By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M junior Ally Watt was named to the United Soccer Coaches (USC) NCAA Division I Women’s All-America First Team, the organization announced Thursday evening.

Watt, who was named a semifinalist for the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy earlier in the week, picked up her first All-America recognition.

The mercurial forward is a two-time USC All-Southeast Region honoree. Watt led the SEC and ranks seventh in the nation with 15 goals on the season. She added three assists on the year to rank third in the league with 33 points. A two-time SEC Offensive Player of the Week in 2018, she notched six game-winning goals and scored the first goal of the match on nine occasions, including overtime golden goals in the regular-season finale at No. 17 South Carolina and the NCAA Tournament first round victory against North Texas.

The Colorado Springs, Colo., native has 70 Aggie caps, including 59 starts. She has logged 71 points on 33 goals, which ranks 10th on A&M’s career list, and five assists in her three seasons in Aggieland.

Watt was a redshirt during the 2016 campaign while playing for the United States Under-20 Women's National Team. She played in 14 matches, including five matches at the FIFA U20 Women's World Cup. Watt notched seven goals during her time with the United States U20 squad, including two tallies in World Cup action.

The Aggies have produced an All-American in six of the last seven campaigns, including Mikaela Harvey in 2015 and 2017, Shea Groom and Meghan Streight in 2014, Groom in 2013 and Streight in 2012. Texas A&M now boasts 15 USC All-Americans who have combined for 21 citations.
