She is the first player since Carrie Anderer '06CC in 2005 to receive the honor. Defender Amanda Goodhart joined on the second team and sophomore midfielder Paige Cuscovitch received an honorable mention nod.

Johnson's four goals moved the junior to third all-time in goals scored becoming only the fifth player to reach the 100th goal mark. With five assists in the game, she surpassed Marisa Marcellino's ('08CC) record of 25 for most assists in a season.

Goodhart posted a program season record 29 caused turnovers, leading the Ivy League for most of the season. The senior surpassed the record of 28 set by Antoinette Allen in 1999.
