Updated 12/1/2010
CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference announced its 2010 Women's Soccer Academic All-MAC team Wednesday, as voted on by faculty athletic representatives from MAC institutions. A total of 37 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.

This year's squad was led by Toledo and Central Michigan, the two schools that led the NCAA in team GPA for the 2009-10 academic year. The Rockets topped the league with nine individuals named to the team. The Rockets were represented by Megan Blake, Erin Flynn, Natalia Gaitan, Brittany Hensler, Rachael Kravitz, Kristen Lynn, Jaimie Morsillo, Alyssa Niese and Vicki Traven. Central Michigan was right behind them with eight selections as Chelsi Abbott, Bailey Brandon, Claire Horton, Shay Mannino, Ashley Mejilla, Valerie Prause, Liesel Toth and Laura Twidle were honored for the Chippewas.

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.
