WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest's Aubrey Bledsoe, Jackie Logue and Katie Stengel were named to the Capital One Academic All-District women's soccer team, an award that honors both their academic achievements and accomplishments on the field.
All three players made the team for the second year in a row; Logue earned Academic All-District honors for the third straight year. By virtue of their all-district selection, the three Demon Deacons are eligible for the Capital One Academic All-America team.
Logue, a senior defender, is majoring in accountancy and has a 3.78 GPA. A three-year captain, she has started a school-record 87 games at Wake Forest. Logue has been a key part of the Wake Forest defense that has kept eight shutouts this season and ranks fourth in the ACC in goals against average.
Recently named to the All-ACC first team for the third time, Stengel has totaled seven goals and 17 points in 12 games this season to take over first place on the Wake Forest career scoring charts this season with 42 goals and 100 points. She missed the non-conference portion of the season while competing with the U.S. team that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup. Stengel is majoring in health and exercise science and has a 3.42 GPA.
Also named to the 2012 All-ACC team, Bledsoe has led the Wake Forest defense this season, keeping seven shutouts, including a shutout of Duke in last weekend's ACC Championship quarterfinals. She has played all but five minutes in goal this season, holding a 0.78 goals against average that ranks fourth-best in the conference. Bledsoe is majoring in health and exercise science and has a 3.91 GPA.
To be eligible for Academic All-District and All-America honors, a student-athlete must have at least sophomore standing and a GPA of at least 3.30. Voting is conducted by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Wake Forest will take on Maryland today at 7:30 p.m. in the ACC Championship semifinals in Cary, N.C. The game will be shown on ESPN3.
