Dec. 13, 2017

CHICAGO – The United Soccer Coaches announced its All-Region Scholar teams on Wednesday, naming DePaul’s senior midfielder Alexa Ben as a First Team All-North/Central region selection.

Ben has been an integral part of the DePaul women's soccer team and its success in her four seasons as a Blue Demon.  Her achievements for hard work in the classroom include selections to the 2016 NSCAA Scholar-Athlete All-America Second Team, 2016 NSCAA Scholar-Athlete All-Region First Team, and 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District Second Team while being tabbed with BIG EAST All-Academic Team honors on three occasions.

On the field, Ben has received almost every award possible during her career at DePaul. She was the BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year (2016), first-team All-Conference (2015, 2016), NSCAA All-Northeast Region (first team in 2016, second team in 2015, third team in 2014) and NSCAA All-American Third Team (2016), contributing to a BIG EAST tournament title in 2014 and regular-season title in 2016. 

Ben, a Schaumburg native, has been a continual fighter for the Blue Demons as the 2017 Senior CLASS Award First Team selection scored on seven occasions, including a hat-trick in DePaul’s 6-3 win against Villanova on Oct. 22.  Ben also was named to the All-BIG EAST team for the fourth time in her career in 2017.  She received First Team honors in 2015, 2016, and 2017 while being a Second Team selection in 2014.  Ben, who was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year in 2016 and Rookie of the Year in 2014, is one of the most decorated Blue Demons in the women’s soccer program history.  She finished her career fourth in goals (27), second in assists (22) and third in points (76) for DePaul. 

Ben carries a 3.711 grade point average, majoring in public relations and advertising. She is now eligible for the United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-America team that will be announced later this week.
