Four Eagles were named to the 2013 Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District men and women’s soccer teams. The four honorees gave Biola the highest number of Academic All-District athletes in the Golden State Athletic Conference, which falls into the Capital One/CoSIDA College Division District Four.
Morgan Aukshunas was Biola’s lone winner on the women’s squad, while Daniel Chew, Stephen Day and Scott Hayes all received the nod on the men’s side.
The four honors between the two soccer teams are the most the squads have ever had in a single season. The soccer teams split three All-District honors between them last season. Also, As mentioned, the four honors are the most among GSAC schools, with Westmont earning three, Concordia bringing in two and Arizona Christian getting one.
Aukshunas, senior kinesiology major, and Day, senior journalism major, both earned their first career Capital One/CoSIDA honor. Chew, senior business administration major, and Hayes, senior intercultural studies major, earned the All-District honors last season. Hayes went on to be selected as an Academic All-American.
Athletes who are either a starter or key reserve and earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 over the course of their academic career are eligible to be nominated for the Capital One/CoSIDA All-American program.
