GREENWOOD, Ind. – The College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA) announced its Google Cloud Academic All-District Teams for soccer Thursday, with Georgia College Soccer's Ashlee Graham (Decatur, Georgia) making the list.

A senior goalkeeper, Graham owns a 3.97 GPA in Exercise Science.

This marks the first time Graham has picked up the academic honor in her stellar career. The first Bobcat goalkeeper to earn the honor, she gives Bobcat Soccer eight Academic All-District honorees all time, the most recent being Ally Barys in 2015. Graham now moves on to the Academic All-America ballot.

The Google Cloud Academic All-District® teams include the student-athletes listed at the link above and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

The Division II and III Google Cloud Academic All-America® program is partially financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2018-19 DII and DIII Academic AllAmerica® teams.

First-team Academic All-District™ honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third team All-America honorees will be released Dec. 5.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup and the 2017 PBC Sportsmanship Institution of the Year, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
