The Ball State soccer team placed 11 players on the 2014 Academic All-Mid-American Conference Women's Soccer Team.

"I was very happy to see how well my players did," head coach Craig Roberts said. "It is something that not just me, but the other members of the staff really try to push and let them know that we want them to do well on the field and in school."

To be eligible for the team, players must obtain a 3.20 grade-point-average and have participated in at least 50 percent of their team's games. Freshman and junior college transfers are not eligible.

All-Mac selection Leah Mattingly achieved a 3.866 GPA, the highest on the team. Mattingly finished the season tied for the team lead with 12 points.

Last season's senior captains Cailey Stark, Victoria Jacobs and Nicole Pembleton also earned spots on the academic team.

"As a staff we promise to always support and help the girls with their academics," Roberts said. "We know that they came here not just for soccer."

Ball State finished the season 11-7-2, going 6-5 in Mid-American Conference play and losing to No. 1 seed Buffalo in the conference semifinals.
