ACWPC All-American Trio
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford was well represented among the 2020-21 ACWPC All-America Team, with Tyler Abramson, AJ Rossman and Quinn Woodhead earning the highest level of national recognition.
Abramson and Rossman were honored as first-team recipients while Woodhead received honorable mention status.
A three-time ACWPC All-American, Abramson led the Cardinal in goals (21), shots (53) and points (26) this season through 10 games. Abramson scored a game-high four goals in Stanford's NCAA semifinal loss to UCLA and earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team (first team).
A two-time ACWPC All-American, Rossman finished with 16 goals, six assists, 41 shots and 22 points this season in 10 games while leading the Cardinal with seven multi-goal performances. Rossman was also named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team (second team).
A two-time ACWPC All-American, Woodhead contributed 14 goals, seven assists, 37 shots and 21 points in 10 games this season. Woodhead was also named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team (second team).
Earlier this month, Abramson, Rossman and Woodhead were also named MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athletes, having maintained a 3.0 GPA.
Despite beginning its 2019 NCAA title defense with a 1-3 start, Stanford ripped off five straight wins while becoming the first school in MPSF history to capture three straight conference titles. The Cardinal locked up the No. 1 seed at NCAA Championships before falling 11-10 to UCLA in the semifinals.
Stanford's season was even more impressive considering the obstacles and early-season adversity faced during its pandemic-shortened 2021 campaign. The Cardinal, which reported back to campus on Jan. 4 and started its regular season two weeks later than its peers, missed its first tournament and was unable to schedule nonconference opponents like its MPSF counterparts.
