Liz Stock Named To District VI Academic All-America Team

For four years, Liz Stock has been a rock in goal for the HU women's soccer team. The rock has now drawn attention from more than her just her peers on campus. Stock has been named to the COSIDA (College Sports Information Directors Association) Capital One Academic All-America team for District VI. The Savage, Minn. senior was one of just three MIAC players named to the All-District team, which is selected in a vote of Sports Information Directors for the District, which covers all Division III teams in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Stock finished her distinguished HU career as the all-time leader in several categories, including games played for a goalie (56). This year, she appeared in 16 games, starting in 14 of them. Her efforts were a big reason the Pipers finished above .500 for the first time ever in MIAC play with a 5-4-3 mark. The team's 10 wins also tied a school record set in 2007.

Liz  fashioned three shutouts in 2011, including a 2-0 decision in her final game October 29 against St. Catherine's. Her final goals-against mark of 0.87 is a single-season standard.

She is equally as impressive off the field. A 4.0 student majoring in Biology and Religion, Liz has been on the Dean's List all six semesters here. In addition, she is a former Biology Student Of The Year, has won two scholarships for academic merit and is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.

Stock will vie with seven other goalies on the national ballot that will be sent out next week. The national All-American team will be announced November 28.
