Junior midfielder Taylor Cammarata (Cary, N.C. / Green Hope) and freshman forward Helena Spencer (Warrenton, Va. / Patriot) were recognized on the honorable mention team.
Adams led the Tartans with 11 goals including seven game winners, tying both the freshman record for goals scored in a season and the most game winners in a season. She scored three game-winning goals in UAA play which ranked tied for the top of the conference.
