Duvall’s Kuehn delivers in the classroom as well as she does on the soccer pitch, and gets recognized with national honor as result

We also have this for you today. A Valley college athlete has received a big honor for her excellence in the classroom.

Linfield College senior women’s soccer player Sydney Kuehn, from Duvall, was named as an Academic All-American this week. Kuehn was chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America to its’ women’s soccer’s national Academic All-America second team. According to Linfield, she becomes the first player in the school’s soccer history to be recognized in this fashion.

In a statement, the soccer program’s head is thrilled. “We’re extremely proud of Sydney’s Academic All-America honor,” said Linfield director of soccer Steve Simmons. “Of all the awards she’s earned this season, to be recognized as one of our nation’s best on the field and in the classroom is truly remarkable and another point of pride for Linfield soccer.”

Kuehn, a 2015 Cedarcrest HS grad, currently holds down a 3.99 grade point average and is a pre-med major with an eye on medical school following her graduation next spring from the McMinnville, OR, college.

A congrats to Sydney from us!
