Emerson’s D’Andrea Named to ESPN: The Magazine Academic All-District Team
Emerson College Women’s soccer player Lindsay D’Andrea ’11 (Medford, N.J.) has been named to the 2010 ESPN: The Magazine Academic All-District first team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
D’Andrea, Emerson’s leading scorer in 2010 with 10 goals and eight assists, was a second team All-District pick in 2009. By being named to the first team, her name will appear on the national Academic All-America ballot.
A three-time Great Northeast Athletic Conference All-Star, D’Andrea was an Eastern College Athletic Conference All-New England selection in 2009 when she scored 19 goals and had nine assists. In her career she had 49 goals and 24 assists for 122 points. She also scored 10 game winning goals over her four years.
D’Andrea is a Writing, Literature and Publishing major. She is a member of the Emerson College Gold Key Honor society, and has been nominated for the Associated Writing Program award. She is the treasurer of Emerson’s Stork Magazine, an annual fiction journal dedicated to demystifying the publishing process and improving student writing. She has also volunteered for many community service projects during her undergraduate years.
D’Andrea is the first Emerson College female, and only the third Emerson student-athlete overall to make the Academic All-America Ballot. Rob Hennigan ’04 and Ben Chase ’08 from Emerson’s men’s basketball program were each chosen as Academic All-Americas after their inclusion on the national ballot.
Emerson is located in District One, a district which includes the New England states, New York State and the Canadian maritime provinces.
Started in 1952, the CoSIDA/ESPN: The Magazine Academic All-America program recognizes the achievements of student-athletes both on the field and in the classroom. Founded by former Southern Methodist University sports information director Lester Jordan, the Academic All-America program has honored thousands of student-athletes in over 20 sports for nearly six decades. To qualify for nomination, a student-athlete must have reached sophomore status, be a starter or important reserve and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or better.
