Five Buffs Named To MPSF All-Academic Team
BOULDER - Five members of the University of Colorado lacrosse team were selected as Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Academic Scholar-Athletes, the conference announced Friday.
The MPSF recognizes student-athletes with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade-point-average, are at least a sophomore academically, have completed one full academic year at the institution prior to the season for which the award is being received and have competed in at least 50 percent of the institution's competition in his or her respective sport.
The Buffaloes named to the All-Academic team were defenders Perri Baker (business) and Maddie DeWinter (engineering), goalkeeper Paige Soenksen (international affairs and Chinese), and midfielders Tori Link (business) and Marie Moore (psychology). Soenksen and DeWinter had two of the top three GPAs among the 97 athletes honored with a 3.93 and 3.88, respectively.
Colorado finished 2015 with its second consecutive 11-win season posting an 11-7 overall record and was 5-4 in MPSF play. The Buffs also advanced to the semifinals of the MPSF tournament for a second time in its young two-year history as a Division I program.
