Women’s Soccer Duo Earn Atlantic Sun All-Academic Honors

MACON, Ga. – As the conference ramps up for the Atlantic Sun Tournament, the league office began to roll out this year’s award winners on Wednesday with the announcement of the Women’s Soccer All-Academic Team. Two Jacksonville players – senior Ally Lee and junior Julia Burton – were among the 11 honorees.

Lee began this season as the league’s Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and one of 30 candidates across the country for the Senior CLASS Award. She picks up this honor from the conference for the first time as she carries a GPA of 3.52 in Elementary Education into her senior year. Lee has played a key role in three shutouts this season, while contributing a pair of assists.

Burton, a team captain along with Lee, also receives this academic award from the A-Sun for the first time in her career. An education major with a GPA of 3.83, Burton has started every match for the Dolphins this season and scored a pair of goals along with an assist.

"We're excited and proud for Julia and Ally to be rewarded for the hard work they've put in on and off the field," said Head Coach Brian Copham."They're both a huge part of our success this fall."

The Atlantic Sun will release its Player of the Year, All-Conference and All-Freshman awards on Thursday.
