Local college women’s soccer players recognized for efforts in classroom, plus the scores from the pitch……

Time now for a little news this morning, all from soccer.

Two Mount Si High School graduates received recognition yesterday from their college conference for their hard work in the classroom.

Central Washington University’s Michaela “K.K.” Wallace and Concordia University (Portland)’s Karlie Hurley, both of whom are women’s soccer players for their respective schools, were named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s women’s soccer All-Academic team yesterday in recognition announced by the NCAA Division II conference’s office in Portland. They were among nearly 100 players from around the conference’s member schools all over the Northwest who received this recognition.

To earn the honor, both players had to achieve a 3.2 grade point average and be on the team for the full season. Wallace and Hurley are both seniors this fall with their respective teams, and are 2015 Mount Si High School graduates from North Bend. Wallace currently has a 3.66 GPA at Central and is majoring in business, while Hurley has a 3.74 at the Portland campus where she is majoring in exercise science.

A congrats to both young ladies, and again another fine example of the students being produced by your local high school. Both players are returners to this list, having been selected last year as well. Wallace also was selected in 2016.
