Freshman Statistical Leaders (D-1 women's soccer; courtesy of CS360)

CollegeSoccer360.com again has compiled freshman statistical leaders, highlighting the top rookies for the 2010 season (based on official NCAA statistical leaders; note that the stats for two players in the NCAA listing did not match the numbers on the team pages – with the stats from the team sites included below).

Ohai

Kealia Ohai (North Carolina)

North Carolina boasts one of the top 1-2 punches among freshman scorers, as Kealia Ohai (14G-9A) is on the verge of becoming the nation's first freshman with double-digit goals and assists while fellow freshman forward Crystal Dunn (8G-8A) has been pouring in points over the past few weeks, after converting from an early-season role in the Tar Heels' starting defense.

There are four freshmen in the country with 8-plus goals and 8-plus assists (as of 11/18/10): Ohai, Dunn, South Florida's Venicia Reid (11G-9A) and Georgia State's Jewel Evans (8G-8A).

In addition to UNC's Ohai and Dunn (plus Kelly McFarlane, who had a 3-assist game vs. Missouri), a handful of other players on these lists are members of teams preparing to compete in the upcoming NCAA round-of-16: Duke forward Laura Weinberg and the impressive goalkeeping trio of Stanford's Emily Oliver, Ohio State's Rachel Middleman and Florida State's Kelsey Wys.

Some of the individuals on this page (such as Wys) are sophomores academically (i.e. "redshirt freshmen") and will be noted as so in later updates.

These listings will be updated throughout the rest of the season (including the addition of some more headshots and action photos).

Note – The NCAA ranks offensive players during the season based on per-game stats while these listings by CS360 simply rank the raw totals (for points, goals and assists). The NCAA also requires a minimum of 75% of the team's games played for the offensive leaders. Due to these two factors, it's possible that a few players are missing from this list ... feel free to forward that information to CS360 (editor@collegesoccer360.com) and we will add them to the listing.

In all the listings below, players in bold are from teams that qualified for the 2010 NCAA Championship (bold italics = team in upcoming NCAA round-of-16).
