EVERY DI CHAMPION: Men's soccer | women's soccer

McGuire set the Creighton single-season record in goals (23) this season, while picking up United Soccer Coaches Second Team All-America honors.

Runners-up for the men’s award were Syracuse senior forward Levonte Johnson (Brampton, Ontario) and Duke junior midfielder Peter Stroud (Chester, N.J.).

Cooper, a previous MAC Hermann semifinalist (2021), earned both ACC Offensive Player of the Year and United Soccer Coaches First Team All-America honors in her sophomore season. She collected one of the best individual seasons in Duke history with a school-record 49 points.
