For the second time this season, University of Cincinnati senior forward Ann Thomas (Cincinnati, Ohio/Northwest) has been named to the Soccerbuzz.com Elite Team of the Week. In addition, Thomas was also named to Soccer America?s National Team of the Week for the first time.

Thomas was named the Most Valuable Forward of the Tournament for her efforts. She leads UC with 11 goals and was named All-CUSA First Team.
