March 5, 2012
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Senior Faith Adams, who completed her final season with the Wake Forest field hockey program in 2011, has been announced as a member of the Division I National Academic Squad by Gladiator and the National Field Hockey Coaches' Association.
The National Academic Squad recognizes student-athletes that have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher through the first semester of the 2011-12 academic year.
Adams, who hails from Great Falls, Va., appeared in 61 contests for the Demon Deacons during her career, making 29 starts over the four-year span. She started all 20 games for Wake during the 2010 season en route to racking up career-best marks in goals (eight), assists (nine), total points (25) and shots on goal (13).
One of the top highlights of her collegiate career came during her junior season against California on Oct. 8, 2010. Adams took just three shots in the game, but all three went for goals as she recorded the Deacons' lone hat trick of the 2010 season.
During her senior year, the versatile midfielder/forward missed two stretches of games due to injuries, but still played in 12 games and dished out an assist in Wake Forest's 7-1 victory over Delaware on Sept. 25.
In total, she will finish her career as a Demon Deacon with 15 goals, 13 assists and 43 total points with an impressive 79.4 percent of her shots being tallied as on-target shots on goal.
Adams is on track to graduate in May with a degree in business and enterprise management and a minor in Spanish.
