    LOS ANGELES -- USC junior midfielder Morgan Andrews earned a prestigious honor this week, as she was named the 42nd greatest soccer player to come out of New England by The New England Soccer Journal this week.

    Andrews, a Milford, N.H., native, earned NSCAA All-America honors after her record-setting first season in 2015 with the Trojans. The junior was outstanding for the Trojans down their stretch run to a NCAA Sweet 16 bid, scoring seven of the Trojans final eight goals of the year. She finished the season as the team's leading goal scorer with 12 finishes, as well as the team's leader in points with 28. Her 12 goals were the fourth-most all-time by a Trojan in a season, while her 28 points were seventh-best. She appeared in all but one game for the Trojans, starting 20 of them. The junior had five multi-goal outings, including the first-ever hat trick by a Trojan in an NCAA match as she had three in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to bring the Trojans back from a 2-0 and then 3-2 deficit against Cal State Fullerton. She also netted two goals against crosstown rival UCLA as the Trojans defeated the Bruins for the first time ever in Westwood. Andrews also earned All-Pac-12 first team honors.

    A transfer from Notre Dame, Andrews excelled in her first two seasons of collegiate soccer with the Fighting Irish, racking up such honors as Soccer America All-Freshman First Team in 2013 and Second Team All-ACC in 2014.

    The 2013 Gatorade National High School Athlete of the Year, Andrews became the first winner to hail from New Hampshire. She also became the first student-athlete from New Hampshire to become a two-time Gatorade National High School Soccer Player of the Year (2013-12), while leading her team to a state title in 2012. Andrews has also been a mainstay in the U.S. National Team circuit since 2008.
