The National High School Coaches Association, NHSCA, is pleased to announce Hope Breslin of Massapequa High School in Massapequa, New York as the 2017 NHSCA National High School Senior Girls’ Soccer Athlete of the Year. 



Breslin had an outstanding high school career, leading her school to three Class AA state championships along with a runner-up finish.  Breslin and her teammates just missed winning a fourth straight state title in November 2016, losing to Arlington 2-1 in double overtime.  Massapequa did win four straight Long Island championships.



Breslin, who was New York’s Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior, ended her career as Massapequa’s all-time leading scorer with 82 goals in her career.  She had 35 goals this past season, which is a school record.  Breslin was the Class AA Player of the Year.  A National Honor Society student, Breslin will attend the University of Illinois on a scholarship.



“Hope is an excellent example what this award stands for,” said Eric Hess, Executive Director of the NHSCA.  “Hope has excelled on the soccer field and in the classroom.  We congratulate her on an outstanding high school career and wish her good luck in college.”



Breslin is the second New york athlete to win the NHSCA Girls’ Soccer Athlete of the Year Award.  Hannah Cerrone of Ketcham High School won the award in 2007.



This the 18th year straight year the NHSCA will honor achievers in the high school athletic community nationwide with its Athlete of the Year Award in 20 boys’ and girls’ sports.  Other winners will be announced throughout the rest of the 2016-2017 school year.



Each one of the honorees will receive a beautiful trophy, plus they will be honored in the National High School Sports Hall of Fame Museum that the NHSCA will be building in the near future.
