Five Trojans Earn Pac-12 Academic Honors|
Nov. 22, 2011
For the second time in four years, the USC women's soccer team has landed five athletes on the honor roll for conference academic awards. Five Women of Troy have earned Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention this season, led by multiple career honorees Brittany Kerridge and Claire Schloemer. Sophomores Autumn Altamirano, Haley Boysen and Elizabeth Eddy have all picked up their first academic awards with this year's selections.
All five Trojans hold over 3.0 cumulative GPAs. A sociology major, Autumn Altamirano leads the group with a 3.41 in her sophomore year to pull her first All-Academic honors along with fellow sophomores Haley Boysen (3.38 undeclared major) and Elizabeth Eddy (3.22 undeclared major). Meanwhile, USC's veterans Brittany Kerridge and Claire Schloemer both round out their Trojan careers with strong GPAs in difficult majors. Senior captain Brittany Kerridge holds a 3.36 GPA as an accounting major, and Claire Schloemer has a 3.03 as a health promotion and disease prevention major. Eddy and Kerridge also earned All-Pac-12 honors this season, with Kerridge on the All-Pac-12 Second Team and Eddy earning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention following USC's 2011 campaign.
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.
