Two members of the Calvin women’s soccer team have received ESPN Academic All-District IV honors. Senior Elaine Schnabel has been named to the ESPN Academic All-District IV first team in the college division while senior teammate Carly Prins has been named to the third team.
As a member of the first team, Schnabel now advances to the national ballot and is eligible for ESPN Academic All-America consideration. A native of Chesterton, Indiana, and a graduate of Chesterton High School, Schnabel is receiving all-district accolades for the second straight year. Last fall, she was named second team all-district.
A two-year starter in midfield, Schnabel has two goals and six assists this year on a Calvin team that is currently 14-2-2 overall and ranked 16th by d3soccer.com. Over the course of her Calvin career, Schnabel has career totals of 17 goals, 14 assists and 41 points. Of her 17 career goals, six have been game-winners.
An English major, Schnabel carries a grade point average of 3.94. She has been a three-time member of the MIAA Academic Honor Roll and a six-time member of the Calvin Dean’s List. As a student at Calvin, she has also been involved in the school’s bi-annual Festival of Faith and Writing. After graduating in the spring, she hopes to teach English as a second language (ESL) overseas.
Prins is a native of Hudsonville and a graduate of Unity Christian High School. Also a midfielder, Prins is in the midst of an oustanding senior season as she has 11 goals, two assists and 24 points this fall. She has career totals of 38 goals, 18 assists and 94 points and is ranked 10th on Calvin’s career list for goals.
A three-time first team All-MIAA selection, Prins was named to the All-Central Region first team last fall.
A physical education major with a minor in health education, Prins carries a 3.51 grade point average. She has been a two-time member of the MIAA Academic Honor Roll. She will return to Calvin next fall to studen-teach.
