Santerre nets first team Academic all-District

BANNER ELK, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College senior Brooke Santerre (Port Republic, Md.) has been named to the 2011 Capital One Academic all-District III Women's Soccer Team, presented by Capital One and selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), announced College officials Friday.

Santerre garners academic all-district honors for the second straight season, earning first team recognition this year after becoming the first player in program history to be selected to the team last fall. The junior midfielder is in the midst of another solid season for the Bobcats, tallying eight goals, four assists, and 20 points en route to her second consecutive all-Conference Carolinas First Team selection.

A native of Port Republic, Md., Santerre is also a tremendous student, sporting a 3.93 grade point average as a psychology major and sociology minor. She is a member of the Alpha Chi Honor Society, and Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society. Santerre has also been listed on the Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll for each of the last four semesters.

Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Saturday when the top-seeded Bobcats host third-seeded Belmont Abbey College in the Conference Carolinas Tournament final at 1 p.m. on Tate Field. The Bobcats won the teams' regular season meeting by a 1-0 score line in Banner Elk.
