Top Southeastern Conference honors also went to this pair.  Tymrak is the SEC Offensive Player of the Year while King picked up the SEC Defensive Player of the Year award.

 

Earlier this week, Tymrak was named among the 15 semifinalists for the 2012 Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy, collegiate soccer’s highest individual honor. Florida’s 2012 leader in goals (9), assists (12), points (30) and game-winning goals (5), Tymrak finished her career with her name dotting several Gator charts. She appears third on the Gators’ career charts in assists (40), sixth in points (104) and eighth for goals (32). Six times in 2012, Tymrak was named to various national teams of the week, including being named the Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week following her golden goal at then No. 2 Duke in late August. After scoring a goal in each of Florida’s three matches and notching three assists during the course of the SEC Tournament, Tymrak picked up her second SEC Tournament MVP honor.

 

This is the seventh time a Gator earned NSCAA All-America first team honors. She joins Erin Baxter (1997), Danielle Fotopoulos (1998), Heather Mitts (1999), Abby Wambach (1999, 2001) and Melanie Booth (2005) as Gators named to the NSCAA’s first team.

 

King earned a spot on the NSCAA All-America third team. She joined Tymrak on the All-SEC first team. She started every match at holding midfield and was second among the Gator field players with her average of 85.4 minutes per match. She finished fifth among the 2012 Gators with a career season-high 14 points. King also had career-highs for goals (5) and assists (4). Four of her goals came on consecutive Sundays in September, including heading in the game-winner versus New Mexico and providing UF with the tying goal at Auburn. She earned her second consecutive spot on the SEC All-Tournament team in 2012.
