Jun 19, 2020

STANFORD, Calif. - Four Stanford student-athletes were named Academic All-Americans on Friday, as the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced its women's at-large honorees. 

Emily Arbuthnott (women's tennis), Kelsey Bing (field hockey), Brooke Forde (women's swimming) and Erin Voss (women's swimming) were all named to the first team. The Academic All-America at-large teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.

Stanford has featured at least one Academic All-American from the women's at-large pool in each of the last four seasons, including back-to-back years with honors for the maximum number of candidates a school can nominate: four. Stanford women's swimming has featured at least one Academic All-American each of the last four seasons. 

An economics major, Arbuthnott holds a 4.16 GPA and is a CoSIDA Academic All-America first team recipient for the second consecutive season. A three-time ITA Scholar-Athlete, Arbuthnott also earned academic recognition at the conference level, being named to the 2020 Pac-12 All-Academic Honor Roll after two seasons on the Pac-12 All-Academic team (2018-19).
