MORGANTOWN, W.Va. â€“ West Virginia University women’s soccer players Deana Everrett and Robin Rushton have been named to ESPN The Magazine’s Academic All-District Second Team announced today by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) officials.
Everrett, a psychology major, and Rushton, a political science major, were two of only 25 student-athletes to earn honors in the University Division of District 2. District 2 covers all universities in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
â€œIt is nice for these two seniors to be recognized for their effort on and off the field,â€ said Head Coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. â€œDeana and Robin have taken their academic work just as seriously as their athletic demands. They both are very deserving of this honor.â€
