2016 CoSIDA Academic All-District Women's Soccer Teams

St. Ambrose senior defender Kayla Anderson was named to the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team today.

The honor recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Nominees must be starters or important reserves, sophomores or older, with at least 3.30 cumulative grade point averages.

Anderson represents the District 3 College Division, which includes NAIA and two-year colleges from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. She now advances to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honoress will be selected in November.

Anderson, from Naperville, Ill., is a defensive leader who also leads the team in goals scored. She anchors a defense allowing just 0.94 goals per match. SAU has posted eight shutouts, including six shutouts in nine CCAC wins this season.

Offensively, Anderson, leads the team with eight goals and shares the team lead with 17 points. Two of her goals have been game winners.

She was named second team all-conference last season.

St. Ambrose (12-3-2, 9-2 CCAC) will wrap up the regular season Saturday with a 4:30 p.m. home match against No. 21 Cardinal Stritch. The third-place Bees will host a CCAC Tournament quarterfinal match on Saturday, Nov. 5.
