Stasi named to academic honors
Wayne State senior Christina Stasi was named to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District VII Women’s Soccer Team, selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
District VII represents athletes from the Great American Conference, Mid America Athletic Association and Northern Sun Conference, and it marks the first time that a Wildcat women’s soccer player has received this academic honor.
The program recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot with Academic All-Americans to be announced in early December.
Stasi, a senior forward, carries a 4.00 grade-point average majoring in sociology and psychology.
On the field this season, Stasi collected her third All-NSIC honor in four years with All-NSIC second-team honors after being named All-NSIC Honorable Mention as a freshman and junior. She led Wayne State in scoring this season with 10 points on four goals and two assists while playing in 17 games with 14 starts.
Stasi tied for the team lead in shots (26) and shots on goal (13) and had one game-winning goal this season. She recorded one goal with one assist in a 4-3 loss at Northern State and also scored goals against Minnesota Duluth, Minnesota Crookston and Minnesota State. Stasi ended her Wildcat career with 12 goals and four assists and was Wayne State’s leading scorer the last two seasons.
