SIOUX FALLS, S.D.

Herba is a Business and Technology Management major, holding a 3.67 GPA.
In addition, Broncos Tiffany Leigh (Centereach, NY / Centereach), Samantha Friedman (Staten Island, NY / Notre Dame Academy) and Jacqueline Slentz (Edmeston, NY / Edmeston CS) were named to the ACAA Women's Soccer Honor Roll for maintaining GPA's of 3.2 or higher through at least 24 credits.
Herba, a native of Perth, NY, is SUNY Delhi's leading scorer this year with 25 points on ten goals and five assists. She is tied for first in the ACAA in assists, and ranks second and third in points and goals, respectively. Herba was named the ACAA's Athlete of the Week in back-to-back weeks for Sept. 3 and Sept. 10, where she scored four goals against Penn State Hazleton and King's NY. In both contests, Herba tallied a hat trick before halftime. The junior forward also scored goals against Villa Maria, where she also had two assists, and Cazenovia.
