Coaches in the NSCAA's Central Region (consisting of Conference USA, Big 12, Southland and SWAC schools) voted Truong and Hargreaves to second team honors. The tandem helped lead Rice to an 11-7-3 overall record and to the first regular season co-championship in the 12-year history of the soccer program.
Hargreaves garnered a host of awards in her first season of Division I soccer, including selection as the C-USA Freshman of the Year. A native of New Hope, Pa., Hargreaves totaled ten goals as a starter for all 21 games. She tied for seventh in the nation with six game-winning goals and ranked among the NCAA and C-USA statistical leaders in goals (10), points (23) and shots (76). The rookie led the Owl forwards in minutes played (1,552) and she scored a Rice record game-winning goal in four-straight games from Sept. 14-28. Hargreaves was one of just three freshmen to earn all-Central Region honors this season.
Truong was fourth on the team in minutes as a starter in the midfield, playing 92 percent of the team's total time. The Fort Worth, Tex., standout scored the game-tying goal against Big 12 power Oklahoma and also had a goal on the road at UAB. She assisted on game-winning goals in back-to-back games vs. Sam Houston State and Tulsa while maintaining a .400 shots-on-goal percentage. C-USA coaches voted Truong a first-team all-league honoree.
Only two schools (Baylor and West Virginia) had more selections make the first and second all-Central Region teams than Rice. This was the first time since 2004 that two Owls have earned all-region in the same year. Hargreaves and Truong follow their current Owl teammates Amy Beger and Jessica Howard as Rice players to earn all-region honors while playing the last three seasons under head coach Nicky Adams.
"Both Holly and Quinney and are completely deserving of this recognition and we are very proud of them," coach Adams said. "The amount of work and dedication that they put into this season was tremendous. The coaches and their teammates are excited to see them get recognized for their year-long effort, and we're already looking forward to next season."
