defensive Player of the Year award. A native of Escondido, Calif., Harbin totaled 15 points (five goals, five assists) this year while attempting 34 shots and sharing the team lead with Dru in game-winning goals (3). In addition to racking up two defensive saves, Harbin scored Stanford's first goal in NCAA Tournament play since 2010 during a 4-1 loss to North Carolina last weekend. Harbin started all but three games this year, missing time in mid-September while representing the U.S. team at the Junior Pan American Championships.
Dru, Harbin and junior Hope Burke were named NFHCA All-West Region selections last week. The West Region comprises schools such as California, Michigan, Iowa, Ohio State, Louisville, Northwestern and Michigan State.
