TOWSON, Md. -- Tennessee senior Caroline Brown has been named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America® Division I women's soccer team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Brown earned second-team honors. She previously was a 2011 Capital One Academic All-America third-team selection, 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," Tennessee head coach Brian Pensky said. "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. In 2010-11, Brown was named to the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll. She was on the 2011 and 2012 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll and garnered 2011 Capital One Academic All-District 3 First Team and Capital One Academic All-America Third Team honors. Last year, Brown was named to the NSCAA Scholar All-South Region Second Team. Brown received 2013 Capital One Academic All-District 3 first-team honors on Oct. 31.
On Nov. 4, Brown received Second Team All-SEC honors. Brown accounted 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. In 2004, Vanessa Phillips-Bosshart garnered Second Team All-SEC and ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America second-team accolades. In 2006, Ali Christoph was a First Team All-SEC pick and a second-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American. In 2011, Brown earned Second Team All-SEC and Capital One Academic All-America third-team honors.
