Schiro Named To Capital One Academic All-America
Nov. 29, 2012
BALTIMORE, Md. - Senior forward Nichole Schiro was honored Thursday, as a member of the Capital One Academic All-America team.
Schiro was one of 11 soccer players from across the nation to receive the prestigious award, and the first Greyhound since cross-country runner Tim Burns to make it on the All-America team in 2011.
In her time at Loyola, Schiro grabbed a record-breaking 52 goals and 119 points. The only players to come close to the senior's accomplishments were Ali Andrzejewski (2004-05) with 33 goals, and Carolyn Kennington (2003-06) with 89 points.
The senior forward was the only Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference player to receive the Offensive Player of the Year award for three consecutive years. Schiro has been a member of the All-MAAC First Team for three years, and MAAC All-Rookie team in 2009.
Schiro led the Greyhounds to three MAAC title games, and two NCAA tournament appearances, including this year's eighth trip to the first round, as Loyola took on Duke in Durham, N.C.
As two-time captain of the women's soccer team, the Okemos, Mich. native maintained accolades off the field as well. Schiro, a double major in biology and pre-medicine, earned a 3.88 grade point average in the classroom.
Schiro joins fellow MAAC forward Abi Cottam of Rider, on the Capital One Academic All-America team. The MAAC is one of only two conferences, including the Big East, to have two players on the team.
Danna Larsen of Baylor joins Schiro and Cottam as the third forward on the team. Amber Brooks of North Carolina, Paige Goeglein of Middle Tennessee State, and Notre Dame's Elizabeth Tucker were named as the midfielders on the team. Defenders Skylar Chew of Ball State, Ally Miller of Marquette, Natalie Norris of Utah State, and Ali Stahlke of Western Kentucky join goalkeeper Gabrielle Pakhtigian of LaSalle to round out the team.
The Capital One Academic All-America Division I Women's Soccer first team averaged a 3.941 G.P.A., including ten seniors and one junior.
