(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Carnegie Mellon University women's soccer junior Alex Adams (Pittsburgh, Pa. / North Allegheny) is now a two-time All-American, as she was named to the 2021 United Soccer Coaches All-America Team for the second straight playing season. Adams was selected to the second team this season after being a third-team selection and the only freshman to be honored as an All-American in 2019.

Adams is one of five players making their second or third appearance on the team, which is made up of 51 players from across the nation.

This year, Adams finished the regular season as the team leader in goals scored with 11 and scored her fourth career NCAA playoff goal with a tally in the NCAA Division III Women's Sectional Semifinal against eighth-ranked MIT. Adams is a two-time All-Region honoree and two-time University Athletic Association (UAA) First Team awardee.

After two playing seasons, Adams is eighth on the Tartans' all-time points list with 61 points and is tied for seventh in goals scored with 26. Her 10 career game-winning goals puts her third all-time. As a freshman, Adams set a new season record for points with 34 and tied the goal scoring record and game-winng goals record with 14 and seven, respectively.

Adams is the second player in Carnegie Mellon women's soccer history to be a two-time United Soccer Coaches All-American. Tori Iatarola, a 2018 graduate, earned the honor her sophomore and senior seasons.
