TEMPE, Ariz. - Twelve Arizona State University women’s soccer players were recognized by the Pac-12 for their work in the classroom as the conference announced its annual All-Academic Teams on Thursday.
ASU’s four first-team members – graduate student Holland Crook (4.00 GPA), sophomore Cali Farquharson (3.90 GPA), senior Kaitlyn Pavlovich (4.00 GPA) and senior Jasmine Roth (4.00 GPA) – were the most of any school in the conference.
Pavlovich (Elementary Education) and Roth (Biochemistry) are both earning first-team distinction for the third year in a row (the maximum number possible for a student-athlete).
Crook (Educational Studies – graduate student), who earned second-team honors last year, is receiving Pac-12 All-Academic recognition for the third year in a row, as she was an honorable mention recipient two years ago.
Cali Farquharson (3.90 GPA/Biological Sciences) is receiving first-team honors in her first year of eligibility.
ASU’s 20 first-team honorees over the last six years are the most of any school in the Pac-12 during that span.
The Sun Devils also had eight student-athletes named to the honorable mention list: seniors Blair Alderson and Devin Marshall are receiving recognition for the second year in a row while seniors Jessica Domenichelli, Rachael Ritter and sophomores Tommi Goodman, (redshirt sophomore) Chandler Morris, Sara Tosti and redshirt freshman Alyssa Martinez all received recognition for the first time.
To be eligible for selection to the Pac-12 All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average, must have been at the school at least one year and be either a starter, significant contributor to the team or be a member of the team whose season was cut short due to injury.
