Nov. 22, 2011

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Nine University of Utah women's soccer players were named to the Pac-12 Women's Soccer All-Academic Team, the conference office announced this week. Senior defender Lauren Porter was a first-team selection, while senior defender Lauren Dudley, and sophomore defender Jenny Hutton were second-team choices. Six other Utes earned Honorable Mention status.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 and be either a starter or significant contributor.

Porter and Dudley are both four-time Academic All-Conference honorees. Porter boasts a 3.87 GPA as a Psychology major, while Dudley carries a 3.73 GPA in Business Administration. Dudley is also a three-time Mountain West Conference Scholar-Athlete, while Porter won that award twice as well.

Hutton, who was an MWC Scholar-Athlete as a freshman, earns her first Academic All-Conference honor.

For Dudley, it's her second academic recognition this season, following her third consecutive CoSIDA second-team Academic All-District award.

The six other Utes to earn Honorable Mention All-Academic honors are senior forward Erin Dalley, senior goalkeeper Hannah Turpen, redshirt sophomore forward Allie Wisner, sophomore forward Jen Ericson, sophomore midfielder Leslie Muirhead, and sophomore midfielder Harley Spier.



This is Dalley's fourth Academic All-Conference honor and the third for Turpen. This is the second conference academic nod for Muirhead, Spier and Wisner, and the first for Ericson.
