Spalding University senior Alyssa Logan was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Division III women’s soccer second team by the College Sports Information Directors of America, marking the first time Spalding has had someone receive the prestigious award.
The CoSIDA Academic All-America Team is the premier academic award in collegiate athletics. To be nominated for the CoSIDA Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore with a 3.30 or higher cumulative grade point average and be a starter or significant reserve.
Logan, a Carmel, Ind. native, is a natural science major with a focus in physical therapy and holds a 4.0 GPA. The senior was also the recipient of the Louisville Women's Sports Network's 2016 WISH Courage Award after sharing her story about her battle with chron's disease. Earlier this year, Logan spent time at a "Girls in Sports" field trip at the KFC Yum Center where she spoke to 500 middle school aged girls alongside Olympic Gold Medalist Kelsi Worrell.
On the field, Logan anchored the SU defense to nine shutouts while scoring two goals and passing out four assists helping the Golden Eagles to an 11-5-2 record and second straight SLIAC Tournament berth.
