BOSTON, Mass. – For the first time in her collegiate career, senior midfielder Mikayla Guthrie (North Andover, Mass.) has been named to the Women's Soccer Google Cloud CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, as selected by Sports Information Directors from Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Guthrie will now appear on the national ballot for selection to the Google Cloud Academic All-America team which will be voted on by SID's from across the country and will be released on Tuesday, December 4. Guthrie was one of four student-athletes honored from the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) as Norwich University, Saint Joseph's College (ME) and Simmons University each landed a representative on the squad.
Guthrie, who sports a cumulative grade point average of 4.00 on a 4.00 scale and is an elementary education major, led the Saints in goals (14) and points (35) while ranking second in assists (7) this season all of which are new career highs for the senior. Guthrie was a perfect 1-for-1 in penalty kicks this fall and posted two game winners in victories of Newbury College and Norwich University. In the victory over Newbury, Guthrie scored a single-game program-record five goals in Emmanuel's 7-0 win.
Off the field, Guthrie is doing her student-teaching at the Lawrence School in Brookline, Mass where she is currently teaching third graders.
CoSIDA, which began its recognition of NCAA scholar athletes in the 1950's, has honored thousands of deserving recipients across all divisions in numerous sports. To be eligible, a student-athlete must be a starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a 4.00 scale, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his/her institution and be nominated by his/her Sports Information Director.
Emmanuel closed its best season since 2009 last week as the Saints registered a record of 14-6 and reached the GNAC Tournament semifinals for the first time since 2015. Their .700 winning percentage is the second-highest in program history and the 14 total victories ranks tied for second-most since the program's inception.
