Natalia Torosian, The Inquirer's South Jersey girls' soccer player of the year from Lenape, has been named the National High School Coaches Association of Girls' Soccer player of the year.

Torosian, who has earned a soccer scholarship to the University of Florida, was notified last week.

"It is always difficult to be singled out because it's always a team effort, but it was a huge honor, and I am very happy to win it," Torosian said yesterday.

Torosian is one of the five finalists for The Inquirer's South Jersey senior female athlete of the year, which will be announced next Sunday.

This season, Torosian had 11 goals and 17 assists as Lenape went 25-0, won its second consecutive state Group 4 title, and was The Inquirer's No. 1 South Jersey team.
