Katie Herba Honored as USCAA All-American Honorable Mention

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (November 10, 2017) – At the league's national honors banquet Thursday evening, the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) announced its Women's Soccer All-America Team. Junior forward Katie Herba (Perth, NY / Broadalbin-Perth) was recognized as an honorable mention. Herba's recognition Thursday was the latest in a decorated season for the junior, having picked up several all-conference, all-academic, and player of the week honors throughout the year as SUNY Delhi's season scoring leader. This is the second straight year Herba has received this honor, having been selected to the second team last year.

Playing in just 13 matches in 2017, Herba finished as SUNY Delhi's top scorer with 28 points on 11 goals and six assists. The Perth, NY native ended tied for second in the ACAA in both points and assists, and fourth in goals. Herba was named the ACAA's Athlete of the Week in back-to-back weeks for Sept. 3 and Sept. 10, where she scored four goals each against Penn State Hazleton and King's NY. In both contests, Herba tallied a hat trick before halftime. At last weekend's NIAC Championship, the Broadalbin-Perth graduate was accorded All-NIAC and NIAC All-Tournament honors. A former transfer from Fulton Montgomery Community College, Herba was also recently named to the All-ACAA First Team and ACAA All-Academic Team, majoring in Business and Technology Management with a 3.54 GPA. She is also a member of the SUNY Delhi women's basketball team.
