STANFORD, Calif. - Senior Marisa Abegg and junior Kelley O'Hara were included on the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy watch list of 47 of the top women's collegiate soccer players recently released by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

A list of 15 semifinalists is selected by a coaches committee in November, with three finalists announced in early December. They will invited to the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, Mo., for a news conference on Jan. 9, 2009, where the winner will be announced, with a presentation banquet following.
This is the second season that O'Hara, who was a semifinalist last year, has made the list, while the honor is a first for Abegg.
