2012 Fall Academic All-Big Ten

Twelve members of the University of Minnesota women’s soccer team have been honored with Academic All-Big Ten selections, as announced by conference officials today.

On offense, first team All-Big Ten selection Taylor Uhl leads the team. Uhl was also named a third team All-American after tallying 21 goals and nine assists for the Gophers this season. She is joined by fellow forwards Steph Brandt, Taylor Wodnick, and Allie Phillips, who was already named a CoSIDA Academic All-America honoree.

Midfielders Olivia Bagnall and Katie Thyken also made the list. Sophomore Thyken was named CoSIDA Academic All-District for the 2012 season, and Bagnall, a senior, receives the accolade for the third straight year. Defenders Lauren Bauer, MacKenzie Misel, Marissa Price, Tamara Strahota, along with goalkeepers Cat Parkhill and Jackie Voigt, round out the selections. Redshirt seniors Strahota and Parkhill earn the award for the fourth straight season and true senior Price finishes her career with her third consecutive.

In order to qualify for Academic All-Big Ten honors, student-athletes must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a grade-point-average (GPA) of 3.0 or better.
