TOWSON, Md. – Navy women’s soccer senior goalkeeper Elizabeth Hoerner (Lititz, Pa.) was named to the Capital One Academic All-America First Team, which was announced on Tuesday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Since 1997, Navy women’s soccer has now produced ten different Academic All-Americans. Of those 10 Naval Academy Academic All-Americans, six players were named to the First Team (Nicole Anuapu in 1997 & 1998; Kate Macfarlane in 2001; Lizzie Barnes in 2006 & 2008; Kari Weniger in 2007; Beth Reed in 2009 and now Elizabeth Hoerner in 2013).

An Honors Oceanography major, Hoerner owns a 3.86 grade-point average and ranks second in Military Order of Merit among the 1,098 midshipmen in the Class of 2013. She has ascended up the ranks in both Overall Order of Merit and Academic Order of Merit, having currently reached 63rd and 85th on both lists. The Lititz, Pa. native has been recognized on the Commandant’s List in each of her six semesters and named to the Superintendent’s List five times.

On the field, Hoerner put together a sensational senior season in 2013, leading the Midshipmen to a 16-win season and the program’s third-straight Patriot League Championship game.

As Navy’s captain, Hoerner tallied the conference’s second lowest goals-against average mark of 0.53, while posting nine solo shutouts (including eight in Patriot League play) and a career-best .853 save percentage on her way to earning her second-straight Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Year honor in 2013.

In addition to being named the conference’s top netminder, Hoerner also became the second Navy women’s soccer student-athlete to garner back-to-back Patriot League’s Women’s Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors (Nicole Aunapu in 1997 and 1998).


 

 

To be eligible for Academic All-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director.

Since the program’s inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 19,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.
