COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio State women's soccer team recently received an NSCAA Team Academic Award after posting a 3.36 team grade-point average for the 2011-12 academic year.
In addition, 14 members of the team were named Academic All-Big Ten last week. The 14 selections were the most of any fall athletic team at Ohio State. To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher.
The Buckeyes, under the direction of head coach Lori Walker, finished the year with a 16-4-2 overall record, claiming their third Big Ten Tournament title, while advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in the past six seasons. Tiffany Cameron, who concluded her Ohio State career as the program’s all-time leading goal scorer, was named an NSCAA second team All-American.
