COLUMBUS, Ohio Four members of the Ohio State women’s soccer team have added to the team's growing list of academic honors this season by being selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/adidas scholar All-America East Region team.

  • Senior Lara Dickenmann, from Kriens, Switzerland, was named first-team Scholar All-America East Region by NSCAA/adidas;
  • Junior Caitlin Colfer, from Albany, N.Y., was named second-team Scholar All-America East Region by NSCAA/adidas;
  • Senior Amanda Ball, from Centerville, Ohio, was named honorable mention scholar All-America East Region by NSCAA/adidas; and
  • Senior Keiana Mitchell, from Cincinnati, was named honorable mention scholar All-America East Region by NSCAA/adidas. 

In addition, the Ohio State team as a whole performed so well in the classroom that it was honored with a 2007 NSCAA/adidas Women's Team Academic Award for having a team grade point average of 3.22 over the course of the academic season.

“I complimented the team for a job well done in the classroom this year,” coach Lori Walker said. “Although expected, it is always rewarding as a coach when your team performs exceptionally well in the classroom as well as on the field.”

The Buckeyes, who advanced to play in the NCAA championships this past season for the fourth time in the last six years, were also well-represented on the Academic All-Big Ten Conference team this year. Ball, Colfer, Dickenmann and Mitchell led a total of 10 student-athletes named to the Big Ten’s academic honor roll at the conclusion of the season. Also honored were Kate Linehan for the third time in her career by the Big Ten and junior Amy Graeff, sophomores Ashley Bowyer, Marisa Simon and Lauren Thomas and second-year freshman Lauren Steuer.

To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten honors, student-athletes must be a letterwinner in at least their second year and carry a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better.
