DURHAM, N.C.-Duke University sophomore Andrew Wenger has been selected as a semifinalist for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy. Wenger is one of 15 semifinalists for the most prestigious college soccer award and one of three representatives from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Wenger is the lone sophomore represented among the semifinalists this year. Mike Grella was Duke's last Hermann Trophy semifinalist in 2008. Five Blue Devils in history have garnered the Hermann Trophy with Ali Curtis being the most recent winner in 1999.

Wenger, a central defender for the Blue Devils, helped anchor Duke's backline to six shutouts and a 0.85 goals against average. Voted the 2010 ACC Defensive Player of the Year, he was selected to the All-ACC first team for the second consecutive year. He is the first Blue Devil to earn first team recognition in his first two seasons since Jay Heaps did so in 1995 and 1996.

The native of Lititz, Pa., started all 20 games and led the team in minutes played with 1,866 overall. He registered assists against Virginia and Furman during the season. For his career Wenger has started 41 games at defense, played 3,762 minutes, registered four goals and five assists for 13 points and has helped post 13 shutouts.

Head coaches of Division I programs with current membership in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) will vote to determine the 2010 MAC Hermann Trophy recipient. Three finalists for the award will be announced on Friday, Dec. 10. They will be invited to the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis for a news conference on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011, where the winner will be announced. A dinner and formal presentation of the award will follow the news conference that evening.
