USC Soccer Earns Academic Honors
Feb. 8, 2012
The 2011 USC women's soccer team picked up honors from the NSCAA for academic excellence this past season. The Women of Troy put together a total team grade point average of over a 3.0 to earn the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the 2010-11 academic year.
USC's strong academic effort was boosted by five Women of Troy who picked up All-Pac-12 academic accolades in 2011. For the second time in four years, USC landed five athletes on the honor roll for conference academic awards. Five Women of Troy earned Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention in the 2011 season, led by multiple career honorees Brittany Kerridge and Claire Schloemer. Sophomores Autumn Altamirano, Haley Boysen and Elizabeth Eddy all picked up their first academic awards with their 2011 selections.
The last time USC had five conference academic honorees was in 2008, when Kerridge and Schloemer were freshmen and ineligible for academic honors as first-year student-athletes. Kerridge has since earned All-Academic Honorable Mention in her sophomore, junior and senior seasons, and Schloemer has been an All-Academic Honorable Mention pick now as a junior and a senior.
With those five at the forefront of USC's academic achievements in 2011, the Trojans held a combined 3.05 team GPA to land recognition with the 2011 NSCAA Team Academic Award.
