Tennessee senior Caroline Brown was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Division I women’s soccer team. The team is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Brown was chosen for the second team. She previously made the third team in 2011, making her the only two-time Academic All-American in Tennessee soccer history.
“In many ways, recognition like this is the pinnacle of college athletics,” Lady Vols coach Brian Pensky said in a school release. “It represents the highest level of comprehensive excellence in the classroom and on the field — it means that Caroline is at the top of the pyramid in terms of the definition of student-athlete. This is quite an honor — a very well-deserved honor.”
Brown is a sports management major with a 3.96 GPA and has earned academic honors in each of her four seasons at UT.
Brown was an All-SEC second team selection, accounting for two of the four times in school history that a UT player had earned both All-SEC and Academic All-America honors in the same season. The other two were Vanessa Phillips-Bosshart in 2004 and Ali Christoph in 2006.
