PRINCETON, N.J. -- Four Ivies were recognized by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), earning Capitol One Academic All-District honors. Brown juniors Amber Bledsoe and Alison Mullin, Dartmouth senior Emma Brush and Yale senior Kristen Forster were named to the District 1 first team.
Bledsoe has a 3.62 grade point average (GPA) while majoring in Visual Arts, Mullin has a 3.85 GPA with a major in Cognitive Neuroscience, Brush is majoring in English and has a 3.80 GPA and Forster has a 3.76 GPA and is pursuing a degree in Psychology.
The 2012 Capital One Academic All-District® Women's Soccer Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.
The Academic All-District teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the second year of the expanded Academic All-America program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and twoâ€Âyear schools.
First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
