MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) released Friday (Dec. 6) a list of 507 women's soccer student-athletes named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes as the association wraps up the 2013 slate in southern Alabama. Of the 507 named, four Marygrove women's soccer student-athletes – Andrea Aznar (Caracas, Venezuela/Oakland CC), Paige Bicoll (Warren, Mich./Mott), Rebecca Collins (Garden City, Mich./Garden City), and Kamry Miller (New Boston, Mich./UM-Dearborn) – were honored after they met or exceeded the requirements set forth to earn the national award.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
The national academic honor is the second for seniors Paige Bicoll and Rebecca Collins. Aznar and Miller earned the distinction in their first year of eligibility for the award. All of the aforementioned student-athletes were honored by the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) as Academic All-Americans earlier this season.
Showcasing their importance to the program on-and-off the field, all four Mustangs have appeared in a combined 178 games while donning the Green & Gold. Miller, over the course of two seasons at Marygrove, has accumulated 10 points, while Bicoll finished her four-year career with nine points on three goals and three assists.
