SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The University of Portland turned in a dominating conference season, capturing its ninth West Coast Conference title, and was rewarded by sweeping the yearly All-WCC awards. Senior All-American Angie Woznuk was selected as the WCC Player of the Year, while fellow senior All-American Stephanie Lopez garnered WCC Defensive Player of the Year honors for the second time in her career. Portland's Keelin Winters was named the Freshman of the Year, while Pilots' Head Coach Garrett Smith was selected as the Coach of the Year.

Woznuk is the sixth Pilot in WCC history to garner the league's Player of the Year award, following former UP standouts Christine Sinclair (2005, 04, 02), Erin Misaki (2000), Justi Baumgardt (1996), Shannon MacMillan (1995, 93), and Tiffeny Milbrett (1994, 92).

Lopez, who earned the WCC Defensive Player of the Year honor in 2005, made a significant impact on the Pilots' defense after she returned from World Cup competition. Lopez led a Pilots defense that allowed just one goal in conference play and led the WCC with six shutouts.

Winters is the ninth Pilot to be named the WCC's Freshman of the Year and the third in-a-row. She follows teammates Michelle Enyeart (2006) and Megan Rapinoe (2005), as well as former UP standouts Lindsey Huie (2002), Christine Sinclair (2001), Michelle French (1995), Holly Pierce (1994), Justi Baumgardt (1993), and Shannon MacMillan (1992).

For leading the Pilots to their record-tying ninth league crown, Smith was awarded his second WCC Coach of the Year honor. Smith previously earned the conference's top coaching honor in 2005.
