Dominique James continues to make history for the University of North Texas women’s soccer program.
James, a Keller Central graduate, has become the first player in program history to be on the watch list for the Women’s MAC Hermann Trophy, UNT’s website reported. Previous winners of the trophy include members of World Cup-winning United States teams over the years.
James is coming off a junior season in which she became the first UNT player to achieve All-American status, making third team. Her other honors include two straight Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year awards and the C-USA Player of the Year, which was presented for the first time last season. She also was the winner of the conference’s Spirit and Service Award and was named to the league’s all-academic team.
James earned numerous honors in soccer and track at Keller Central, being an All-District soccer player in 2015 and setting the school’s long jump record.
