The Monmouth College men’s and women’s soccer teams had four student-athletes named Division III Academic All-District by College Sports Communicators (formerly CoSIDA) on Tuesday. Each student-athlete honored will advance to the CSC Academic All-America ballot for Division III next month.
For the men’s team, seniors James Azzi (Sydney, Australia) and Wyatt Mayor (Galesburg, Illinois) were named Academic All-District. The women’s team had juniors Elizabeth Schmidt (Waverly, Iowa) and Madison Walker (Vernon Hills, Illinois) named Academic All-District.
To qualify for CSC Academic All-District, student-athletes must have a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA and participate in at least 50% of their teams games. Student-athletes are nominated by their own institution’s Sports Information Director and the awards are voted on by CSC members.
All four Scots soccer players will be on the All-America ballot with first-, second- and third-team honorees announced in December. The last time a Monmouth student-athlete was named a CSC/CoSIDA Academic All-American football player Matt Barnes in 2016. The Scots have had nine All-American honorees since 1983. The football and volleyball All-District selections will be announced next week.
