Other nominees include Kadeisha Buchanan (West Virginia), Ashley Lawrence (West Virginia), Kinley McNicoll (Wisconsin), Nichelle Prince (Ohio State) and Kailen Sheridan (Clemson).
Quinn, who is a product of Toronto, Canada, started the first four matches of her collegiate career before being saddled with injuries. After being injured against New Mexico on Sept. 1, Quinn only played in three other matches the rest of the season. The midfielder collected one assist against Boston College. She has been a part of Canada’s U-20 and U-17 National Teams.
The Canadian U-20 Players of the Year award is open to players eligible for the recent or upcoming FIFA U-20 World Cup events. Voting for the Canadian U-20 Players of the Year will be split evenly by Canadian national staff coaches and all other Canadian coaches.
