DURHAM, N.C. – Three Duke standouts – Maddy Haller, Mollie Pathman and Laura Weinberg -- have been named to the Capital One Academic All-District III women's soccer team, which was released on Friday, following a vote of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Along with the Duke trio, Aubrey Bledsoe (Wake Forest), Amber Brooks (UNC), Paige Goeglein (Middle Tenn. State), Becca Hemby (High Point), Jackie Logue (Wake Forest), Sarah Ann Waugh (Charlotte), Katie Stengel (Wake Forest) and Samantha Hodge (WCU) were named to the district team. All 11 student-athletes selected will move to the national ballot for Academic All-America accolades.
Haller, a 2011 Capital One Academic All-America selection, earned district accolades for the third straight year, after starting 11 of 19 matches on the defensive end for the Blue Devils. A product of South Salem, N.Y., Haller has helped lead Duke to five shutouts on the year. She is a history major and has notched a 3.58 grade-point average over her four-year career.
For the second straight season, Pathman received Academic All-District accolades. The 5-4 junior forward/defender owns a 3.88 grade-point average, while obtaining a psychology degree. A native of Durham, N.C., Pathman missed the first eight matches of 2012 due to playing in the U-20 World Cup. Since returning she has started 10 of 12 matches and registered four assists for the Blue Devils.
One of the top scorers in the nation, Weinberg earned Capital One academic honors for the second time in her career. Weinberg, who is out of Boca Raton, Fla., tallied an ACC-best 15 goals on the season and is only three away from matching Duke’s single-season record for goals. A first team All-ACC selection, Weinberg has also tallied seven assists and 37 points on the season. She is a sociology and history major with a 3.53 grade-point average.
Duke is awaiting the NCAA Tournament selection show on Monday, Nov. 5 at 4:30 p.m., which will air live on NCAA.com.
