It seems the Colorado women’s lacrosse team had a solid season off the field as well.

On Tuesday, 10 Buffaloes players were named to the Pac-12 Conference’s All-Academic Team, with junior Olivia Aschman and sophomore Audrey Kingdom leading the way with first team honors.

Aschman posted a 3.81 GPA as an integrative physiology and psychology major, while Kingdom posted a 3.79 as a marketing major.

The Pac-12 all-academic teams require student-athletes to have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, be at least a sophomore academically, have completed at least one full year at their current institution prior to the start of the season while also competing in at least half of their team’s games.

The Buffs also had one second team selection in senior Carly Cox in addition to seven honorable mention selections — Sarah Brown, Sophie Castillo, Anna Collawn, Kelsie Garrison, Julia Lisella, Samantha Nemirov, and Caroline Perry.

The Buffs finished 14-6 in 2018, advancing to the league championship game for the second season and posting the program’s first victory in the NCAA Tournament before losing at Florida in the second round.
