BALTIMORE - Loyola College junior midfielder Theresa Ferraina earned ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District II Women's Soccer First Team honors today for her success on the field and in the classroom.
Her teammate, fellow junior midfielder Lea Day was named to the Academic All-District II Second Team.
Ferraina, who carries a 4.0 grade-point average in accounting, is the Greyhounds' leading scorer this season, tallying seven goals, two assists and 16 points through 16 games. Two of her goals were game-winners in 1-0 decisions against Rider and Canisius.
She has two multi-goal games, scoring twice against both Saint Peter's and Richmond.
Day, who is a 3.88 grade-point average in business administration major, is tied for the team-lead with four assists. She is also tied for second on the team with three goals and 10 total points.
Ferraina and Day were two of 23 student-athletes from NCAA Division I schools in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, to be named to the first or second teams. Ferraina is now eligible for the Academic All-America teams.
