Karl repeats as Capital One Academic All-American

Denison junior goalkeeper Andrea Karl was named to the Division III Capital One Academic All-America first-team as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).  This is Karl's second-straight Academic All-America award.  She earned third-team accolades as a sophomore.

Karl was the lone goalkeeper selected to the 11-member first-team.  A biochemistry major and economics minor with a 4.0 grade point average, Karl started all 19 matches in 2012 while helping the Big Red reach the championship of the North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament.  She posted 55 saves and ended the season with a 1.05 goals against average in over 1700 minutes of play.

This is the 63rd Academic All-America award bestowed upon a Denison student-athlete.  Karl joins an exclusive group of 12 individuals who have earned more than one Academic All-America award in their career.

Created in 1952 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the Capital One Academic All-America Teams Program is a premier, nationwide college scholar-athlete awards program. It recognizes over 800 outstanding student-athletes annually in Division I, II, III and NAIA covering all NCAA championship sports.
