Two Cardinal women's soccer players have been named to the Pac-10 All-Academic First Team, as announced by Commissioner Tom Hansen today. Senior Rachel Buehler and junior Lizzy George were among the top 11 academic performers in the conference. To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.

Buehler, a Human Biology major, was named to the All-Academic First Team for the second-straight season, and was one of two Pac-10 players to be selected to both the All-Conference and All-Academic First Teams. This season, Buehler helped the Stanford defense to 15 shutouts and a .55 goals-against average, while maintaining a 4.00 GPA.

George, who was an All-Academic Honorable Mention last season, appeared in 22 contests for the Cardinal in 2006. The junior Human Biology major tallied three goals and three assists during the season and boasts a 3.88 GPA.

Eleven additional Cardinal players were recognized with All-Conference Honorable Mention. Senior Shari Summers, junior Erica Holland and junior April Wall were honored for the second-straight year, while Marisa Abegg, Kelley Birch, Allison Falk, Alex Gamble, Hillary Heath, Lea MacKinnon, Kate Mannino and Mimi Yuhas were first-time selections.
