WEST POINT, N.Y. - -
The Army women's soccer team had nine players named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in Friday's announcement by the conference office. Junior Jaclyn Kalik headlined the field of 98 student athletes authoring a 4.029 grade point average during the fall semester.
One of four Army upperclassmen to be honored, Kalik was joined by classmates Molly McGuigan, Joey Molacek and Katie Wacker. Sophomores Jessica Koulabouth and Lara Wilson, along with freshmen Katie Holder, Courtney Johnson and Erica Ndlovu, rounded out Army's largest contingent since nine were selected in 2008. Johnson's 3.968 GPA in her first semester at West Point ranked third among the 19 freshmen on the honor roll.
It is the third straight year Kalik, McGuigan and Molacek were named to the league's academic honor roll and second time this year they earned league academic plaudits. The trio was part of a select field of 11 student-athletes named to the Patriot League's All-Academic team in November.
Kalik, one of just 10 league student-athletes to earn a 4.0 GPA or higher, was a member of the Dean's List for both terms in 2011 and 2012. The Life Sciences major received the Superintendent's Award for Excellence (top five percent of class) in 2011 and the Superintendent's Award for Achievement in 2012.
McGuigan is a three-time Patriot League first-team selection as a defender and two-time Mid-Atlantic All-Region pick. Molacek earned her second all-league citation after leading the Black Knights in scoring compiling 17 points in the fall.
American and Bucknell led the list, tying with 20 selections, followed by Lehigh and Lafayette with 14 and 13, respectively. Army and Holy Cross were next with nine selections each, while Navy placed eight and Colgate five.
To be eligible for the Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.20 grade-point average in the semester of their sport's competition.
