ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--A record four Lobo women's soccer players were named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District VI Team selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Junior Alexis Ball and sophomore Jael Fanning earned first-team honors, Senior Jess Quador earned second-team honors and sophomore Amanda Collins earned third team honors. The Lobos have never had more than two recipients of the award in a season.

"That is an outstanding honor for the four of them," said head coach Kit Vela. "Our whole team does a good job in the classroom. Our team grade point average is around a 3.5. The girls are a product of their environment and they excel."
