DSN WOMEN'S COLLEGE HONORS
Texas Tech's Beckie is Player of the Year
Janine Beckie completed a sensational college career by leading Texas Tech to the Big 12 Conference tournament title and the second round of the NCAA Division I tournament, and her efforts are rewarded with the Dallas Soccer News women’s college player of the year award.
The senior forward from Highlands Ranch, Colo., is the most decorated player in Red Raiders history, a four-time All-Big 12 first-team selection and two-time conference offensive player of the year with three All-America citations and four All-Central Region honors.
She was the Big 12 offensive honoree and a second-team All-American this year after scoring 14 goals -- six of them game-winners -- with three assists.
Beckie, a Canadian national-teamer who represented Canada at the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup after previously playing for U.S. youth national teams, scored a Texas Tech-record 57 goals (22 game-winners) with 16 assists in 90 career collegiate matches.
Texas Tech's Tom Stone is the coach of the year, Texas A&M's Emily Bates the freshman of the year, and Auburn All-American Casie Ramsier is the out-of-area player of the year.
