BALTIMORE – UMBC women's soccer's senior midfielder Jessy Brown (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage) has been named as a nominee for the MAC Hermann Fans' Choice vote, with the winner being named as a fans' choice semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. Voting will run from Monday, Oct. 27 until 12 p.m. on Nov. 3.
The MAC Hermann Trophy is the highest individual intercollegiate award presented annually during a January banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.
UMBC concluded the regular season with the program's eighth 10-win season in its history and finished in the top-two in the conference for the second straight season.
Brown leads the Retrievers and ranks fourth in the America East in points (19) and goals scored (seven). She has totaled career-bests in both goals and assists, equaling the highest point total for a Retriever since Amanda DiCarlo in 2005. Her fourth game-winning goal of the season on Thursday against Albany marked the 10th game-winner of her career, all coming over the last two seasons.
Earlier in the season, Brown posted UMBC's first five-point performance since Oct. 4, 2009 to earn America East Player of the Week, College Sports Madness Player of the Week and an Honorable Mention for Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week.
Brown moved into the Retrievers' all-time record book in games played, tying for the most in program history, as well as tying for ninth in career assists (nine). The senior is the reigning America East Co-Midfielder and the America East Most Outstanding Player. Brown also earned NSCAA Northeast All-Region Third Team honors and was voted an ECAC All-Star Second Team selection.
Brown has not only excelled on the playing field during her time with the Retrievers, she has also shined in the classroom and the community. The Plantation, Fla., native was named a senior CLASS award nominee, one of 30 female candidates that were acknowledged for excelling on the field, in the classroom and throughout their community during their collegiate careers.
During her time on campus, Brown has been named to the NSCAA Scholar All-East Region Second Team, as well as the America East All-Academic Team. The National College Athlete Honor Society member has posted a 3.57 in biology, with a minor in psychology.
