Miramontez Claims Scholar All-Region Honors

By NU Athletic Communications

Junior defender Sinclaire Miramontez added to her award haul on Monday, when she earned first-team Scholar All-West Region accolades from the United Soccer Coaches for the 2018 season.

Miramontez, a Lenexa, Kan., native, holds a 3.53 grade-point average in accounting. She garnered Academic All-Big Ten recognition for the second consecutive year when the conference announced its honorees last week. In addition, Miramontez is a four-time honor roll member.

Miramontez is a two-time first-team All-Big Ten performer and two-time All-Region selection. This season, she garnered a spot on the All-North Region first team after making the All-Midwest second team in 2017. In 2018, Miramontez started all 17 of her appearances and compiled 1,536 minutes on the back line for NU’s defense.

The United Soccer Coaches will announce Scholar All-Americans on Tuesday. Nebraska has two Scholar All-Americans in its history, Breanna Boyd (2002) and Jordan Jackson (2013).
