Stanford duo named to field hockey All-American team


Caroline Beaudoin and Kelsey Bing were named Longstreth/NFHCA Third Team All-Americans, as announced Wednesday by the organizations.

It is the first All-American honor for both, after a 2016 campaign that saw Beaudoin named the America East Defensive Player of the Year and Bing named America East Rookie of the Year.

The Cardinal claimed its first America East Conference championship in the 2016 season, in only its second year in the conference en route to its 15th appearance in the NCAA tournament.

Beaudoin and Bing, along with teammates Fran Tew and Sarah Helgeson, also previously earned All-Region recognition this year.

Men's soccer

For the fifth consecutive season under Jeremy Gunn and his staff, the Stanford men's soccer program had more than 10 of its student-athletes receive recognition from the conference for their combined work in the classroom and on the field when the Pac-12 announced its men's soccer all-academic squads on Wednesday afternoon.

Twelve Cardinal were on this year's list, the most in the conference. Since Gunn took over in 2012, Stanford has collected a total of 60 Pac-12 All-Academic honors, including a program-record 14 in 2015.

To be eligible for selection, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average, at least one year of enrollment at the institution and appear in at least 50 percent of the team's games. True freshmen are not eligible for Pac-12 all-academic teams.
