The 2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Women's Soccer Teams have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Maryville College's Hannah Clothier was named to the District 5 First-Team. This district contains the top NCAA Division III student-athletes from 10 states. Clothier, a sophomore midfielder from the Christian Academy of Knoxville, has compiled a 3.94-grade point average while majoring in child development with teacher licensure. When not excelling in the classroom, Hannah helped the Scots soccer program to a 14-3-2 overall record. MC's 6-0-1 mark within the USA South Athletic Conference earned Maryville a USA South Western Division regular season crown. In 19 games played, Clothier deposited seven goals while dishing out five assists in a strong offensive attack for the Scots.
For her consistent season, Hannah was named to the USA South First Team All-Conference squad as a midfielder after being named a First Team Western Division selection by the league.
This three-time Dean's list student-athlete is also a two-time USA South All-Academic Team honoree. She serves as a tutor at the Boys and Girls club as well as the Cooper Success Center.
"Hannah is so dedicated and diligent in anything she attempts," stated Maryville College Head Soccer Coach Pepe Fernandez. "It is well known within our team that she is one of the hardest workers in the soccer program. This award recognizes the effort she puts into both her athletic and academic pursuits. She is a role model and shining example of what's it takes to be a first-class student-athlete. We are very proud to have her in our soccer program."
First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second-, and third-team All-America honorees will be announced in December.
