Two members of the Calvin women’s soccer team have received academic honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Senior Danielle Carter has been named to the NSCAA Division III Scholar All-North Central Region second team while senior Ashton Hearn has been named to the third team.
To be named an NSCAA Scholar All-Region honoree, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale). The player must also start more than 50 percent of all games and be nominated by an institution that is a current NSCAA College Services member.
A four-year starter in midfield, Carter (DeWitt/DeWitt HS) scored four goals and added two assists for a total of 10 points this fall. She scored game-winning goals against Adrian and Olivet and was named MIAA Offensive Player of the Week once as well as to the All-MIAA first team. She concluded her career with totals of 19 goals and 10 assists.
She was also named to the NSCAA All-Central Region second team.
A kinesiology major, Carter carries a 3.76 grade point average.
A goalkeeper, Hearn (Port Huron/Port Huron Northern HS) was also a four-year member of the Calvin women’s soccer team and a three-year starter in nets.
This fall, she compiled a goals-against-average of 0.67 and a won-loss record of 18-3-2 to go with 10 shutouts.
Over the course of her career, she recorded 33 shutouts and an overall won-loss record of 53-13-5.
Hearn carries a 3.88 grade point average at Calvin while majoring in speech pathology. Earlier this fall, she was named to the Capital One Division III Academic All-District team.
