Soccer Produces 14 Academic All-Big Ten Honorees

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska soccer team continued its success in the classroom, as 14 Huskers earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition from the conference on Wednesday.

Senior Caroline Buelt garnered her team-high third Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2018. Buelt, a business administration major from Polk City, Iowa, was named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2017, and has claimed honor roll status on six occasions. Buelt started 12 of her 16 appearances for the Husker defense this season and compiled 1,026 minutes.

Eight Huskers made the Academic All-Big Ten Team for the second time, including seniors Lauren Smith and Savanah Uveges. Juniors Meg Brandt, Aubrei Corder, Hannah McKinney, Sinclaire Miramontez and Brenna Ochoa, as well as sophomore Mayte Corral, also made the list for the second time.

Smith, a five-time honor roll member, is scheduled to graduate next weekend with a degree in psychology. Uveges, a seven-time honor roll selection, earned third-team All-Big Ten honors in 2018 after scoring eight goals and tallying four assists.

Nebraska’s first-time honorees are Grace Brown, Natalie Cooke, Theresa Pujado, Sarah Thrush and Allison Ulness. All five players appeared in at least three games for the Huskers in 2018.

Nebraska’s 2018 total increases its number of Academic All-Big Ten selections to 97 since joining the conference in 2011. NU has produced double-digit honorees during all eight seasons as a member of the Big Ten.

To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, students must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.
