Women's Soccer Players Garner Academic Awards
CHICAGO – Three members of DePaul’s women’s soccer team were recently recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) for their efforts both on and off the field. Lindsey Deason, Erin Davren and Shana Mills were selected to the NSCAA/adidas Scholar-Athlete team for the North and Central regions. All three were named to the region’s second team.
To be recognized by the NSCAA, student-athletes must be a junior or above in academic standing with a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.30. On the field, the student-athletes had to have started at least 50 percent of the team’s games.
Deason, a junior goalkeeper, is a Fitness Management major at DePaul. She turned in a stellar 2003 season earning the Conference USA Tournament Defensive MVP award after leading the Blue Demons to their first league championship. Davren, a junior defender, was the cornerstone of the DePaul defense that set a new school record with 0.83 goals against average. Mills, a senior midfielder, finished her career tied for first in DePaul history with 77 career matches played.
