Coady Garners CoSIDA Academic All-District Recognition

Springfield, Mass. - November 13, 2017 - Senior forward Mikaela Coady (Middletown, Conn.) of the Springfield College women's soccer program has been recognized for her hard work in the classroom as well as on the field, as she earned College Sports Information Directors Association of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District® honors, announced late last week.

Springfield College was one of five Division III institutions in District 1 to have both a male and female student-athlete earn CoSIDA Academic All-District® honors, as Brad Deckel of the men's soccer team, along with Coady, were both selected for the distinguished honor. Coady is now eligible for Academic All-America accolades, which will be voted upon later this fall.

Coady, a senior forward and Physician Assistant major at Springfield College, has been an offensive catalyst for the Pride this season, as she has recorded 21 points on nine goals and three assists, leading the Pride to an overall record of 15-6-1 and overall top seed in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Women's Soccer Championship Tournament. Additionally, Coady was recognized on the conference level, earning New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Second Team All-Conference honors during her senior season.

This upcoming weekend, Coady and the Pride will look to defend their ECAC title from a season ago and will take on Albright in the Semifinals on Saturday, November 18. First kick is set for 11 a.m. on Brock-Affleck Field.
