Women's Soccer Has Four Players Earn Academic All-Pac-10 Honors
Four Oregon State women's soccer players were among the student-athletes recognized when Pacific-10 Conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced the conference's all-academic teams on Wednesday.
Crabtree, a junior, earned first-team honors after playing in 20 games as a midfielder. The Philosophy major carries a 3.89 grade point average and totaled three points on the year. The Eugene, Ore., native was a Second-Team Academic All-Pac-10 selection as a sophomore.
For Carter, a sophomore utility player, the second-team selection was her first such distinction. A native of Portland, Ore., Carter was third on the team in scoring with 12 points, and has a 3.63 GPA while majoring in Business.
Henderson, a junior midfielder from Littleton, Colo., led the team in scoring this season with 20 points on seven goals and six assists. Melendez, a junior defender from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., was an integral part of a much-improved OSU defense this year, and also earned second-team all-conference honors for her play.
To be considered for selection, student-athletes must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and be either a starter or a significant contributor.
