MAC Announces 2012 Women's Soccer Academic-All MAC Team

Updated 12/17/2012

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Mid-American Conference announced its 2012 Women's Soccer Academic All-MAC team Monday, as voted on by faculty athletic representatives from MAC institutions. A total of 41 student-athletes were named to the team. The number of honorees on the MAC All-Academic Team is the number that is set for the specific sport or 33% of the number of nominees, whichever is greater. The remaining student-athletes have been recognized as Academic Honorable Mention selections.

For the second year in a row Central Michigan made a statement in the MAC placing eight student-athletes on the All-Academic Team, the highest of the 12 institutions. The Chippewas had four returning winners in Bailey Brandon, Ashley Mejilla, Katie Slaughter, and Stefanie Turner along with newcomers Autumn Hawkins, Estee Outcalt, Kaely Schlosser and Laura Twilde. Kent State and Toledo both placed five individuals on the team that included returning winners Jessacca Gironda, Hannah Newhouse, Megan Blake, Natalia Gaitan and Rachael Kravitz.
 
The Academic All-MAC honor is for a student-athlete who has excelled in athletics and academics. To qualify, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA and have participated in at least 50 percent of the contests for that particular sport. First-year students and junior college transfers in their first year of residence are not eligible for the award.
